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.

Transcarpathia: impossible not to fall in love

From childhood, getting used to the summer holidays, we try to plan our holidays exclusively for July-August.

Shanghai is the most western city in the East

When I first arrived in Beijing last year, I realized that I was apparently poorly prepared for this city. I imagined a stormy megalopolis crowded with people, where the verticals of huge skyscrapers intersect countless horizons of multi-level autobahns, where the ultramodern technologies of one of the most advanced countries of the world meet the traditions and color of one of the most ancient civilizations. My imagination drew a mixture of the scenery from the movie “Blade Runner” with the images of modern Asian cities that I saw on TV.

By no means do I want to say that Beijing disappointed me – not at all, it was just here that I first understood what the concept of “Asia” means in the urban dimension. Here, a lot of money meets with bright poverty. Continue reading
