As you know, only mountains that were not better can be better than mountains. From the school lessons of geography, I knew that the Urals were, in fact, mountains too, although for some reason no one was serious about them. And on the map, Ural is temptingly located not far from Moscow, considering that I have already seen the Caucasus a bit. In this post, this was the main reason why this trip was started, and an attempt to convince skeptics that the Urals are completely worthy of the attention of travelers. Under the cut, there is a high-mountain lake and the Zyuratkul range, the Taganai National Park, and also the lakes Turgoyak and Bannoye (Yakty-Kul), which are popular with local tourists.
To the north of Angkor Thom in the shade of the jungle hiding from the busy tourist flows massive temple Preah Khan, built at the end of the XII century by King Jayavarman VII in order to honor the memory of his father.

Since ancient times, this blessing of nature skillfully use shepherds.
Even the bottom of the entrance to the city of Todi, I began to shake, agitate and fever, like a dog before the hunt. I realized that I finally come true beauty!

I wanted to feel this city, and this is a woman who does not understand it really, until you spend with her evening, night and morning ...
Perugia, the capital of Umbria, in spite of its architectural simplicity, I liked it. Ugly girl, priodevshis and make up, so someone will like. And from Perugia to attract tourists, having at hand such serious competitors as Todi and Orvietto (about them in the next post), the city all the time coming up with some holidays and festivals.
Located 40 kilometers from Italy and not to visit her - just a crime. And one fine morning, it was decided to cross the border and still admire her beauty, namely the nearby castle of Miramare. Starting from the Slovenian Piran, after 40 minutes we were already in Trieste. Driving along the industrial areas of the city, cherished the thought: "Yes, and look here there is nothing!".
