Svet Dimitrov: Kassel – the Gem of Nothern Hesse

Svet introduces unknown German gems to us. Not so unknown anymore…
Kassel, lying in the Northern part of Hesse, is not among the most known German cities. However, it surely punches above its weight by offering the largest natural park, situated on a hill, in Europe. In addition, it boasts more than 300 different restaurants which, for a city of around 200,000 people, is quite significant. Dip yourself in history by going to Grimm Platz or have a day-trip to Hann Münden (only 15 km away from Kassel) to explore its historic centre and ponder at the three rivers that unite there.

Mamá en Bulgaria: Asenova Krepost – the spectacular fortress of Assen

Here’s the surprise – practice your skills to understand Spanish and check out Marta’s impressions on this Bulgarian landmark!

Asenova Krepost is a wonderful medieval fortress located in the heart of Rhodope montains, just 3 km away from the city of Assenovgrad. It was built in the 9th century, but after being destroyed, tsar Assen rebuilt it in 1231 and from then on it took his name. Nowadays the fortress is almost completely destroyed, but the church of St. Mary of Petrich is still standing, and even functions as a regular orthodox church. The views from the top are just amazing, this place is definitely worth a visit.
