    Itinerary of Krk: what to see in this pretty Croatian Island.

    Krk Island and its cities Me and my girlfriend decided to pass this Easter with some friends in Krk, a beautiful Croatian Island. It’s not so far from Italy. In fact,  driving along the coast and passing by a mile long bridge, we reached the island of Krk. It’s located in the northern Adriatic Sea and it’s famous because of its mild climate, its geographical position, its natural and cultural beauty. The beaches here are already wild and untouched (well, most of them). Therefore I hope you can visit it as soon as possible, at least before this could change. Not all of you know that this is the largest…

    Malta: the island full of life, history and cultures in the Mediterranean Sea.

    Malta Let’s start with a bit of geography of Malta. Malta is a Southern European Island Country consisting of an archipelago in the Mediterranean Sea. It’s very close to Italy (Sicily) and Africa (Tunisia). Because of that, the climate is very mild and sunny. It has 300 days of sun per year. Therefore you can visit it without thinking about the season. The archipelago of Malta consists of three major islands: Malta (of course), Gozo and Comino. Unfortunately I didn’t have so much time to visit all but only Malta Island. Malta has two official languages which are Maltese and English. However, the Italian language is also spoken from more…

    Frankfurt: portrait of the smallest metropolis in the world.

    The Old Frankfurt city center Frankfurt is the most international city in Germany and the largest financial centre on the continent. Because it has been a trading centre for centuries, the atmosphere here is hospitable. In fact, different cultures co-lives so peacefully.

Frankfurt can be visited for tourism or for business reason: in any case, you should take your time to discover a little of this hidden gem. Me myself didn’t know how beautiful city is and that it is also…

    Krakow: one of the most fascinating medieval cities in Europe

    The top things to see in Krakow Old Town As I have already said, Krakow is one of the most fascinating medieval cities in Europe and the fact that escaped World War II destruction surprised me a lot.

    A guide for a weekend in Estonia and its capital Tallinn.

    Why Estonia When we had the possibility of visiting Estonia, we were fascinated by the number of things to see and do there. A big thanks has to go to Estonian Tourist Board for this chance.

Most of all, Estonia’s capital Tallinn is the best preserved medieval city in Northern Europe. In addition, the territory consists of a mainland and more…
