Enjoy a 3 night stay immersed in the Classic European tradition in the heart of Moscow. The Hotel Baltschug Kempinski offers luxurious, modern accommodations for both business and leisure travelers. Once home to famous 19th-century Russian artists who painted views of the Kremlin, Red Square, and St. Basil's Cathedral, Hotel Baltschug Kempinski now plays host to a steady stream of in-the-know globetrotters, executives, and dignitaries. Awake to breakfast in the Café Kranzler before heading out to see the sights. For lunch or dinner, feast on Russian fare at The Restaurant Baltschug. The Baltschug is also popular for events, meetings, and weddings. The multiple meeting rooms are gorgeous, and here staff go out of their way to assist with event planning and catering, and will happily take care of every detail. Besides work and business, it's a place for pampering. At the Baltschug Health Club and Beauty Center, you can also get a new haircut, pedicure, and massage - or do all three at once.

Advantages: Cheap great scenary, cheap Disadvantages: Corrupt, Uninspiring life
...In 2003 a friend of mine was living in Slovakia teaching - foolishly I agreed to visit in April.
I flew to Prague (perhaps I'll write about that later) and I took a coach 12 hours to Banska-Bystrica anyway. Now that Easyjet flies to Bratislava go that way. Never take a 12-hour coach.

Review of General: Slovakia
Advantages: Interesting place to visit because it's so different. Ultra Cheap Disadvantages: Not an awful lot to do. Language barriers
