Easter traditions in Europe

Easter traditions in Europe are as diverse as the countries on the Old Continent themselves. From an egg hunt in England, decorating Easter trees in Germany, Austria or the Netherlands, colouring eggs in central and eastern Europe to numerous religious processions in Spain or Italy. They represent all the treasure of European culture in such a lovely way.

Dutch Golden Age Heritage Sites in the Netherlands

Dutch Golden Age heritage sites are something you can not miss while in the Netherlands. The 17th century was the most glorious time for that country. Dutch ships were sailing worldwide and were bringing exotic and expensive goods back to the Netherlands. Society of wealthy middle-class free people started to develop, which led to establishing the only republic in Europe at that time. A good economy led to the flourishing of art and architecture. Which left the Netherlands today with numerous beautiful Dutch Golden Age heritage sites.

I present to you today Croatian artist and illustrator Maja Tomljanović, whose work I recently discovered and got so impressed with.
I’m always on the lookout for some interesting artists and illustrators. And especially the ones whose work is inspired by travel and different destinations. Well, Maja’s work ticked all those boxes. So I was thrilled when she agreed to have a conversation with me and give an interview for Culture Tourist readers.

Locations linked to Vincent Van Gogh in Arles

After living in Paris for two years, Vincent van Gogh moved to the very south of France, in his search for the light and the brighter colours. He has spent a year there and that’s where he has found his own unique style. It’s also where some of his most famous paintings were created. There are many locations related to life and work of Van Gogh in Arles, that could still be seen today. I’ve spent two days there and have looked for some of them.
