The Kingdom of Crystal

Every year more than a million visitors come here to a area in Kronoberg and Kalmar counties in Småland that includes the municipalities of Emmaboda, Lessebo, Nybro and Uppvidinge. Many return time after time. It is easy to understand why. To watch red-hot molten glass being transformed into delicate crystal or sturdy bowls is a spectacle that one never tires of. Here you will find well-known glassworks and brands such as Orrefors, Kosta Boda, Skruf, Mats Jonasson Målerås to name a few. In additon, you can enjoy the nature of Småland in its prime with its forests, lakes, stone walls and many cultural sights. These include Vilhelm Moberg’s emigrant district.

Red Bull in Bruges - What tourists don't see

In an amazing video, Australian athlete Dominic Di Tommaso showcases our beautiful city of Bruges from an unseen perspective. As a tourist, Bruges’ typical canal boats are the perfect way to discover the fabulous city from the inside. Well, you might want to reconsider. World-class freerunner Dominic Di Tommaso reveals this stunning piece of UNESCO World Heritage from a completely different perspective in the amazing video ‘What tourists don’t see’. On and across the roofs, towers, stepped gables and even the Belfry of Bruges, Dominic invites us on an athletic, jump- and flip-filled journey along the most beautiful spots of the inner city. Always on the move, freerunning in its purest form.

Fuerteventura

The second largest of the Canary Islands attract huge numbers of sun-worshippers and water sport practitioners in search of one thing: the most pristine beaches in the archipelago. You can't blame them. The golden sand, cool water and gentle sea breeze of Fuerteventura are head and shoulders above those of its neighbours. But the island has so much more to offer, from barren dessert scenery and fascinating volcanoes to colourful and characterful towns and pleasant harbour promenades, all of which visitors would be foolish to miss out on.

Cologne

It is said that natives of Cologne, who are living elsewhere, always feel homesick. Visitors to this beautiful city will soon understand why. Germany’s oldest metropolis, which, of course, gave its name to the Eau de Cologne, offers a mix of magnificent and romantic churches, the latest in modern architecture, busy shopping streets and world-famous museums. There is much to do and see, including a world famous carnival, so come and explore Cologne! With frequent flights and transportation options, getting here has never been easier.

Xi'an

Xi'an, once called Chang'an, the City of Long-lasting Peace, tops the list of China's six ancient cities. The world-renowned ancient Silk Road starts here. To stand on this land is to be on the very soil where merchants from empires long relegated to the annals of history once moved, and many facets of its past as a trading post still live on in various forms. The variety of folk handicrafts that greets the visitor is bewildering. Just outside the city is the steepest mountain in the world, Hua Mountain. Here is where the pre-historic Lantian man was found, proving that human existence here dates back 500,000 years. With all this heritage behind it, Xi'an stands proud even in the face of its modernization, a spectacular testament of the magnificent legacy the Chinese are so proud of.
