Naples

Naples is a major city in southern Italy, the capital of the Campania region. The city is located in close proximity to Vesuvius – the largest active volcano in Europe, which destroyed and preserved to this day the ancient cities of Pompeii, Herculaneum.

The strategic location of Naples was the cause of numerous attacks, since the founding of the city in the VIII century BC. Initially, the Greek settlement was captured by the Romans in 327 BC, and became the favorite residence of emperors and literary figures, including Virgil and Nero. In the 7th century, Naples was ruled by Byzantium, and later by Norman Sicily. The city reached its highest point of medieval prosperity under Charles of Anjou, when in 1266 he made Naples the capital of the Kingdom of Naples. Karl expanded the city and decorated it with palaces and churches. Further, the Spanish Habsburgs were followed by the Bourbons, Bonaparte and the dynasty of the rulers of Savoy, when the Campaign became part of a united Italy in 1860. Continue reading

But its construction was completed only in 1880. In 1388, a university was founded in the city. Cologne was the first city with a democratic constitution and kept aloof from any kind of upheaval. However, in 1794, French troops entered the city, and after 1815 he moved to Prussia. In 1945, the city was destroyed by 80 percent, but the inhabitants lovingly restored it literally “from the ashes.” Continue reading

Balatonboglar

Balatonboglar is a cozy town that adorns the southern shore of Lake Balaton with resort opportunities. The distance from the capital of Budapest by only 150 kilometers stimulates the natural interest of tourists with the full transport accessibility of this village.

Mentioned for the first time by ancient chroniclers in 1211, Balatonboglar made his name sound before the Turkish invasion, reaching heights in viticulture and the inevitably concomitant of this craft of winemaking. And in the resort direction, the town began to develop at the turn of the century – an idealistically romantic nineteenth and unpredictably stormy twentieth. Continue reading
