    The Island state Singapore is a classic example of a multicultural life

    First encountering Singapore is one of a kind. The high and business skyscrapers at both sides of the river are all identical that can be seen in most big metropolises, but neither of them has the hygiene and cleanliness like Singapore.

    The people from Beijing were forced to keep distance from the Imperial Palace and from the “center of the world”.

    An enormous task was given even in Chinese standards: 100.000 workers, craftsman like painters, carpenters, sculptors, bronze and golden smiths were all brought to construct a new residence for the emperor Yung-lo of the Ming dynasty on the flat grounds of Beijing. The work started in 1407 and it was finished in 1420, resulting in an exemplary city filled with palaces, pavilions, receipt halls and interior yards all covered with water ditches.

    Ponte Vecchio, Uffizi and the Dome – the whole Florence is a superb museum

    Those who view the city from the enormous lantern of the Dome are amazed by the charm of Florence. The tile of the roof seems to be made of velvet. Its roof is made of golden shade and the churches, squares and bridges appear as jewels of a superb necklace.

    The Romans named the settlement on the river banks of Arno Florentia ( the flourishing). Indeed, its name suited well: Florence flourished,  becoming wealthy and powerful, a center of an extremely able republic. In the 14th Century, many poor and disobedient wool spinning mill professionals participated at the very first industrial revolution from history, later on, Michelangelo sculpted the statue of David as a symbol of the republics prudence.

    The Medieval Ragusa holds today the name Dubrovnik.

    The motto of Dubrovnik is ” liberty is not for sale not even for all the earths money” , but the locals also approves the words of the modern cynical Bernard Shaw ” The city is the paradise of earth”.

    Like a flower, the “pearl of the Adriatic” with its Italian architecture, lies at the edge of the sea, protected by its strong walls. During the Yugoslav wars, the Serbs bombarded Dubrovnik, and people from all around the world highly protested against the destruction of unique monuments. Nowadays the provoking destruction of the war were removed in full thanks to its workers great job and international funding, eventually coming back to its normal state.

    The sacred mountain of Athena was once a cult center in ancient times.

    The chaotic and intense traffic in the center of city seemingly do not bother its locals. The motorcycles and horns do not have any effect for the numerous clients of cafes. Even agitated entrepreneurs who strains through the numerous crowd seemingly are not bothered. The Athenians continue to smile with a humble and good-nature personality in their continuously growing city.

    The heightened towers and arcades of proud families expands to kilometers.

    Bologna la Rossa (the red one) gives you thoughts about the tiles of roofs, the colors of the houses, but also about the fact that the city was lead by the left wing policy for 50 years. It is also nicknamed la dotta (the scholar one) by those who are impressed by its education institute, one of the oldest in the world, founded in 1088. Others, dreaming about local cold meats like “la Mortadella” for example pork roasts, truffles, and the most important, the bolognese sauce.
