germany part five - dachau concentration camp

Dear readers, I am terribly sorry, I've been quite busy for last two weeks so couldn't update my blog. And then my computer died... I don't have any access to my photos, fortunately I made some drafts beforehand, so I'll publish it now and hopefully by that time it will be repaired.
This post is continuation of my Germany trip (gosh, I'm publishing July photos on September, have to be quicker!). On one day we've visited Dachau Concentration Camp. I know this is not glamorous or fashion experience in any sense, but very deep and full of feelings. Wherever any members of your family suffered in concentration camps or not, this is an edifying and horrible history of the whole world.

Enter to the camp. "Working makes free".

On these places barracks for prisoners were. The farer the barrack was, the "worse" people lived there.

If you steped too close, you were dead.

The most horrible place in the whole camp.

Prisoners' beds.

For different churches were built there afterwards - Orthodoxal, Catholical, Protestant and Jewish.

In a Jewish church.

Scheme of "friend camps".

germany part four - munich

I've been in Munich once before, I love this city a lot! We've visited it twice during my stay there, once to visit New Pinakothek and once more when we've visited Dachau (this photos coming in a next post).


Old Pinakothek.

No photos from inside, but I loved it a lot! Our aim was to see Van Gogh and other impressionists, also we've seen wonderful English artists such as Constable and others.

Odeonsplatz closed for some concert.

Crowded Marienplatz.

A year later still under construction.

germany part three - nuremberg

Hello people! Sorry for little absence, I was quite busy last week moving to a new room in my dorm - moving my things, buying stuff & arranging repairs. When I will be done with decorating, I'll show you everything. Room is small, but I will live alone whilst before I shared a room with other girl, so everything is for the best.
Also I have bad news, my little niece who's even above one year old is in hospital. She has problems with stomach, when she appeared to feel bad paramedicals took her and she had a surgery, than one more yesterday. She will stay in hospital for three months and will have one more surgery later. Oh dear, she is so little and problems are so huge! My prays for her.

Coming to a topic of this post, this is part three of my Germany trip, now it is Nuremberg, where we went with a university excursion. Thу city is nice, clean and beautiful, we also visited Nazi museum and it was very interesting, I understood how little I actually know about the history of the beginning of Second World War and Hitler himself.

Ali was taking picture of my adidas wings sneakers, haha :)

I am sorry for almost no information, I do not remember names of all places we've visited there... I will try my best!

Very-very weird monument. I don't have better photos but it is actually a boat filled with this kind of creatures.

I believe every german city has a Marktplatz and a castle.

I am always fascinated with organs...

This looked like a very nice place, but the waiter we got and the food were frustrating :(

Nuremberg castle (I told you! :)


We got to see a contest of yellow bath ducks! I believe the owner of the winner got a car as a prize (anyone knows the name of this wonderful event?)


Reichsparteitagsgelaende (break your tongue!) is a museum opened in a building which was nazi but wasn't finished. I didn't know that Nuremberg was such an important part of all this, this building is one of a group - huge propaganda buildings killing the personality, amazing experience.
