Zagorze Slaskie, Poland

3

The main reason people flock to Zagorze Slaskie, a relatively small village located in the Own Mountains, is because of the ruins of the Grodno Castle, which was established back in the 13th century. Another reason to visit the village is because of Bystrzyckie Lake, one of the most alluring reservoir lakes in the Sudety Mountains.

Grodno Castle was built on the peak of Mount Choina, which is situated 450 meters above sea level, and is regarded as one of the most beautiful castles in Poland. Getting to it will not only provide you with the chance to visit a museum that shows you its history, but you will also be rewarded with a breathtaking view of the mountains. One more thing you can visit in Zagorze Slaskie is the Church of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, established somewhere around the year 1500. Even though it looks simple and has a modest interior, it’s still a popular tourist attraction.

Cartagena, Colombia

Looking like a place taken straight out of a fairy tale, Cartagena is the most visited city in all of Colombia. It is located on the northern coast of the country, and it faces the Caribbean Sea. The city is significant because it once served as the first Spanish colony on the continent and was one of the first sanctuaries where freed African slaves could find peace on the American continent. The city center remains largely unchanged since the 17th century, and is still filled with beautiful mansions, churches, and palaces.

Tourists often go only to two main parts of the city – Bocagrande, a long strip featuring condos and hotels situated on the beach and the walled colonial city (otherwise known as ciudad amurallada). One of the most popular tourist attractions in Cartagena is the Castillo de San Felipe, which is a fortress established during the 17th century that was served as protection against pirates while the Spanish were shipping gold out to the rest of the European continent.
