Viana do Castelo a City in the North seaside of Portugal.
Viana do Castelo is an Atlantic City in the North of Portugal close to Porto (more a less 70Km). It is located between three natural elements: the Atlantic Ocean, a river (Rio Lima) and a Mountain. It is a medium size city (according to Portugal’s standards) with a nice city center that is 750 years old. One of the most important things about the development of the city is the seaport and the naval repairing facilities. The shipyard is the only one still working in Portugal.
Now the city finished a program about rebuilding the public zones of the city center, so it can be good place to see Architecture (some buildings from the best Portuguese architects).
For me it can be a nice place to spend some days, the beach is quite near and is well known for the quality and for the waves for Bodyboard/Surfing and wind for Kite/Wind surfing. The only disadvantage is that the water is cold here. In the summer (August) there are some popular parties and music festivals in the district. And don’t forget to try “Bolas de Berlim do Manel Natário” (the best Berliners ever!)
The Korean Peninsula is very mountainous, especially in North Korea. The landscape has affected the mentality and economy of its state. The beauty of Mount Kumgang and other mountains ignited myths and tales for a whole nation living on a rock.

With my visit to the polar station of Ny Ålesund I already got a taste for the far north. But eventually I wanted to get a piece of the real thing. So I went on a journey straight to the North Pole, 90° latitude and a point, where every compass goes cuckoo crazy. It was remarkable.
The most challenging thing for the creative mind is to materialize ideas. But Isidro Blasco has mastered the art of turning an ambitious concept to a sight worth beholding in "Planets," a series of city sculptures made out of photographs.

Paris -- the City of Light, the home of the enlightened in arts & science. History is kind to this richly-cultured city, continuously remains as a top destination for travelers. However, resident French photographer Pierre-Louis Ferrer paints his hometown in a different light -- literally.
It is maybe the closest you will come to the North Pole: the polar region around Ny Ålesund. It is on 79° degrees north, where polar bears play polo and I was farthest from civilization. A tale about 50 shades of ice.
