I wanted to get for a long time to the Montreal Cathedral. So I liked the Cathedral (and in particular a local museum), and the weather was sunny during our trip. The cathedral is impressive and really very beautiful! It looks quite good outside. There’s nothing excessive)))... We went inside...
After visiting Cala Aqulla and other beaches of Mallorca (Cala Bona, Cala Aqulla. Beaches. Mallorca. P.1), we went further towards Cala Bona... Here are pictures taken on our way... We saw some tower and decided to stop, we thought it could be an attraction. It turned out...
There are many good beaches on the island of Mallorca. And there are many very good ones)))... First, we went to one of the most beautiful beaches on the east coast - Cala Aqulla. The color of water on the beach is WOW!!! This is almost Varadero)))... And the sand here is just wonderful...
Here's a picture from the cathedral in Palma de Mallorca. Some details of the interior were even designed by Antoni Gaudi. This is the cathedral called La Seu. The cathedral is not only pretty old, but also quite beautiful. There even must be an inscription at the...
After walking around the town of Soller (Mallorca - Serra de Tramuntana, Soller), we arrived in Port de Soller. Previously, it was possible to get there only along pretty dangerous road, and now, there is a small tunnel, where you have to pay 5 Euros (but there are just a few minutes...
One day, we decided to look at  Serra de Tramuntana .  First of all, we wanted to visit the park of Raixa near the town of Palmanyola. So we went there. Unfortunately, it was closed. It's a pity(((... It's better to check opening days before the trip! Does...
After walking around the town of Arta, we arrived in the town of Capdepera and got to the medieval castle at the top of the hill (Mallorca - Arta, Capdepera, Colonia de Sant Pere. P.1). I don't remember the cost of the entrance, but something about 3 Euros. This fortress is...
We continue traveling around Mallorca . First, we went to the town of Arta - we passed it by for several times before and we were attracted by the view from the road of Santuari de Sant Salvador and of the church located next to it - Transfiguracio del Senyor. We parked at...
After visiting the square at the  Palace  and walking along streets (Our Stop In Monaco. P.2), we went further towards  Monte Carlo . The houses are really nice there. Do you have an income you need to hide from IRS? :) Would you like to buy an apartment there...
After looking at the  Oceanographic Museum  of Jacques-Yves Cousteau and wondering in the park next to it (Our Stop In Monaco. P.1), we went further around Monaco. Here's  St. Nicholas Cathedral , the burial place of Grace Kelly and Rainier III. It's...
Tuileries Quarter is located between the river and the Paris Opera on the one hand, the Place de la Concorde is to the west, and there’s the Louvre on the east. Graceful squares and austere gardens determine the character of the neighborhood. Monuments to members of the royal family and...
There are two most magnificent streets of Paris in neighborhoods close to the Seine in the north: the Champs Elysees Avenue , where numerous hotels and shops are located, and much more elegant Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, where the Elysee Palace is situated. The appearance of the gardens,...
The construction of the magnificent building, which gave the name to the whole quarter, was launched on the orders of Louis 14th in 1670. It was intended for the wounded and homeless veterans, many of whom had lost their livelihoods. The building was completed in 1676. Later the Cathedral des...
The left bank of the Seine has long been associated with poets, philosophers, artists and thinkers of various trends. Latin Quarter is a historic neighborhood located between the Luxembourg Gardens and the River Seine. Countless bookstores, art galleries, and cheap cafes are located here. The...
For over 200 years the name "Montmartre" is associated with the artists. Today, street artists thrive here mainly due to the tourists. Montmartre is located on a high hill, which is quite far from the center of Paris, but it is one of the main "tourist sights" of the city. The famous cabaret "...
The Opera Quarter is adjacent to the first quarter of the Tuileries , about which I was telling in one of my previous reviews. A masterpiece of the 19th century, Grands Boulevards designed by Baron Haussmann filled with a crowd of bank employees, theater-goers, onlookers and buyers - those who...
Paris Metro is one of the oldest subways of the world, opened in 1900 for the World exhibition. The words "Metro" and "Metropolitan" were worldwide distributed thanks to the Paris subway. The first lines passed under the streets strictly so as not to fall into the cellars of houses and this is why...
There were very few places to visit in  Malta , so there wasn't a lot to do except walk around and contemplate life. I liked the Maltese houses and their doors, which for some reason were painted in harsh and contrasting colors. Below are few examples of such doors.   Author:...
We were in  Livorno  for the first time. Despite the fact that I didn’t read anything interesting about this city, which I considered being an industrial one, it turned out to be a surprisingly pleasant, not a touristic city. What does Livorno look like? Just imagine non-touristic...
Our first stop of this cruise was  Monaco . It's hard to tell something new or simply interesting about such a popular place, I also do not want to repeat guide books (everyone has them), so I'll just tell you about the places we visited on our walk... We left the ship. And the...
After visiting the Archaeological Museum of Zadar, we continued along the streets of the Old Town... The historical center of the city square is called Narodni trg - the "People's Square". Here, you can see buildings from different eras, as well as throughout the Old Town. Usually, however, these...
The choice to stop at the port of  Zadar  by cruise companies may appear to be very strange, especially since the city is unattractive. And despite the fact that other Croatian cities, with more landmarks, are located so close. In general, the coastal cities...
After  looking at the city of Vigo from the top of the hill , we came back down . . .  It is probably unclear from the photo, but walking up and down the city was exhausting . . .   Pictured below was a monument on one of the streets. Whether dedicated to fishermen or bargemen...
What disadvantageously distinguishes European cruises from Caribbean ones are the views of the arrival ports. In the Caribbean, it's wonderful to watch the passing landscape from the deck or balcony as the ship approaches the island (usually, there are islands), yachts in the harbor, as...
