Name of the „dream” place: Helsinki, Finland
Why I think it’s worth to see?:
Founded in 1550, the "Daughter of the Baltic" has been the Finnish capital since 1812, when it was rebuilt by the tsars of Russia along the lines of a miniature St. Petersburg. As the snow falls, the idyllic summer town is replaced with something completely different, but equally alive with opportunities for a great time. Helsinki is a compact town, in the best possible way. The capital of Finland is a compact city easily explored on foot. Design, architecture, culture and shopping are all great exploration angles and large park areas, forests, lakes, and the coastline with numerous islands sprinkled off it make certain there’s no shortage of natural presence. Needless to say, there’s something going on in Helsinki every day of the year.

Giethoorn, Netherlands

Giethoorn is a small village in the North East of the Netherlands and is known as the Venice of the Netherlands as it is mostly car free and people travel by boat through the network of waterways through beautiful countryside with lots of pretty thatched houses alongside. There are also lots of footpaths and cycle routes so it's a great place to forget about cars and busy roads.

Name of the favourite place: Rotterdam, Netherland
Why I chose it? What made it so special?:
Rotterdam is a city of many faces: a tough port city, a trendy nightlife city, a sophisticated shopping city, and a hip artistic city. Full of energy and innovation, Rotterdam reinvented itself after the bombing of the Second World War. It broke with the past and chose modern architecture. The motto: light, air and space, was ground breaking for that time. Rotterdam still embraces experimentation: almost anything is possible. Here, you are constantly surprised by new initiatives: from a rooftop city farm to a music festival in the harbour, from an exclusive rooftop bar to a brewery in an old warehouse. Is Rotterdam a must see city? Absolutely! ☺

Dubrovnik is a one-town tourist industry on its own and the most photographed city in Croatia.

Name of the „dream” place: Chichen Itza, Mexico
Why I think it’s worth to see?:
Chichen Itza is the most famous of all the great Mayan cities. This is somewhat ironic because its most famous structures do not have a typical Classic Mayan architecture. It is also the most developed of the many Mayan ruins and can get crowded. But the combination of grant scale monuments and the mysterious precise astronomical calculation in the buildings make the Chichen Itza ruins truly amazing. The Maya name “Chich’en Itza” means “At the mouth of the well of the Itza”.
