To go to St. Petersburg for the weekend or holidays has become commonplace for Muscovites. Four hours by train “Sapsan” — and here you are in the capital of Peter’s luxury and balls Catherine’s era. Today, however, St. Petersburg is not only trips to countless museums, boat trips along the Neva river and excursions to the luxurious Imperial palaces. Peter is rapidly developing, becoming more and more modern: now they go to the Northern capital for the sake of modern Spa resorts, unique hotels, new gastronomic sensations. Passion.ru tells where to stay, eat, relax and spend a couple of days in the city on the Neva river and its surroundings.
Where to stay
The latest trend among tourists is the choice of accommodation is intimate and cosy hotels. If you also want something new and unusual, then boutique hotels are the best option. They are usually located in the buildings of old mansions with a rich history. Each room is a unique design project. One of these hotels, which we found in St. Petersburg – DOM BOUTIQUE HOTEL on Gangutskaya street, a few minutes from the Summer Palace of Peter I. It is located in a former Apartment building of the XIX century. Dom BOUTIQUE HOTEL received its first guests in 2016, and despite the fact that the building was renovated, every corner of it seems imbued with history.
The design of the hotel, as well as rooms, where each piece of furniture was created by a special sketch, was developed by London professionals. In the lobby of the hotel guests pass on the real marble floor, and in rooms — on a parquet from natural breeds of a tree. Each room has its own highlight: a bright yellow wardrobe, or red chairs, or elegant black tiles in the bathroom. Someone may think that the decor of the hotel and rooms is quite defiant and too bright, but undoubtedly it is impressive. Continue reading
Even if your friends or a young man can not keep you company, it does not mean that you have to say goodbye to dreams of rest and for the next two weeks to sit in the city. But that your trip was not hopelessly spoiled, the choice of direction should be approached as responsibly as possible. Passion.ru made a ranking of countries where women should not go alone. For your own good!
It would seem that what dangers can lie in wait for the fair sex in one of the most developed countries of the world? However, there are negative aspects and they are not so little. In this protected area of the Earth usually tend to get the most daring and courageous tourists who, if anything, know how to behave in a given situation. And if you are not one of them, then choose to travel “solo” something less exotic. For example, if you suddenly decide to swim in the warm ocean waters, then you should make sure to start that there are no sea bees, tiny jellyfish and blue-ringed octopus with deadly poison. And the meeting with the white shark, you see, will also be very inconvenient. In addition, familiarity with unattractive spiders-centipedes, snakes, which are found here in large numbers, peacefully dormant crocodiles or fluffy kangaroos does not Bode well for you. And if the first all clear, but iron seem quite peaceful kangaroo is simply dangerous. This animal can knock you out with one blow and at best you will get off with bruises and abrasions. And numerous stories of tourists about how snakes crawled into their room or impressively crawled between the rows on the plane, driving passengers into a stupor, is not a fiction. Locals have long been accustomed to such tests of strength, but the ladies who decided to visit the Australian continent for the first time alone, just do not envy.
Let’s start with the fact that this country, where a few years ago the Olympic games were held, was not so great for tourists and especially for women. “What about hot Latin American men?”- you will notice reasonably and will be partly right. In the same Rio de Janeiro, for example, is much quieter than in Sao Paulo, so we will focus on this city. If, for example, you are in these “stone jungle” or the city where most of the finances of the whole country revolves, then you should not just be careful, but as much as possible to remember everything that you were once in the lessons of survival. For example, according to statistics, it is ladies, despite the increased police patrols, often become victims of robberies, giving fraudsters all the most valuable, including expensive cameras, handbags and jewelry. In addition, if you happen to accidentally bring in the favelas (slums), where there is no developed infrastructure and high crime rate, there is a chance not to get out, so you should be very careful and do not move away from the tourist routes. In addition, according to the same statistics, in this country every year up to 40 thousand people are killed, and the rape of pretty tourists here is becoming a common phenomenon: the police only shrugs and prefers not to mess with the brisk local hooligans.

If you want to combine business with pleasure and look for happiness in another country, then our selection will definitely come in handy. Passion.ru I chose several countries where the most temperamental gentlemen live, ready not only to rediscover familiar directions for you, but also to amaze you with their ardor and ingenuity. And even if the “acquaintance with the continuation” is not included in your plans, you can still visit these places and see for yourself how true the rating of “the sexiest and most loving men”.
“Oh-La-La”, about the ingenuity and tireless French men know, perhaps, all women in the world. After all, they planted not only the whole of Europe, but also the rest of the country, on such a sensual aphrodisiac as chocolate, invented the “French kiss” and other piquancy. Romance, mystery, light negligence, love for experiments and the ability to prove their passion and feelings not only in words but also in practice, makes them almost ideal lovers. They know how to take care of beautiful and ready to do anything to please your partner. By the way, according to estimates of sexologists, the average Frenchman has irrepressible sexuality and indulges in love pleasures at least 165 times a year.
Contrary to popular belief, this country is also home to sexual and temperamental men who are able to conquer you with their brutality, deliberate rudeness and rollicking dances. Open heart, unpretentious gallantry, children’s spontaneity, enthusiasm, the ability to relax on a wide scale, naturalness, assertiveness and a sincere desire to please his partner distinguishes them from the rest of the “foreign lovers”. Romantic gestures, of course, do not have to wait for them, but they are more than it will pay off with constancy and devotion.
Hot Latin American macho prefer to move from words to action and instead of long conversations about love, in practice prove that they are not in vain considered one of the most temperamental and sexy men in the world. They are plants with a twist and without embarrassment will demonstrate their passionate nature wherever possible. By the way, local residents have long been accustomed to such a manifestation of feelings, but tourists (or rather, tourists) such a heat of passion enters into a stupor and drives into the paint. But if you are not a timid and happy to dance incendiary dances with Brazilian men, then be prepared for a dizzying romance, more reminiscent of an endless carnival than a quiet Harbor.
