A winter walk in Staro Stefanovo

Our main goal in this frosty winter day was the village of Arbanassi, but since we had long heard about Staro Stefanov’s charm, we decided it would be convenient to visit it also, because it was on the way. It was sunny, but extremely cold, the village was so white, because of the snow, and so silent. Despite the fact it was noon, we did not see anyone on the streets.

Bansko and around: 15 tested ideas for active tourism out of the season in the winter capital of the Balkans

My first visit in the town of Bansko happened almost 20 years ago. At that time the town was very small, and many of its current outskirts were pastures and meadows. Then I remembered two things: the enormous silhouette of Pirin Mountains as a beautiful background, throwing its shadow, and the imposing church of the Holy Trinity.

Warsaw: 15+ amazing things to see and do

Years ago, as a child, I spent 3 weeks in Poland at a school camp located mainly in the cities of Szczecin and Krakow. At that time, on the road we managed to afford a nice two hours walk in the Warsaw center. Still, I vaguely remembered the square in front of the Royal Castle and I really wanted to remind it and to explore a bigger part of the Polish capital.

My new visit to Warsaw have happened quite recently ๐Ÿ™‚ . We visited the city a month ago on our way to Tallinn. We spent two days in Warsaw, quite enough to explore the city and the most interesting tourist sights in Warsaw. This article is dedicated to them.

Estonia: two awesome day trips from Tallinn

After I presented the main Tallinn sites , let me introduce you two exciting routes for day trips in Estonia, outside Tallinn. Those routes are similar in a sense they both include an ancient castle and a waterfall … I adore waterfalls and each time I go anywhere I look for a waterfall ๐Ÿ™‚ to visit, if any. The first route is east of Tallinn and includes the Rackere Castle and the Jagala waterfall. The second one is in the opposite direction – west of the Estonian capital – and includes the Keila Falls, the Medieval Monastery of Padise and the Haapsalu Castle.

In May, we had the wonderful opportunity to visit Estonia, to get closer to one of the northern peoples – the Estonians – and to get to know its culture through the places we visited there.
