With this article we are closing the tour through individual countries. Our last trip will take place in one of the most stunning places, in terms of natural beauty, in the world - visit Iceland with us.
Many cities are defined by their skyline. Some stand distinguished mainly because of their historical buildings while others stand out on account of the tall vertical structures. Which are the cities with the most skyscrapers? This is our topic for today's photo gallery.
One of the last trips that will feature an individual country will take us to Australia - the smallest continent in the world, where the distances are often greater than the distances separating the largest countries in Europe. Seventy percent of Australia’s area is covered with deserts or semi-deserts, which is why the greatest part of the Australian population lives in the cities on the coasts. The country's magnificent scenery attracts millions of tourists every year.
Our next Austrian university town is a beautiful small city with a population of 150 000, near the German border. Listed in UNESCO, and situated close by the Alps, it is the birthplace of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart... and these are only few interesting facts about it. Here is all that is worth seeing while studying at one of Salzburg‘s three universities.
Named one of the UNESCO world heritage sites only in 1996, the city of Salzburg was made famous long before then with the film The Sound of Music in 1965 which was inspired by the true story of the von Trapp family. This fabulous city was relatively less known before then.
One million, five hundred thousand? To get closer to the precise numbers, you will need to come down bit more. A list of the world’s least populated national capitals can be found in our new article.
Following up on our visit to Japan last week, we now move on to the neighbouring country of Korea. Divided in 1948 into a communist North Korea and democratic South Korea, the two Korean regimes can boast, possibly, the most fortified border in the world. For many obvious reasons, these two countries present very contrasting systems. Check out our gallery.
With every introduced University City we follow up the summary of universities with the visual article that aims to suggest the places that are worth visiting while studying there. Last week we completed the first country of Czech Republic and we are now about to start the neighbouring one - Austria with it capital Vienna.
Last week we visited the USA. This week we take a westwards direction from there and stop in another country – a country that counts a decent number of years in its own history, has an atmosphere that is filled with contrast, has held onto many of its traditions to the present time, and can probably boast the hardest-working people in the world. Visit Japan, the country of the rising sun.
