Open season: the seven best beach destinations of autumn

September‑October is a very pleasant holiday time.
Prices at the resorts begin a solemn decline on the beaches is rapidly reducing the number of tourists, and the weather is conducive to long trips and excursions. Having carefully studied the map of the world, we have found seven directions for you, where it will be warm and not boring in the velvet season.
Santorini, Greece

Weather: September air +24…+26, water +22, October air +22…+24, water +21

Blue domes of churches, snow-white walls of almost toy houses on the ledges of rocks and colorful volcanic beaches have long turned Santorini into a postcard island. Both nature and people worked on the creation of the island. Nature for him three and a half thousand years ago blew up the volcano Santorini and left on the surface only the edge of the crater. Everything else, along with the crater has sunk to the bottom and from there the Aegean sea is still boiling: on the surface of the water the temperature does not fall below +30 C even in September‑October. The place of the “saucepan” is quite simple to determine: there are almost always tourist boats cruising and diving fans tickle their nerves.

Where to stay: Proteas Hotel in Kamari. Double room in September will cost 4 300 rubles per day.
Liguria, Italy

Weather: in September air +24…+26, water +23, in October air +21…+23, water +21.

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
