A magical secret castle

 

Luxembourg, even small as it is, doesn’t lack tourist spots to charm its inhabitants or tourists. As time goes by,  I keep on discovering nice spots, each with its unique specificity and beauty.
Such an example is the charming castle of the  Larochette town, located in the centre of the small duchy, surrounded by the beautiful landscape of the Müllerthal region.
Being of about nine centuries old, the castle still offers many built spaces to see, great views from every corner and a nice garden welcoming the visitors at the entrance. It’s worth seeing all the parts of the castle area such as the wine cave, towers, dining hall, balcony with former bathroom and all the others, thinking of how they have been used along these centuries.
You can find more details on the following website:  http://www.larochette.lu/chateau_en.html      
                                           Have a joyful winter and safe & beautiful trips !!
Desi mic, Luxemburg nu duce lipsa de locuri fermecatoare care ii incanta atat pe turisti cat si pe locuitori. Pas cu pas, descopar tot felul de locuri frumoase, fiecare cu unicitatea sa, unele aducandu-mi aminte de calatoriile mele in Romania si Bulgaria.
Un loc pe care il recomand celor care ajung prin aceasta zona este castelul din oraselul Larochette, ce se afla in centrul micului ducat, localitate inconjurata de frumoasele peisaje din regiunea Müllerthal, denumita Mica Elvetie a Luxemburgului.
Vechi de aproximativ noua secole, castelul ofera multe spatii de vazut, desi in ruine, o panorama frumoasa din orice colt si o minunata gradina care ii intampina pe vizitatori inca de la intrare. Merita sa vedeti toate partile complexului architectural cum ar fi pivnita de vinuri, turnurile, sala de ospete, balconul cu vechea baie si toate celelalte, imaginandu-va cum au fost folosite si locuite in toate aceste secole.  
Puteti gasi mai multe detalii in limba engleza, pe site-ul:         http://www.larochette.lu/chateau_en.html   
                                                    Sa aveti o iarna vesela si calatorii sigure & frumoase !!

Prague, a romantic escape anytime

I have had the chance to see Prague for the first time this spring. Although it was full of people I managed to enjoy that romantic spirit of the city that I was looking for.

The weather was not the best but after two days the sun came out so the photos were much better. I managed to see a lot of famous, old spots and the castle area. I liked the old centre which is very picturesque and they deserve our appreciation for being able to keep and maintain unchanged all those small streets made of cubic stone and some really amazing buildings that have been beautifully renovated. I have also seen the Botanical Gardens of the university, the Music museum and the famous beer-house ‘U Fleku’, hosting also the beer museum.

All in all, I liked it and, being also an eastern country, I felt like at home. To conclude, it is a great destination, especially for couples, and I recommend it to everyone, especially during April-September. The photos represent the Prague Castle and the Botanical Gardens.
