One of the features of Warsaw's old town is the beautifully decorated buildings, restored since World War II as closely as possible to their original splendour. A wander through the cobbled streets will reveal many houses painted in elaborate decorations such as this one, and shining as brightly as the day they were originally completed.⠀

Warsaw's historic old town suffered a similar fate to much of Europe when, in 1944, it was razed to the ground by the Nazis after the Warsaw Uprising. Rebuilt as closely as possible to the original from old paintings and photographs, the old town today is a fine place to wander and admire the splendid architecture and pleasant cobbled streets.⠀

Warsaw, Poland. One of the icons of the city is the Palace of Culture and Science, known locally, with some irony, as "Stalin's Gift". The building, modelled on the skyscrapers of communist Moscow, was a gift to the city from Josef Stalin in the early 1950s - a gift intended to demonstrate the Soviet Union's dominance over the Polish people. But the people of Warsaw have embraced the tower, which soars above the much smaller buildings of the city centre, and today it is one of the symbols of the city. ⠀

When you see a white sand beach like this you must be on a tropical island, right? Wrong - this is beautiful Cottesloe Beach, a popular hangout in the Perth suburbs. The white sands and tufted dunes stretch along the Indian Ocean coast and are a beautiful place to watch the sun finally set over the Australian continent.⠀

Sparkling in the sunshine, the city of Perth, Western Australia is a glittering modern city on the banks of the Swan River. A few short miles inland from the Indian Ocean coast, Perth mixes a modern business district with miles of parkland and waterside living. With one of the best climates in Australia, it's a great city to visit!⠀

Busselton Jetty, in the town of Busselton, Western Australia, is the longest wooden jetty in the world. Almost 2km in length, it extends far out into the Indian Ocean. The Australian coast south of Perth is littered with pretty seaside towns and wineries, and is a popular destination for Perth's residents who want to get away from the city.⠀

Canberra isn't often on the Australian tourist trail, but is definitely worth the effort! The modern, planned capital of Australia is centred around its unique parliament building, and is a city of wide avenues and magnificent views from the surrounding hills. Visit the great museums or pay an emotional visit to the Australian War Memorial. Canberra is definitely worth your while!⠀

The Three Sisters peaks in Australia's Blue Mountains are the stuff of Aboriginal legend. The story goes that three sisters were turned to stone to protect them from harm during battle. The witchdoctor intended to turn them back, but was killed himself. Now the sisters remain as one of the Blue Mountains' most spectacular highlights.⠀
