Snowy Denmark: Beautiful Winter Kingdom

Read more on "Snowy Denmark: Beautiful Winter Kingdom" »

Many tourists associate Denmark with Hans Christian Andersen’s fairytales, a bronze statue of the Little Mermaid by Edvard Eriksen, the ships in the port of Copenhagen, and improbably colorful cities.

The resorts of Denmark, like German ones, are highly popular in Europe. The reason for that is the special culture and unique atmosphere of the country. If most travelers know practically everything about Germany, Denmark remains partly unknown for the average traveler. Let’s understand where to go and what to try in this beautiful country.

Geographically located in Northern Europe, Denmark occupies more than 1000 islands located primarily in the Baltic Sea, Wadden Sea, North Sea, South Funen Archipelago, and Nakskov Fjord. It is situated between Germany, Norway, and Sweden. The country’s total surface area is 42,394 square kilometers.

Denmark has more than 5.5 million inhabitants, and 80% of them are Lutherans. However, there are a lot of atheists in the country – 20% of the population.

An interesting site is the royal palace Amaliyendborg. It is the capital masterpiece in rococo style consisting of four buildings. In the middle is a square laid out by tile and stone blocks. Not only are there hundreds of tourists, but also the royal family lives here. Unlike Buckingham Palace, guests are invited to the territory of Amalianborga. The building endured an awful fire, but has been skillfully restored.

Besides the palace complex and magnificent grounds, there are park and museum platforms on the territory. It is possible to come here Tuesday through Sunday in all seasons of the year. Operating time is from 11:00 till 16:00; entrance fee – 95 Danish kroner.

For those who like easy rest, Denmark has Lalandiya Aqua Park. It is a whole complex with numerous attractions and skating rinks. There is even a small town that has a lot of motels. Lalandiya is a famous place to visit not only for tourists, but also for numerous locals.

The aqua park is famous for its large surface. It is open year round from 10:00 till 19:00. Entrance fee is 220 Danish kroner for adults, 170 – for children.

Denmark is all about fairytales; therefore, it invites guests to “Andersen’s World.” It is a big museum devoted to works of the great children’s writer. Here you will be met by wax Hans Christian, and you will be able to see the setting in which he wrote his well-known creations.

Favorite fairy tale characters and exhibits from the writer’s life and works are presented in the museum. The walls are decorated with numerous pictures and illustrations. In this house, Andersen lives on, and a magic atmosphere still reigns. The museum is open June to May, from 10:00 till 18:00. Entrance fee is 60 Danish kroner.

Exciting Cave Nightclub in Trinidad, Cuba

Read more on "Exciting Cave Nightclub in Trinidad, Cuba" »

You may have heard of the wonderful city of Trinidad in central Cuba. It is known for its colonial history and old cobblestone streets.

Among the city’s major attractions are the Museo Romántico, Palacio Brunet mansion, Museo de Arquitectura Colonial, and Palacio de Cantero. But there is one spot that differs from anything else you can experience in this tremendous location.

We are talking about Disco Ayala, a very special party scene. Have you ever listened to DJ sets in the underground?

Maybe so, but have you ever done that in a natural cave – especially one that was once home to an infamous serial killer?!

Even if you are an experienced traveler and have visited numerous eccentric clubs and bars, this place will surprise you. The proprietors say the cave was inhabited by criminals long before the idea of making it into an entertainment venue crossed their minds.

The club was named for Carlos ‘Coco’ Ayala – a notorious villain in Cuban culture who kidnaped children, took them to the cave, and eventually murdered them.

People say that during the War of Independence he brought many minors to the den and subjected them to various acts of cruelty. According to legend, Ayala continued his atrocities until locals finally captured and decapitated him. For many years afterward, Cuban mothers would warn their children against talking to strangers by saying: “Be good or Carlos Ayala will come looking!”

Today the place is not as scary since it has been turned into a popular modern nightclub – a favorite among Trinidad residents and visitors alike.

To enter the club you walk down a dusty street leading to the cave’s entrance. After descending two flights of stairs and passing through a tunnel, you emerge into an amazing disco center. A large dance floor is set up in the middle of the cavern, and the flashing lights circling the entire area create a spectacular ambiance.

With loud Latin music and professional performers, the Disco Ayala is a place you should definitely check out while touring Cuba.
