Trentino-Alto Adige

I’ve shared photos and places from Trentino, mainly because I really love Trentino but I have never  mentioned before that I lived in Trentino for a year. Here I discovered that I’m a naturelover: I love the lakes, the mountains, the long walks and I got attached to the idea of having a dog. I want a dog now

Innsbruck

Innsbruck is the capital city of the Austrian state Tyrol. The city has been shaped by the past but still continues to evolve. Today, the impressive mountain setting and the magnificent, historic buildings meet the attractive modern landmarks.
In the past I've shared Christmas Markets in Innsbruck and Swarovski Kristalwelten but I never wrote about this wonderful city which architecture I love so much.

Marostica’s Human Chess Game

Marostica is a medieval town, located in province of Vicenza, northern Italy, (90 km from Venice). Mostly famous for its spectacular event and folkloristic tradition The Human Game Chess which takes place in the town’s square in the second weekend of September. It’s a tradition started in 1923 inspired by an event from 1454. For this historic event, Marostica is also nicknamed ‘ La Città degli Scacchi ‘ - ‘The City of Chess ’.

Garda Lake

Garda Lake is definitely one of the most popular lakes of Italy. Surrounded by three distinct regions – Lombardy, Trentino Alto-Adige and Veneto, Garda Lake’s cultural diversity attracts a cosmopolitan crowd. It covers an area of 370 km², a length of 52 km and a depth of up to 350 m. I enjoyed Garda’s Alpine climate because it’s beautifully cupped between high mountains (some of them reach altitudes of more than 2,000 m) and that along with the majestic landscapes are the reason why this part of lake Garda is so popular with hikers, climbers and mountain bikers alike. Moreover, it is also the perfect venue for windsurfers and sailors. Ideal wind strengths and conditions render the northern part of Lake Garda a true paradise for them!

Postojna Cave

Postojna Cave is the largest Karst cave and the only one with a double track railway. It’s a fantastic network of 20 km of tunnels, beautiful passages, galleries and chambers with spectacular drop stones, pillars, limestone curtains and other unforgettable forms - one of the most visited natural landmarks in Slovenia.

Predjama Castle

The Castle is located 9 km from Postojna and 60 km from Ljubljana, the capital of Slovenija.
Predjama Castle literally owes it‘s name (predjama-in front of the cave).

Bolzano's Pyramids

This is the second post about these wonderful earth pyramids..In my first post I was telling that I once saw these pyramids in a magazine and fell inlove. But the first earth pyramids I saw, werern't these...and since I was whining all day about the pyramids I saw in the magazine that were so much bigger and many more of them, the next day we've decided to search these ones.And here they are. Isn't this place amazing? Unfortunately I could see these ones only from far away but the other ones from near. So it was a win-win that I saw the both places.
... Isn't this a spectacular view ?
