Matera Italy, for the explorers
Italy is much more than the pizza, pasta and fashion, and the many tourists visiting the main cities made us search deeper in the central region where we found this amazing city. Matera is located in the Basilicata region, and the thing is most famous about is it’s sassy district, which dates from prehistoric times. The area is an actual ravine with cave dwellings dug into the limestone, and the cave-houses that are so popular here were used as an actual home for the prehistoric people. Today the sassy district is a great site that can be explored by foot; as the many viewpoints are excellent places to play with your cameras, and the many churches glorify the district. There are many cave hotels where you can enjoy your stay even more, for the maximum sassy experience, and the churches, museums and the cathedral will awake your adventurous spirit.
Mostar Bosnia, for the history lovers
The small town in Bosnia and Herzegovina suffered multicultural settlements, after many decades of war, the most important historical place in the town is the bridge Mostar, and the town got its name after it. The bridge once was a small wooden bridge that was replaced with a stone one in 1520. The bridge suffered the Ottoman period, Austro-Hungarian era, World War II, where sometime between 1992 and 1995 the bridge was completely destroyed, then rebuilt in 2004. The city’s leftovers are magnificent proof of the many cultural settlements, and its great for anyone interested in the stories behind Mostar and Mostar’s bridge.
Annecy France, for the luxury seekers
This romantic little French town in a picturesque setting is located in the eastern part of the country, 60 miles away from Lyon, and it used to be the capital of the county of Geneva before it was being incorporated into the House of Savoy. The stunning lake of Annecy is a grande mirror which reflects the snowy Alps, and it gives a romantic touch to the historical old town. You can never get bored here, as there are much activities like kayaking and fishing you can enjoy, skiing in the Alps in the winter and boating in the summer. The stunning display of grand architecture is shown in the castle, palace and the churches the old part of the town offers for its tourists, and accommodation wise there are various luxury hotels and resorts, high-end shopping and fine dining, which is included in the right Annecy experience.

This stunning city is located on the island of Austvågøya in the Lofoten archipelago, Norway, and it has the greatest view of the Northern Lights, and to make sure you capture them on your camera, the city has got many local guides who will organise a small field trip just for you. When you arrive in the Lofoten Islands the closed heavy clouds will be the first thing you’ll notice here, and it would be hard to imagine that people live here. But they do, and this magical place is just like from the fairytales, where like many other Norwegian city’s the main occupations is fishing. Facing the sea of Vestfjorden to the south, and with mountains in the north, this place is great for climbers, hikers and fisherman.
