Fun Things to do In St.Petersburg During the Summer: One Day Itinerary For Real Slacker

St. Petersburg isn’t always freezing like lots of people might imagine whenever they hear the word “Russia” mentioned. They do have sunny warm days that lure everyone into spending more time outdoors instead of hiding under their cozy blankets. I have visited this town more than 4 times, all of them on gloomy windy chilly March, September, October, or December days. So, the decision I made after that was just, "Okay, that will be my last. I won’t go to St. Petersburg anymore and I really don’t understand why people keep telling me that it is beautiful.” But, it seems I always forget the things I said…

Travel to Stockholm from Turku by Ferry

To be honest, setting off on a journey hasn’t been an easy thing for me to do in recent years. When I was broke and jobless, I used to love flying. Even passing by an airport was able to get me as excited as a kid in a toy shop. Planes were able to conjure up ideas that something new is waiting to be explored, and a new world is ready to be discovered. But, nothing is perfect in this world. Now that I am not broke anymore and can afford a journey every 3 months (I should brag about that, huh), I've started to hate flying.…

Having Fun in Turku’s Castle and Turku Cathedral

Turku Castle Besides being one of my favorite cities, Turku is also home to my favorite place to visit and it is considered one of the biggest and most visited places in the country. Don’t get me wrong. It's not a bar, discotheque, or anything like that. It's a CASTLE. Yep. The castle, which was first founded around the 12th century, has become one of the most visited museums in Finland. The heyday of this museum/castled dates back to the 11th or 12th centuries, where Turku and Finland was still one of the provinces of the Swedish Kingdom. Initially it was established to serve as a bastion…

Turku, In Winter Or In Summer?

I really love this city. If somebody were to ask me where I would like to live when I have millions of sacks full of gold to buy a house abroad besides my current home in Moscow, I would blatantly say ‘Turku’! Turku (in Suomi) a.k.a Åbo (in Swedish) is the oldest city in the country. Before retaining its own name ‘Turku’, it was originally called Suomi (Finland) which later became the name for the whole country itself. The name Åbo was given by the Swedish as this area was part of their kingdom. What does Turku offer? As I mentioned before, Turku is the oldest town…

What You Should Do in Vienna Other Than Museums?

Watching people and witnessing how the locals live is one of my favorite things to do in a new city. That might be a reason why I am keen on spending time sitting in the subway in Moscow or somewhere similar and watching how people use their time and how they communicate with each other. Unfortunately, hanging out in the subway is more difficult to do in Vienna. Not only because I am unfamiliar with it, but also because I hardly ever find a place to sit down at Stadtbahn (a subway station in Vienna). Some stations have enough seating, but in others, that might be a…
