Glamping is a romantic trend

The word “glamping” in the spring of wanders on the Internet. Glamorous camping is a new trend in tourism, comfort combined with romance.
If the word is foreign, then the phenomenon is described in the framework of the Varangian theory. Supposedly so loved to relax the British colonists: put in the middle of the native local color tents with all European amenities and received exotic and comfort in one bottle. Then the Americans went on Safari to Africa with their own facilities. And then all this appeared in Russia.

In fact, glamping is our native, post-Soviet phenomenon. It is a natural consequence and a hybrid of romance of the 60s and lawlessness of the 90s.
The story of glamorous tents

In the 60-80-ies of the last century, the Soviet people rested mainly in the campaign in tents or at the grandmother in the village. Trade Union vouchers are not considered — it was a one-time success, not a way of life.

And in the 90s suddenly opened the border, the people saw instead of trade Union resorts luxury hotels and decided that he was worthy. But for 20 years, the public is partly fed up, partly came under the distribution of the crisis and sanctions — and romance again became fashionable. All I wanted to grandma in the village or camping with a tent. And if the problem of combining “grandmother” with a five-star hotel partly solved cottage villages and eco-hotels, the tents came lining. On the one hand, I want romance. On the other — romance without a toilet, hot water and WiFi is not everyone under force. And here there is glamping — the same tents in the deep forest, but with warm floors, charging for the phone and a platform under the grill (because the current legislation and safety rules do not allow to make fires directly in the forest).

In the footsteps of the “Magnificent century”: what is definitely worth seeing in Istanbul

After the cult series was released, many immediately rushed to buy tickets for the next flights to Turkey to follow in the footsteps of Hürrem and see with their own eyes the places where the action of the picture unfolded and serious passions were boiling. Together with experts of the international tourist meta-search momondo.ru we decided to introduce you to the main attractions associated with the series, and immerse you in the era of the “Magnificent century”.
Turkish TV series “Magnificent century” conquered the audience with its exciting story, a story of passionate love of Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent and his concubine Roxolana and stunning Oriental flavor. Although the series takes place in the 16th century, fans of the epic can easily plunge into its atmosphere — just take a plane ticket to Istanbul. For example, according to the tourist meta-search momondo.ru, direct flight to the largest city in Turkey from Moscow and back in may costs from 9,5 thousand rubles, and a double room in a 4 star hotel — from 999 rubles per night. Where to go in Istanbul in the footsteps of the heroes of the series?

Topkapi Palace
The series takes place in the main Palace of Istanbul — Topkapi. Today it is a Museum, which after the release of melodrama became even more popular among tourists: inside and at the entrance sold many Souvenirs with its symbols: jewelry “a La Roksolana”, bags, notebooks, dishes depicting the characters and historical books about the reign of Suleiman the Magnificent. The shooting itself, however, took place not here — for them were built special pavilions that mimic the Palace. However, fans of the series will see in the Museum familiar interiors, including the Sultan’s chambers and the famous harem, where intrigues and passions were boiling. Rooms and corridors of the Palace abound with Oriental luxury and diversity, and from the inner Park offers stunning views of the Bosphorus. Continue reading

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
