Spain closes beaches due to deadly jellyfish

Too bright, scary shots of the victims were published in local media, and rescue services are in no hurry to lower the alarming red flags. In Andalusia, a tailwind from Benidorm caught up with the armada of Portuguese ships – beautiful, but deadly sea creatures. And people are forced to flee ashore.

“The pain was unbearable, for the first time in my life I began to beg for death, if only it would stop,” reporters quoted Naomi Mateos as saying. She became the most famous victim of the Portuguese ships this season, while the rest of the victims chose to remain incognito. Photos of a web of traces of poisonous tentacles of jellyfish on the skin of a 23-year-old girl are more eloquent than any arguments of the authorities. And her story is an example that danger can lie in wait for everyone. Continue reading

What tourists should not do in Israel

Freedom is felt in other cities. But in the Holy Land there are taboos that are better not to break.

Wearing indecent clothing in religious neighborhoods
At the entrance to the religious quarters of Israeli cities there are warning signs: “It is forbidden to enter with an organized tourist group and in indecent clothing.” Ultra-Orthodox Jews are extremely negative about t-shirts, shorts, short skirts and a neckline. For tourists who want to see with their own eyes the focus of Israeli color and feel the atmosphere of the pre-war European ghetto, there is a dress code.

Dress code in the religious quarters of Israeli cities

Men should be in long trousers, a shirt and closed boots, always with a covered head. Women need to close their knees and elbows. Pants and, especially, jeans are not suitable: in a religious quarter you can only wear a wide skirt that covers your knees, a loose shirt or sweater with long sleeves. Clothing should not emphasize the figure. An unmarried woman is supposed to walk with her head uncovered, but long hair needs to be bundled. If a woman is married, a scarf should be on her head.

10 places in Helsinki that will not be shown to “package” tourists

Walking along the narrow shopping streets, sandwiched between laconic, austere modern buildings, tourists complain about the lack of attractions. Basically, people come to the capital of Finland for one day to make stylish purchases in the designer quarter and try local dishes, after which they go to other Scandinavian countries or return to Russia. Meanwhile, the sights of the city are not only Aleksanterinkatu Street, Senate Square with the Cathedral and Market Square. If you turn off the hiking trails, Helsinki will pleasantly surprise you with the beauty of sea landscapes and a peaceful atmosphere, and photographs on the background of little-known sights will decorate your Instagram profile.

Unfortunately, seeing the most interesting places in Helsinki will not work as part of an excursion group – most of them are located outside the center. To see all the sights from the list, it is most convenient to purchase a pass for 2-3 days and use comfortable public transport. Continue reading
