  • 4* Bratislava city break with Christmas markets, 29th Nov-1st Dec 2018

    One of the most beautiful periods of the year in Bratislava is definitely during the last weeks of the year, when people celebrate the scents of Christmas on the street markets. Yes, we are talking about the traditional Christmas markets. They are so popular among locals and tourists. We will visit it in the evenings – with all the lights, the view is even more beautiful. You will see the UFO tower, St. Martin’s Cathedral as well as the Castle in their full beauty. A stage full of various cultural performances is a vital part of the Christmas market athmosphere. Musicians, folk dancers and other talented artists perform on the stage to entertain the visitors History lures you to every corner of the capital. Over the years, Bratislava has served as a strategic base for everyone from the Celts to the Romans. But it truly flourished under the 18th-century reign of Queen Maria Theresa of the Habsburg dynasty, back when the city (then known as Pressburg) was the capital of Royal Hungary. Her patronage brought a golden age, when Bratislava transformed from a Gothic fortress into a Baroque confection beloved by socialites and celebrities – a six-year-old Mozart even performed in the Palffy Palace (now a gallery).

  • An Historic Walk with Historian Paul Sinclair: On the Margins of the City.

    pret a manger 1 Long Ln, Barbican, London EC1A 9HA

    £10.00

    A chance to explore the history of an area on the margins of the City of London that historically attracted those on the margins of society. Religious dissenters and actors abound in this walk on the edge. We’ll visit the Barbican and remnants of the Roman wall, then to see the site of the home of the woman set up to be the seventh wife of Henry VIII, hear of the man who didn’t go out for 40 years, Christopher Marlowe’s indiscretions, learn of other actors and performers from Tudor times and the origins of a box office. Great religious dissenters too in George Fox, founder of the Quakers and John Wesley and his chapel’s unlikely listed room. Find out why it was called Cripplegate and take in its medieval church. All this and lunch in an historic pub. The group is small, so we can get to know each other better, explore the history in more detail and for safety reasons, as larger groups can be quite problematic in the city.

  • City break in Sofia, capital of Bulgaria ( return flight from £ 36)

    Short break in Sofia, Bulgaria Bulgaria’s quirky capital combines Ottoman heritage with European influences. Sofia’s history is as long and colourful as you’d expect from a capital on the frontier between Europe and Asia. The city has spent most of the past 2,000 years under occupation by various empires: first settled by Thracians in the eighth century BC, the area has since seen Romans, Byzantines, Ottomans and Communists all leave their marks. In 2007 Bulgaria joined the EU and Sofia got a bit of a facelift. Not that this is immediately obvious. Like many former Soviet cities, Sofia is a touch unprepossessing when you first arrive, its compact heart encircled by a busy ring road. However, within that, there is a silver lining. On its outside, neo-Byzantine gilt-and-green domes pile towards the heavens; inside its cavernous core, frescoes glare down from the walls. Christianity may have left the most outwardly glitzy architectural legacy on Sofia, but the city’s history as a melting pot of cultures and faiths has also left fascinating traces. Sofia is a very walkable capital, and feels cosier than its population of 1.25 million would suggest. On this tour we will discover the heart of the city, at Sveta Nedelya Church. Head north past the gigantic golden statue of St Sofia to the Banya Bashi Mosque, Sofia Synagogue, Market Hall and the Public Mineral Baths, which are clustered together north of the Largo, an elongated plaza flanked by domineering Communist-era buildings. Itinerary: Our hotel is situated in a quiet street just off the main Vitosha Boulevard and a 5-minute walk away from the NDK Convention Centre, Hotel Niky offers comfortable accommodation with light décor and seating areas. Day 1: Arrival in the hotel at around 1.00 pm Guided walking tour around Sofia city centre Dinner with the group (optional) Day 2: Breakfast Fun day out with the group exploring the city and more sightseeing Optional day trip to Rila Monastery- UNESCO Dinner in a traditional restaurant (optional) Day 3: Breakfast Free time for shopping, sightseeing and much more Lunch with the group Transfer to the airport at around 5.00 pm The package £ 280 for a shared double/twin room: - 2 nights in Sofia Hotel, 3-star hotel, central location - 2 Breakfasts - Transport from/to Sofia airport - 2 day walks in Sofia (sightseeing) - Group leader - Social event with the group, before flying to Sofia - Compliance with Travel Package Regulations and financial protection 1992 Doesn't include: - Flight London to Sofia morning flight and Sofia to London airport evening flight (around £ 50 return) - Personal expenses - Upgrade to a double room for single use £ 40 - Travel insurance In conjunction with other meetup group.
