How to eat snails, or why Transcarpathians need French delicacies

The opening of the first snail farm in Transcarpathia in Nizhny Selishte made a fuss – the ubiquitous journalists, curious tourists, and those who were “annoyed” reached out for it: why does a person seriously cultivate what can be gathered enough in the vineyards after rain. In a word, the farm has become both a “discovery” and a “highlight”, and already an “integral part” of the region, because you don’t feed the Transcarpathians with bread, and don’t take away the opportunity to be “not like everyone else”.

Farmer Mikhail Demyan became interested in French delicacy four years ago. Friends brought from abroad, gave a try and hinted at opening a case. At first hesitated, because the production of snails in Ukraine is not yet widespread. Therefore, Mikhail had to acquire all the knowledge regarding their care and maintenance abroad, in European countries. He visited the farms of Poland, Romania, Moldova and Cyprus and took a chance – he started a business in Transcarpathia. Continue reading

Museum night in Vienna

Vienna is a city where classical music seems to be frozen in stone. Mozart and Beethoven, Schubert and Strauss, Brahms and Haydn lived and worked here. Whatever music is played in your headphones while walking through the local streets, Vienna will set you up for the corresponding aristocratic mood with its elegant atmosphere. And then, as in the menu of a gourmet restaurant, you yourself will choose which Vienna you want to meet.

Despite the fact that the city is large enough, it’s more interesting to explore it on foot.

Stephansplatz – an electronic scoreboard and an unobtrusive female voice in the car suggests that it is time to go out. All Vienna metro stations are minimalist in design and practical in essence. As we climbed up the escalator and stairs, the man in the wheelchair was already ahead of us, using the elevator. There are no turnstiles in the subway (U-Bahn local), and supervisors are extremely rare. In the end, the Austrians themselves do not fit in the head, how can you not pay for the fare.

Unknown Iran: how a closed country becomes a tourist mecca

Either sanctions and international reputation, or an unjustified association with the ever-belligerent Iraq, did not allow this authentic state to take its rightful place in the pages of tourist guides. And despite some difficulties, which will be discussed later, Iran left an indelible impression and confidently falls into the top 5 countries that are required to visit.

All on the shelves laid out by an experienced traveler Denis Mamontov.

ROAD

For those who have not been to Baku, transit through this city on the way to Tehran will be a pleasant route. We had just enough daylight to take a walk along the local popular promenade, admire the skyscrapers that had long forgotten about the scoop of Azerbaijan, walk through the old city, take pictures at the site of the famous Damn it.

The restoration of the Vyshnevets Palace is a national project

And although a number of external and internal restoration work at the facility was carried out even earlier – at the expense of the National Reserve “Castles of Ternopil Region” and local budgets, large restoration initiatives were delayed due to lack of funds. During 2005-2010 On paper, the Comprehensive State Program for the Conservation and Use of the Palace and Park Complex in the Vishnevets Village, which was not funded at all, was in effect. And only after 2015, when the reserve became one of the winners of the competition and received a grant from the US Embassy to restore the Mirror Hall of the palace, did large-scale work begin. The main ones are performed by master restorers from Kamenetz-Podolsk Restoration OJSC, a contractor that won the tender for the restoration of the Mirror Hall and the restoration of the southern facade of the palace.

Where good rest in the winter in Bukovina?

Although Chernivtsi region is one of the smallest among Ukrainian regions, it boldly claims to be one of the leading places in the list of the most interesting for winter vacations. After all, most of it is occupied by the Carpathians, and the snow-capped mountains are just a fairy tale.
