Ostrava is the third largest city in the Czech Republic (after Prague and Brno).

Visit to Baku in Azerbaijan

My visit to Baku didn’t start out well. I had been in Armenia just before, and as I was explaining on my post about Yerevan, Armenia and Azerbaijan are not in good terms at all. Actually, it’s impossible to go to Azerbaijan from Armenia (and vice versa). I had to go back to Tbilisi in […]

I don’t really have good memories of Kiev, where I spent a few days. The highlight of the trip was the day I spent in Chernobyl. It really blew me away, and just for this, I didn’t regret my trip to Kiev. Thus I was a little disheartened about my next trip, to Odessa. In […]

The Cricova winery? I didn’t know. I’m not gonna lie… I’m not a big wine lover, and it’s pretty much impossible for me to tell you if this wine good or not, if it’s a fruity one, if it’s a strong one… I have an occasional drink of wine, but truthfully speaking, wine is not […]

They’re numerous in Budapest. […]

Having a beer bath, in a beer spa, who would have thought about it?
