Fortress Oreshek

At the source of the Neva River from Ladoga, some 24 km from St. Petersburg is an old military fortress. There truly unites all of Russian history.

Founded by the Novgorodians, which belonged to the Moscow principality, managed to be ruled by the Swedes, but then again returned to its origins (from 1702 it again belonged to Russia). What did not see the walls of this fortress, what kind of people they did not hide and did not “execute”.

Vic Beach in Iceland

The black sand beaches formed as a result of volcanic activity are impressive landscapes, more reminiscent of the landscapes of science fiction films. Vic Beach in Iceland is one of those natural wonders.

Located near the village of Vic, from which it got its name, this beach impresses with a realistic illusion of chernozem lands on the coast instead of sand. In fact, this is real sand, only formed from solidified lava and ash. Unlike Hawaiian black beaches pleasing the atmosphere of a tropical paradise, Vic Beach is not so hospitable.
