Cool pictures from different cities - Page 4

post #46 of 109
It was closed, we were lucky to see anything, but the trip was still incredible, the Opera house was open for tours only, but there happens to be an incredulous little hot spot directly across from the Opera that has the most beautiful women in the world dancing at the club at night. We wanted to visit Terezin, but it was under water...then to top it all off, we had memories of 9/11 pop up the day we were leaving for Paris, a bomb scare at the airport at 6 am believe it or not....but all in all, looking forward to our return, will be staying right next to old town at the Marriott.

the marriott is where I stayed with my family last year. Nice place, excellent breakfast, right on the metro line. You will also be right near the municipal house and the paris hotel. both have great resteraunts, if you want to have a nice meal while in town. have fun..

I think food will still be a fairly good value in Prague. I never really got into the shopping in Prague, if I wanted better value I'd visit Budapest or even Bratislava, which are both dirt cheap compared to Prague. I went there about 5 times during my 6 months in Vienna, mostly for clubbing. Prague is one of my favorite cities in Europe, I think the other Eastern European capitals may be better if you are looking for deals, and all of them (especially Budapest) have a plethora of hot women. Haven't visited Sofia or Bucharest though, globetrotter, you've been there right, how are they? I know cheap...

sofia is intersting - it is pocket sized, you can walk across it easily. prices are very cheap. their used to be a lot of metal work there under the nazis and then the communists, so you can get a lot of interesting antiques- knives, cane swords, lighters, fountain pens, flasks etc. food is very cheap, with a couple of good bulgarian resteraunts (think austrian with a rusian and italian influence - caviar, venison, mutton) and a few good italian and chinese places. good cheap wine, pirated english books, cds,, dvds and fake watches. the archetecture is very nice, but on a small scale compared to the other capitals. the coolest spot in town is the ex-soviet wwii monument, with a huge communist soldier and his old fashined machine pistol hugging a peasant woman and a mechanic - it has been turned into a skateboard park with newly capitalistic kids skating over the old stalinist stuff. oh, very very sexy women, and every taxi driver in the city can get you laid, if you are into that sort of thing. I only started going to Sofia after I got married and so I missed out on all that. and some very cool strip clubs. Bucharest - very beutiful city, in terms of archetecture. it was a very rich city before wwii, so all the cool stuff is from that era. also a lot of very impressive communist stuff. the downside is that the roads are in horrible shape and most of the buildings are poorly maintained. good deals in furs, wooden stuff, great cheap wines, very cheap good food and drink and gorgeous women, all of whom seem to be available for the price of dinner. at the airport you see a very common sight of geeky middle aged men saying good bye to gorgeous blond tall women who were their "girlfriends" while they were in town. the clubs that I went to were very good, and you have a lot of pretty women to dance with (aside from the prostitutes). you also have wierd stuff like clubs where they bring a rolling table to you with a naked woman covered in fruit salad and whipped cream and you eat the whiped cream off or a club that specializes in proctal massages. neither are as nice as budapest or prague, but you can spend a weekend in either without seeing a tourist.

sounds kinda similar to the trip I'm planning for this coming summer, going to London, Barcelona, Florence, Rome, Capri, Vienna, Prague, Athens, then the Greek isles.... about a month.

in athens I usually stay at the intercontinental, it's slightly out of the downtown area, but walkable, and its a nice place. it is not that far from the water, and their are some clubs in the area. If I had the money, I would stay at the Bretange - you might want to check that out. I have also stayed at the novotel, which is very reasonalbe. My favorite resteraunt their is the Psarras at the corner of Erentheos and Erotkirtou in the plaka. not really fancy, and you will see tourists there, but alos locals and it is a real taverna. good views, good basic greek food. for much better food, their are two good places - Devani Caravel and Eveline, both not to far from the hilton. and their is a nighborhood called the Vari where you can get good simple roast meats. see the plaka, the cyclatic museum, and the acropolis what ever else you do. I like walking around the city, it is basically safe - the metro wasn't finished last time I was in town, but that should be cool. Berlin is great - get to the KaDeWe, a huge department store, the zoo has a a panda and dwarf hippos, the pergomon museum is a must see. Kant strasse is where you will find the ethnic resteraunts, and I recomend cafe einstien for a local (ish because its actually austrian not prussian) food. take the 100 bus, sit on the top deck and go between the east and west during the day and night. enjoy.

globetrotter, Do you have alot of experience with Budapest or Vienna? These are two of my very favorite cities in Europe.
post #56 of 109
drzzt, I thiink that you have more. I have been to each about 25 times, but at least half have been in transit, and the longest I have been in each has been 3 or 4 days at a pop. I love Vienna, the first time I was there was before the wall came down and I was about 22, and I have made itback for business. I love citing in small cafes and just walking around the city. the mueums are also fantastic. the first time I was there was for an egon schuele restrospective, and I was overwhelmed by the culture of the city. about half the times I have been to budapest I have just come in the morning, spent the day at the geleirt spa for the baths, a pedicure and a massage and them flown out in the evening. Some of the places that I used to go were best hubbed by the budapest airport. I love the old airport in budapest, too. all in all its a great city.

You get up too early on here, where are you located globetrotter....i thought I was the only one in the Eastern US on here at 6:30 am.
post #58 of 109
I work with a lot of time zones, I am at my computer before 6 am, but that allows me to be with my son by 6:30 pm. why don't you sleep later?
post #59 of 109
If I am going to get all of the internet sales taken care of, run a brick and mortar, and respond to emails about grenson etc, i have to start early, besides, i hate traffic...maybe more than anything

globetrotter, For men there is one spa that's a bit better than Gellert, it's more Russian style than Turkish, and for men only, so you may want to give it a shot, as Gellert is a bit more touristy and a bit pricier than this place, even though it has been around forever. I'll get the name of it and let you know, so you can check it out next time you are in the area, it's supposed to be the best in the city, apparently it was featured in the movie "red heat" Just found the name, its Rudas Furdo, apparently the oldest spa in Budapest.
