Ah, Venice – the jewel of the Mediterranean! I am not sure there was anyone who counted the number of photos taken and published online after a trip to one of Italy’s most renowned cities. Or the number of romantic poems recited and proposal made on beautiful bridges, for that matter.
Dresden is the capital of Saxony and a very interesting city to explore. It has one of the most interesting architectural setups in the German cities we have so far visited.
The Dresden, we came to experience and like very much, has absolutely nothing to do with the far right movement PEGIDA the evening news are picturing. It has castles, galleries, museums, people performing in open air for the pleasure of others and quite a room to stroll and enjoy the beautiful architecture.
Given the amount of sights, I would suggest that a long weekend is needed to grasp as much as possible of the cultural richness of the city. Keep in mind that most of Dresden was destroyed during the Second World War and consequently rebuilt to its previous glory. Here is a list of must-see sights:
Switzerland is definitely among Europe’s most desired tourist destinations. And Lake Geneva (lac Léman in French) is one of the jewels in the Swiss crown. If it wasn’t for the high prices of pretty much everything, I am sure that Lake Geneva will be even more popular among travel enthusiasts. It certainly has a lot to offer.
Geneva is a beautiful city that feels a lot like France. Naturally, people speak more French there than any other language. The cuisine is exquisite and the services are as punctual as one can expect in Switzerland. And the lake…Oh, the lake! It is magnificent. It actually feels like as if you are at the seaside.
There is a lot to do in Stockholm. It is unbelievable how many museums they have. I would personally recommend Fotografiska, Skansen, Vasa Museum and Moderna Museet. And you must grab a bite at Östermalms’ Saluhall. Really, you should! Also, take the subway (red or blue lines) and visit all these wonderfully painted stops along the way. They are truly something.
Lisboa (we know it as Lisbon) was a destination I’ve always wanted to visit. I have heard so much from people who have been there, saw it on the big and small screens in movies and documentaries, made plans… Finally, last March I found myself in Portugal’s capital.
