On the way from our hotel to the supermarket, we discovered an ancient ruin beautifully reflecting the setting sun. I suppose the ruins are a hidden part of the archaeological area in Paphos. We tried to find some information about this site – the date it was built, how long it had been closed and its development during the golden age. Sadly, these timeworn baths appeared forgotten by tourist guides.
Fortifications of Kotor are remarkable construction, influenced by several architectural styles, with the Venetian style predominantly. Unfortunately, severe earthquakes have damaged them in the 16th and the 17th centuries. The consequences of the most recent one from April 1979 are still visible on the Kotor Fortress.
When I prepared myself for the trip to Romania, I often stumbled upon the word “contrasts” connected to Bucharest. How often can you drink a (surprisingly expensive) beer in front of a ruin? This photo is taken right in the Old Town of Bucharest and I think you get a feeling for what I mean with “contrasts”. Just a few streets further they build a new 5-star Hotel.
