Fort-de-France

With its unique mix of Creole culture and European cosmopolitanism, the French overseas territory of Martinique, and in particular the capital of Fort-de-France, has just the right blend of tradition and sophistication. First-class shopping and dining combine with a fascinating artistic legacy in a quickly developing city, where modern construction projects are reinvigorating urban life. But the main draw remains the surrounding natural beauty of the island, which, with its looming volcanic peak, lush tropical rain forests and picture-perfect beaches, has captivated visitors for centuries.

Rijeka

Rijeka is in an exceptional location, at the point where the Adriatic Sea has entered the European coast furthest inland, and that is why the rich history of this city is tied to the sea. Rijeka is the third largest town in the Republic of Croatia, and is the main town of Primorsko-Goranska County. Because of its openness towards the outside world, the city is known for its hospitality. The influences of numerous cultures and nations can be seen in the town, and Rijeka has to this day remained a town of tolerance and coexistence.

Carcassonne

Located in South of France, Carcassonne is situated at the crossing of two major routes: from the Atlantic to the Mediterranean coast and from the heart of France to Spain, both used since antiquity. It is a beautiful and diversified region but the city itself has enough to fulfil your curiosity. The medieval fortified Cité is a UNESCO world heritage site. No wonder that Carcassone is home to a unique historical and cultural past. If you add the local traditional dishes, the hospitality of its inhabitants and some of the best vineyards in the south of France, your stay will be a most memorable one!

Kiev

Golden domes and shimmering spires peek out from the wooded hills rising above the wide Dnipro River. Leafy-green Kiev, with its traffic-packed boulevards, shopping malls, countless churches, brilliant music and lively nightlife, has embraced capitalism, yet held firmly to its heritage. The Caves Monastery is the spiritual heart of Ukraine, and nearby, a gigantic Brezhnev-era Motherland statue bearing sword and shield casts her all-encompassing eye over the city, the river, and its island beaches.

Seoul

Seoul is a city of contrasts in which the ancient and the modern harmoniously coexist. In one sense, it’s a hi-tech 21st-century city awash with neon lights and the sights and sounds of a 24 hour metropolis, while at the same time, a city retaining the majesty and graceful ambience of ancient dynasties that once ruled. Like the river Han on which it sits, Seoul is constantly moving as it strides boldly into the future, yet simultaneously managing to keep one foot firmly entrenched in its historical past.

Aruba

The nightlife bursts with Latin music and exotic sounds, and exciting shopping and dining experiences await at every corner. Stronger waves break against the eastern coast, deserted and swept over by wind – exploring it will lead the most adventurous visitors to breathtaking natural beauty.
