Praktické informácie o Portugalsku: Čo vidieť v Lisabone, na Sintre, Obide, Coimbre a Porte

Po niekoľkoročnom rozprávaní o tom ako sa vydáme do Lisabonu sa to naozaj podarilo. V máji 2018 sme utreli zaprášeného, 5 rokov starého knižného sprievodcu o Portugalsku, zbalili kufre a naplánovali cestu do: Lisabonu, Obidos, Sintry, Coimbry a Porta.

Tento článok bude skôr praktickým zdrojom informácií ako popisom našej cesty, takže pokiaľ zháňaš nejaké šikovné rady o tom, kde je dobré miesto bez turistov, čítaj ďalej. Predtým ako napíšem praktické názvy hotelov či pamiatok, ktoré vrelo odporúčame, spísala som zopár rád, ktoré ti pomôžu pri balení a takom základnom obraze čo od Portugalska očakávať.

Chachapoyas: Edge of jungle full of hidden gems

Chachapoyas is a small town in Amazonas also known for being a “ceja de la selva” which means an eyebrow/edge of the jungle. The town itself is very small, simple and very safe. It is not very well known among tourists so you can enjoy real local and peaceful atmosphere. Apart from Plaza de Armas, there is one street for pedestrians with historical buildings. Accommodation and food is mostly provided by simple hostels and restaurants but the tourism is developing and you can already find some nice places to eat.

I included useful info about prices and how to get there and short description. I hope the photos will inspire you to hit the road, cause Vietnam is beautiful.
