Once the capital of Poland and currently the cultural hub of the country, Kraków is the perfect destination for a weekend’s (or even a week’s) getaway. Why? Well, let’s see…
For starters, the city is beautiful; featuring, amongst others, a 13th-century castle, narrow cobblestone streets (major beauty points for any place) and a grand medieval market square (which is the largest square in Europe) in the heart of the Old Town.
Second, there’s loads to do; from sightseeing to learning more about Poland’s historic past to drinking and dancing your way through its many, many bars, pubs and clubs.
And to top it all off, your visit there won’t cost a fortune; although prices are on the rise during the past years, Krakówis still cheaper than other popular European destinations.

And what is the best season to enjoy all of Cyprus?

Croatia is one of those #blessed countries that play by Mediterranean rules, meaning that early autumn(September and maybe even beginning of October)is practically still summer;weather’s still nice, sea water’s still warm, nightlife’s still buzzing lively, but quieter than before.
If you find yourself in Croatia during its summer months, there is one thing that you will definitely want to do, and that is head to the beach.
It’s August 17th (or it was August 17th, back when I wrote the blogpost #tbt), which means that the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2017 just hit its halfway mark, but, more importantly, that a new Game of Thrones episode drops in 3 days omg omg omg (Update: Currently waiting for final season of GoT)!!! So… Are you broke yet? (probably). Are you sick of festival flyers? (probably). Do you still like people? (probably not).
I trust that you have applauded your fair share of acts so far, but if you choose to visit the festival during its last two weeks, or still have a few pounds to spare, here is a handful of must-see shows at the Fringe and Edinburgh International Festival.
After months of planning, anticipating, and planning some more, it finally happened! My visit to thecountry of wine, grilled seafood and truffles(nope, not Italy), the land of lavender, the home of a thousand islands, and the place where Winter is coming (or – Season 7 Games of Thrones spoiler alert – it has arrived), Croatia! I was there for …
