“It’s Nowhere Else I’ve Been”: Readers’ Favorite Cities | city ​​trips Thu, 15 Sep 2022 12:44:00 +0000

Padua, Italy

Padua is full of fascinating sights. St. Anthony’s Basilica easily rivals St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, with a magnificent silver sarcophagus housing the saint’s body. The nearby botanical garden full of plants and flowers is a wonderful way to while away a few hours. In the morning, visit Piazza della Frutta and Piazza delle Erbe, where lively markets sell everything from strawberries to sneakers, or visit the Palazzo della Ragione with its impressive frescoes. At night, both squares turn into open-air bars and restaurants where you can taste the local cuisine. If you have time for a day trip, Verona and Venice are less than an hour away by train.

Bologna, Italy

When I picture Bologna, it’s always bathed in golden hourlight that makes its rust-red walls glow. But what lies beneath the surface is just as enchanting. Anyone who explores the small and idiosyncratic museums of the university will discover old backyards. Delving into hidden doors and arches leads to secrets – or sustenance. Music and discussion evenings in the main square. And there is the greeting. On my last trip, I watched locals having passionate discussions, taking turns on stools in Piazza Maggiore. Not trusting my Italian, I declined an invitation to contribute, but happily accepted the cherries that were shared among the crowd.

Lucca, Italy

Lucca, in Tuscany, has deep roots and many surprises: a Roman amphitheater turned piazza with cafes and shops; City walls were never breached in war, so you can now cycle around every 4 km. The city fascinates with every visit – from holm oaks on the Guinigi Tower to cartoon exhibitions. The music is varied – daily Puccini concerts in churches or international rock stars play on the squares or walls of the city. Its maze of medieval streets is reminiscent of the past, but it has the ability to change face, perhaps as a result of outwitting competing Italian medieval city-states to remain independent.

Melilla, Spain/North Africa

Melilla, the Spanish enclave on the north coast of Morocco, is a relic of Spain’s colonial past with a geographical character. Facing the Mediterranean Sea on one side and the Rif Mountains on the other, and surrounded by a formidable border fence, it is definitely multicultural, with Christian, Muslim, Jewish and Hindu communities living side by side with a large force of Spanish legionnaires. The cityscape is just as diverse: streets lined with small Moroccan houses give way to broad avenues lined with Art Deco wonders; It’s even home to Africa’s only true Gothic church. Strange really doesn’t come close.

Belgrade, Serbia

We have just returned from Belgrade – unlike any other European capital and an unexpected treat, from the flaking but charming Old Town between the Sava and Danube rivers to the New Town with an astounding array of futuristic modern architecture, including stunning examples of Concrete Brutalism. Wherever we went, people were always polite, uncomplicated and helpful. Public transport is ubiquitous and easy to use (who doesn’t love an hour and a half unlimited travel for 50p?), making it easy to explore the city and its funky attractions. Easily accessible by plane or train and a great base for exploring the Balkans if you have the time and energy.

Plovdiv, Bulgaria

Plovdiv is adorable. The beautiful Roman amphitheater has the backdrop of the snow-capped Rhodopes – we enjoyed an afternoon there, some friendly wedding photography that added to the romance. The manager of the Episcopal Basilica gave us a private tour of the acres of fabulous mosaics and everywhere the welcome was spontaneous and warm. We kept seeing trees and bushes adorned with red and white bracelets called “Martenitsa” – we learned why when another guard placed a pair on our wrists. Martenitsa brings luck, and Plovdiv certainly did that for us.

Cadiz, Spain

Visit Cadiz – Andalusia centers on a densely built, highly photogenic old town, reputedly one of the oldest settlements in Europe. It’s full of history, flamenco, gardens and bastions, towers and squares. Food quality is consistently high, from a plate in the Mercado to modern high-end restaurants, all with an emphasis on local produce. Outside the land gate lies the modern town with miles of Playa de la Victoria and a wide range of chiringuitos, tapas bars and seafood restaurants. Or catch a ferry across the bay to El Puerto de Santa Maria, the closest of the three Sherry Triangle cities, for wine tasting or a visit to the three-star Hotel Aponiente or its humbler sister restaurant.

England’s smallest town, Wells, with its Gothic cathedral, lies at the heart of this tiny metropolis whose clock is famous for its 24-hour astronomical dial, originally set for quarter hour jousting tournaments. Visit Vicars’ Close, said to be the oldest purely residential street in Europe, and admire the Deanery’s ancient herb garden. Walk through the historic destitute porch gates into Wells’ marketplace. And tour filming locations – the city has featured in many productions, including Hot Fuzz.

Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina

The most memorable city I visited was Sarajevo, the capital of Bosnia and Herzegovina and an incredibly beautiful, welcoming and culturally rich place that has so much more to offer than its tragic recent history. From the historic and fascinating bazaar – Baščaršija – that runs through the heart of the city to the beautiful mountains that surround it, there is so much to see and explore. In the street cafes we met many nice people who were happy to help us learn more about the hearty local cuisine and traditional Bosnian coffee. It’s not a city that seems to get much talked about, but it’s not like anywhere else I’ve been.

Tarragona, Spain

Tarragona is an hour’s drive or train south of Barcelona. As Barcelona’s poor cousin in reputation and wealth, you could be forgiven for thinking it doesn’t deserve our attention. But you would be wrong. Everything is on your doorstep and most of it within walking distance: beaches for those who need to get their tan on; an old quarter to spend the afternoon wandering amidst the amazing Roman ruins (arguably the best in Spain); and some cheap but exquisite bars and restaurants along the Rambla. We stayed at the beautiful Hotel Pigal in the heart of the city in a double room with balcony for £60 a night in July.

Alan Pardew appointed manager at new club – after less than 5 weeks at last job Wed, 14 Sep 2022 14:56:06 +0000

On Wednesday, June 1, 2022, CSKA Sofia announced that Alan Pardew is no longer a manager, less than five weeks after his appointment on a permanent basis.

After Alan Pardew took charge of team affairs (originally on a temporary basis) on April 15, they managed just one win in the last seven games of the season in all competitions.

Alan Pardew and the club split, with the former CSKA Sofia boss (see below) blaming a minority of the club’s fans.

CSKA Sofia Official Announcement – ​​June 1, 2022:

‘army men,

Alan Pardew will not lead the CSKA team in the new season. Over the past ten days, the mentor and the leadership of the army have held numerous discussions, and finally made the decision of the British specialist not to continue his work on the “army”. He explained his motives to the club’s website:

“First I would like to thank all true CSKA fans for their support and passion for the club. Grisha and Dani Ganchevi for their efforts to move the club forward under such challenges and circumstances.

It was a privilege for me to be part of this club and to serve it! Unfortunately, my time here is over! The events before and after the game against Botev (Plovdiv) were not acceptable for me, my assistant Alex Dyer, or our players. The reason no one gave an interview after the meeting was that we were all very outraged by the escalated situation.

Our players have chosen to only play out of loyalty and to protect the club. The small group of organized racist fans that tried to sabotage this game is not what I want to lead and represent the team. This is definitely not the right way in favor of CSKA, because such a club deserves much more.”

Pardev’s decision follows a section of CSKA Sofia supporters who attacked their own team’s black players with racial slurs, with four players being verbally abused and also pelted with bananas.

Now, on Wednesday (September 14), Alan Pardew is back as manager.

Greek club Aris reveal the news.

I smiled when I saw them calling Alan Pardew “legendary” in the official release.

Ari’s official announcement – ​​September 14, 2022:

PAE ARIS announces the start of its collaboration with coach Alan Scott Pardew, as his full name is.

Alan Pardew, born on July 18, 1961 in Wimbleton, England, has signed a one-year contract (with an option for a further year) with our club.

The legendary English manager’s coaching career began just before 2000 with Reading, with whom he managed promotion from the Championship to the Premier League.

In October 2003, the British coach signed with West Ham, with whom he again rose to the top flight and also reached the FA Cup final in the 2005/06 season.

After three years at West Ham, Pardew left in December 2006 and within days took charge of Charlton Athletic.

Charlton’s relegation was inevitable that year and Pardew stayed with the club for another two years, trying to win back promotion to the Premier League. In November 2008, Pardew and Charlton Athletic parted ways.

His next team was Southampton, who were playing in League One at the time. Alan Pardew stayed at Southampton for one season (2009-10) and celebrated winning the League Trophy at Wembley.

In the middle of the following year he made the big decision of taking a seat on the Newcastle bench. It was there that he enjoyed the best five years of his career (2010-2015) as his side played good football, won exit to Europe and he himself was named the Premier League’s best manager for the 2011-12 season.

It was Crystal Palace who ‘snapped’ him from Newcastle with a very good offer in January 2015 and Pardew’s start at his new club has been amazing.

In fact, under his leadership, Crystal Palace reached the historic FA Cup final in the 2015/16 season, where they eventually lost to Manchester United. In December 2016, Pardew said goodbye to Crystal Palace.

After a brief stint on the bench at West Brom in the 2017-2018 season, our team’s new manager tested his skills outside of England, spending a year at Dutch Eredivisie club The Hague (2019-20).

Alan Pardev’s last job before moving to Greece was in neighboring Bulgaria for CSKA Sofia, first as technical director and then as coach (2020-2022).

As of today, Alan Scott Pardew is – and officially – part of the ARIS family!

* Alexander Constantine Dyer will become a direct partner of our team’s new coach, while Hristo Zahariev will take on analyst duties.
