Maldives

Male is the capital of the Maldives islands, but also it is a commercial and administrative center. This is the most popular and vivid island from the Maldives archipelago. Male is the only location that in a way or another might be called town. In the capital you can find everything that a regular oriental city has: mosques, market, a lot of souvenir shops, little café’s with exotic cuisine. Here no one will ever be able to find some sky scratches like in Malaysia (Kuala-Lumpur), or any other types of high buildings, but there are a lot of bikes, significantly more than automobiles.

Italy

Italy is one of the most romantic and most visited countries in the world. Every corner of this country- is completely different and unique. Italy is a country that serves as a muse for painters and artists, its air has inherited the atmosphere of art and freedom. Italy is a museum country, it keeps the traditions left of the powerful Roman Empire. While you are staying in this country you get an impression that time has stopped in some weird way. That allows you to forget about the modern civilization.  While looking at the half ruined, washed with blood of thousands of gladiators, but still great Coliseum, and while looking at the posh Vatican buildings, while travelling on Venice channels or while looking at some other places of interest in Italy, you don’t feel the need to get back to the real world with its boring buildings with crazy lifestyle.

France

France – is the country that gave birth to so many beautiful works of art, to fashion and to champagne, not to mention cognac and of course it would have been a great sin not to mention perfumes. France is the birthplace of great historical personalities, such as Napoleon and Edith Piaf, three musketeers, and the troubadours (who were the poets that were singing ode’s to love and romantics). Also it is known all over the world, that French cuisine is considered as the best and most aristocratic in the world. The first balloon that flew in the sky with people was invented in France, but not a lot of people know about that. The first movie was also invented in France, by Lumiere brothers. And the first Gothic Cathedrals were invented in France as well.

Brazil

There are a lot of places of interest in Brazil, as natural as architectural. Rio-de-Janeiro (means “January river”) it is the ex capital and the most visited place in Brazil.  Noisy, cosmopolitan and ever glorious Rio is amazing with its mixture of ultramodern architecture and poverty “favel”, luxurious beaches, and resorts with an amazing temperament of local people and phlegmatic mood of police officers, with a variety of plants and lots of exotic  flowers  everywhere around.

The so called visit card of this city is the statue of Jesus Christ (the difference between two opened hands is about thirty meters) on the Corcovado Mountain, (which is a part of Tijuki national park, who’s area is a little bit bigger than three thousands of hectares), who’s hands are sort of guarding the whole city. Near the entra
