Travel video about destination Praha in Czech Republic. Prague is called the city of 100 towers and the mother of all towns. #GlobalLearningAdventures
Prague is a golden city of a hundred towers, a gem on the Moldau and a young city with a long history.The most famous of all bridges across the Moldau is the Charles Bridge that connects the old town of Stare Mesto with the city district of Mala Strane below Castle Mountain. Old Town Square is the name of a picturesque square in the centre of the old town surrounded by houses and churches whose facades form a colourful blend of numerous architectural styles. Prague Castle originated from a Slavic settlement in the 9th century A.D. and it is the largest castle complex in the world. The front of the main building measures more than half a kilometre. The Royal Palace is the present living quarters of the country’s president. Nearly one third of its inner courtyard belongs to St. Veits Dom a wonderful Gothic cathedral whose construction took several centuries. A boat trip on the Moldau is an absolute must on any visit to Prague. Most of the excursion boats leave from Charles Bridge close to the Kampa Peninsula. The journey travels beneath a few of the city’s sixteen bridges and the view from the boat adds a totally different perspective to the sights experienced on the city’s streets. Everyone who visits this city falls in love with it and cannot help but be totally fascinated by its special ambience. Prague is a thing of beauty in the very heart of Europe! (Ref: Expoza Travel)

Peñiscola Castle is located on the highest point of the city. It was built by the Knights Templar on the remains of an old Moorish citadel. It was built with walls of carved stone. Most of the rooms had barrel vaults. It is a sober and solid construction. It was the residence of Benedict XIII, who turned it into a palace and papal library when he moved to Peñíscola in 1411.

Global Learning Adventures in Port Sagunto, Valencia, Spain. Blast Furnace Nº.2 is the only surviving blast furnace tower of the three that were in operation at the height of the steel industry’s activity in Puerto de Sagunto. The structure, which is 64 metres high, was built in 1922 and rebuilt in the 1960s. Operating at 1000 degrees centigrade, it was used to create the steel and iron that was employed in the large construction projects of the 20th-century, such as the building known as the “finca de hierro” in Valencia, the Windsor building in Madrid, the Telefonica building in Seville and the Seat factory in Barcelona. Following its restoration, it received the Europa Nostra 2012 (European Union Prize for Cultural Heritage) Award. Visitors to the furnace tower can discover how it worked and find out about the steel-making industry that gave rise to the Port of Sagunto. (http://www.valenciaturisme.org/en/municipio/sagunto)

Medellín wins global award for its commitment to sustainable mobility
Medellín draws the attention of the world for its development of multimodal public transport. What began in November 1995 with the opening of Metro, became a firm intention of moving towards an innovative mobility that includes marginalized populations, gathers other transport systems and advance to be a sustainable city.
That was how after Metrocables, the escalators in the commune 13, the BRT system (Metroplús), the tram Ayacucho and public bike system EnCicla arrived to the city.
According to the organizers of the Mobiprize Award, “it was key to have made a joint application between several entities, which was a sign of good articulated mobility between different systems.” Besides the integration through the Civica card, the technological advances in railways and the social impact they have had on citizens also influenced the decision.
In a ceremony in New Delhi on March, 2016, Medellín will be publicly rewarded. A video that was used to compete for this honour and commits more the city to continue taking steps towards sustainable mobility will be shown.
