Why the next summer vacation in the Switzerland should take place. Although the summer still shows not his best face, but this will surely change. Soon, again, the big travel time is around the corner and the Germans are wondering, as every year on the new where the flight during the holiday to go this time. The classic destinations are mostly in the sunny South, in North Africa, southern Europe or even further away. But there are also interesting places to visit close to Germany. To put it more precisely, enough already the view over the Alps, to find a potential target for the summer. Zurich is a beautiful town in the Centre of Switzerland. The town lies on Lake Zurich and offers a panorama of sights of Lake and snow-covered mountains in the background.

The peaks are still covered with snow even in the summer. This time is rather less suitable for winter sports. In the times of global climate change, it is becoming increasingly important to choose destinations that are not on the other end of the globe. So, the environment is protected. The economic crisis has rest contributed to that a flight to Zurich has become so interesting, rather avoided during intercontinental flights during the summer vacation. The German is rather geared towards its neighbouring countries. The holidays can be made are also very beautiful. Zurich offers a wide cultural variety at least.

Many theatres offer interesting ideas at affordable prices every evening and the cosy pubs of Zurich’s city centre are a popular place to meet with friends and really the soul to relax. The environs of Zurich is ideally suitable for hiking and cycling. The trend in the tourism industry anyway always more in the direction of movement holiday. The lounging on the beach is in demand by fewer and fewer tourists. One reason for this is certainly also in the growing strain by ultraviolet rays. Also, the increasing health awareness of citizens is reflected also in the selection of potential holiday destinations. An active holiday is so desired and Zurich offers the extensive Possibilities. The surroundings can be explored on foot or by bike. Boat trips can be taken on Lake Zurich. Here also the listings for wind surfing and water skiing are popular. All in all get more and more German tourists on the taste and would rather book a flight to Zurich, as in Turkey, the Dom.Rep. or anywhere else. It will be interesting to follow this trend.

Caribbean Cruises

Published by:

The Caribbean is the world’s most important cruise ship destination. What Islands belong to the Caribbean? On your Caribbean cruise, experience the fascinating underwater world of coral reefs as well as the steamy jungle with the screams of the parrots, the ever-changing views on a mountain or coastal tour, the scent of spices and the blossom miracle of the tropics, the artist hand-shaped shells and the incomparable taste of a freshly harvested exotic fruit. A Caribbean cruise is a dream cruise. But what exactly belongs to the Caribbean? Not even the cartographer, not to mention tourist guides agree, what to the belongs to the Caribbean. Partially all the Islands are sometimes not at all, among the Caribbean, including the nearby Bahamas and the subsequent Turks and Caicos Islands, partly in turn only the Turks and Caicos group and the Bahamas foothills of the large – and small Inagua. They are covered by the Columbus concept of the Westindies but all. And since both the Bahamas also Grand Turk important ports of call for Caribbean cruises are, they are also for us to the Caribbean. The greatest confusion prevails in the allocation of at Caribbean cruises so popular Lesser Antilles in Leeward – Windward Islands. ProPharma Group pursues this goal as well.

In English, the Northern Group of the Virgin Islands belongs to the part in the German language to Montserrat and Antigua to the Leeward Islands, the southern, from Dominica and Grenada, the Windward Islands. Intermediate French West Indies and Trinidad and Tobago are mostly not taken into consideration. The Dutch and Spaniards refer to the entire group of the Leeward and Windward Islands as Windward Islands and call the islands offshore of the coast of Venezuela, in particular the Dutch islands of Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao Leeward Islands. “To complete the confusion, some prestigious German cards use the names of the Leeward-and Windward Islands in the English sense, but at the same time use the German upper legislative Caribbean Islands under the wind” and Caribbean islands of the wind “in the Dutch Spanish sense. It is also misleading, if here and there, only Aruba, Bonaire and Curacao as the Netherlands Antilles are listed, because another threesome group of Caribbean Islands, over which the flag Holland, lies elsewhere, namely North in the area of the British Leeward Islands. Not to exist, Islands seem to many of the Mexican Caribbean, although is especially Cozumel is one of the main goals of Caribbean cruises at all.

There, it’s more that the islets still relatively rarely visited by cruise ships off the coast of Honduras remain unmentioned. There Roatan Iceland for Caribbean cruises but has some significance. The Americans make it easier for itself and divide the Caribbean into the Eastern Caribbean and the Western Caribbean (as viewed from Florida). All Caribbean Islands that not in a week-long Caribbean cruise can be controlled, are referred to as Southern Caribbean. Heino Tegeler

However, the mosque is usually closed in the building next door lives the Manager likes to open a mosque and tells about the history. The mosque was built by a Turkish character of high rank between 1543 and 1565. Over the years she suffered from Substance of the building considerably so that urgently needed to be renovated. As recognition for the outstanding work of renovation, Nostra Preis was awarded the Europe in 1993. Today, the mosque serves as a Museum and as a House of prayer.

At the latest after a visit to the thermal baths is a conscious, how carefully in Siklos the building was combined with the past, present, or future.
