The Archangelskoe estate

The Archangelskoe estate is located 20 km from Moscow in the heart of Russia. This ancient barony, was witness to many historical events from the ancient Russian Vyatichi and Ivan the Terrible, to Peter the Great and Catherine II. It was constructed in 1703 at the will of prince Galizyn and became famous thanks to it being the place of residence to the Yusupov family. The estate has been visited by a lot of prominent people, like Russian emperors and writers. Almost 100 years ago the state museum was situated here. But a long time before the museum was founded, its owners, Zinaida and Felix Yusupov, wrote in their will that if the Yusupov family were to eventually have no heir to the estate, the entire property with all fine arts, rarities and jewellery collections included, had to be given to the government to satisfy the aesthetic and scientific needs of the fatherland.

The rapid change in its infrastructure allowed it to change its main income source from fishing to tourism. It has, however, managed to retain its charm despite the construction boom. Its exceptional location between two intersecting sets of coatal mountains, have ensured that its beauty remain unaffected. Read more »

The Demise of the Digital Map?

They always say, that devices are not completely reliable but recently mobile phone users have been having various problems with certain apps. Google maps, Apple maps – the question is, is it not more practical to carry a map in the hand?

This debate started when many tourists and visitors headed to the city of Mildura, in Australia. Apple maps incorrectly directed users where the Australian city was; instead users ended up in a 1,900 square mile park which has a desert-like atmosphere with temperatures reaching as high as 46 degrees.
