Krakow - that amazing, charismatic, and historic city is so full of interesting landmarks that to spend only one weekend is almost like not being there at all. Maybe you have already heard that Krakow has been becoming the city of bars. Resutanrats, clubs, candy shops, pijalnie wódky… There is one place next to another all of them being great. Once you get enough refreshed take a look around. The Jewish quarter of Kazimierz, the old Stare Miasto, Rynek Główny, Wawel castle and the cathedral - the most sacred place in Poland.

Paraguay – Jesuit Missions
Published: 12.12.2016
Jesuit missions are among the most attractive landmarks in Paragueay. I was very interested in such an attraction. I didn't have an idea how such missions look like. The Jeusit missions of Paraguay are mostly along the River Parana and some are also in Brasil, Bolivia, and many in Argentine (the province of Misiones). There are eight Jesuit villages in Paraguay. Three of them are quite well-úreserved. We are heading towards them right now. Missions (native villages) were used to re-education of locals (Guarani tribe) and were built in the 17th and 18th centuries. Villages look very similar. Usually, there is a large stone church with sacristy. Adjacent to it, there are several buildings - schools. Then there are dwellings of the natives.

Norway, Nordic Cities V – Oslo – A Walkthrough
Published: 10.12.2016
We are heading towards Rådhuset which Oslo's townhall built in the Classicist revival style. Its two rectangle towers are hard to not to see. The east tower is 66-meters high. Inside, there are chimes consisting of 38 bells. The northern tower is 63 meters high. The astronomical clock is situated on the south side. The clock is unique and also one of the largest in Europe. Its dial has 8,6 meters in diameter. The hand is 5,7 meters long. To be honest, I didn't like th town hall at first. And I learn the locals also needed some time to adjust. However, they consider it an integral part of their city which is partly given by its beautiful interior.
