Istanbul is one of my favourite cities. The Blue mosque and Hagia Sophia are amazing, as well as the Yeretaban Cistern and Topkapi palace. I was nicely surprised how Turkish people are incredibly pleasant people. The city is clean and safe. If you live downtown in the historical part (there are many small hotels) you can walk everywhere easily without using any transport. I can highly recommend to visit Istanbul if you want to have a special longer weekend (you need at least 3 days).

I love Rome! It isn´t a good city for living (very crowded, noisy, chaotical) but for 100% it is a paradise for lovers of a history. You can go there many times and you will always discover something new. Just be careful at the railway station Termini, there are a lot of strange people - pickpokets.

Agata and Romeo is a small, cosy restaurant (only about 10 tables) serving traditional spectacular Roman food. The pumpkin raviolli cacio e pepeI were excellent. If you want to have a peace go there immediately at 7:30 pm when they open (at this time we were there only one couple), other guests are coming later after 8:30-9 pm. I loved Agata's collection of teapots on the wall and other Art work. This restaurant I can recommend but be ready for higher prices.

The city isn´t too interesting but if you rent a car and go out of the city along the river in the direction of Köln (Cologne), you will discover very pitoresque area with a lot of old castles (on the right and left bank), vineyards, villages.... Some castles is possible to visit. Absolutely fascinating!

The Jazz boat is near the hotel InterContinental and it is easy to find it. It was quite crowded so it is better to buy a ticket in advance. The jazz band playing there was great, the food was simple, nothing special. But definitely it is value to visit this place when you are in Prague and you don´t have distaste for jazz music.

Prague is one of my favourite destinations. The city isn´t too big so if you live in a hotel located downtown, you don´t need any taxi, you can easily walk to see the most interesting sights or you can go by metro. Prague has a very good reputation regarding beautiful girls, cheap beer and rich history (mainly amazing churches from the 14th cent. when the king Charles IV. ruled the country or many baroque buildings) - I have to say - all it´s true :-)! But also it is interesting to go out of Prague and see e.g. town Cesky Krumlov, Kutna hora, castle Konopiste or Karlstejn, Carlsbad.... Very charming places! You can easily go there with some travel agency by a small microbus. I can recommend Martin tour. They have very good guides talking fluently by several languages. Czechs are polite but somewhat reserved, at least at the beginning when they don´t know you.

I went with Martin tour twice for a one day trip - once to see the castle Cesky Sternberk and for the second time to the lovely town Kutna hora, where is situated the fascinating cathedral St. Barbora. Generally both places were wonderful and the guide was very professional, friendly and spoke fluently by several languages - English, German and Italian... The microbus was very comfortable, we were about 14 foreigners from different countries. Fantastic! Highly recommended!

I used a couple of times the City taxi, they are reliable, usually have Mercedes cars but the drivers don´t speak English. Or if so, just a few words.

I love the Charles Bridge but the problem is that is always very crowded. Once I walked there at 6 am in winter when was snowing - no people, the silence and white snow everywhere - something what I never forget... Very impressive!

It is difficult to understand Belgium. It is a small country but was never too cohesive. There is permanently always a threat of a disintegration into two parts - southern with francophone Waloons and northern part with Dutch speaking Flemings. Already now these both regions live by their own life. Waloons and Flemings have their own TV stations, books, newspapers, they have different schools, study from different curriculums and also they vote their own politicians... I can recommend tourists to visit Brugges. It is our "Venice" - a very romantic city. Then also Gent and Antwerp are very nice cities, more interesting then Brussels.
