Join us for a tour in central Slovakia. We visit the district of Ziar nad Hronom, precisely the Royal mining town of Kremnica. Once, gold and silver was mined there and there is still a mint in operation. It is one of the oldest constantly operating undertakings in the world.
Erasmus University, Europe’s largest port, and the city which was built almost from scratch after the WWII making it sandbox for many architects to unleash their creativity. Rotterdam is unlike any other Dutch city and this also holds true in Europe-wide perspective.
After our introduction to Kremnica last week we set off now to the surroundings of the city. There are several options where to. You can either climb up to Kremnicky stit, go to the towns of Ihrac or Ziar, or visit Kremnice mines nearby. Our destinations were Tri krize, Skalka, Krahule village and we paid visit to recently bulit observation tower.
La Paz interested me the most of all places in Bolivia. I have always considered its unusual altitude interesting. I have always thought about how people live at 3600 meters of altitude. After I have spent some time at these altitudes in Ecuador or Peru, I have found out it is not hard at all. One gets simply used to it. Still, La Paz is quite a phenomena among large world cities for how high it is located. The city looks like it lays in a crater. Brick houses are built on slopes. It seems organized. Once you get closer, it is chaos of streets and houses-in-progress. There are high-rise buildings among historical structures down in downtown. It is quite an interesting mix. People travel by cable cars which simulate rapid-train system or subway. It is the fastest way how to get form one edge of the city to another.
It was a wonderful experience to visit the Romanian capital of Bucharest. Our vacation, however, was getting to its end. Therefore, we set off to one last adventure, the town of Sibiu.
