The history of  Louvre  goes back to the Middle Ages. Initially, it was a fortress built in 1190 by King Philip Augustus to protect  Paris  against the Vikings. At the time of Francis I, its towers were destroyed, and a palace in the Renaissance style was built in their...
I want to tell you about three historic districts of  Paris  which are close to each other. Here, in the Ile de la Cite, which resembles a boat, Paris was born in the middle of  Seine . You can see the remains of the first buildings in the archaeological excavations of...
This river has a special charm. There are very few cities in Europe which shape is determined by a river. The  Seine  is the main axis of  Paris : all distances are measured from its banks, the numbering of houses begins from the embankments. The Seine divides Paris in...
Bari is a port city on the Adriatic Sea in Italy. It is the quiet, hot and sleepy capital of one of the southern regions of the country. It has a rich history stretching back many centuries; however, it does not have places of interest attractive for masses of tourists. Therefore, it is known...
The museum is called  Yad La-Shiryon, b ut it also goes by the name Beitha-Shiryon.  It is opened between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Friday is a short day. The entrance ticket was about $8. Nearby there was a center for the study of bird migration. Radar is already in the territory....

Latrun is a site in Israel, west of  Jerusalem . I read in the guidebook that there is a Trappist Monastery and decided to visit it. The trappist monks get up before dawn, do not eat meat, work a lot and are incommunicative. We didn't see any monks, but we walked around the territory of the...
We have finally visited Pompeii. This review is exclusively about the ruins. I used to think that there is nothing to look at - as the ruins are just the ruins... But it’s different when you are in those places, and it is perceived in another way. There you feel that it was someone else's home...
Mykonos  was another island that we wanted to visit during a cruise. There was no sense staying there for a week, as the island is tiny and there are only few interesting sights to see. Mykonos is famous mainly for Ibiza – all night booze ups and discos . . . and the  pelican Petros...
