Today we will visit the second most populous country in the world - the Republic of India, which is currently being severely tested by the uncontrolled spread of coronavirus. India is known for its religious diversity, is home to many ancient civilizations, is a crossroads of important trade routes and, last but not least, is famous for its gastronomic specialties. Head to the city of Agra, adorned with the witness of eternal love, the Taj Mahal, to the sacred city of Varanasi, which never sleeps, to the pink city of Jaipur, and to the sleepy temple city of Gokarna. We will also take a look at Ranthambore National Park, which is rightly designated as an Indian safari.

A city that is located in the Indian state of Karnataka is named after the Hindu goddess Mangaladevi. Mangalore is also a very significant Indian port on the shores of the Arabian Sea. The city is lined with the River Netravati on north and Gurupura on south that flow to the Arabian Sea.
The Indian city of Agra may not tell you much, but each of you must have heard at least once about the marble mausoleum of the Taj Mahal, a monument to eternal love.
A visit to the city on the banks of the sacred river Ganges is not just for everyone. If you want to know the real India, the ritualistic ceremonies and the cycle of life in Indian society, then Varanasi is for you. This mystical city is the most popular place of pilgrimage for Hindus and is also one of the longest inhabited cities in the world. Also known as the city of Lord Shiva, the god of creation and destroyer of the Universe. Faith says that anyone who dies in Varanasi will be freed from the cycle of reincarnation.
We have all heard of the rose city of Jaipur, India, at least once in our lives. Jaipur is the capital and largest city of Rajasthan. It attracts visitors mainly with its preserved palaces, temples, fortresses and monuments. It is not for nothing that it is called the Pink City.
India is so interesting to us that we had to simply stay there for a while more. We will visit the state of Karnataka today which is to be found in southwest Inda.
In the northwest part of Indie, a state of two Czech Republics and six times its population is set – its Gujarat. In this state, about six thousand years ago the Indus Valley Civilization along the Indus was born.
The Indian sub-continent offers many places to explore. This is one of the reasons why we stay there even this time. We take a look at another of its cities.
Kochi is the most important port in southwest India. For many centuries, it had been the center to spice trade. The city was known to Romans, Greeks, Jews, Syrians, Arabs, and Chinese.
Pakistan is a country that suffers from bad media presentation. News we read about the country are mostly informing us of terrorist attacks that, however, are off tourist areas. This presentation that suffocates other things about the country such as kind people, rich history, beautiful mountains, and divine cuisine.
The Rickshaw Capital is a nickname for the metropolis of the country with the highest population density on the world. More in our article.
The Heart of Pakistan or the Cultural Capital are probably the two most common nicknames for this huge city.
Before I travelled to India I had only uncertain idea of what I can expect from India. I imagined the India I knew from Bollywood movies as I love beautiful colorful saris, clinging bracelets, large earrings and mostly songs of Bollywood.
Paradise in the form of atolls located in the Indian Ocean lies about 10 hours flight from the Czech Republic. If you want to escape the mundane of today and enjoy a rest in exoticism, the Maldives is a great choice. You can choose either a resort or stay in a guesthouse on one of the inhabited islands, which is a cheaper option.
I should probably go to sleep as I have to get up at 3.30 am, but what if I'm not tired. Everything is packed up, I'm just wondering whether to take a raincoat or not when it reports a sunny 44 ° C. Finally I took her out of the trunk. But I recommend that you take it, it is practical when a cloud breaks up.
The nature reserve is huge, spreading over an area of more than 392 square kilometers, with only a section that is divided into several sections. When ordering a safari you must specify which zone to visit. Passing from one zone to another is forbidden, except for the all-day safari. But the price for this type of trip is enormous.
Today we return to the most beautiful area zoneto the Talao Lakes. It is about six o'clock in the morning. Unbelievable, right in front of us, the queen of arid lakes, the tigress Arrowhead, are walking down the road.
