Jerez de la Frontera – Sherry, horses and flamenco
The old town of Jerez de la Frontera with its fortress of Alcazár and the Church of San Dinonisio is considered part of Spain’s cultural heritage. The world-famous sherry carries the city’s name. Jerez is also renowned for the Carthusian horses that visitors are welcome to admire in the Royal Andalusian School of Equestrian Art. The city is also seen as one of the birthplaces of Flamenco. The expansive beaches hugging the Costa de la Luz are certainly worth a visit.
Jersey – Idyllic nature in the British Channel
The largest of the Channel Islands presents a heady blend of British and French influences. Nature enthusiasts are welcome to explore Jersey by bicycle or on foot. Perched up on the rugged cliffs, visitors enjoy the stunning view across the waters, rising and falling in the rhythm of the tides. Secluded in the Gulf of Saint Malo, the island has sandy beaches with ideal conditions for surfers and kiters.
Dubrovnik – Pearl of the Adriatic
Picturesque sandy beaches, breath-taking rocky coastlines, turquoise seas and sunshine almost all year round: Dubrovnik in Croatia is an unrivalled holiday paradise. Additionally, the lively old town – a fantastic place to amble and stroll to your heart’s delight – is brimming with historical buildings, Mediterranean flair and innumerable outstanding cafes, bars and restaurants. Holidaymakers can take a trip with the cable car to enjoy the magnificent view.
Split – 1700 years if history at your fingertips
Split, Croatia’s second largest city, sits proud on an Adriatic peninsula while gazing back over almost 1700 years of history. The heart of the old town, a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1979, is spread around the Palace of the Roman Emperor Diocletian, and today houses churches, residential buildings and businesses. The port makes Split an important transport hub, and numerous ferries set off from here for the islands located round about.
