Since we are living in times of mass disinformation, I'd like to comment on some important events, like, for instance, the much-talked-about migrant crisis in the EU. 2
The Bruchsal castle is located in a city with the same name in the south of Germany. It was a residence of prince-bishops of Speyer.
Bonn Minster is a Roman catholic church in Bonn.
It is the oldest castle that I've seen. I have visited it three times with my friends and family. Every time it fascinates me. Being there is like diving into history of the Medieval times, which were so romantic and so cruel at the same time.
Baden-Baden is the most famous spa town in Germany. It is in the southwestern part of the country, not far from Strasbourg, France. The city has had its present name since 1931. It combines two words meaning "bathe", repeated in order to distinguish from the city Baden in Austria and another Baden in Switzerland.
This nice little country is situated between Germany, Belgium and France, which all contribute to its unique culture.
Munich is the third largest city in Germany. Its name is actually derived from the Old German and means “by the monks”. It was first mentioned in the 12th century.
Till 1990 this city was the capital of the Federal Republic, now it is one of the most important cultural and political cities. We visited this city just for a half of the day while we were on a small tour that also included Cologne and Düsseldorf, which I describe in my later posts.
Colmar is one of those rare cities that looks German and French at the same time.
Cossacks are a group of Slavic-speaking people who appeared in 14-15th century in Russia and Ukraine and are recognized as an ethnicity nowadays.
