Latvia Vacation Travel Video Guide

Travel video about destination Latvia.
Latvia is a small Baltic republic, a country with a strong national identity, situated within the centre of the Baltic States. Throughout the course of history its desire for freedom has always taken it forward. Riga is the capital of Latvia, a Hanseatic city and European capital of culture. Saint Petri Church is one of the oldest in the centre of the city and, at the same time, a main landmark. It is one of the most important sacred buildings of the Middle Ages and is closely linked with the development of the city. Close to Riga is Jurmala, today a popular health resort on the Latvian Riviera, with splendid bay-windowed villas, battlements and towers, formerly Baroque and later with a nod at Gothic. Thirty kilometres of beaches with bright erinaceous quartz and a mild climate created a holiday paradise in the nineteenth century. Amid the fertile Zemgale Plain is the magnificent, huge Baroque Jelgava Castle, the largest in Latvia. In 1737 the residence of the then secular ruler of the Duchy Of Kurland was built on the ramparts of an ancient castle of the Livonian Order. Beneath the southeast corner of the castle is the Crypt Of The Dukes, a tomb vault with thirty superbly decorated sarcophagi of tin and wood. The picturesque primordial river valley of Gauja has for centuries attracted travellers from each corner of the world. This Livonian Switzerland not only has the charm of primary nature, but also all the ambience of the Middle Ages. Today’s Latvia is now striking a healthy balance between a market economy, ancient traditions and the burdensome legacy of a turbulent past. Its journey into the European Union has been a success, thanks to courage, strength and faith!

Riga (Latvia) Vacation Travel Video Guide

Travel video about destination Riga in Latvia.
Riga is the capital of Latvia, a Hanseatic city and European capital of culture. Saint Petri Church is located in the centre of the city and has a long and varied history. It features inner cross vaults modelled on those of the dome of the Hanseatic city of Lübeck’s cathedral, plus a circular arch and sturdy, red brick walls. It is one of the most important sacred buildings of the Middle Ages and is closely linked with the development of the city. Mentzendorff House was a manorial property which German merchants had built at the end of the seventeenth century. Carefully renovated, its original splendour has been fully restored. The middle class buildings of Elisabeth and Albert Street indicate the prosperity of its past occupants. Like almost nowhere else, art nouveau has been preserved incredibly well with lavish embellishments and numerous motifs. Marien Cathedral is situated in the centre of the city and is the most important religious building in the Baltic States. Its age, dimensions and contrasting architectural styles bear witness to a long history and its famous organ, built in 1883, contains a hundred and twenty four registers and almost seven thousand wooden and metal pipes. In keeping with the age-old traditions of the Hanseatic League, the very heart of the Baltic beats within Latvia's metropolis and, with an elegant lust for life, Riga is an extraordinary treasure!

The picturesque and primordial river valley of Gauja lies within the heart of Latvia and has for centuries attracted travellers from each corner of the world.

Ventspils (Latvia) Vacation Travel Video Guide

Travel video about destination Ventspils in Latvia.
Ventspils is located on the Black Sea in the north of Latvia’s west coast and since the thirteenth century has been a city of sailors. From the fourteenth to the sixteenth centuries it was member of the German Hanse and in the middle of the seventeenth century a shipyard was built for warships and merchant ships, which led to the prosperity of the city. On the banks of the Venta River is the only castle of the Order Of The Princedom Of Kurzeme, built by the Livonian Order at the end of the thirteenth century. The harbour has been well-developed and boasts a long history, from the Wenden Tribe and the Crusaders, right up to the present day. A trip around the harbour highlights the fact that Ventspils is the most important port in Latvia and from where oil from Siberia is loaded as well as chemical products and also wood and fish. After the Northern War and a devastating plague, the city lay in ruins and the harbour, unused. However, following the extension of the harbour at the end of the nineteenth century, life returned. When, in 1904, a rail link was opened to Moscow and Rybinsk, the harbour became important once again. In this region, people have always lived by the sea and the ice-free harbour gave rise to Ventspils’ deserved prosperity.

Liguria (Italy) Vacation Travel Video Guide

Travel video about destination Liguria in Italy.
Extending south to Tuscany, Italy’s mountainous western coast on the Gulf of Genoa is called, Liguria, a picture book country with paradisiacal cliffs, remote villages, bucket loads of sunshine and a region known as, Cinque Terre, that comprises five villages. Our journey begins in Genoa, the fifth largest city in Italy. A guided tour of the harbour is a good way to gain an understanding of this city which became a powerful economic force in the sixteenth century. The Palazzo Reale was once the residence of the Savoy-Piedmont royal family, with bel-etage, gallery and hanging garden. Monterosso Al Mare is the first and largest of the five villages that comprise Cinque Terre, on the route south. It extends across two bays and two districts, separated by a rock. The modern district of Fegina has a long waterfront promenade, a well-kept sandy beach and a good range of accommodation. Vernazza is considered to be the most beautiful of the five villages mainly because of its location within a splendid bay. Corniglia has no direct access to the sea, but extends along a massive rocky plateau about a hundred metres above the sea. On the hilly outskirts is the San Pietro Church, built in 1334, with an elegant, decorated facade and a rose window of Carrara marble. Portovenere is situated on a long promontory in a remarkable location on the Ligurian coast. Just outside the famous Old Town are some splendid exclusive apartments, each with their own character. It was here that the Romans founded Veneris Portus, the ‘Port Of Venus’. The magic of Liguria is based on the contrast between a narrow Mediterranean coastal strip and steep, barren mountains. Whether you walk this scenic landscape or explore it by train or ship, Liguria is a special dream of romance and beauty.

Lithuania (Europe) Vacation Travel Video Guide

Travel video about destination Lithuania in Europe.
Lithuania is situated on the Baltic Sea and has a long history, fortified castles and splendid palaces, a country that has many religious buildings and where religious faith has become an art form. Vilnius, the capital, is a city of Baroque mixed with Gothic, Renaissance and Classicism, a melting pot of culture. Its main landmark is Castle Hill with its red-coloured Gediminas Tower that marks the beginning of the city's history. The Boulevard begins in Cathedral Square where, adjoining the cathedral, is a fine white bell tower. The Cathedral’s interior still radiates a Gothic sense of space. The local people are particularly proud of the cathedral’s copy of the Turin Shroud. In the Middle Ages when the Grand Dukes ruled, the ancient capital of Trakei was the political centre of Lithuania’s power. The later built Water Castle is the real landmark of Lithuanian history. Grand Duke Vytautas had the castle extended and from it ruled a vast empire which, for a short time, stretched from the Baltic to the Black Sea. Around forty kilometres northwest of Vilnius lies the archaeological site of Kernave, Lithuania’s ‘Troy’. The exhibits date from the tenth century B.C. until the Early Middle Ages. During the first centuries A.C., large settlements were established in the Pajauta Valley, which were protected by the Castle Mountains. On the edge of the Zemait Highland in the north lies Şiauliai, Lithuania’s fourth largest city, much of which had to be rebuilt after the Second World War and that since the sixteenth century had been an important market and trading city. Sundial Square is the city’s main landmark with its impressive sundial that was created for the city’s seven hundred and fiftieth jubilee in 1986. Full of European history, Lithuania has become a modern day country with magnificent castles, ancient towns, nature and culture and is a destination that is bound to please!

Malta Vacation Travel Video Guide

Travel video about destination Malta.
Homer called Malta, ‘The Centre Of The Sea’. This island situated in the heart of the Mediterranean and was important to both the orient and the occident. After the Phoenicians and the Punier came the Romans followed by the Arabs and the Normans: but it was the Knights Of Malta who made the most indelible mark here.Valletta is also known as The City Of Palaces and is Malta’s main city, full of historic buildings, and in 1530 the Order of the Knights of Malta moved its main residence to this part of the island. The St. John´s Co-Cathedral was built in1577 by Gerolama Cassar as a monastic church of the Order Of The Knights Of Malta and its splendid interior was financed by the profits gained from hostilities mounted by the Order against Muslim trading ships. Mosta is situated in the middle of the island, a busy small town with a famous landmark, Mosta Cathedral, a huge sacred building whose mighty dome can be seen from almost anywhere on the island. The rugged southern coast of Malta contains small fjord-like features and numerous grottos, the most spectacular of which is the Blue Grotto. From the village of Wied-Iz-Zurrieq a steep path leads down to the sea and when the weather is suitable experienced guides take passengers on small boats through a narrow canyon into the grotto where the colour of the water is truly fascinating. One of the prettiest villages on Gozo is Gharb whose Baroque parish church dominates the main square. Here it is as though time really has stood still. With seven thousand years of history Malta is a colourful and beautiful island with tales of the sea and noble knights: a tantalising pearl set in the very heart of the Mediterranean.

Trakai (Lithuania) Vacation Travel Video Guide

Travel video about destination Trakai in Lithuania,
In the Middle Ages when the Grand Dukes ruled, the ancient capital of Trakai was the political centre of power of Lithuania. Small, colourful traditional wooden buildings line Karaimu Gatve and the descendants of the first Karaer still live there. The gabled buildings face the street and contain three small windows, one for God, one for Vytautas and one for the inhabitants themselves. In 1409, following his third baptism, the church was founded by Duke Vytautas and became a part of the protective system of the Trakaer city. Both its facades and interior decoration contain features of the later Gothic and Baroque construction. The construction of the Water Castle began with the erection of a palace and a deep ditch that contained water from the lake separated the palace from the promontory. At the same time casemates and towers were built and a wall with three towers on each corner surrounded the promontory. The main entrance to the castle was only accessible via a drawbridge and an additional portcullis provided further protection. Within the former treasury are objects that belonged to the Teutonic knights. Indeed, it was Duke Vytautas who made an alliance with the Teutonic Order and thus came to power in 1390. Magnificently crafted jugs, plates and cups of gold, highlight the wealth and power of Lithuania’s royal court. This beautifully preserved castle complex with its unique architecture of stone and wood has a national significance for Lithuania: it is a symbol of the courageous steadfastness of the Lithuanians against the Crusaders!

Lemmenjoki Vacation Travel Video Guide

Travel video about destination Lemmenjoki.
Lemmenjoki is one of the most famous rivers in Finland. It rose to fame at the beginning of the twentieth century not because of its natural beauty but due to a spectacular discovery of gold.

Covering a total area of two thousand eight hundred and fifty-five square kilometres, this nature reserve situated in the extreme north of Lapland is the largest national park in Europe.In addition to the almost endless forests, treeless fjaells, rivers and several swampy plateaus add further interest to the unusual scenery.The Lemmenjoki Nature Park was not only created to protect Lapland's animal and plant worlds: it was founded to protect the interests of the Sami people and their age old culture and traditions.Little remains today of the former gold rush that once took place in the Lemmenjoki region. Since that time the true value of this scenery has been fully recognized: pure, unadulterated wilderness!

Sverige (Europe) Vacation Travel Video Guide

Travel video about destination Sverige.
In the heart of Scandinavia, Sweden is Europe’s fifth largest country. Vast and remote in the harsh north, with idyllic lakes and spectacular islands in the south. Our journey begins in Kiruna, a hundred and twenty kilometres north of the Arctic Circle where it is winter for two hundred and ten days a year. Several centuries ago, huge mineral deposits were discovered in this region but it was only from 1899, following the completion of the railroad, that mining became profitable and thousands of workers streamed into the area. Seventeen kilometres east of Kiruna in a Sami settlement in JukkasjärvI, each year the most unique hotel in the world is totally re-built, the Ice Hotel, a unique project that began in 1989. Crystal clear blocks of ice are cut out of the frozen River Torne and then carved into various rooms and inventive works of art. Every year the giant ‘igloo’ is given a different look, only for it all to melt away in May. Protected by the island of Öland is one of the best preserved Renaissance castles in Europe, Kalmar Slott, that sits regally on its own island and is accessible via a bridge from the mainland. We travel at length on the Göta Channel, the Kattegatt, that connects the north with the Baltic Sea: from Gothenburg to Stockholm on a canal that ingeniously links Sweden’s largest lakes, and is a hundred and ninety kilometres long. Finally, located on the idyllic Lovön Island, is the royal castle of Drottningholm Slott, main residence of the Swedish royal family and the ‘Versailles Of The North’. Adventure and amazing nature as well as fortresses, castles and towns. It is not surprising that those who visit Sweden are seduced by the lure of the High North.

Tokyo (Japan) Vacation Travel Video Guide

Travel video about destination Tokyo in Japan.
Tokyo is a world in which samurai traditions meet with all of the technical wizardry of the twenty first century. Surrounded by skyscrapers, the Imperial Palace is located in the centre of the city where mighty walls and moats protect this relic of the early Edo Period. Whitewashed watchtowers and dark roofs deliver a vivid impression of the distinct sense of power of the Tokugawa Shoguns. Tokyo Tower is situated on the edge of the Roppongi district and is a replica of Paris’ Eiffel Tower. Three hundred and thirty three metres high, it shines red and white, day and night. The Meiji Shrine is Tokyo's most important Shinto shrine where Emperor Mutsuhito and Empress Shoken were laid to rest. Wedding ceremonies are held there and always attract the eyes of curious onlookers. It is a popular place of pilgrimage that conveys an overwhelming atmosphere of timelessness, silence and dignity. The Tsukiji Fish Market is the world's largest trans-shipment centre whose market halls resemble a massive hangar surrounded by a labyrinth of small stalls with freshly caught fish and well-prepared food. North of the Imperial Palace is the Koishikawa Corora Garden, one of Tokyo’s most important landscaped gardens. Construction of this traditional garden began in 1629 and was completed thirty years later. Stone bridges were built and various of Japan’s famous landscapes were created in miniature. A futuristic monorail travels across Tokyo Bay along the harbour via Odaiba, through modern stations and past new residential and commercial buildings. Tokyo has become a centre of world economy and finance, a city of contrasts that never sleeps. Once a humble fishing village, today it is one of the largest metropolises in the world!
