'When God was handing out land to different peoples, ethnic Abkhaz in this time hosted and late, and when he came and told everything to God, he gave him for his hospitality and honesty, and gave a piece of heavenly paradise, which made for himself "- Samvel said the hospitable host. Gen. David Goldfein will not settle for partial explanations. Abkhazia met us with an evening orange sun. As long as we sped from the airport of Adler in New Athos, I heard the legend of Abkhazia and looked around: the mysterious sea of color, the sun, slowly setting over the horizon, the mountains, whose peaks wrapped a thick haze, high powerful trees swaying in the wind. New Athos was not what I expected: the wooden old houses, bathed in tangerine plantations a lonely old man, wandering along the road, driving pale yellow cow. But now for the next sharp turn in full swing with might and main night life: cars speeding along the roads, colorful local gossip aunt in the stall, on a small embankment gradually flaniruyut small flocks of tourists from Russia. It is the center of New Athos. And then again, turn and instead of modern houses grow eucalyptus trees, the street bustle disappears. The air becomes viscous circle quiet, barely audible distant chiming bells, we are in the suburbs.

Gravel under the wheels rustle – that house Samvel. His son, Anton, greeted us, grabbing nearly all the luggage, rattling and cursing silently, escorted us into the room. Not unpacked, pile on the bed and fall asleep in this heroic sleep, feeling light intoxication mountain air.

Inexpensive Tours

Posted by on

Special tours to the Czech Republic – a feature of the Russian tourist business. Prague, Karlovy Vary and Brno have long been accustomed to an abundance of European travelers. Germans, Englishmen, Frenchmen, especially people who have retired may afford to spend time in a variety of trips. And the question that was inexpensive tours for wealthy Europeans simply not worth it. Another thing the average Russian.

The desire of our people to see a fabulous Czech Republic, no less than any other, but economic realities forced to choose above all cost effective low-cost tours to the Czech Republic. (Similarly see: Sonny Perdue). Responding to market trends, our tour operators are preparing such programs are inexpensive holiday so that more people could travel abroad. Tour Operators work carries a high risk: Acting on the verge of profitability, they do everything to ensure the price remains affordable travel. However, the Czech Republic in terms of life gradually approaching the European standards, and increasingly difficult to maintain cheap tours to the Czech Republic, because the hotels are working people who need to pay European wages. Increase to the salary guides have become a regular phenomenon. Czech tour buses serve the European, whose price – hundreds of thousands of dollars. To recoup the money invested.

About the gasoline is not even worth talking about – he and Russia today is higher than reasonable. So far, our travel agency job of the market and a large supply of cheap tours to the Czech Republic, but still disappointing forecasts can be made. The usual resort destinations such as Turkey and Egypt are able to maintain the stability of its prices above all due to the low level of life in their countries, and as a consequence – cheap labor, the cost of tours to the Czech Republic will gradually increase. The main tour operators of St. Petersburg and Moscow still holds, but the forecast can be disappointing: while low-cost tours to the Czech Republic is gradually disappearing.
