The World’s 100 Most Epic Mountain Views

The World's 100 most epic mountain views by Russianblogger.me

Climbing mountains is in our DNA. The sport started all the way back in 1760 and has built a strong underground following around the world since that day. From the people who have ascended Everest “just because” all the way to the dedicated Yosemite climbers who avoided being found by park rangers most of their lives.

Even if you aren’t a climber, you can enjoy the spectacle that is a beautiful mountain view.  It’s a real treat to see some of Mother Nature’s most glorious natural formations.

While viewing this list of the world’s 100 most epic mountain views, you will feel like you are on a hot air balloon sailing around the globe discovering one breathtaking view after another.  Make sure to bring a jacket because it may get cold up there!

Hotels Cost During the 2018 World Cup in Russia

We are getting closer to the start of the 2018 World Cup in Russia, which is super exciting! Not long ago, the Russian government set a cap for the minimum and maximum rates of hotels during the 2018 World Cup. This should prevent hoteliers from hiking up the prices above the set limit for each of the 11 cities, that will host the 2018 World Cup.

I think it’s something important to know for those who are planning to go to Russia for the World Cup, so they can plan their budget accordingly. Let’s take a closer look and answer to the question “how much will hotels cost during the 2018 World Cup in Russia”.

Why Did Russia Annex Crimea?

Isn’t it crazy how fast time flies? It has already been two years since Russia invaded Crimea at the end of February of 2014, and a few weeks after that the Crimean’s voted to join Russia at the referendum. It was a very complicated move by the Russian President Vladimir Putin – no wonder it was followed by an extremely negative reaction from the Western countries. There are hundreds of different opinions about what happened in Crimea. I think they all have the right to life, because you can always look at situations from different sides and perspectives. Here in this post I would like to answer the question “why did Russia annex Crimea” and talk about the reasoning for Mr. Putin to make such a move, especially, when he knew that it will have a very negative impact on Russia’s relations with the West.
