Family Holidays in Stockholm
It was no coincidence that we went to Stockholm on vacation. Our very good friends went to this Swiss city 3 times already and always come back with new vivid impressions, happy and without money. All the same, Stockholm is designed for tourists with a class above the average, but we listened to all the advice of our guests and decided at least for a short while, to go and see with our own eyes all the charm of this city. Popular sea resorts are already pretty fed up, and in the summer it is very difficult to endure the beach heat and crowds on the beaches.
Arriving in Stockholm, we were convinced that the capital of Sweden is not in vain considered one of the most popular and beautiful cities in the world. Even his son appreciated the architectural greatness of the city and the fatigue after the flight quickly left him.
Immediately upon arrival at the hotel, we purchased Stockholm cards, which are most convenient for tourists, because they are designed for a certain number of hours, during which you can ride any form of public transport, even water. The cost is certainly high, but we justified it, actively moving to different parts of the city, visiting the planned sights. It’s good that for children there is a 50% discount on the card, but as a result, urban transportation cost us about 5000 rubles. Continue reading
Traveling in Switzerland
In fact, Zermatt is an ecological village. Most of the vehicles operating in this village are powered by electric drives, but there are also trucks and tractors with conventional diesel engines. These trucks and tractors are used in construction. Zermatt is one of the popular ski resorts, with several no less famous peaks, the height of which reaches and exceeds the mark of 4 thousand meters. The famous four-thousander Alps – Matterhorn is located right there. It can be easily seen in the form of an emblem on the cover of Toblerone chocolates of any supermarket.
Loved the interesting architecture of the village. Most houses here are at least half wooden. They are special in that for the construction of such houses not logs or bars were used, but rectangular carriages. Also, the first floor of the houses and their piers are built of stone or brick and plastered. The roofs are covered with pieces of slate of about 80 * 80 cm, and 3 cm in thickness. Continue reading
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. Yes, it’s warmer in summer, and you don’t need to beg children from school, but is it worth excluding golden autumn, magical winter or blooming spring? Moreover, in Ukraine there are places where you can have a great time any segment of the year, and this is Transcarpathia.
