What sights to see in the Swedish ski resort of Auray?
The Swedish ski resort of Ore is an attraction in itself, because it stretched as much as 20 km along the shore of Lake Oreshen. There is no longer such an extended recreation area, not only in Sweden, but throughout Scandinavia. In fact, 4 settlements merged here – Ore-Byu, Ore-Duved, Ore-Tegfiel and Ore-Bjornen. They don’t have a clear border, they have already “penetrated” one into another in terms of residential infrastructure development, but for now everyone has their own ski slopes, varying in level of difficulty, ski lifts and light paths in the dark.
This area has been known for over a thousand years. The fact is that the Swedish Ore is on the way to Norwegian Trondheim. It is only 165 km to it, and even less than fifty to the border with Norway. In Trondheim, the Scandinavian pilgrims were going to bow to the relics of St. Olav, and the best road was just through Ore. Continue reading

What excursions to choose in the Czech Republic?
The Czech Republic is a unique country. I didn’t want to return to any other country again after the visit, but I wanted to go to the Czech Republic. As a result, it happened: I visited there twice as part of a tourist group. Both times we traveled by bus from Minsk, with visits to Brest, Poland, Austria and some other wonderful places. As soon as you pass the border of Belarus and get into Poland, it immediately becomes clear that there is something to see. It was Czech attractions that attracted me the most. It so happened that in no hotel did we stay longer than two or three days. So, having stayed in Prague in some inexpensive 3-star hotel, we went daily with an excursion to other Czech cities. Of course, we devoted the first day in the Czech Republic to Prague itself, looked at Stara Mesto and Mala Strana. It is impossible to describe in words how much I liked Charles Bridge and the Powder Tower, the Astronomical Clock on Old Town Square, Prague Castle, and many other famous places of this magnificent city.
