Dublin: O Keltikos tiger is still alive!

Despite the crisis, Ireland's capital has much to offer visitors - even at lower prices, and always with a glass of beer ...


Visitors will never be a city that has as its main tourist attractions pubs, an old brewery and a prison complex? Dublin is doing just that, and it remains one of the most interesting destinations in Europe for short trips. With hundreds of great bars and restaurants and a newly acquired, but very lively nightlife, the capital of Ireland most welcome travelers from around the world. The culture and temperament of Dubliners are, not unfairly, several relatives to the Greeks and is very easy to find yourself talking to a resident of the city that you will want to tell stories from his life. This does not mean, of course, that are missing from the city's traditional tourist options such impressive churches and castles.

In any event, city tour usually starts from the Temple Bar, the tourist "Mecca" of Dublin, which has elements of medieval architecture. During the Great "glory" of the 90s, the Temple Bar area currently threatened to become a new "Faliraki". Hundreds of British tourists drank beer rivers before reaching the corner of a street, almost comatose. For the conservative society of Ireland these images were a wild adolescence, which fortunately was overcome relatively quickly. In adulthood the Temple Bar course, remains the most touristic part of town, but regains the lost character again attracting the Dubliners, who had begun to drop.

The fact that the area of ​​Temple and hosts some of the most beautiful churches in the country, like the cathedrals of Jesus, St. Patrick and Immaculate Conception, reveals the almost 'schizophrenic' coexistence of modern Puritanism of the past. Dublin is one of the most conservative and religious societies of Europe, which was suddenly in deep waters of the western lifestyle.

Walking south, the visitor passes through Trinity area, which hosts the largest university in Ireland before coming to St Stephen's Green. At this point, namely the pedestrian Grafton, now the heart beat of modern Ireland. The period of so-called 'Celtic Tiger' Dubliners hordes test the limits of their credit card in a luxury department stores such as Brown Thomas. Dozens of restaurants sprang up month after month in the narrow alleys of the area, offering unprecedented flavors to the rather limited culinary traditions of the Irish, while next to traditional pubs in nicely brown.

Despite the fact that after thousands of Irish crisis difficult to enjoy what it has to offer the pedestrian Grafton, the area is not lost nothing of its luster. The Bewley's Café, with its impressive stained glass in the window, remains a landmark of breakfast or afternoon coffee in an environment evoking the 19th century. Images of a distant past provides a short distance, and McDaid's pub - probably the best city to watch a rugby or football match. In the same bar where beer flows with today have passed some of the most important Irish writers of the last two centuries. Here, indeed, was born and the so-called "circle of artistic McDaid pub» from people other than their literary skills, and were renowned for their resistance to alcohol.

However, if shopping, walks in temples and museums and continuous birokatanyxi your tired, you can relax a ride from passing ... prison. On the western side of the city you can see the impressive complex Kilmainham Gaol, the cells of which "hosted" some of the most emblematic figures of modern Irish history. For centuries the prison of Kilmainham Gaol prison architecture were standard for the whole world, referring to the famous "panoptic" of Bentham - a room in which a prisoner feels under constant surveillance. And if you suddenly flooded a feeling déjà vu and you feel that you have found in the same area in the past, is (probably) why this building was used in dozens of movies, such as "In the Name of the Father" with Daniel Day Lewis.

In a relatively short distance from the prison of Kilmainham and is the second largest "temple" of modern and contemporary history of Dublin - the famous brewer of Guinness. The six-storey building in the shape of beer mugs, home to 1904's production facilities most famous Irish beer and now serves solely as a museum. The tour of the area and the history of modern brewing leads inevitably to the great bar of the sixth floor, with panoramic views across Dublin and the surrounding industrial zone that resembles something out of a Dickens novel. For the record, the fanatics of the tours in the history of alcohol can go and then the old distilleries of Jameson.

In contrast to the historic Dublin, and literally on the other side of town, is the area of ​​Docklands, who aspired to become a small Manhattan Ireland. A Calatrava bridge and the abandoned building next to the bank Anglo Irish Bank (which collapsed in the financial crisis) are embossed image of the explosive growth and equally explosive collapse. Nonetheless, from spring until late summer, the Docland's done a magnificent location for an afternoon stroll and beer for business executives enjoying their lunch break. The fact that in the same area and a memorial to the victims of the great famine of 1847 (results and this economic choices of the government) is available for several more semantic connotations - but which can and should avoid. Let's not forget, moreover, that the visitor Dublin remains a haven of peace and fun for a few days or as a stand ... your liver.

HOW TO GET TO DUBLIN

The largest European airlines offer daily flights (with a stop at the airport the "home" of them), which means that the flight will not take less than five hours and will hardly cost less than 350 euros. Two buses (Air Link, Aircoach) continuously connect the airport with the city and the taxi ride should not exceed 25 to 30 euros. Dublin is, in general, 'searchable' walk, and several bus lines, a tram line and thousands (literally) taxis help the tired hikers.

Journey to South India

Those who have visited India described it as a place full of colors, smells and unforgettable images. But no description, no imagination can not get what he sees and experiences when one goes there

Our journey "COUNTRIES" two southern districts of India, Tamil Nadu and Kerala. Landed in Chennai (formerly known as Mandras), they would start our journey. H fifth largest city in India and capital of Tamil Nadu is a cultural and artistic center and presents unique contrasts. The first ride in a real assault on the senses of the traveler: animals, cars and tuk-tuk (the traditional Indian taxis, three-wheeled carts yellow), women in colorful saris and men in dhoti (large pieces of fabric tied at the waist as skirts ), all together in a suffocating, almost eerie.

Scenes etched forever in memory, in both the uniqueness and simplicity: people talking and laughing and sitting or lying on the streets, a woman combing her daughter's hair, a man makes women's jewelery with white flowers on a makeshift bench, a cow crosses the street, people carry on their heads huge volumes of straw, a man playing with a monkey on the roadside, people, noise and bustle. The strong stench - the sewers is not only large ditches along the road, the noise unbearable, the throng unstoppable.
