We will begin our journey in the Sagrada Familia Church in Barcelona, designed by modernist architect Anthony Gaudi. Its construction began in 1882, and due to Gaudi's death and other events, such as the Spanish Civil War, it continues to this day and is expected to be completed in 2026. From here, we send you to the famous Eiffel Tower in Paris, in which direction will most of your journey be made towards it?
You have reached the 324-meter-high tower, which is one of the most prominent symbols of France. For about 40 years, from its opening to the public until the construction of the Chrysler Building in New York in 1930, the Eiffel Tower was the tallest structure in the world. Your next destination is the capital of a country that does not border France, which city is it?
You have arrived in the capital of the Czech Republic: "The City of Hundreds of Pointed Turrets," "The Golden City," "Mother of All Cities," and "The Heart of Europe." While the city of Prague itself has a fascinating history, the Czech Republic itself was established only in 1993 when the state of Czechoslovakia disintegrated. What direction do you need to go in order to reach the neighboring country of Slovakia, which was also "born" from this split?
You have successfully arrived in Slovakia, at the largest airport in the country, M.R. Stefanik Airport, also known as Bratislava Airport. A private jet is waiting to take you to your next destination. The pilot wants to take you to the largest island in Greece, but she forgot which island it is…
You said goodbye to your pilot in Crete, the largest in the Greek islands that is 252 km long and ranges in width from 12 to 60 km. Heraklion, the capital of the island, has an impressive fortress and you can also find the Knossos Antiquities Site here, which displays spectacular archeological remains from the Bronze Age. You don't have time to explore Crete in depth because you have to get on a boat that will take you to Malta. Which direction will take you most of the journey there?
You anchored safely off the coast of Malta, the small island nation located in the Mediterranean Sea, south of Sicily and north of Libya. This is your first stop and you have some time to rest, touring the cities of Sliema, Medina and the capital of Valletta. When you feel that you have exhausted the ancient architecture, beaches, entertainment venues and many attractions in Malta, you can move on.
After the Greek islands and Malta, you may want to change the atmosphere and see some mountains, so we will set off for the highest mountain in the world. It can be found at the border between these 2 countries...
You have reached the foot of Mount Everest on the Nepal-China border in the Himalayan mountain range, which passes through most of Nepal and reaches an altitude of 8,848 meters above sea level. The first successful documented immigration to its summit was in 1953, and was carried out by New Zealander Edmund Hillary and the Sherpa (a guide native to Nepal) Tenzing Norgay. You prefer to avoid such dangerous activities, so you decide to move on to a the country that was the first to give women the right to vote.
Welcome to New Zealand, or, as the native Maori called it: Aotearoa, The Land of the Long White Cloud. From here, we go to another island nation off the east coast of Africa. It has 26 million residents and is famous for its wild nature and birds.
Welcome to Madagascar, the 4th largest island in the world! This place is brimming with natural scenery and animals of many kinds. From here, we go to the biggest country in the world by land.
Welcome to Russia. 16,376,870 square kilometers of land make it the largest country in the world. It was officially established in 1991 due to the disintegration of the Soviet Union. A large part of the countries that were part of this alliance still border Russia, like our next destination, although it is thousands of miles away from Russia...
You arrived safely in Lithuania, the first country to officially leave the Soviet Union in 1990, although Soviet forces tried to suppress it until August 1991. The island castle, the Hill of Crosses, the impressive buildings in the capital Vilnius and the Korsio Neria National Park will help you pass the time pleasantly before we move on to our very last stop, which is a country that generates a third of its revenue from ONE man-made structure.
