Zbarazh Castle Ukraine On the way from the Pochaev Lavra, we stopped at the Zbarazh castle. After all, it was here that the dramatic events of the confrontation between Cossack and Polish troops took place, described by Henryk Sienkiewicz in the novel “Fire and Sword”, which were filmed by the world famous director Jerzy Hoffman.
Hong Kong | Causeway Bay for three hours Hong Kong What in a couple of centuries can a place once called the Yellow Mud River (Won Nai Chun) turn into? To Hong Kong's Causeway Bay area. There is a proposal to change hotel slippers to sneakers and go for a walk along this edge, located on one of the historical axes of the metropolis.
Tour of the USA. Summer in Alaska. Kenai and Seward United States of America Alaska is a very large state. Not as big, of course, as it is painted on the usual distorted maps, where Greenland is the size of Africa.

Bus fleet number 7 Ukraine Somewhere in the outskirts of the Kiev left bank, a unique bus fleet No. 7 was lost — the largest motor transport enterprise on the left bank. 40 years ago, our ancestors tried to implement in it the most advanced solutions that were then available in the former Union. Now he is on the verge of extinction. The highlight of the park is an unusual covered parking lot resembling a circus building where hundreds of buses once slept. Now the building is in disrepair and will soon be dismantled.
Национальный парк Олимпик United States of America The Olympic Peninsula is located on the Pacific coast of Washington and its hometown of Kurt Cobain. They claim that they do not need to be reserved at all for three months. This is still a little bit about the beauty of the Pacific Northwest (although for us it is, after all, the southwest).
Venice: City in a Swamp Italy Venice has never been on my wish list of places to visit. A terribly public place, as a rule, should have wild price tags, crowds of tourists and the absence of even a hint of authenticity. But everything changes when they come - New Year's holidays. And here, oddly enough, it turned out that starting a new 2019 year in Venice is a very good deal.
