To escape the severity of everyday routine, to change the city noise, birds singing and the crash of waves and the dull gray landscape — beautiful views and picturesque nature, it is absolutely regardless of the time of the year for Windows? This is feasible only 54 km away from metropolis — the reporter Passion.ru checked out the new Wellness program year-round resort “Igora” on himself and is willing to share experiences.
Remember how the heroes of Russian classics, just that, immediately went “on the water” — to treat ailments and broken hearts? In our case, of course, we are talking about SPA-centers, where the most demanding customers are offered not just body care, but give a special state, an atmosphere that creates a feeling of bliss and peace. This Paradise for me was the SPA-complex of the all-season resort “Igor” near St. Petersburg. I came there to visit my family and at some point realized that I just need at least a couple of days to escape from the problems that literally pressed on the shoulders — physically felt the tension in the neck and collar area. And at home in Moscow for a good massage just did not have enough time and effort…
In General, my family advised me to go to the resort “Igor” — a local complex has earned fame as one of the most professional and comfortable SPA in St. Petersburg and Leningrad region. On the phone, I learned that just recently launched a new program of three -, five – and eight-day SPA-tours “Antistress”. What you need!
Sanus per aqua
The creators of the complex in the first place brought to life the generally accepted formula SPA, or Sanus Per Aqua: “Through water — to health.” The swimming area of the complex includes swimming pools — adult and children — with water from an artesian well. The pools are equipped with a modern cleaning system that allows you to take in the pools of mothers with infants, as well as guests with asthma or allergies. Continue reading

Rest in Armenia will be able to afford not only those who are lazy to apply for a visa, but also the lucky ones who forgot to update their passport! Recently, the hospitable country of Transcaucasia receives Russian tourists and the usual passport. But this, of course, is not its main advantage. Yerevan, or as the locals like to call it, the Pink city, is the heart of the country, where lovers of antiquities, fans of modern art, and hunters will be able to “hang out”. The main art gallery of the capital houses masterpieces by Rubens, Strozzi, Aivazovsky and other masters from different eras and countries. Not far from here on weekends, the famous Vernissage market takes place, where you can find everything from silver jewelry of the last century and old musical instruments to books of limited editions of the USSR. Taverns and restaurants of the city can also be ranked among its attractions. Dolma, bozbash, hash, basturma — in the menu of institutions you are waiting for hundreds of dishes worthy of the most careful study.
The cost of the flight from Moscow to Yerevan and back in may: from 12.3 thousand rubles
The cost of living in this city: from 1.7 thousand rubles in a double room 3* for one night.
Montenegro is not just a visa-free Europe. First of all, it is the medieval walls and mountain scenery, the waves of the Adriatic and the Mediterranean cuisine… Add to all the low prices have not yet opened the season — and get the perfect holiday. Swim in the sea like only seasoned: the water temperature warms up to 18-20°C. But the temperature and the gentle sun create ideal conditions for leisurely walks through the ancient cities. Fans of this pastime will suit the city of Budva and Bar. The Bar, by the way, is worth a look and avid shopaholics: there is the largest market of the Adriatic coast, full of treasures and unusual Souvenirs. And if you want to be closer to nature, go on a trekking tour of the Durmitor national Park, where you will see majestic canyons, noisy rivers, dense forests and peaceful lakes. Continue reading
If you prefer to relax exclusively in Europe, but have a very modest budget, you should not change your plans or completely abandon the trip. Passion.ru I chose several countries with no less rich history and culture than, say, Italy, Germany, France or the Czech Republic, which undeservedly deprive tourists of their attention.
Bosnia and Herzegovina
If you dream not only to admire the numerous monuments of architecture, taste the local delicacies, but also enjoy the stunning scenic views, spending a minimum of its budget, then you should visit this small state in the South-Eastern part of Europe, which is home to about 4 million people. And start your journey, perhaps, with Mostar – a unique city located in the South of Bosnia and Herzegovina, where surprisingly coexist two cultures, European and Asian.
This country will also be able to impress you with its history, traditions and natural beauty. For example, lovers of beauty should definitely look in Belgrade, where there are many attractions, museums, ancient monasteries, restaurants for every taste and budget. For fans of non-trivial routes is more suitable trip to the mountain Serbia in the small village of Mokra Gora, where near the station of the narrow-gauge road connecting Belgrade and Sarajevo, the famous Serbian Director Emir Kusturica built the village Mechavnik, where you can learn more about the Balkan culture and, in fact, the films Kusturica.
Those who choose to relax without fuss, unity with nature and leisurely walks, you can go to Slovakia. It is in this country, located in Central Europe, within the Western Carpathians, you will find Botanical gardens, national parks and mountain caves, original cuisine, as well as the absence of a crowd of annoying tourists. So you can safely explore all the attractions at your leisure. Continue reading
