The monument city, the contrasting city of Riga, the capital of the Baltic state of Latvia, is comfortably located on the shores of the Baltic Sea. Riga is a beautiful ancient city where you can have a great rest, get enough impressions, taste traditional dishes in cozy national restaurants and have a good time. The mere fact that the Old Town of Riga with its pearl – the historic Town Hall Square – is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, already suggests that every self-respecting traveler should definitely visit here.
Riga is a great weekend destination. In a couple of days you can explore the main local sights, and at the same time you will not be bored! It is best to start your journey through this beautiful city, of course, from the Old Town and Town Hall Square. The 26-meter Powder Tower, which performed protective functions in the 13th century and is now adorning the city, is noteworthy here.

Poisoning tourists in Egypt happens very often. This problem is much larger than it seems. Firstly, most vacationers are treated independently, which makes it impossible to collect at least some statistics. Secondly, alcohol is often mistakenly considered the cause of stomach upsets.

it is an amazing, incomparable to any other, state, with the informal name “country of Oz”. In a territory comparable to the area of Europe, only 18 million people live. About 80% of them inhabit eight large cities located on the coast. Wildlife in Australia can be adjacent to megacities, and four-meter crocodiles can swim in the bays, on the banks of which are large cities. Australia has the highest concentration of national parks per capita – there are more than 540 of them, setting up a tent in one of them, you can not see a soul for years.
The continent impresses tourists with its natural, geographical and climatic diversity.

Along the east coast stretches the Great Dividing Range, which separates deserts from flowering valleys on the coast. Tropical forests grow here, which, in a riot of life, can argue with the Amazon River. Continue reading
