    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.

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 capital of Andalusia is the symbol of classic Spain. 

    Seville is the most Spanish city out of all Spanish cities. Here lie the remains of Cristopher Columbus, it was this amazing place where all the stolen Incan gold was unloaded, here Murillo painted the too joyful faces of saints, and here also lived the imagination of writers like Don Juan. Corridors have a long tradition in the Andalusian capital and this is the only place in Spain where  every Spanish person celebrates Fiesta with lot of color and vibrancy.

    The big show takes place in Semana Santa when 57 catholic priests each one of them wear gigantic saint objects, with holy scenes from the church they belong to the cathedral and back.  The marching is practiced barefooted( with chains at feet and wearing crosses)  with drummers, and the people are also disguised as Inquisitors.
