Tips for trips
Last week we introduced you the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg in general. Today we visit the capital of Luxembourg taking a look at its history, sights and some interesting facts.
Several kilometers southwest of Zurich (ca 30) there is the sixth largest Swiss city of Winterhur. Heavily based on service and technology economy, the city inspired us to visit it.
As the weather outside is good for winter activities, we decided to go on a moderately demanding ski mountaineering ascent to Skalnata chata. The starting point was the valley station of the cable cars in Tatranská Lomnica, where a large-capacity car park and a complete visitor infrastructure have been built.
Last week we left crooked road of Trollstigen and set off to the unknown. Why the unknown? Perhaps because until today we have not come into conclusion where did we landed with our ferry. What is important that we had the first truly touristy day.
This time around we visit a small country in western Europe – Luxembourg. Today, we make an introduction to this wealthy country. In some of the following parts, we visit its beautiful places.
At the eastern foot of the Little Carpathians near the wine-growing town of Modra, the castle colossus Červený Kámen, protruding from the wooded landscape, will fascinate you from afar. You can get here either from the village of Častá or from the neighboring village of Píla.
This year's winter offers us wonderful weather and plenty of snow. That is why today we invite you for a winter hiking trip to the second highest peak of Oravská Magura - Kubínská hoľa (1,346 m above sea level), which is a popular destination for all the highest winter sports.
Last time, we visited Norway’s third largest city – Trondheim. Today, we move to Dombas and then we follow a Troll road known as Trollstigen.
This time we visit a small European country whose immediate neighbors are Austria and Switzerland. If you think it is Liechtenstein, do you think it is right. This principality extends into the Rhine Valley, surrounded by the majestic Alps.
The village of Bernolákovo is located in the western part of the Danubian Lowland, on the floodplain of the Little Danube and the Black Water. Here you will find the magnificent Esterházy Castle, several unique sacral buildings or even the ruins of a medieval castle.
There are not many options for tourism during winter months in the High Tatras as during the main season. Should you long for a climb up some of the summits open during the winter closure in the High Tatras, you may choos, for instance – Predni Solisko. In the article to follow we tell you about the up this Tatranian giant.
We travel again. After the visit in the church town of Gammelstad and Sweden’s capital Stockholm we move to Norway. We visit this time Trondheim, a port city on the shore of Trondheim Fjord and the Nidelva River.
We will continue our visit to the district town of Malacky today. After getting to know Pálffy Castle with the adjacent park, synagogue or military monuments, we moved to the parish Church of the Holy Trinity, which is one of the oldest preserved buildings in Malacky.
Last week we climbed Velky Rozsutec and intentionally walked around Janosik’s Holes (Janosikove Diery). This phenomena is so beautiful and unique we must devote one entire article to describe them. So today we see the most popular and most well-known tourist attraction in the Mala Fatra National Park.
We say goodbye to Albania today. Let's start again with a history that is inextricably linked with local monuments. Among the most important politicians after the founding of the Republic of Albania in 1912 was the Muslim Zog. He became Albanian president in 1924 and declared himself king four years later. He realized that Albania was too small a country to prosper on his own, so he established a relationship with Italy.
The more than 17,000-strong district town of Malacky is the heart of Dolní Záhoří, a region between the Morava River and the Little Carpathians. The very location of the city predestines it for its immense natural, cultural and architectural diversity. Get to know it in the following lines.
Tourism is great in winter as well. And this was our motto for our trip to the Mala Fatra Mountains and its peak Velky Rozsutec, the dominant sight of the mountain range.
After a week we return to the Onufri Museum. Upstairs we discover the unusual painting The Last Judgment. We are also interested in the icon of Emperor Constantine and his mother Helena. I have never seen such an icon anywhere. After the tour, we walk through the labyrinth of alleys to the upper fortress, where there is a beautiful view of Mount Skodre, where dictator Enver Hodža had his name etched by acid.
At the end of winter we set off to see the Natural Reservation of Rostun, in the Small Carpathian Mountain. We entered through the town of Plavecke Podhradi. All what we have seen is on the lines below.
From a trip to the mountains, I return to the concrete jungle of Tirana. The next day I plan a trip to Lake Komani. We drive towards the town of Shkoder, but in front of it we turn along the "yellow" road to the village of Komani. Then we go through the tunnel and get on a super small boat. I feel like I'm in another world. The mountains all around remind me of Norway, but the heat and water remind me of Thailand. Not beautiful.
Mengusovska valley, High Tatras, is a place which every fan of alpine tourism must have visited. Its beauty and grandeur is at its best during summer season yet the present article introduces you to tourism in the area in winter.
The Mala Fatra is a known and renown area. We hardly need to introduce it to you. This mountain range, along the High, Western, and Low Tatras, is considered one of the most beautiful and most visited mountain ranges in Slovakia. In the article today, we take you on a winter hike onto the main ridge of the Mala Fatra and its second highest peak of Maly Krivan.
Whatever you've heard about Albany, it won't stop luring and repelling, enticing and discouraging you. Nevertheless, I gave her a chance and went to form her own opinion of this contradictory country. Full of enthusiasm and expectations, I took a trip from Tirana to the nearest Quafstama National Park by jeep.
The unmistakable and easy-to-spot dominant of the North Bohemian landscape is one of the most visited places in the region. And this holds true in every season. The summit is easily accessible by cable car, a network of hiking trails and abundant curves of the asphalt road. Upstairs you will be amazed at the view of the entire northern half of Bohemia, as well as the unique multifunctional rotary hyperboloid building. It's Jested.
The Rickshaw Capital is a nickname for the metropolis of the country with the highest population density on the world. More in our article.
