Our first online destination is the Romanian Athenaeum, one of the most beautiful places to visit as a tourist! It is located in Bucharest and it is a representative architectural monument for Romania, but also for the Balkans.
At the same time, it is a symbol of the spiritual tradition of the Romanian people.

The Guggenheim Museum
Our second destination is New York City, baby!
We are presenting the Guggenheim Museum, a symbol of the 20th century, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and considered the most important work of his late career.
The museum is said to be a monument to modernism, having a spiral ramp riding to a domed skylight and it is described to be “a highly expressive, intensely personal museum”, in the words of Paul Goldberger. Guggenheim is a place for modern and contemporary art exhibitions, lectures, performances and screenings and, of course, gallery tours.

The Astra Museum
Our next visit is in one of the biggest museums in Romania, The Astra Museum of the Traditional Folk Civilization, from Sibiu. One simple walk through its 96 hectares full of history provides the visitors with an image of the rural life from the whole Romanian land, materially represented by over 400 houses, traditional buildings, technical installations and folk art. The museum was founded in 1963 by a team led by Cornel Ilie.
The Astra Museum of the Traditional Folk Civilization is profoundly appreciated by those who visit it, being described as “worth making a detour only so you can have a chance to see it”, in the words of Karen Fogg, Head of the European Commission Delegation.

Our next stop is in Peru and we are going to discover the royal heritage of the Inca civilization.
Nestled high in the slopes of the Andes, the ruins of Machu Picchu continue to uncover the cultural patterns of the Inca Empire. The site's buildings, walls, terraces, and ramps reclaim the steep mountainous terrain and make the city blend naturally into the rock escarpments on which it is situated.
When Machu Picchu was built, about 500 years ago the Inca had very few resources, which makes the place even more impressive, considering the effort of the builders. Today Machu Picchu is far from isolated. In fact, it is a must-see for any visitor to Peru and the draw that compels many to travel to this country.
