Peles- castle of Romania and world heritage

Good day, if you may. The most interesting part, when you are traveling to different places are the traces these places leave in your heart. It does not matter if we speak about, cities, people , castle or marvelous seas and mountains. Traces , these are the main reasons to try to discover many and new challenges in life as a whole.

 

Today , I will be speaking about a splendid place in Sinaya mountain, Romania. It is called Peles castle ( castelul in Romanian language). I must say , that the place is chosen and bought by Karol I with great mind and sense. It is not only nature, clean and fresh air, it is kind of a special place. I always love the air in the mountain….

I have to admit, that this castle is not just beautiful and amazing. It has German, Italian styles. It has everything and makes you fall in love with it. The archery room, many pictures and lovely colors. It is more of the masterpiece of culture and architecture in Romania.

My favorite place was the library. I die for reading and having as much books as I can. In every castle this place has its own magic and charm. Many and old books, have their stories and their scenarios , which are only and simply written for you….

Dining place and bed rooms, class. Class and luxury , there words symbolize the meaning a lot. If you are a queen or a king, these words are always at presence in your daily routine and life.

And it comes to nature outside, you will see it from the pictures and you have to see it as well with your own eyes. Some things have to be felt with the heart. I will leave speechless here….

 

 

Bratislava – place to see

Good day , dear fellows. Today I will introduce you one very beautiful city. The capital of Slovakia – Bratislava. We came by bus from Prague and what I can say it that  I was totally impressed by this magnificent city.

Usually the first impression, are the ones that stay forever. We saw the many bridges over Danube, the beautiful houses of Parliament , Theater , Opera and Museums. It was some picture between Prague and Ljubljana. Very beautiful architecture and the feeling like you are in home.

The people on the streets were all open, smiley and somehow hospitable. The common heart-opened people from Eastern Europe,we have the same hospitality here in Bulgaria.  There were also many foreigners : US citizens, Russians, Italians etc.

Famous people from Slovakia are : Marek Hamsik , Dominika Cibulkova, Martin Skrtl, Martina Hingis, Daniela Hantuchova and many more . It is usually in Czech Republic and in Slovakia to meet the names Peter, Marek ,Martin and Martina. They are very beautiful and most used names. As a total most popular sports in country of Slovakia are : football, tennis and ice hockey.

The thing that made me high impression was that in Slovakia beer is perfect, like in Prague. Wonderful one with many sausages and nice things to eat. I am a great fan of beer. For those who are still hesitating, pack your baggage Slovakia is awaiting you.

Prices are affordable. One thing that made me huge impression was the great number of beggars on the streets. Also there are many churches in Bratislava. For those who do not know they are catholic -protestants. The city of Bratislava is one diamond, that each one of you must see.

 

 

 

 

Budapest – Danube, beauty , history and many more

Goo day , dear friends. The truth is that this article had waited a long time, until this sunny day make it happen and appear in front of your eyes. Sometimes I do not feel prepared enough, to write and to share what I felt, during my trips in Bulgaria and all around Europe, hopefully my adventures will soon move to another continent:)

When I speak or share smiles about cities which are near rivers of seas, the feeling is just marvelous. These water resources usually give their beauty and spirit to all parts of the surrounding. As you all, dear readers know, water has memory and this memory can be felt. It is not just a poetry or writing technique, these are explorations and science works, which are devoted to this information.

When we entered the city  6 months ago, I was astonished. Many people, lots of traffic and transports ( city of Budapest is over 2 million of people , 1/5  of the inhabitants in Hungary).  Actually the capital of Hungary is united by two parts Buda and Pest. Buda is the part with the castles in front of the Parliament and Pest is 2/3 part of the city.

Tourists love the older part of the city – Buda with all the bridges, churches , cathedrals and castles. It is like a grandeur built and put on a hill. As being part of Austrian- Hungarian empire, this city has many stories to tell you.  I usually have the dilemma how much to write in the post. From a short time, I had decided the pictures to speak by themselves. I made my decision this way, because we live in very hard times, people do not have time to smile to each other. So many of the words can just swipe and fly away, but the pictures will stand for a long time in your mind 🙂

We also took a small ship, and traveled under all bridges and taking marvelous pictures. One of the most eminent building here in Budapest is the house of Parliament, it took very long time to be constructed, but it is amazingly, extremely beautiful by day and night. There are many tourist ships, who carry many and many tourists. Danube is the biggest river in this part of Europe, it comes from Schwarzwald mountain , takes a picturesque trip east and goes to the Black Sea. Danube passes through Wien, Novi Sad, Ruse, Svishtov and many more.

Another marvelous place is the Heroes Square . I was left speechless , when I saw those beautiful monuments and statues. Usually this is a place for great concerts and celebrations of national holidays in Hungary. Near this swuare there is a big thermal bath, open 24 /7 and many historical places and streets. The squares lays in the center of Budapest.

What I can say to you  dear friends is that Budapest is in my top 5 of the most beautiful cities in Europe. You can see here picturesque places, many tourists, amazing night clubs and bars. Also an interesting feature is the Hungarian language, it has nothing in common with all other languages , I have heard. It seems very hard to be understood and learnt, but it is an interesting one. If you are hesitating to take a trip to this marvelous city, please leave all hesitations back. Budapest is ancient, beautiful and totally charming. I guarantee you, that you will fall in love straight away. Be back soon, bye for now :):):)

On every step you take, there are at least 20 things, that deserve your attention and another 50 for shooting with a camera. It is like a book with millions of pages, and each one deserves special attention, but you have to have at least one month to see all the sight-seeings…

I have been to many places and cities in Europe, but this one just took my attention, make my heart shake and I was like hypnotized. Is it just because of some kind of beauty, or just I went into a masterpiece , I do not know. There are moments in live, when you get into a total shock, but a nice shock -cultural , art and musical. You are and will be in another world……

One of the most important thing to do is drink their marvelous beer : Budweiser, Staropramen or other kind of beers, which goes perfectly with schizel, potatoes or sausages…. You can go and take a tour with carriage , there are many of the in the central part, like in Wien.

What else I can tell you – this is not just a city it is a special place for young people, tourists, lovers of photography or just people who are that much in love, that stay to live in the city till their way on this planet finishes. In Prague there is some special romance,like in Venice. If you think,that I am joking then you have mistaken the blog :):):)

Wien – music for the eyes

Good day, dear friends. It is very cold in my country, all is covered with snow, temperature is -10 degrees Celsius , but I am fine and ready to write. We have been to one of the cities in Europe , which is considered to be a cradle of culture, art and music.

Yes ,  I am speaking about Wien. It is not just a marvelous architectural masterpiece. The whole city is like a music, like a song which gently invites you to dance, and to dance till the end of you days on this planet. There are so many beautiful buildings, boulevards, castles, the Prater – the famous park of the city……

I can speak with names : Belvedere, Shonbrunn, the marveous Zoo in Shonburnn park, the old part of the city, the tiny tramps, the all taxies , which ara all : Mercedez, BMW and Porche. To speak about the calm and gentle spirit of the city. If you want me , I can remain silent.

The funny thing is that , Wien is like a big heart which welcomes everyone, no matter if they are citizens, tourist or firs and last time visitors. Same feeling , I had while I have been to Rome and Prague,maybe common emotion I had in Budapest.

dreamstime_s_73924276-1

The city , the former capital of the Holly Roman Empire, never sleeps, and she does not want you yo sleep, to feel bad or in bad mood. There are such special places, that when you come, see, feel them, you realize that they will last forever in your heart. And also they will want to come back and see, picture, speak about them.

dreamstime_s_73821610

We also have been to Shonbrunn Palace and Belvedere. What to say? When you have faced such a remarkable masterpieces of architecture , you just remain silent. The same emotion I had , when I had entered the Colloseum 7 years ago. Man can do and achieve anything. It is not only about will and money. It is about the constant search of harmony and mathematical expression of love, music and geometry…..

dreamstime_s_73821664

What about the citizens of Wien? Very, very nice people. Always open and wanting to help you. If you do not speak German, do not worry, most of them speak and understand English. The prices are high, but this is normal, this is the capital with one of the biggest tourist flow for decades.

One thing I would like to recommend you.. Go to the Zoo in Schonbrun Palace – Garden, it is just remarkable.. The most interesting thing for me was to see a panda live. Here is our Zoo in Sofia, we do not have such bear…. What are you waiting, pack and travel to one of the most eminent city in the world ……
