Mechelen

‘Mechelaars’ talk about their city with pride. Sometimes with a touch of humour, but always with underlying warmth. Visitors are struck by the genial atmosphere as they stroll past monuments redolent with age and pause in colourful courtyards and historic churches. The Mechelaar is proud of Gouden Carolus, the award-winning beer brewed here for centuries. He is proud of Margaret, Charles V’s aunt, who put sixteenth-century Mechelen on the world map. And he has a soft spot for traditional craftsmanship and authentic local products. Come to Mechelen and experience its urban charms for yourself!

Turin Ski Region

“El diau, el diau!” “The devil! The devil!” It was in 1897 when mountain people from Sauze d’Oulx witnessed a red-faced man with a long white beard descending from the slopes, with long wooden skis attached to his feet. He was a Swiss engineer, Adolf Kind, and the wooden skis were the first seen in Italy. Today there are more than a hundred ski-lifts and 1,500 km of slopes for all levels – as well as alpine skiing, sledges and huskies, telemark skiing and the snowboarding.

Dark Mofo

Dark Mofo has a curious pull, with people coming even when they’re not sure how the art, music and food will be delivered. That’s because Dark Mofo keeps its cards close and it fails to disappoint time and again.

Pilsen

Mention of Pilsen most often evokes beer and the famous legend that gave name to all its types more than 170 years ago. However, the city has more to offer, as the historical city centre features plenty of gems reminding of its rich history: the Gothic St Bartholomew‘s Cathedral with the highest church tower in the Czech Republic, Renaissance City Hall, the labyrinth of corridors of the Pilsen Historical Underground, Franciscan Monastery, and the unique Great Synagogue, which is the fourth largest synagogue in the whole wide world.
