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.
This mixture of old and new defines Berlin. It makes it different. It makes it Multikulti (as Berliners love to call it). It makes it a historical and architectural landmark everyone should visit. It makes it a place to be in a wonderful sunny day.
I had the opportunity to shoot some photos in Cologne, Germany featuring clouds and other interesting objects. The first set that I published was featuring the Kölner Dom (Cologne Cathedral), but now it is time to offer you something in color.
