The city has always been known as free and independent. Even during the period of the partition of Poland, Krakow maintained its autonomy, and Polish culture and art were preserved and developed here. So it was after Poland gained independence in 1918, and when in 1945 the country became socialist.
It is worth walking along the narrow streets of the Old Town, going around its huge Market Square, visiting ancient churches, seeing the Royal Castle, dreaming over the Vistula, relaxing on the Planty, looking at the city from the height of its barrows.
Krakow is rich in attractions. For those who do not know Polish history (i.e., for ordinary tourists), the main ones are the Royal Castle, the Royal Road, the Mariacki Church, the Jagiellonian University, Planty, Continue reading
The political situation in Central Asia practically did not affect the conditions of entry – exit and stay of tourists in Kazakhstan. Firstly, Kazakhstan is geographically located away from the countries – centers of military operations, and secondly, Kazakhstan’s policy to this day is aimed at maintaining friendly relations with neighboring states. At this stage of preparation for the summer season, no influence on the part of the legislative or executive bodies is felt on Khan Tengri and Victory, which would negatively affect arriving tourists. However, at railway stations and airports, the work of customs services intensified. For ordinary tourists, checking the passport and visa regime is limited to checking passports and visas, and people with backpacks and a gortex may be asked to show the contents of backpacks, this action is legitimate, but Continue reading

A bit of history In 1715, the Russian Tsar Peter I first visited the city of Haapsalu by sea, together with Admiral General Apraksin. He stayed at the clerk’s office of Enkin. This wooden burgher house was built at the end of the 17th century and has been preserved to this day. The owner himself, a simple and business man, liked Peter so much that he appointed him the first Russian city mayor in Haapsalu. Also preserved is the “Peter Stone” on the forest road, where his carriage turned over. Peter I wanted to establish a harbor in the city of Haapsalu. And in 1798, Alexander Gorchakov was born in Haapsalu, a fellow practitioner of A. Pushkin in the lyceum, who later became the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Russia.

Thus, the Koran forbids the depiction of plants and animals, and although there is no direct condemnation of art, one of the hadiths says: “On the Day of Judgment, God will punish artists, creators of images, demanding from them the impossible: to revive their creations.” Therefore, painting and sculpture are absent in classical Islamic culture.
