Semarang Old Town (T)

Stanislaw Warwas Poland - 19-Nov-18

Semarang Old Town (T)

Visited November 2018. Semarang would be a very valuable addition to the WH list. The city is located on the north of central Java and is easily accessible from different places on the island. Although the old town (Kota Lama) looks a bit ruined and some buildings are in a very bad condition, you can find there a kind of atmosphere that makes you want to stay longer. Just walk around, you’ll discover what makes this city special – some old Dutch architecture, small streets with galleries and shops, a bit forgotten Chinatown… Not to miss old churches, Chinese temples and, a bit further from the center, very big Lawan Sewu that used to be the headquarters of Indonesian railways and colorful Kampung Pelangi

Göbekli Tepe

Stanislaw Warwas Poland - 23-Apr-18

Göbekli Tepe

Visited April 2018. After one year and a half the site is open now to the public. The new visitors centre, ticket booth and a parking guard booth have been built (not without a controversy), as well as a road/path leading to the site itself which was covered with a some kind of roof. When I was there, no entry or parking fee was collected. The site is pretty small – just four circle temples one next to the other. You can walk around them and look from above – it won’t take more than one hour. Recently they started new research close by but not open to the public yet and won’t be open for a longer while

Desembarco del Granma National Park

Stanislaw Warwas Poland - 17-Apr-18

Desembarco del Granma National Park

Visited February 2018. To get to Decembarco del Grama National Park we took a taxi from Santiago de Cuba and followed the costal road which sometimes did not look like a road – seemed pretty dangerous but our driver made it! After 4 hours and a half and some stops on the way, we reached the village of Las Coloradas where the park visitors centre is located. There are many accommodation options in Las Coloradas, but you may also go and find a place to sleep in Cabo Cruz, fishermen’s village at the southern tip of Cuba. We stayed in Las Coloradas for two nights

Diyarbakir Fortress and Hevsel Gardens

Stanislaw Warwas Poland - 13-Apr-18

Diyarbakir Fortress and Hevsel Gardens

Visited April 2018. Diyarbakır is the unofficial capital of Turkish Kurdistan. The city is really big and still booming thanks to the GAP Project, but the part interesting for tourists is located on its eastern outskirts, closer to the Tigris River. The Kurdish people call the city Amida as it was named two thousand years ago.

I have very mixed feelings about this inscription that was put into WH List 2015 after ICOMOS referral. Surely it is not my favourite WHS in Turkey although I have to admit that the inscribed part has a kind of a charm… There are 6 components which constitute one rather big unity: Içkale with Amida Mound, City Walls, Hevsel Gardens, Ten-Eyed Bridge, Natural water resources, Tigris River Valley.

Stanislaw Warwas Poland - 15-Jan-18

Abu Mena

Visited in November 2017. Whatever they tell you at the branch of Ministry of Tourism in Alexandria (at the SW corner of Saad Zaghloul Sqaure), there is no direct public transport from the city to the archaeological site and the new monastery. The best way is to hire a taxi and have a good map because taxi drivers are not even aware that there’s a site like this not very far from the city – agree on the price before heading off, we paid 40 USD for six-hour trip. If you really want to get there by public transportation, take a bus to Borg el Arab International Airport and ask the driver to leave you at the junction to New Borg el Arab city. Then you have to wave for the passing cars, although hitchhiking is not recommended
