The next day, after an exhausting climbing the stairs of the great wall of China, effort, admittedly, was a little. And therefore, for contrast I wanted something more calm and relaxing. In the end the choice fell on a Summer residence of the Chinese emperors, located 20 km Northwest of downtown Beijing. Huge Park ensemble with an area of 290 sq km, with residential buildings, temples and pavilions, which stretches along the banks of the artificial lake Kunming known not only to every Chinese citizen, but also visitors from other countries. Here there and go. 1. On a visit to the Park the summer Palace Beijing (the so-called Summer Palace of the Chinese themselves), it is desirable to take the entire day and to observe the General rule — early to come, God...

10 years ago Damascus was a safe city, and Syria is dear country. Very lucky for those travelers who had to go there in the times of totalitarian stagnation. We passed Egypt, Jordan. Positio the Syrian city of Bosra. Bosra to Damascus 140km, the bus costs £ 50 (1$). 20 fevralya 2006 we arrived in the Capital of Syria. Ran to the Embassy with a request to provide housing sootechestvennik journalists. There we were sent to Russian cultural center, and there we sold a thick guide to Syria for$ 10. Went to look for a hotel. After dozens of trash we found a decent hotel Afamia for the same money ($30 for 2-bed room).The next day we did not get out of the room – was preparing an article to the World News and tourist.PY, which we shamelessly put out with the...

Remember the movie "Tea with Mussolini"? This autobiographical movie about the childhood and youth of the famous Italian Director Franco Zeffirelli. The action takes place in the prewar and war years. Left without a mother and father's attention, the hero of the film falls on the education of three elderly British woman living in Florence.

This night Basel are waiting for all year: special calendars count the days not till 1 January, and Fasnacht (Fasnacht), the Shrovetide carnival.

Want to rent a yacht and go sailing on the French Riviera, enjoying the beauties of nature? Or have you swimming in your own boat and want to Park for a year? Or maybe just want to enjoy views of luxury yachts? In any of these cases, it is worth visiting the port in the modern city of Fontvieille in the Principality of Monaco. I have not yet met any one with a Prince or a billionaire, had to settle for a third option — a stroll in the port, which also was a great pleasure and impression. a Walk in Fontvieille and Monaco we started with the rosary of Princess grace. Also, we met here, if I understand correctly, a kind of thanksgiving plaque her husband, Prince Rainier III. 2. From the port overlooking the Oceanographic Museum, which we didn't visit, but...

Today I have the final part of the story of my solo journey through Switzerland, which ended on the South-West of the country near the biggest European dam. This bright and busy trip simply could not end something banal and the last I visited the location again gave me the sea of bright emotions and amazing scenery that I've tasted in absolute solitude, being with one-on-one with a fantastically beautiful nature and the majestic dam. 01. In the last part of the story I stopped at that got to the dam at Grande Dixence and looked at this impressive creation of human hands from the bottom — the foot of the dam. The road led further up and soon I found myself at the destination, reachable by car — Parking near the hotel at the dam. 02. The views from this point...

A Brief report on the first two days of our journey in the Kingdom of Morocco. on 8 September. Tuesday. Express Train with fairly wide seats and well about-about-very narrow doors (just extremely unhealthy narrow) brings us up from the airport Mohammed V at the station Casa-Port. the modern Station looks promising, just like-if not Africa at all! no, Africa! Outside everything is as it should be. each station along the "IBIS". Africa is Africa, and the order should be. And here also the vegetation here is gorgeous! Immediately gives the impression that lie ahead of us only beauty, amenity and widespread splendor! I have to Say that in Casablanca, we decided not to linger, because time is short, and you want a lot much. For the evening, and we reached the...

Moscow is a city where all enhanced. Of buildings, roads or the regular size here is not to find all giant. throughout the day it rained, but that didn't stop me from walking through the Russian capital. And the journey is quite impressive.. 02. Huge road along the lake. 03. The Moscow river. I somehow wildly irritating name..) On photos from Moscow boat sailing the Moskva river near the Moscow embankment. 04. The hotel, by the way without conder on the facade. 05. The design of this bridge over the river leaves much to be desired. 06. Without this wretched glazing, the bridge would look much better. 07. Inside the escalator. 08. Of the benefits: access to a wooden balcony. 09. In Moscow-city has city bikes. I hope in Kiev too such appears. 10. Park. 11...

Makasutu — a place without visiting which a trip to Gambia will not do. Here you will certainly recommend to visit, and loud the name Makasutu Culture Forest will only stir up the interest. In Russian-speaking Internet, the mysterious "cultural forest" is sometimes referred to as national Park, due to the difficulty of translation and is far from the truth. In fact, it is a natural reservation, which can impress a lot more than what you can see here. 1. In Makasutu the road goes, called South Bank Highway, that is South coast highway, it follows the contours of the coastline and stretches from Banjul to the Eastern edge of the Gambia, where makes a turn, crosses the river and returns back along the North shore in the beach haven ferry. Leaving early in the...

Dumaguete on the island of Negros — the most enjoyable of their Philippine cities. On the one hand, it is a city with all infrastructure. In this case there is even a semblance of a quay, and without mountains of garbage. the City is fairly grim, but at least there's a hell of traffic congestion in Cebu. were even a few historical buildings from the Spanish. the monument to the nuns. the Ferry terminal. At Negros everywhere black volcanic sand. the locals are caught in the sea such spiny shellfish. Near the waterfront there is a great cafe where they make fresh cakes, a rarity in the Philippines. God is good. the Trip was a failure. Just got to the town of Valencia, it started to rain. The town is very detailed rate table for motorcycles (called...

Day 2 Perhaps one of the most interesting and important historical and cultural attractions of Belgrade is the fortress Kalemegdan. 01. The fortress is situated on a 125 metres high hill, at the foot of which the rivers Sava and Danube. Go outside Paris and immediately get into the Park of the same name. In Turkish language the name "Kalemegdan" means "field before the fortress." 02. The street was a spring rain, the air was filled with ozone and the colours became even more juicy. 03. Love in front of the monument on the occasion of gratitude to France for assistance in the First world war. 04. Interesting decision not only enough bins to steers. Unfortunately, in Serbia a lot of smoke. 05. We went out on a high point with a magnificent view on Sava. Along...

So I want to see the third city in Iran — Isfahan. Beautiful parks, boulevards, numerous palaces, old bridges, good infrastructure, clean... But let's try to understand in what here the contradiction: Its heyday the town had reached approximately in the sixteenth century under Shah Abbas I Great, who made it the capital of the Safavids. Arrived here the Europeans of those days were astonished at the beauty, richness and grandeur of the capital, which in those days lived at least 600 thousand (!) people. Countless parks, palaces, mosques, madrassas, shops, public baths alone was 263! What we have at this time in Europe? In the largest city in Europe by the beginning of the XVI century — Paris, — there were about 300 thousand people. Naples — 270 thousand...

With Thailand all somehow did not develop. For the first time, back in 2008 and bought the tickets to Bangkok, the very next day went down for a month in the hospital. Another attempt to visit the shores of Siam, over the fact that instead of Bangkok, a weekend stuck in Dubai. Well, as the saying goes, God loves a Trinity. And the plane Rostov-on-don to Bangkok, landed safely at Suvarnabhumi airport. In Bangkok we will come back, but first went to "the den of sin and debauchery" — Sunny Pattaya. From Pattaya it was planned to go to Cambodia, which we eventually did, and to relax on the beaches of the nearby Islands. the First thing that bothered buying tickets for the upcoming trip, nosing around the street in search of the ticket office) ticket office...
