Kathmandu, Nepal
Type : Touristic Town
Kathmandu is the capital of Nepal, located on Kathmandu Valley at an altitude of 1300 meters and surrounded by the icy peaks of the Himalayas. The metropolitan area totals about 1.5 million inhabitants. The capital of pilgrims and hippies is a city full of mystery in which countless beliefs influence each other. It is called the "city of 1000 temples": Hindu temples, with three level roofs alternate with Buddhist pagodas and pavilions decorated with images of gods and demons masks. The contrast between modern and traditional in Kathmandu is pushed to the limit, with the medieval atmosphere from the Old Town, very different from the modern area. Nepal's capital has a university, museums and factories. A specific image seen everywhere: temples, palaces, pagodas, shops with traditional items, narrow streets - the promenade place for sacred cows. The Durbar Square is a place of reference in the Old Town where you feel like time stood still. You can find here the royal palace built in the sixteenth century and dedicated to the monkey king Hanuman. Believers address prayers and bring him offerings, believing that the god protects them against diseases. Here is worshiped the elephant-headed god Ganesha as well who brings wisdom and wealth. The Nepal kings were crowned in the courtyard, in which you enter through a golden gate. Nearby there is another courtyard where offerings such as cows or chickens are brought to mother goddess Durga in order to appease her. 7 of the 10 monuments of the country included in the UNESCO World Heritage can be found in Kathmandu. Hopefully we have given you enough reasons to visit this open air museum. You will discover the rest on the spot...

Monastery of Arkadi in Rethymno, Crete, Greece

Arkadi Monastery
Monastery of Arkadi in Rethymno, Crete, Greece
Crete, Greece
Crete, Greece
Type : Religious
The Arkadi Monastery is one of the most famous and beloved Orthodox monasteries in Crete, Greece, being located at only 23 kilometres in the southeast of the Rethymnon town. The Arkadi Monastery is surrounded by vineyards and olive groves. The monastery occupies an important role in the history of Crete; from here it starts the momentum towards gaining the independence of the island that was under the authority of the Ottoman Empire for more than two centuries. In 1866, the Arkadi monastery was used as a place of refuge by the Cretan rebels. The Arkadi Monastery was one of the biggest cultural centres during the Renaissance. Located 30 kilometres southwest of Rethymno, the Arkadi monastery is surrounded by olive groves and vineyards. The monastery is linked to some memorable events that occurred during the times when the island was fighting the Turks attacks. In the reflector’s door there still are visible traces of bullets, an old cypress in the courtyard of the monastery still keeps the bullet encrusted and the windmill was turned into a charnel house in which are preserved skulls of those who perished in the bloody slaughter. The Arkadi Monastery is a unique tourist attraction in Crete. This is the place of a true Greek tragedy and the walls of the monastery remained as a testimony of a tumultuous period in history. In 1866 the inhabitants of Crete were under Turkish rule, but they decided to rebel. During the riots, more than 900 people, mostly women and children, found refuge in the monastery. Turks began a siege of the Arkadi Monastery. After three days, the invaders managed to break the Greek defence and to penetrate the gates of the worship place. This is the moment when one of the most tragic events in the history of Crete happened. The people sheltered in the monastery refused to be taken captive and they burned the gunpowder barrels, blowing up the building. Thus perished nearly 1,000 Cretans as well as numerous Turks and the Arkadi Monastery, dating from the twelfth century was severely damaged. In 1870, only four years after the tragedy, the monastery was restored and today is considered to be a symbol of the struggle for freedom of the inhabitants of Crete.

Charles Bridge over the Vltava River is surely one of the most beautiful places in Prague. It is the oldest bridge in the city, built between XIV and XV centuries, linking the banks of the river. Embellished with statues and lamps, the bridge forms together with the gothic towers at each end a breath-taking historical monument. There is no better place in Prague for an evening walk.

It has 515 meters long and 9.50 meters wide, it has 16 pillars (with heights between 16 and 23 meters) and the paving is 13 meters above the Vltava River. Charles Bridge is decorated with 30 statues on both parapets. Most of them were placed there between 1706 and 1714. The first cross was placed on the Charles Bridge in the XIV century. The Bruncvik statue was placed there before 1503, but only its pedestal is exposed there. The statue is in the National Museum Lapidary and on the bridge there is a replica that’s exposed. The oldest preserved statue is the statue of St. John of Nepomulk from 1683 and the newest one is the statue of St. Cyril and St. Methodius from 1928. Charles Bridge in Prague manages to attract thousands of tourists, captivated by that magical moment, as if lost in time. It may happen due to its venerable and noisy history, to the gallery of saints keep here to eternity or maybe due to the unique view that we can admire in the direction of the Prague Castle. Whatever the reasons why the Charles Bridge in Prague is so appreciated and admired, tourists along with locals love to walk or idle along the wide sidewalks of hundreds of years, giving to the Czech capital that unique character that we can enjoy every day.

Paris, France
Paris, France
Type : Other
Place de la Concorde is the largest public square in Paris and separates the Tuileries gardens from the Champs-Elysees Boulevard. It was originally called Louis XV Market and in the middle it was placed an equestrian statue of Louis XV. The market has the shape of an octagon; its construction began in 1754 and it was completed in 1763. A period after its construction, the market has served as a meeting place for participants in the bloodiest revolution in the history of France. After revolutionaries seized power, they renamed it The Revolution Square and replaced the statue of King Louis XV with a guillotine. Between 1793 and 1795, over 1300 people were beheaded, including Louis XVI, Marie Antoinette, Danton and Robespierre. The name of Place de la Concorde symbolises the end of an era of suffering and the hope for a better future. The Obelisk of Luxor, a pink granite monolith was given to France in 1829 by the viceroy of Egypt, Mehemet Ali and replaced the guillotine from the Place de la Concorde. The building, which used to mark the entrance in the Amon temple has over 3300 years old and it is decorated with hieroglyphs representing the power of the Pharaohs Ramesses II and III. The obelisk that was brought in 1833 weighs 230 tons and has 22.83 meters. Having survived more than 33 centuries, the obelisk has suffered most damage in the last half of the last century due to exposure to pollution from exhaust fumes. The obelisk is a monument with four inscribed surfaces forming a pyramid to the top. Egyptians rose them by two and they were associated with sunlight which grew in thickness when approaching the ground. In each corner of the octagon forming the market there are statues representing the French cities: Lille, Strasbourg, Lyon, Marseille, Bordeaux, Nantes, Brest and Rouen. In the south-east of the market, the Concorde Bridge passes over the Seine towards the Bourbon Palace where the National Assembly is located. Near the Obelisk, in the Tuileries gardens you can find the Orangerie Museum.

Tsarevo is a complex holiday destination because it offers both sea and mountains. Once you get here it would be a shame not to spend some time in the forests present here. Moreover this mountain known under the name of Stradzha is a real history book because if we take into consideration the impressive number of caves where we can see and explore traces of some ancient civilisations we realise how boundless our history is until present. A very well-known tradition in this area which delights every tourist are those dances that take place in the village of Bulgari on every special occasion, holidays, at the opening of festivals etc.

Type : Monument
Borobudur Temple, located 42 km northwest of the Javanese province, Yogyakarta, Indonesia, is the largest Buddhist temple in the world. It is built in the shape of a pyramid with a square base of 118 m length. Borobudur was considered a "kumagara" (a covered structure) and agreed to be dwelling on Sakyamuni Buddha when he was in his mother's womb. The temple’s founders wanted Buddha's teachings to be represented visually. At the same time, it wanted to suggest this power of Sakyamuni through the building structure. Borobudur temple founders' intention was expressing the cosmic and all-powerful essence of Buddha. The Borobudur name comes from the Sanskrit words "Vihara Buddha Uhr" and that means Buddhist monastery on the hill (height). The temple is built in six square terraces, placed on the bottom and on top of these there are three circular terraces that lead to the top. Seen from above, it appears as a giant mandala of Borobudur. Paintings on the temple are long extinct, but it is said that stone was painted in white or yellow gold to seize the sun. From the main entrance, in the east, the pilgrims were surrounding the temple clockwise, on the corridors of the terraces, to the top, where the main monument stupa was. The walls in the corridors have beautiful relief work, totalling 1,460 panels with narrative sculptures, covering 1900 square meters and 1212 panels carved with Buddhist doctrines and aspects of life from 1,000 years ago in Java, covering 600 m side. The carved corridors have an approximate length of 2,500 meters, totalling about one million carved plaques. Some Buddhists say that this monument is a "gigantic book" illustrating Buddha Sakyamuni’s life and his principles.

Wailing Wall
Wailing Wall
Gerusaleme, Israel
Gerusaleme, Israel
Type : Religious
The Wailing Wall in Jerusalem is the most loved place by Jews all around the world. Located in the western part of the city on the edge of the Mount of the Temple (the mosque under the golden dome), the Wailing Wall is located at the crossroads of two major cultures and faiths: Jewish and Muslim. The remaining wall from the old temple is the holiest place for Jews because it is all that remains of the Temple of Solomon. This place is known by many names: the Western Wall, the Wailing Wall, Kotel. In ancient Hebrew texts the place is often called the "western wall", but it is not known whether it refers to the current wall or to another wall of the temple, which today no longer exists. The term "Wailing Wall" appears only in the nineteenth century, in English literature. This last name was gained from the Jewish tradition to come here and bemoan the state of Jerusalem and the Holy Temple demolition. At the main entrance to the Western Wall there are scanners installed. One of the best times to visit the Western Wall is during the celebration of the Sabbath from Friday evening until Saturday morning when Jews gather in the huge market, read and dance to traditional Jewish songs until sunset. On the esplanade in front of the Wailing Wall take place, besides prayers, very different events: on Monday and Thursday mornings are held ceremonies during which the 13-year-old boys receive the religious full age; on Friday evenings the students celebrate at sunset the arrival of the Sabbath; newlyweds come to take photos of themselves and first graders receive here their first bible. Hebrew believers place tickets in the spaces between the stones of the wall on which they write their wishes, while others pray aloud in various languages. Twice a year, before Easter and Hebrew New Year (in the fall) those especially selected go to the Western Wall, take out the pieces of paper and then they bury them on the Mount of Olives.

The Bigar Cascade Falls
The beautiful waterfall in the world is in Romania
Caras-severin, Romania
Caras-severin, Romania
Type : Mountain
Bigar cascade from Caras-Severin was listed among the most beautiful destinations in the world. Bigar cascade became widely known after 2013, when it was declared as the most beautiful waterfall in the world by the American website "The World Geography" “which was placed first in their top of the most impressive waterfalls in the world”. Earlier, in 2010, "National Geographic Traveler," an international tour guide, was making the first referral about this waterfall in the tourist specialised press. The waterfall is located at 12 kilometers from the town of Bozovici and is part of the National Park Nera Beuşniţa. The waterfall is formed by an underground spring water running down a limestone wall shaped like a cone, about 7-8 meters high, completely covered by moss. Located in the National Park Nera - Beusnita in Caras-Severin, Minis Valley, halfway between localities Anina and Bozovici on Route 57B, Bigar cascade is basically where Bigăr fount flows into the river Minis. In Banat, the intermittent spring locals are calling it as a spring where the water comes out from beneath the rock. My recommendation is to visit the place outside the holiday season, when there are no leaves, because only then you will enjoy, and feel the charm of the place. Otherwise, even in a gloomy day end of November, when gave to darken, tourists were plenty around, not necessarily the ones that will be your greatest pleasure to meet them, true that at that time there was no visiting fee. In order to see Bigar cascade you do not necessarily have to pay 5 euro. It is enough to stop on the National Road 57B, next to the 45th parallel, and have a look. But if you came all the way till here, it's a shame not to pass through the wooden gate, to see the waterfall from above or from aside, or to take a walk till where the Izbucul Bigar spring and see from where comes the wonder downstream or to climb very careful towards the Grotto at Bigar, all of these for just a few minutes’ walk away from road, the opening in the heart of Minis Gorge. The surrounding scenery is fabulous, and you can’t otherwise until you reach the waterfall, regardless from any direction you will approach this wonderful waterfall place.

Northumberland, United Kingdom
Northumberland, United Kingdom
Type : Cultural
Alnwick Castle in England is an impressive fortified building, located in the Northumberland County, in the city with the same name. Currently, the castle, which was many times renovated, is the residence of the Duke of Northumberland (n. 1956), Ralph Percy, son of Hugh Percy, the tenth Duke of Northumberland and of Lady Elizabeth Montagu Douglas Scott. Percy lives with Isobel Jane Richard, his wife, and their children in Alnwick Castle, occupying only a part. The family permits visiting the impressive building during summer. Alnwick Castle is the second largest inhabited building of this kind in England, after Windsor Castle, and also the tenth most visited. After the Second World War, as happened with most castles in Europe, the one in Alnwick was used in the educational system, functioning as a school for girls (from 1945 to 1975), as a school of pedagogy, and since 1981 as an additional campus in the St. Cloud State University. Currently, the Duke’s house is also an important cultural centre in northern England, the castle hosting various exhibitions and other manifestations of art. Also, history and neoclassical architecture enthusiasts can visit parts of the castle, but only during summer, because that’s when the Duke’s family decided it could be visited. In the north side of the castle, is flowing the river Aln. There is a ravine that actually separates the building and the entire estate from the city itself. Meanwhile, tourists can enjoy the two parks, the first located in the northern part and known by the locals as "The Pastures" (grasslands) and the second, much larger, located near The Pastures, and known as the Hulne Park . In fact, Alnwick Castle in England became famous, not necessarily because of its history and its almost perfectly preserved beauty, but because of the series of films "Harry Potter". Many scenes have been shot in the castle and in the surroundings, the outside of the castle being actually the outside of the Hogwarts Castle in the film. With minor modifications, the fortified building became known to the general public and therefore heavily visited by tourists. But here were filmed other films as well, such as "Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves," "Elizabeth" etc.

Type : Parc
The giant construction of the ancient world, the Great Chinese Wall measures 21196.18 kilometres long, being even today "the longest wall on Earth". No one knows exactly which Chinese state decided to surround its territory with waves of earth and stone. In order to protect the state they had unified, the first emperor of China, Qin (221-210 BC), commands to link together the fortifications built by his predecessors. So he would continue building both east and west, with a total length of 5,000 kilometres, achieving the longest wall that would subsequently become famous. During the next dynasty, the Han (206-220 BC), the wall was again extended eastward and westward to a length of 21196.18 km. Having suffered great damage over a millennium, the Great Wall was rebuilt for about 6400 km during the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644), the dynasty that also established the capital of Beijing (the form in which it kept until today). Winding over the mountains and hills, and also through deep valleys, the wall, which is provided from place to place with rectangular forts and towers for defence, has a height of 12 meters and a width of 6.5 meters. Paved with stone, it was used as both a strategic road and a trade route. Overgrown since the nineteenth century, the Great Wall was taken under government protection in 1952, being declared a historical monument of China. However, only a small portion of the wall was rehabilitated and it’s still accessible to tourists.
