Balkans, the culture in a book

My next trip is already on my agenda and I will go back to Balkans, an area where I have been different times in last years. This time the country to be visited is Macedonia, not the Greek region but the country that now is called Republic of North Macedonia. I will have some work meeting in different places, so I want to try to plan some time as a tourist and explore better also some towns where I have been without so much time to see the attractions and the curiosities.

In the years I bought some books to know better the history of Former Yugoslavia and go deep in the culture, but I continue to research to know more because those countries are reach of history with a lot of connections with Western Europe. I decide to read an old book of a travel experience published in 1941 that describe very well social, cultural and political aspects of that time.

Black Lamb and Grey Falcon: A Journey Through Yugoslavia is a travel journal with a specific analysis of the culture, the history and the politics made from an international point of view. It is not a history book, because all the elements are declined as in a diary, so easily explained from a traveller that is exploring the country. There is a meeting with people and a character that help the traveller to enter in Western Balkans world.

The brilliant observation written in the book helps me to enter more deep in the Slavic history and to learn more about the culture, step by step. Reading it I am living almost the same journey, even do it is a different period. In next days I will be again there and I will use what I have read to try to catch more benefits from my travelling in Balkans.

Stay tuned, I will post soon about my North Macedonia visits.

Luxury stay in Lviv

In the magnificent city located in the north-west part of the country, there is a hotel that offers you a luxury stay in Lviv. It was used also by Portugal national football team during the European Championship in Ukraine and Poland. The country is still not so famous among tourists around the world, but it deserves for sure a visit.

There are beautiful and historical buildings and also amazing landscapes. Ukraine is a good destination for your holidays. In the western part of the country, you can see lovely cities and towns surrounded by mountains. In the eastern part, the sea is really attractive. It is not a rich country, but the population is friendly. Luxury stays in Lviv is guaranteed by this huge local hotel.

A luxury stay: the hotel in Lviv

Located in the North-West part of the country, there is Lviv. A city with about 730.000 inhabitants. It is known as the main cultural place in Ukraine. In the downtown, I tried for you the luxury Nobilis Hotel an elegant accommodation built in 2011 in an ancient and historical palace. From the facade, there are fine decorations everywhere. But entering the hall and then in the rooms, it is possible to find antique furniture and some old and peculiar artwork. This is the setting for a luxury stay in Lviv.

Space is the main feature of the room, very big. The furniture is prestigious, maybe a bit much decorated. It is close to becoming kitsch, but anyway it is like to enter the bedroom of a king. The modern equipment allows the guest to enjoy completely the luxury stay. Inside the room, there are minibar, satellite TV, desk, and Wi-Fi connection. The classical style bathrooms with bathrobes and sleepers offer a relaxing pleasure. This place has all that you need for a luxury stay in Lviv.

Amenities

The breakfast offer is very wide. Guests can find salted and sweet dishes, including raw fish, as it is typical in the region. The menu proposes international and Ukrainian cuisine. After breakfast, I suggest of course to go out and visit the beautiful city by walk. The hotel is in the center, so the main attractions are closed to the building. You can reach all of them in a few steps. Everything is located in a short walking distance. Also, this is part of your luxury stay in Lviv.

After the tour customers can use the facilities of the Nobilis Hotel. Especially in the wellness and spa and the fitness center. You can relax and take new energy. Inside the structure, there are the lounge bar, the piano bar, and the Nobilis Restaurant. The last one is an elegant place where you can taste the best recipes of the Mediterranean cuisine. In all the hotel the staff is welcoming. Because when luxury meets the local hospitality, the guest becomes a king. You will have a luxury stay in this hotel
