...am going to write about today are awesome places.

Today's post will be written by me, but since Ágota is sitting right besides me, this will be about her favorite places.
So keep on reading everybody!

First off, Dubrovnik!

It's a Croatian city on the Adriatic Sea coast, positioned at the terminal end of the Isthmus of Dubrovnik. It is one of the most prominent tourist destinations on the Adriatic, a seaport and the centre of Dubrovnik-Neretva county.
The patron saint of the city is Sveti Vlaho (Saint Blaise), whose statues are seen around the city. He has an importance similar to that of St. Mark the Evangelist to Venice.
The city boasts of many old buildings, such as the Arboretum Trsteno, the oldest arboretum in the world, dating back to before 1492. Also, the third oldest European pharmacy is located in the city, which dates back to 1317 (and is the only one still in operation today).

Number two place is Saint Petersburg.

It is a city and a federal subject (a federal city) of Russia located on the Neva River at the head of the Gulf of Finland on the Baltic Sea. Saint Petersburg was founded by Tsar Peter the Great on May 27 1703.
The Historic Centre of Saint Petersburg and Related Groups of Monuments constitute a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Saint Petersburg is also home to The Hermitage, one of the largest art museums in the world.
Saint Petersburg is home to numerous parks and gardens, some of the most famous of which are situated in the southern suburbs, including one of the largest English gardens of Europe in Pavlovsk.
Saint Petersburg is home to more than two hundred museums, many of them hosted in historic buildings.

The third place is Bangalore.

Bangalore is nicknamed the Garden City for its gardens and parks and was once called a pensioner's paradise. Located on the Deccan Plateau in the south-eastern part of Karnataka, Bangalore is India's third most populous city and fifth-most populous urban agglomeration.
In May 2012, Lonely Planet ranked Bangalore among the world's top 10 cities to visit.
The city has a vibrant English and regional language theatre scene with organisations such as Ranga Shankara and Chowdiah Memorial Hall leading the way. Bangalore is also sometimes called as the "Pub Capital of India" and is one of the premier places to hold international rock concerts.

Makgadikgadi Pan is our fourth pit stop. It's not a city, but it's really worth mentioning (I've actually never heard of it before, so this one is a surprise to me too).

The Makgadikgadi Pan is a large salt pan in the middle of the dry savanna of northeastern Botswana. It is one of the largest salt flats in the world. The pan is all that remains of the formerly enormous Lake Makgadikgadi, which once covered an area larger than Switzerland, but dried up several thousand years ago.
The Makgadikgadi was first crossed by car by the presenters of the British TV show Top Gear, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May, in a 2007 episode. This was part of an attempt to cross Botswana in second-hand two wheel drive cars, not made for off-road, which were bought for under £1500. (Clarkson had previously crossed the Makgadikgadi using a quad bike.

The fifth place we (or anyone else for that matter) should visit is Agra.

Agra is the erstwhile capital of Hindustan, a city on the banks of the river Yamuna in the northern state of Uttar Pradesh, India.
The city finds mention in the epic Mahābhārata (I want to read that book for some reason) where it was called Agrevaṇa, or 'the border of the forest'.
The buildings you can see on the picture are the Taj Mahal (duh), and Agra Fort (I like this one better than the Taj, actually). In the city (and around it)you can also find the following places: Fatehpūr Sikrī, Itmad-Ud-Daulah's Tomb, Tomb of Akbar the Great, Swāmī Bāgh Samādhi, Mankameshwar Temple, Mughal Heritage Walk and the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception.

The sixth place we will stop at is Barcelona.

Just to see that man-made wonder, the Sagrada Familia.
Barcelona is the capital of Catalonia and the second largest city in Spain, after Madrid. Main sights (besides that cool temple) include The Barri Gòtic - the center old the old city, Park Güell, Palau Güell, Casa Milà, Casa Vicens, Casa Batlló, Palau de la Música Catalana, and Hospital de Sant Pau, all of which are World Heritage sites.

The seventh place we should mention is München (Munich).

Munich is the capital and the largest city of the German state of Bavaria. At the centre of the city is the Marienplatz—a large open square named after the Mariensäule, a Marian column in its centre—with the Old and the New Town Hall. Its tower contains the Rathaus-Glockenspiel. The Peterskirche close to Marienplatz is the oldest church of the inner city. It was first built during the Romanesque period, and was the focus of the early monastic settlement in Munich before the city's official foundation in 1158.
Four grand royal avenues of the 19th century with magnificent official buildings connect Munich's inner city with the suburbs:Briennerstrasse, Maximilianstrasse, Ludwigstrasse and Prinzregentenstrasse.
Munich is a green city with numerous parks, like The Englischer Garten, the modern Olympiapark, Westpark, and the parks of Nymphenburg Palace.

The 8th place is Geneva, the home town of CERN.

Genevais the second-most-populous city in Switzerland (after Zurich) and is the most populous city of Romandy, the French-speaking part of Switzerland. There are 82 buildings or sites in Geneva that are listed as Swiss heritage site of national significance, and the entire old city of Geneva is part of the Inventory of Swiss Heritage Sites. I don't feel the need to post them all - but the best part of it is the giant fountain in the middle of the lake. It's absolutely huge, and you can take a walk near it - and get wet as soon as you cross over the walkway.

The 9th. place is Melbourne - because who doesn't want to visit the Aussies once in a while.

Melbourne is the capital and most populous city in the state of Victoria, and the second most populous city in Australia.
Melbourne is an international cultural center, with cultural endeavors spanning major events and festivals, drama, musicals, comedy, music, art, architecture, literature, film and television. It was the second city after Edinburgh to be named a UNESCO City of Literature and has thrice shared top position in a survey by The Economist of the world's most liveable cities on the basis of a number of attributes which include its broad cultural offerings.
Melbourne is the birthplace of television in Australia, and it is also home to the headquarters of Village Roadshow Pictures, Australia's largest film production company. Famous modern day actors from Melbourne include Cate Blanchett, Rachel Griffiths, Olivia Newton-John, Guy Pearce and Eric Bana.

The 10th and last one for today is a local place, a national park you might never even heard about: Domogled- Valea Cernei.

It's actually quite a new one, opened up in 1990. It's in the south-western part of Romania, on the territory of 3 counties: Caraş-Severin, Mehedinţi and Gorj. It has all kinds of different types of landscapes with mountain peaks and fast flowing rivers, with forests and thermal caves and all kinds of rare flowers and animals. If you ever come around the place you should really visit it.
