Iskalci zaposlitve, določeni v španskem baru, morajo biti lepi in samski

Španski bar obtožujejo seksizma in diskriminacije, potem ko je objavil oglas za iskanje lepe barmenke, ki ni imela fanta.

Da bi postali dober natakar, obstaja veliko spretnosti, vendar nekateri bari vedno znova trpijo zaradi oglaševanja ženskih natakarjev, ki nimajo nič skupnega s pripravo in postrežbo pijač. Nedolgo nazaj je španski bar sprožil veliko jeze po objavi oglasa za žensko natakarko, v katerem je pisalo, da ima "velike prsi". Zdaj popolnoma drugačen španski bar vzame veliko toplote za objavo oglasa za zaposlitev lepih žensk s čudovitim telesom, ki so bile tudi samske.

Po poročanju The Local je bar Richard New Look na plaži v Benidormu v vzhodni Španiji, pred kratkim pa je iskal nekaj novih zaposlenih. Tako je bar objavil oglas na Facebooku in Instagramu.

"Iščemo dekleta, stara 18 let, lepa in dobre postave, z veliko izkušnjami pri pripravi pijač in z ljudmi," je bilo zapisano v oglasu. "Odgovoren in samski. Ne želimo, da bi fantje, ki so bolni od ljubosumja, viseli ob 5. uri zjutraj in čakali, da vas odpeljejo domov, še manj pa v bar, ki vas poskuša obvladati. To so preprosti in enostavni pogoji in če vam niso všeč, ne izgubljajte časa pri prijavi na delo. Obvezno je nositi pete ali platforme. "

Veliko ljudi je bil oglas užaljen in se jim je zdelo čudno in neprimerno, da bi lokal posebej dal oglas za zaposlene, ki niso imeli fantov. Zamisel, da bi morala ženska skozi celo izmeno nositi tudi visoke pete na platformah, medtem ko stoji za šankom, je prav tako sprožila nekaj vprašanj. Strežniki in natakarji veliko časa preživijo na nogah in ob prenašanju pijač, marsikomu pa se zdijo pete ali ploščadi zelo neprijetni za dejansko opravljanje dela.

Vodja lokala Julio Granado je kasneje oglas odstranil, potem ko so ga komentatorji na Facebooku označili za "seksističnega prašiča", vendar se je vztrajal pri zahtevah za delo, češ da so visoke pete približno dosegljive preko palice in da je bar določil samski zaposleni, ker niso želeli, da bi prišli ljubosumni fantje in se začeli spore.

Načrt kratkega odmora: Budimpešta

Budimpešta, glavno mesto Madžarske, je združitev mest Buda in Pešta, ki ležita na obeh straneh reke Donave. Mesto, znano kot "srce Evrope", je bilo razglašeno za "najboljšo evropsko destinacijo leta 2019". To ni presenetljivo, če upoštevate fascinantno kulturno, versko in vojaško zgodovino, prikazano skozi znamenite znamenitosti, spomenike, trge in katedrale.

Obiskal sem jo med potovanjem v žgočem poletju 2019. Trije dnevi so dali dovolj časa za raziskovanje celotnega mesta, zaradi česar je Budimpešta odlična destinacija za kratke in poceni počitnice.

Kje ostati

Zaradi majhnega proračuna smo se odločili, da ostanemo v hostlih. Čeprav vsi ne skodijo čaja (zlasti zaradi priljubljenosti poceni letalskih prevoznikov), so hostli odlično družabno okolje. So odličen kraj za spoznavanje številnih podobno mislečih ljudi z vsega sveta, ki delijo zgodbe o svojih potovanjih.

Bival sem v hostlu Shantee house, ki ima sproščen boemski občutek, ki se nahaja zahodno od reke v Budimu. Namenjena je velikim skupinam ali samskim potnikom s skupnimi spalnicami ali zasebnimi sobami. Na vrtu je tudi prostor za kampiranje za lastni šotor ali jurto, ki jo lahko najamete in sprejme do 6 oseb. Lahko se celo odločite za spanje v viseči mreži!

“ Tako kot večina evropskih mest ima tudi Budimpešta odlično nočno življenje ”

V notranjosti hostel ponuja skupen bivalni prostor in kuhinjo, ki jo lahko uporabite za kuhanje. Lahko sedite in zajtrkujete na balkonu s pogledom na fontane na mirnem zen vrtu. Še več, cene se začnejo od samo 3500 HUF na noč, kar je nekaj manj kot 9 £!

Naš prvi dan je minil v raziskovanju mesta in obisku znamenitih znamenitosti. Naš hostel se je nahajal v bližini citadele, zgrajene po madžarski revoluciji leta 1948, ki stoji na hribu Gellért. Dolg sprehod v hrib, vendar ste nagrajeni z neverjetnim razgledom na reko in odlično priložnost za nekaj fotografij.

“ Na prelomu stoletja so se ljudje odločili, da bodo velike 'ruševine' spremenili v trendovsko mesto za bare in klube ”

V citadeli je tudi kip svobode. Ta bronasti spomenik spominja na življenje tistih, ki so se borili za neodvisnost, in spomin na osvoboditev Sovjetske zveze med drugo svetovno vojno. Od trdnjave je kratek sprehod po reki do gradu Buda, ki je obdan s čudovitimi spomeniki in ima dva muzeja. S te višine se vam odpre čudovit pogled čez Donavo na stavbo madžarskega parlamenta in njeno veličastno gotsko arhitekturo.

Tako kot večina evropskih mest ima tudi Budimpešta odlično nočno življenje. Po dnevu ogledov smo se odpravili raziskovat palice. Odličen začetek je stara judovska četrt, kjer si lahko ogledate znamenite ruševine, najbolj znana je Szimpla Kert. Po drugi svetovni vojni in holokavstu so te zapuščene zgradbe desetletja puščale. Na prelomu stoletja so se ljudje odločili, da velike 'ruševine' spremenijo v trendovsko mesto za bare in klube. Prazne strukture so bile idealen kraj za gostovanje velikih skupin ljudi.

“Mreža jam nas je odkupila nekaj kilometrov od mesta, kjer smo začeli ”

Stavbe ostajajo odtrgane do golih temeljev z razstavljeno elektriko, cevmi in napeljavami. Sobe so prepredene z eklektičnim pohištvom, združenim skupaj, da ustvarijo domiselne umetniške stole, nameščene na stropu, starinske avtomobile in disko kroglice, ki dajejo popolnoma edinstveno doživetje.

Za začetek drugega dne smo se rezervirali za jamarski ogled. Mnogim neznano je celotno mesto zgrajeno nad labirintom prehodov. Apnenčaste jame je ustvarila vroča voda globoko pod zemljo, ista voda, ki ogreva znamenita termalna kopališča! Jame so napolnjene z grozdi kalcitnih usedlin, znanih kot jamske pokovke, po katerih se morate premikati, medtem ko stalaktiti in stalagmiti naredijo bleščeč spektakel. Mreža jam nas je odkupila nekaj kilometrov od tam, kjer smo začeli, po ozkem stopnišču, ki vodi na zaraščen vrt s pogledom na mesto, visok 215 metrov.

“Na našem seznamu žlic smo obiskali terme, ki so vredne insta ”

Popoldne smo se odločili, da se odpravimo proti Pešti. Med potovanjem po Margaretinem mostu smo odkrili otok, na katerem je glasbeni vodnjak, kjer si lahko potopite noge med uživanjem v sladoledu. Pojdite po otoku in se sprehodite po rožnem vrtu v bližini, kjer lahko kupite sladkarije na palici, večji od glave! Majhen živalski vrt se razteza ob bregu reke in lahko vstopite v ograde in nahranite koze!

Zadnji dan smo se odpravili še naprej do Pešte. Na našem seznamu žlic smo obiskali terme, vredne insta. Budimpešta ima vrsto termalnih kopeli, najbolj znana pa je Széchenyi, ki je največje naravno termalno vrelišče v Evropi! Za majhno plačilo se lahko sprostite ob bazenih (skupaj jih je 18!) Ali pa se sprostite v savnah in parnih sobah.

“ Mesto ima svojo podzemno podzemno železnico, ki poenostavi prevoz po mestu ”

Zdravilišče Széchenyi je nasproti nedavno zgrajenega gradu Vajdahunyad, še enega prikaza razkošne madžarske arhitekture, kjer se lahko s pedalinom odpravite na čudovito okoliško jezero. Jezero se nahaja v mestnem parku, tako da lahko poleti uživate v zelenih površinah in senci dreves. Pozimi pa se jezero spremeni v čudovito drsališče! Prav tako gosti obilo božičnih tržnic, kjer lahko uživate v tradicionalni madžarski dimniški torti.

Tako kot Nottingham ima tudi Budimpešta odlično storitev tramvaja, čeprav zna biti precej prenatrpana. Druga možnost je, da ima mesto lastno podzemno podzemno železnico, ki poenostavi prevoz po mestu in ni tako zaposleno kot londonsko podzemno! Toda najboljši način za raziskovanje mesta je res peš, zlasti v Budimu, starejšem delu mesta, kjer lahko raziščete ozke uličice.

“V judovski četrti je množica uličnih tržnic, kjer si lahko privoščite lahka kosila za uživanje na živahnih ulicah ”

Kraji za prehranjevanje

Golažna juha je najbolj tradicionalni madžarski obrok in bi morala biti del vaše budimpeštanske izkušnje. Jed spominja na mesno enolončnico, tradicionalno goveje meso, napolnjeno z veliko začimbami, zaradi česar je popoln tolažnik za zimo.

Peto okrožje je najboljše mesto za doživetje lokalne kuhinje. Na splošno, tako kot večina celinske Evrope, Madžari uživajo v izboru mesa in sirov s kruhom. Vendar pa je v judovski četrti množica uličnih trgov, kjer si lahko privoščite lahka kosila za uživanje na živahnih ulicah. Za bolj eksotično doživetje je v centru mesta živalska kavarna!

Na prelomu stoletja so se ljudje odločili, da velike 'ruševine' spremenijo v trendovsko mesto za bare in klube. Prazne strukture so bile idealen kraj za gostovanje velikih skupin ljudi.

“Mreža jam nas je odkupila nekaj kilometrov od mesta, kjer smo začeli ”

Stavbe ostajajo odtrgane do golih temeljev z razstavljeno elektriko, cevmi in napeljavami. Sobe so prepredene z eklektičnim pohištvom, ki je združeno, da ustvarijo domiselne umetniške stole, nameščene na stropu, starinske avtomobile in disko kroglice, ki dajejo popolnoma edinstveno doživetje.

Za začetek drugega dne smo se rezervirali za jamarski ogled. Mnogim neznano je celotno mesto zgrajeno nad labirintom prehodov. Apnenčaste jame je ustvarila vroča voda globoko pod zemljo, ista voda, ki ogreva znamenita termalna kopališča! Jame so napolnjene s kopicami kalcitnih usedlin, znanih kot jamske pokovke, po katerih se morate premikati, medtem ko stalaktiti in stalagmiti naredijo bleščeč spektakel. Mreža jam nas je odkupila nekaj kilometrov od tam, kjer smo začeli, po ozkem stopnišču, ki vodi na zaraščen vrt s pogledom na mesto, visok 215 metrov.

“Na našem seznamu žlic smo obiskali terme, ki so vredne insta ”

Popoldne smo se odločili, da se odpravimo proti Pešti. Med potovanjem po Margaretinem mostu smo odkrili otok, na katerem je glasbeni vodnjak, kjer si lahko potopite noge med uživanjem v sladoledu. Pojdite po otoku in se sprehodite po rožnem vrtu v bližini, kjer lahko kupite sladkarije na palici, večji od glave! Majhen živalski vrt se razteza ob bregu reke in lahko vstopite v ograde in nahranite koze!

Zadnji dan smo se odpravili še naprej do Pešte. Na našem seznamu žlic smo obiskali terme, vredne insta. Budimpešta ima vrsto termalnih kopeli, najbolj znana pa je Széchenyi, ki je največje naravno termalno vrelišče v Evropi! Za majhno plačilo se lahko sprostite ob bazenih (skupaj jih je 18!) Ali pa se sprostite v savnah in parnih sobah.

“ Mesto ima svojo podzemno podzemno železnico, ki poenostavi prevoz po mestu ”

Zdravilišče Széchenyi je nasproti nedavno zgrajenega gradu Vajdahunyad, še enega prikaza razkošne madžarske arhitekture, kjer se lahko s pedalinom odpravite na čudovito okoliško jezero. Jezero se nahaja v mestnem parku, tako da lahko poleti uživate v zelenih površinah in senci dreves. Pozimi pa se jezero spremeni v čudovito drsališče! Prav tako gosti obilo božičnih tržnic, kjer lahko uživate v tradicionalni madžarski dimniški torti.

Tako kot Nottingham ima tudi Budimpešta odlično storitev tramvaja, čeprav zna biti precej prenatrpana. Druga možnost je, da ima mesto lastno podzemno podzemno železnico, ki poenostavi prevoz po mestu in ni tako zaposleno kot londonsko podzemno! Toda najboljši način za raziskovanje mesta je res peš, zlasti v Budimu, starejšem delu mesta, kjer lahko raziščete ozke uličice.

“V judovski četrti je množica uličnih tržnic, kjer si lahko privoščite lahka kosila za uživanje na živahnih ulicah ”

Kraji za prehranjevanje

Golažna juha je najbolj tradicionalni madžarski obrok in bi morala biti del vaše budimpeštanske izkušnje. Jed spominja na mesno enolončnico, tradicionalno goveje meso, napolnjeno z veliko začimbami, zaradi česar je popoln tolažnik za zimo.

Peto okrožje je najboljše mesto za doživetje lokalne kuhinje. Na splošno, tako kot večina celinske Evrope, Madžari uživajo v izboru mesa in sirov s kruhom. Vendar pa je v judovski četrti množica uličnih trgov, kjer si lahko privoščite lahka kosila za uživanje na živahnih ulicah. Za bolj eksotično doživetje je v centru mesta živalska kavarna!


Načrt kratkega odmora: Budimpešta

Budimpešta, glavno mesto Madžarske, je združitev mest Buda in Pešta, ki ležita na obeh straneh reke Donave. Mesto, znano kot "srce Evrope", je bilo razglašeno za "najboljšo evropsko destinacijo leta 2019". To ni presenetljivo, če upoštevate fascinantno kulturno, versko in vojaško zgodovino, prikazano skozi znamenite znamenitosti, spomenike, trge in katedrale.

Obiskal sem jo med potovanjem v žgočem poletju 2019. Trije dnevi so dali dovolj časa za raziskovanje celotnega mesta, zaradi česar je Budimpešta odlična destinacija za kratke in poceni počitnice.

Kje ostati

Zaradi majhnega proračuna smo se odločili, da ostanemo v hostlih. Čeprav vsi ne skodijo čaja (zlasti zaradi priljubljenosti poceni letalskih prevoznikov), so hostli odlično družabno okolje. So odličen kraj za spoznavanje številnih podobno mislečih ljudi z vsega sveta, ki delijo zgodbe o svojih potovanjih.

Bival sem v hostlu Shantee house, ki ima sproščen boemski občutek, ki se nahaja zahodno od reke v Budimu. Namenjena je velikim skupinam ali samskim potnikom s skupnimi spalnicami ali zasebnimi sobami. Na vrtu je tudi prostor za kampiranje za lastni šotor ali jurto, ki jo lahko najamete in sprejme do 6 oseb. Lahko se celo odločite za spanje v viseči mreži!

“Like most European cities, Budapest has a great nightlife”

Inside, the hostel offers a shared living space and kitchen area you can use to cook. You can sit and eat breakfast at the balcony, overlooking the fountains in the peaceful zen garden. What’s more, prices start from only 3500 HUF a night which equates to just under £9!

Our first day was spent exploring the city and visiting the famous landmarks. Our hostel was located close to the citadel, built after the Hungarian revolution of 1948, which stands upon Gellért Hill. It’s a long walk up the hill but you’re rewarded with amazing views across the river and a perfect opportunity for some photos.

“At the turn of the century, people decided to transform the large ‘ruins’ into a trendy spot for bars and clubs”

The citadel is also home to the liberty statue. This bronze memorial commemorates the lives of those who fought for independence and marks remembrance of soviet liberation during the second World War. From the citadel, it’s a short walk up the river to Buda castle which is surrounded by beautiful monuments and has two museums. From this height you get a great view across the Danube of the Hungarian parliament building and its magnificent gothic architecture.

Like most European cities, Budapest has a great nightlife. After our day of sight-seeing we headed out to explore the bars. A great place to start is the old Jewish quarter, to check out the famous ruin bars, the most renowned being Szimpla Kert. After the second World War and the holocaust, these abandoned buildings lay desolate for decades. At the turn of the century, people decided to transform the large ‘ruins’ into a trendy spot for bars and clubs. The empty structures made the perfect place to host large groups of people.

“The network of caves bought us out several kilometres from where we began”

The buildings remain stripped back to the bare foundations with electrics, pipes and wiring all on display. Rooms are crammed with eclectic furniture rammed together to create a quirky art installation chairs hanging from the ceiling, antique cars, and disco balls make for a completely unique experience.

To kick off our second day we’d booked in for a caving tour. Unknown to many, the entire city is built over a labyrinth of passages. The limestone caves were created by hot water from deep underground, the same water that heats the famous thermal spas! The caves are filled with clusters of calcite deposits known as cave popcorn that you have to manoeuvre around, while stalactites and stalagmites make a glittering spectacle. The network of caves bought us out several kilometres from where we began, up a narrow stairway that leads to an overgrown garden overlooking the city, 215 metres high.

“It was on our bucket-list to visit the insta-worthy thermal spa”

In the afternoon we decided to head over to Pest. Travelling across Margaret bridge we discovered an island upon which there’s a musical fountain where you can dip your feet while enjoying an ice-cream. Wander across the island to take a walk through the rose garden nearby you can purchase candyfloss on a stick bigger than your head! A small petting zoo lines the bank of the river and you can enter the enclosures and feed the goats!

On our final day we ventured further into Pest. It was on our bucket-list to visit the insta-worthy thermal spa. Budapest has an array of thermal baths, the most famous being the Széchenyi which is the largest natural hot-spring spa in Europe! For a small fee you can lounge alongside the pools (there are 18 in total!) or relax inside in the saunas and steam rooms.

“The city has its own underground metro service which makes transport across the city simple”

Széchenyi spa is opposite the more recently built Vajdahunyad castle, another display of lavish Hungarian architecture, where you can take a pedalo out onto the gorgeous surrounding lake. The lake is located within the city park, so you can enjoy the green space and shade of the trees in summer. In the winter however, the lake is transformed into a beautiful ice rink! It also hosts an abundance of Christmas markets where you can enjoy a traditional Hungarian chimney cake.

Like Nottingham, Budapest has an excellent tram service, although it can get quite overcrowded. Alternatively, the city has its own underground metro service which makes transport across the city simple, and it’s nowhere near as busy as the London underground! But the best way to explore the city is really by foot especially in Buda, the older part of town, where you can explore the narrow alleyways.

“There is a host of street markets in the Jewish quarter where you can pick up a light lunch to enjoy in the jostling streets”

Places to eat

Goulash soup is the most traditional Hungarian meal and should be part of your Budapest experience. The dish resembles a meat stew, traditionally beef, filled with lots of spices making it the perfect winter comforter.

The fifth district is the best place to experience the local cuisine. Generally, like much of continental Europe, Hungarians enjoy selections of meats and cheeses with bread. However, there is a host of street markets in the Jewish quarter where you can pick up a light lunch to enjoy in the jostling streets. For a more exotic experience, there is a zoo café in the city centre!


Short Break Itinerary: Budapest

Budapest, capital of Hungary, is the unification of the cities Buda and Pest which lie either side of the river Danube. Known as ‘the heart of Europe,’ the city was voted the ‘Best European Destination of 2019’. This isn’t surprising when you consider the fascinating cultural, religious and military history, displayed through the famous landmarks, memorials, squares and cathedrals.

I visited while interrailing in the scorching summer of 2019. Three days gave enough time to explore the entire city, making Budapest a great destination for a short and cheap holiday.

Where to stay

Due to a tight budget we decided to stay in hostels. Although not everyone’s cup of tea (especially with the popularity of low-cost airbnbs), hostels are great social environments. They’re a great place to meet many like-minded people from all over the world sharing stories of their travels.

I stayed at a hostel called Shantee house which has a relaxed bohemian feel, located west of the river in Buda. It caters for large groups or single travellers, with dormitories or private rooms. There is also camping space in the garden for your own tent or a yurt you can rent, sleeping up to 6 people. You can even choose to sleep in a hammock!

Travelling across Margaret bridge we discovered an island upon which there’s a musical fountain where you can dip your feet while enjoying an ice-cream. Wander across the island to take a walk through the rose garden nearby you can purchase candyfloss on a stick bigger than your head! A small petting zoo lines the bank of the river and you can enter the enclosures and feed the goats!

On our final day we ventured further into Pest. It was on our bucket-list to visit the insta-worthy thermal spa. Budapest has an array of thermal baths, the most famous being the Széchenyi which is the largest natural hot-spring spa in Europe! For a small fee you can lounge alongside the pools (there are 18 in total!) or relax inside in the saunas and steam rooms.

“The city has its own underground metro service which makes transport across the city simple”

Széchenyi spa is opposite the more recently built Vajdahunyad castle, another display of lavish Hungarian architecture, where you can take a pedalo out onto the gorgeous surrounding lake. The lake is located within the city park, so you can enjoy the green space and shade of the trees in summer. In the winter however, the lake is transformed into a beautiful ice rink! It also hosts an abundance of Christmas markets where you can enjoy a traditional Hungarian chimney cake.

Like Nottingham, Budapest has an excellent tram service, although it can get quite overcrowded. Alternatively, the city has its own underground metro service which makes transport across the city simple, and it’s nowhere near as busy as the London underground! But the best way to explore the city is really by foot especially in Buda, the older part of town, where you can explore the narrow alleyways.

Places to eat

Goulash soup is the most traditional Hungarian meal and should be part of your Budapest experience. The dish resembles a meat stew, traditionally beef, filled with lots of spices making it the perfect winter comforter.

The fifth district is the best place to experience the local cuisine. Generally, like much of continental Europe, Hungarians enjoy selections of meats and cheeses with bread. However, there is a host of street markets in the Jewish quarter where you can pick up a light lunch to enjoy in the jostling streets. For a more exotic experience, there is a zoo café in the city centre!


Short Break Itinerary: Budapest

Budapest, capital of Hungary, is the unification of the cities Buda and Pest which lie either side of the river Danube. Known as ‘the heart of Europe,’ the city was voted the ‘Best European Destination of 2019’. This isn’t surprising when you consider the fascinating cultural, religious and military history, displayed through the famous landmarks, memorials, squares and cathedrals.

I visited while interrailing in the scorching summer of 2019. Three days gave enough time to explore the entire city, making Budapest a great destination for a short and cheap holiday.

Where to stay

Due to a tight budget we decided to stay in hostels. Although not everyone’s cup of tea (especially with the popularity of low-cost airbnbs), hostels are great social environments. They’re a great place to meet many like-minded people from all over the world sharing stories of their travels.

I stayed at a hostel called Shantee house which has a relaxed bohemian feel, located west of the river in Buda. It caters for large groups or single travellers, with dormitories or private rooms. There is also camping space in the garden for your own tent or a yurt you can rent, sleeping up to 6 people. You can even choose to sleep in a hammock!

“Like most European cities, Budapest has a great nightlife”

Inside, the hostel offers a shared living space and kitchen area you can use to cook. You can sit and eat breakfast at the balcony, overlooking the fountains in the peaceful zen garden. What’s more, prices start from only 3500 HUF a night which equates to just under £9!

Our first day was spent exploring the city and visiting the famous landmarks. Our hostel was located close to the citadel, built after the Hungarian revolution of 1948, which stands upon Gellért Hill. It’s a long walk up the hill but you’re rewarded with amazing views across the river and a perfect opportunity for some photos.

“At the turn of the century, people decided to transform the large ‘ruins’ into a trendy spot for bars and clubs”

The citadel is also home to the liberty statue. This bronze memorial commemorates the lives of those who fought for independence and marks remembrance of soviet liberation during the second World War. From the citadel, it’s a short walk up the river to Buda castle which is surrounded by beautiful monuments and has two museums. From this height you get a great view across the Danube of the Hungarian parliament building and its magnificent gothic architecture.

Like most European cities, Budapest has a great nightlife. After our day of sight-seeing we headed out to explore the bars. A great place to start is the old Jewish quarter, to check out the famous ruin bars, the most renowned being Szimpla Kert. After the second World War and the holocaust, these abandoned buildings lay desolate for decades. At the turn of the century, people decided to transform the large ‘ruins’ into a trendy spot for bars and clubs. The empty structures made the perfect place to host large groups of people.

“The network of caves bought us out several kilometres from where we began”

The buildings remain stripped back to the bare foundations with electrics, pipes and wiring all on display. Rooms are crammed with eclectic furniture rammed together to create a quirky art installation chairs hanging from the ceiling, antique cars, and disco balls make for a completely unique experience.

To kick off our second day we’d booked in for a caving tour. Unknown to many, the entire city is built over a labyrinth of passages. The limestone caves were created by hot water from deep underground, the same water that heats the famous thermal spas! The caves are filled with clusters of calcite deposits known as cave popcorn that you have to manoeuvre around, while stalactites and stalagmites make a glittering spectacle. The network of caves bought us out several kilometres from where we began, up a narrow stairway that leads to an overgrown garden overlooking the city, 215 metres high.
