The best in Zurich

Traveling in Europe is the dream trip for many people and there are many interesting destinations for us. For today, I’d like to suggest you one important city which is Zurich, Switzerland. Do you know it is the largest city and be the cultural and commercial capital of Switzerland? Also, it was named as the city with the best quality of life in the world as well as the wealthiest city in Europe which ranked the sixth most expensive city in the world.

In addition, Zurich is the old town where is very worth especially for the historian and new generation. Also, it’s the beautiful city where the tourist can see many wonderful buildings, churches like Grossmünster and Fraumünster, museums such as Swiss National Museum, Kunsthaus Zurich (one of the largest collections in Classic Modern Art in the world), and other notable architectures.

Moreover, I think it’s the romantic city and good for a person who drool over art because you can visit the interesting places like Zurich opera house, one of the principal opera houses in Europe and many theatres in the city. Also, during the art movement, the famous artists like Max Bill, Marcel Breuer, Camille Graeser or Richard Paul Lohse had their ateliers in Zürich, which became even more important after the takeover of power by the Nazi-Regime in Germany and World War II.

After I hinted to you some attractive parts of Zurich, I think it’s the time for introducing the other places. If you are a woman, I’m sure that you will be interested in this exclusive shopping avenue, Bahnhofstrasse. Parade-Platz, Plaza in the middle of Bahnhofstrasse, it’s a center of financial activity with the world-headquarters of several Swiss banks. For my itinerary, the indispensable destination is St. Peter, the Christian church with the largest church clock face in Europe.

Roughing It In Style

You’ve seen the travel commercials with the couple in the beachside bungalow with mosquito nets… and the thought of going on vacation to stay in a tent gives you the creepy crawlies already. Not to worry, you won’t need a sleeping bag and a bottle of Off! for this exotic vacation.

When was the last time you stayed in an air-conditioned, 790 square-foot tent with wooden floors, embroidered interior canopies, private gardens, outside deck for sunbathing, king size four-poster bed, freestanding rolltop bath and separate shower? And just to make sure you don’t feel like you’re “roughing it,” your tent comes with a DVD player and minibar. It’s seems contradictory that the words “luxury” be used to describe a tent but at the Oberoi Vanyavilas, located between the Aravali and the Vindhya mountain ranges in South-Eastern Rajasthan, India, the concept is far from novel.

Nestled among 20 acres of landscaped gardens, lemon and mango trees and lakes and fountains, are 25 tents, bordering on one of the most extraordinary wildlife reserves in the world, Ranthambore National Park and Tiger Reserve, which is home to the majestic Indian tiger, as well as deer, leopard, and crocodile. Now, before you think that this is an isolated retreat, consider the fine dining options and extensive spa services available.

In the Dining Room and Inner Courtyard, Executive Chef Saurav Banerjee and Indian Master Chef Arjun Singh Yadava present an impressive spread of Western, Thai and Indian cuisine from a revolving menu. The exquisitely decorated restaurant features hand painted frescoes of flowers and animals by the celebrated miniaturist Mohan Singh Kumawat.

Spa Therapy

As with any quality resort, there is a spa, where you’ll find steam rooms, showers and private therapy suites and a long menu of spa treatments, massages, facials, manicures and pedicures. Try the stimulating Indian Spice Wrap and a delicious Orange Wrap. All the massage and aromatherapy treatments are aimed at relieving stress and promoting a deep sense of relaxation and wellbeing. And for fitness buffs who can’t miss a workout, there is an exercycle, rowing machine, steppers and a treadmill, as well as an outdoor heated pool.

Roughing It follows the travels of young Mark Twain through the Wild West during the years 1861-1867. After a brief stint as a Confederate cavalry militiaman, he joined his brother Orion Clemens, who had been appointed Secretary of the Nevada Territory, on a stagecoach journey west.

Twain consulted his brother’s diary to refresh his memory and borrowed heavily from his active imagination for many stories in the novel. Roughing It illustrates many of Twain’s early adventures, including a visit to Salt Lake City, gold and silver prospecting, real-estate speculation, and his beginnings as a writer.
