Fall on the Crown of Dresden

Hi everyone, how are you today? I know I promised you that the next post will be from Italy, but I found an interesting post from the previous season that I forgot to share with you last winter. Before I start with todays post I would like to remind you that in March this year I had the opportunity to visit a city in Germany – Dresden. Interesting collaboration with Dresden Tourist Board – Visit Dresden.

The city of kings – post which you loved, I noticed by your reactions. I forgot to publish an outfit post, since that was the overlap of the season, the winter took a little longer, I completely forgot to share with you a special outfit post from this magical German town.

Dresden is one of those cities in Germany which are different from classical German architecture, those straight lines of. As you walk into the city, you have the impression that you are walking in some city in Austria or France, you would never say that you are in a city in Germany. An exceptional city you can not miss to visit. If you want to find out why I love Dresden you can read it in a post which I wrote in March this year. You can read on this LINK, enjoy!

In the picture above, you can see the symbol Dresden – the Great Crown Gate. It is also the largest crown in the world and due to this crown, many tourists come from Europe and the world to get to visit this magnificent and exceptional beauty. Of course, I have not missed my chance to enjoy in her immediate beauty…

If you are wondering why this image different from other photos because of the shades of colours, I can only tell you that natural light in winter is very deceptive and suddenly when the Sun is up, it automatically changes everything. That very day, the sun has played some games with us, but in the end, as you can see yourself, everything turned out fantastic.

The crown has left an unbelievable impression on me and I hope that at least I managed to show you this magnificence with a little help picture that you can see above. They are not called Dresden by the city of kings just like that, this crown is the proof of this well-known epithet.

This picture is my favorite! I am looking at a pastry shop in this moment, it was so cold, but I knew that in a couple of minutes I will enjoy a cup of hot chocolate with some sweets. At least that’s what my photographer promised to me… 

My photographer always kept promises and this smile shows my happiness that I finally find myself in warm cosy space, I could only stay at this restaurant with just one glass of water. I would not really be scared at all! After a bit of relaxation time, our Dresden adventure continues!

In the winter days are very short, you feel truly lonely in the streets, there is no people on the streets at all! Even outside when is winter the cold is there and you do not know whether to laugh or to cry… I decided to smile at least from the pain because it was so cold and I remembered that I was almost 6 am when I got out from hotel and we were not even make the plan to return to the hotel… Sometimes it’s hard for me to understand, sometimes I admire myself how I can manage on my those little mood things. I would love to see everything, but my physical condition has always been a big sign question!

After we finished another walk tour of the city, I decided that it was better for me to go on one more tour and that I would increase my chances of returning to the hotel as soon as I had a fear of freezing outside. This was my last photo from Dresden and it was spontaneous when the photographer asked me the magical question: “Do you want to go back to the hotel?” My smile just said everything. One more adventure ended, it was time to go home. We learned something new about Dresden and we brought a lot of nice memories from this unusual town.

Adventure in the hotel

When we returned to the room, I realized that we had forgotten about an outfit that I should take photos, it was very cold outside, and the night fell, so this possibility immediately turned out. The photographer gave me the idea to take some photos in the hotel, it’s warm and it’s great lighting, nothing costs us to try it! So in the end, there was… AMAZING!

The staff of the hotel was kind enough to help us with the shooting, so they redirected all the new “inhabitants” of the hotels to the counters that are on the other side, because it was easier for taking photos. Fortunately, we finished shooting in about ten minutes so it did not take so much time. Thanks to the marketing team of the Hyperion am Schloss Hotel on a quick response and that they tried to help me in the shortest period of time, read it like 20 minutes… The staff was wonderful so we got some sweet treats while we wait. The stay at this hotel was wonderful and its location is phenomenal for all those tourists who want to be in the  heart of the city and that all important sights are near to you.

My dear fashionistas once again we have come to the end of this special fashion post from magical Dresden. Time just flies so fast when you are having a good time! Don’t worry in a couple of days I will publish a new post where we will continue together to enjoy the charms of traveling and we will explore one of the shopping spots in Italy. I just can’t wait to show you what my friends from McArthurGlen Noventa Di Piave Designer Outlet and I have prepared for you guys.

Let’s talk about Munich…

Hello everyone! My dear travellers it’s time for a new post! I’m sure that you missed my travel stories a bit, so I prepared one for you today. An interesting story about the city of the pretzels (and a good beer) that I’m sure you’ve all heard. Welcome to Munich! Munich is the capital of the federal state of Bavaria. After Berlin and Hamburg, Munich is the third largest city in Germany. What do you think the number of inhabitants enjoy daily in delicious deacons such as pretzels and a beer? You do not know? You are not sure? Think about it… Well, I gave you the chance to guess, now be honest to say if you were close – 1.45, let’s answer the answer of 1.5 million, but if we include the outside area of the city, Munich counts nearly 2 million souls.

 

 

Who are the inhabitants of Munich? Some statistics say that a third of the population is made up of foreigners, some statistics on the other side show that half of the population of this lovely city in Bavaria are foreigners. You do not have to think a lot about the structure of the population because most of them are Turks, Yugoslavs and Italians. A similar structure is in Berlin, but the only difference people from Yugoslavia is much, much less.

I had the opportunity to enjoy this city with my friends from the Munich Tourist Board and the German National Railway – Deutche Bahn, who helped to transport little Marko from Zurich back to Germany, so he just paid a visit to Munich before returning home. Thank you, my dear friends, from my heart and also big thank you to my guides who have taken all my questions, I hope that I was not too boring for you! ?

 

 

Munich is an ideal city for exploring if you are a great fan of the city’s on foot tour because most of the city is turned into a pedestrian zone. I was there in August and there were very hot and you can feel the heat and of course even higher final sales in the stores so my photographer constantly complained about outdoor working conditions and “abuse” at Zara’s stores. Dear photographer, thank you for the patience and I must admit that I am happy to have you on board! ?

Munich is the real city of hedonism, you are surely wondering why? I just mentioned you the structure of the population, on the one hand we have people from Germany who conquer tourists with the famous Bavarian pastry, either salty or sweet, you will eat all of them with the delicious smile on your face! On the other hand, we have many people from Turkey who brought with them the baklavas, borek and other Turkish specialties. If you love all these specialties, you can freely say goodbye to nice slim-fit jeans, you will gain few pounds here in Munich. Believe me!

 

 

For the first time I found inspiration in accidental passers-by tourists sitting on stairs and resting their tired adventurous soul. I understand them completely and I also have a picture from these stairs, but I was so beautiful at 37 degrees, wet and fresh that it was not really representative, so we did not even try to edit that picture! ?

At the time of my visit to Munich, the city was renovated because they were preparing for a new tourist season. The city was not empty, on the contrary it was full of adventurers who used their vacation to visit this unusual German city.

 

 

If you have the opportunity to visit Munich, do not hesitate to do this, because I am sure this city will fulfill all your expectations. The true fans of architecture will enjoy in beauty of the magnificent facades and perfectly adapted tones of the facades complemented by cobblestones. If you are a huge fan of food and sweet treats like me, this is the perfect city for you! The food is at every step, you may be spending some euro more, but you will remember the sweet little pretzel that you ate on the main square in Munich. I was almost attacked by hungry pigeons, I really love animals and I want to feed them, but that hungry blogger in me activate it’s much better for them not to fight with me! Just kidding! 😀 I shared with them my pastry.

 

 

As far for shopping, it’s easy to find all the shops just because I was not very lucky, so some shops closed or moved them because of renovation the facades of the buildings in which the shops were currently located. Since I was miserable throughout this summer, I desperately spent time in all Zara stores across Germany and I bought a lot of things on the amazing final sales, the photographer obviously read me the map wrong on purpose, so we went on some “special” roads to Zara’s shops and passed along almost all the sights in the city, so we only found one ONE Zara store in Munich. Now when I start a new season of travelling, I think the photographer will first run into the shops to warm up. Now finally I can shop, that why I love winter! 😀

 

 

Munich is also known for its famous Oktoberfest festival, which traditionally begins at the end of September and lasts until the end of the first week of October. I did not have the opportunity to visit this event, but I heard the experiences of other people who are delighted with the spirit of the event itself. One of the legends say that these days instead of water, the beer flows through the streets of Munich and that all the buildings in this city become tasty like a pretzel! I wish someone would confirm me this myth! Who experienced the Oktoberfest in Munich should share own experience in the comments. I would like to hear everything about the magic of this event!

 

 

My dear fashionistas once again we have come to the end of this special travel post from Munich. Time just flies so fast when you are having a good time! Don’t worry in a couple of days I will publish a new post where we will continue together to enjoy the charms of traveling and we will explore one of the shopping spots in Italy. I just can’t wait to show you what my friends from McArthurGlen Noventa Di Piave Designer Outlet and I have prepared for you guys.

At the end of this post, I would like to thank you for following my blog for whole summer season, this is officially the last post for this summer season. Next post will be the begging of new season on my blog, so I really hope that you will like it. 🙂

How do you like this post? Have you ever visited Munich? Did you have chance to enjoy in the magic of the Oktoberfest? I would like to hear your opinion! If you have a question, comment, suggestion or message for me, you can write me down in the comments. Of course, as always you can contact me via mail or social media, which you can find on the CONTACT page.

As I promised we’ll see again in a couple of days, so if something new and interesting happens to me, I promise, I will write to you!

Best,

Story from Berlin: Can You keep a Secret?

Hi everyone, how are you today? Welcome to my new post! Last week, I promised you the continuation of a story from Berlin…

At first, I would like to thank my friends from the Berlin Tourist BoardVisit Berlin for the support which they have provided and the incredible patience which they have for me because my German is at the basic level and I teach it and I constantly “want” from them to talk me about Berlin’s interesting facts in German, so I will learn easier this language! So let’s start with our today’s adventure!

 

 

I promised to all of you that I would show you the famous Brandenburg Gate. When the previous post was taken, the gate was renovated. In Germany, they usually have a kind of custom to use summer holiday time for reconstruction of buildings of exceptional importance because they are preparing for the new autumn/winter season and then the largest number of tourists come to Germany, especially in Berlin.

 

 

In the previous post – LINK, I wrote you about the famous bus lines 100 and 200 that help you to “cruise” and get to know Berlin better. I showed you the famous Brandenburg gate, I have fulfilled the promise and now  I can slowly walk to another location that is very beautiful to me and you should visit it when you already found yourself in the heart of Germany.

 

 

Slowly, but surely we are approaching to a Parliament. This part of the city is new and the architecture itself is modernist. The Parliament building itself is an older building, but there are certain elements such as the famous glass dome that you see on almost all of the postcards that represent the city of Berlin is almost new. Of course, it is open to visitors, but it is reserved for the bravest and with the greatest patience as the crowds are unbearable, so most people give up on sightseeing.

 

 

I always like to come here on the shore, sometimes I lean on the fence and watch the boats which are full of tourists and they love to wave people on the shore. Sometimes you just have to admit that these smiling faces also make you happy and I’m always gladly wave them, especially to the children, because who can resist the children and their amazing smile.

I usually come here when something is “wrong” in my life and does not go exactly as I planned, I buy something to eat, usually it’s a piece of fruit cake with blended raspberries, so I play sorrow scene like Carrie Bradshaw in Paris, just in Berlin! (and without that perfect French music which you hear when you watch that famous scene in Paris!).

 

 

This time, I wasn’t sad, but very happy to bring you to my second favorite place in Berlin! Really, how can I be sad when I have this cheerful shirt which I bought at final sale in Zara for just 7 euros. It can only be a reason for celebration and new photoshoot.

I did not even plan this shooting, I already had these trousers and sneakers on me. I bought the shirt that day and called the photographer to ask him when we can take some new photos for the blog, I just got the answer: “What are you doing now?”. My standard answer: “I was in Zara, the final sales are on, so I have to tell you…”. A brief sigh and silence meant that I should stop with the story of Zara! You know that my photographer does not like Zara, he does not like discounts, he does not like shopping at all… After a minute, an SMS message arrived: “See you in front of Brandenburg in 20 minutes!”.

 

 

So it was like we planned, after 20 minutes and my dressing up in the second Zara store… On the way, I bought new trousers! Forgive me, but they were 9 euros, I had to buy them! There, who would say that this shirt will fit in with my outfit, this looks so good. It is true that what people say is best to do things that are not planned.

These pictures of Parliament are very important and a bit different to me, and again that little Marko with a great desire to make new photos and of course to make a new post. Who knows when this little child in me will eventually grow up, maybe sometimes, and maybe never.

 

 

I have not met my dear Angie (Angela Merkel), I am waiting for the day when she will give me the honorary blogging order of honor and keys of Berlin because I “cleared” all the most important steps and benches in her city. Please, if someone has “connections” please, help me to meet her. One of the neighbours tells me that she lives near the Brandenburg gate and everyone is happy when they see her in one of the surrounding butchers shops. I went a couple of times, spent the money there, but I did not meet my dear Angie.

From Berlin with Love!

Hi everyone, how are you today? August has already started and showed us that the heat will not stop so easy, but I found I way to refresh myself. On the other hand, I have to admit that I am slowly getting used to these high temperatures, so I decided to keep my brain at least “cool” by writing a new post. Today, I decided to write about a city that gives me eternal inspiration, and on the other hand, a city that is my second home. Yes, I am writing you today a new story about Berlin.

Germany may be a little “hard and tight” country, but on the other hand, it is a country that offers many opportunities for everyone. Everything in live has its advantages and disadvantages, but at the end final results are amazing. Germany is not only one of the more powerful members of the European Union countries, but for some new, more modern professions like this one of my professions – blogging makes a real small paradise, where everything is arranged. In Germany, in every city, this programmatic way of life is simply felt, it’s just all planned, and you do not need to think about most common things. Every first day of the month you are charged with all the expenses for the current month, that in Germany the bills are paid in advance.

Berlin may be the capital of Germany, but it is not the main financial and socio-political center like Munich and Frankfurt. The most important thing is that this city is very close to my heart. Imagine my luck when I go to Lidl and buy nice chocolate for 60 cents and some interesting sweet cakes. It’s for me luck, in those little everyday ordinary things. Before I “get lost” in my blogging story, I would like to thank my friends from the Berlin Tourism Organization – Visit Berlin for wonderful cooperation.

 

 

The transportation card, ticket for bus, metro, s-bahn has risen to 2.70 euros, imagine that you are paying an extra ticket for the bicycle or baggage (believe me Germans rarely pay it, believe me, and this is also happening!). Good thing is that when you’re already in Berlin and you will just get over with the price of the ticket, what do the average usually tourists do? There is two lines that the Germans in Berlin despise, which are the famous line 100 and the line number 200. These are the two lines connecting the West Berlin Center to the East Center and these buses are always, but literally always crowded with the tourists who with the smile on their faces ask the driver in English “Brandenburg Gate ?!”.

Of course the driver, without a smile on his face, somehow managed to answer. “Ja, ja!” means Yes, yes … and the ride of the life can begin! By the way, of course, the older ladies with the bigger shop bags and shopping bags with wheels are entering, and they constantly complain about the lack of space and that an additional line should be introduced only for real Berliners. It’s all about everyday life, which makes Berlin a huge different world.

 

 

Of course, the tourists who are barely waiting to see this famous gate constantly ask how many stations there are to the gate, and Berliners just say you can’t miss it easily! I have to be honest, I did not trust people when they told me how people cried when they saw the Brandenburg Gate… Then I witnessed when the two girls fairly cried and jumped out of luck that they saw the gate from the bus. It was perhaps understandable to me, they were young and who knows how much they were collecting money from their student pocket money to come to visit Berlin.

Interesting! Well, I forgot to explain bus line 200 to you, it also connects the Eastern part with the West, but the route is a bit different, and one of the stops is the famous Mall of Berlin, a shopping centre. You gonna love it! Shopping centre is huge and there is a lot of brands there, I’m sure you will find something nice for you there! ?

 

 

So, that’s why I decided one summer afternoon this year, I decided to go on the ride with famous line 100! I came to the gate, the sun was very strong, all that heat, but somehow the Brandenburg Gate gave me the reasons for a smile on my face. You can also see how all that space is photogenic and that it is always full of people. If you want to find out what the “sea of people” looks like, you can see it every day in front of this famous gates.

 

 

In this post, we did not make the photos of the gate, because as you can see the sun it was too strong and the gate was renovated (we did not know that information when we went to the location for shooting), but in the next post you will have the opportunity to see the Brandenburg Gate in the best edition, arranged and renovated.

 

 

In the next outfit fashion post, I take you to a tour of Parliament in Berlin and of course I will fulfill my promise to show you the Brandenburg Gate. If by any chance you feel the urge to cry, at least you will do it in the comfort of your home and you will be ready when you see this same gate in live. I will admit that I cried when I saw the Eiffel Tower in Paris, but I was 10 years old, the excitement made my own. I cried at the age of 26 when I learned that I would go to India and after a few months the same situation for Morocco I repeated the same. As you can see I haven’t been made from stone! ?

Once upon a time in Berlin…

 

Hi everyone, how are you today? I sincerely hope that this winter has not ruined your good mood these days. Maybe I could cheer you up a little, I will share one fun fact with you that Berlin is these days much colder than I expected and that I really admire people how they manage to do their everyday routine. Today, I will write about the city where I spend more than 200 days per year and I am very proud to call that city as my other home – Berlin! I would like to thank the Tourism Board of city of Berlin – Visit Berlin for support. Thank you guys! 🙂

 

 

Life on the Belgrade-Berlin relation is not so easy, but I must admit that it’s much easier for me when I hear that all the most beautiful cities names in the world begin with letter B. Well, of course it’s a great compliment! Berlin, as I suppose you know is the main capital of Germany. Do you know what nickname the tourists gave Berlin? The city which never sleeps! Simply Berlin is a European city that never sleeps, even when the metro is closed…

How did I get to Berlin? I still think about that, but I think it was a destiny call for job, a paid flight ticket and a smile on my face are the main reasons that I might have the opportunity to change my life. As I remember it was like yesterday, a one rainy day in November. I didn’t allow the rain to ruin my special day, I immediately went to the hotel to leave my stuff. Exploring of the city and refreshing my memory was my first task for the first day a little because it was not my first “meeting” with this beautiful city.

 

 

I bought some sandwich, just sat on some “improvised” bench and I just started to watch people on the street trying to imagine myself in a suit or some nice coat how I’m running in the metro to catch the train because I will late for work. Pretty tense, is not it? Germany is a country in which rules are known in advance, there is almost no exceptions. Bills must be paid in advance by the first day of the month. I will only say a very well organised country.

Finally, day D came – interview with an employer. Shortly after stepping into the office building, I realised that this place wasn’t for me. Of course, the interview ended well, so I got a nice job offer, but I knew that this place was definitely not for me. Yeah, I know maybe you will say I’m a childish person, but I’m a big dreamer so please don’t ruin my hopes! 🙂

 

 

After the interview, I started to look the Berlin with some another eyes, because I was far from my goal – life in Germany. All right, I will survive! I was sure that there would be a chance that would suit me completely. I was lost in my minds, I walked the streets with some sad face, smile had gone. At one point someone tapped me on the shoulder with the words: “Oh my God, is it possible ?! Marko, is that you? “- It was my friend Ines, who moved to Berlin after being married. Fortunately, she ended up that day with the job and we headed for coffee right away.

After that typical talk and questions about family, health and everyday matters, Ines asked me one simple question. Why I came to Berlin? I explained to her that I had come for a job interview and that I was not really satisfied, and I would like to stay in Germany. Her question: “Marko, what do you think  about some job where you are going to work with German companies and International companies as well and occasionally to come to Berlin just to say hello? I have to tell you, your blog is absolutely amazing, I love it! “.

Ines is my colleague, my marketing soul. She has achieved her dreams, she has been employed in one of the most successful PR agencies in Germany. Suddenly, her husband called her called her, so she had to hurry home, she just gave me a business card and told me to come tomorrow morning and she would explain everything to me, she was sure that I would like her proposal.

After a sudden interesting meeting and conversation with my good friend I got some new hope, I wanted to yell so loud: “Berlin, here I come!”. I literally bounced off to the hotel, knowing that working with Ines is very funny because she is similar to me and nothing does not hold us in one place at all. It’s all nice, but I forgot to buy a metro ticket because of my happiness. Thanks God for not having control that day in metro!

 

 

New day has come, new hopes, it’s time for new victories! I was singing whole morning while I was dressing up for the meeting and slowly I headed towards to the address that was on the business card. A totally different feeling than yesterday, a beautiful building, people kinda cheerful, I said to myself: “Yes, that’s it!”. While I was trying to explain to the secretary why I came to Ines, she (Ines) by her good old customs, quietly came in and yelled “Hey blogger boy, come here we have some work to do!”. Ines and her pranks, you just need some time to understand her! ?

As we sat and talked, I lost myself in counting cakes and all those sweets and even big chocolate cakes began to arrive. Ines told me that I’m a goddamn lucky man because I came to their “Sweet Day” in the office when companies for which they work send them products to cheer them up. When I saw the conditions for work I would agree to work as a cleaner, cakes are acceptable to pay my bills! ?

We had a nice chit chat and finally we went over to the thing I came for. The whole thing was based on my blog that I opened just to entertain myself and finally that I have some place where I will be able to show people my love for life, fashion and to share some lifestyle tips and of course to entertain others with my posts. I have never had in mind that I would have the opportunity to earn something from my blog. It was so early!

 

 

I’m listening to Ines, in half of the fairy tale I’ve lost… I’ve already imagined myself on all those nice places she mentioned to me. I kept silent for about twenty minutes (wow that was a record for me!), I thought I would pass out! She mentioned that she immediately has excellent clients for me and that we can sign the contract tomorrow, I can bring contact with me to read it well and see what will happen to Mr.M blog.

Ines gave me an interesting red card, it was a beautiful red color. It was Berlin Welcome Card (a tourist card that gives tourists many benefits in Berlin). Thank to her I had my transportation card for the next 5 days! She saved me for the next 5 days and I managed to do something nice and see some new sights in Berlin. I mentioned that the Welcome Berlin card offers various benefits, discounts, and some attractions you can visit completely for free, while for certain you have special discounts that may mean a lot.

The best thing is a transport ticket for all three zones is included in the price. Berlin has A, B and C zones, and when you use the transport irrelevant whether it is a subway, S-Bahn or bus, you have to be careful that you have a proper ticket, otherwise you need to pay a fee if the controller comes! ? Transportation in Berlin is not cheap, so it’s best to check out the Welcome Berlin Card website and see the program that will fit your needs for your stay in Berlin. Berlin is no longer so far away, there are low cost flights, sometimes some good promo fares and for few hours there is you in Berlin!

A year and a half later, my life turned 1720 degrees! (360 degrees is too small for me! :D)      It’s the same Berlin, but a bit more beautiful version of little Marko who can say he is happy with his life. Oh yes, Berlin is my city of dreams! You know that famous sentence: “Come to Hollywood, here all dreams become real!”. I think that you can achieve your dreams a bit closer, perhaps in your neighborhood, somewhere in Europe. I found my Hollywood in Germany so you can try to find yours somewhere, or maybe you can try your luck in Germany why not?! Berlin is always there to welcome you!

Why do I love Berlin? Since I’m Virgo in the horoscope, at least once in your life I’m sure that you heard how Virgos are real maniacs when it comes about work and doing some things on time. That’s what I liked in Germany – Everything is on time! Whether it’s only a matter of transportation or the provision of some other service, regularity and quality is something I highly value. Their standard of living is far above ours in Serbia for example, but stop! Think about it? Just imagine yourself how you work in Berlin, you have some costs of living there, apartment, bills, food, clothes. Don’t worry, you will be able to do it, maybe you will save something and you will travel a little. It is important that you do what you love and everything is much easier!

 

How do you like this combination? How did you like Berlin? I would like to hear your opinion! Have you ever been in Berlin? If you have a question, comment, suggestion or message for me, you can write me down in the comments. Of course, as always you can contact me via mail or social networks, you can find on the CONTACT page.

We’ll see again in a couple of days, so if something new and interesting happens to me, I promise, I will write to you!

Best,

Mr.M

Dresden: The City of Kings

Hello everyone! How are you today? I sincerely hope that you are well. In today’s post, I will try to show you all the beauties of a German city, which is better known as the “City of Kings”. Dresden is the capital of the federal province of Germany – Saxony. In Dresden there are about 500,000 inhabitants, but if we consider the wider city area and the municipality then the number is considerably higher, with about 800,000 inhabitants. The city is located in the valley of the Elbe river and thanks to this fact the town is decorated with precious bridges.

 

 

Dresden represents the main cultural, political and economic center. Because of its cultural and historical significance Dresden got its name – “Florence on Elbe”. I have to admit that this city has been quite remind me of Vienna because of its architecture.

Prior to the end of the Second World War, Dresden was bombed and most of the city was destroyed (there are various sources of information, but more than 80% of the city is destroyed). A lot of people have died, and the attack on the city is still under mysteries today and intrigues many historians. After the end of the war, the city was restored as well as many monuments of historical significance.

 

 

The city is really fascinating and easy to “recognize” from other typical German cities. When you walk around the city you simply don’t have the feeling that you are in Germany. I had the opportunity to enjoy in the beauties of the city with the little help of the Tourism Board of the City of Dresden. Thank you!

 

 

Since I came early in the city it was quite reasonable that the city was quiet, but after I realized that the city was so peaceful and really quiet, you will see people, but it’s not like Berlin or some other big city that you have feeling the “noise” of the city. I have to admit that it is perfectly suited to me, because I always wanted to get rid of the sound of the rails in the metro and to get out of big town for a while.

 

 

The city is one of the real artistic work, if you maybe get lost yourself in some street, you will be amazed by the beauty of details that decorate city and the buildings. I was “lost” for a whole weekend!

The sound of the music, street artists who by the sound of their instruments simply make you lose the notion of time and at least feel the magic of some past times… I spiced it up a little with a Reforma cake that I couldn’t eat in a pastry shop because it was not enough space for seating! Believe me I don’t regret! I thought people would think I was crazy as I ate cake in the middle of the street, but in the end it turned out that it was all right. 🙂

 

 

In the heart of the city is the Zwinger Castle. A unique building, somewhat like the Versailles castle like in Paris, but because of its large outdoor area, the castle itself was mostly used for festive occasions. The most important “star” in Dresden is located in this castle, a large golden crown that everyone is coming to take photos of that famous crown as I do and I finally realised that I have made 325 pictures of the crown itself and 700 pictures of the city… “The Crown Gate” is on the one of the entrances in the old part of town. Only the name says – Crown. The crown is one of the reasons that everyone is coming to Dresden…

 

 

At the beginning of this post I mentioned to you that Dresden was bombed at the very end of the Second World War and whether you might have wondered why Allied forces bombed the city like Dresden at the very end? Dresden has always been distinguished from all other cities, primarily because of its cultural importance, and it was also the strongest cultural centre in Germany. Residents are particularly proud of this fact and they thought Dresden was the cultural “cradle” of Germany and that it was the place where this story should start from. Because of all this, the allies decided to bomb the city at the end of the war. After all those dark times, Dresden and its inhabitants make it so easy and the city was quickly restored. The city administration today is investing in the reconstruction and maintenance of the city and monuments of historical importance.

 

 

Now let’s go over on some interesting and fun things. Many of you, on social media, wondered how much time it takes to get around Dresden… The answer to that question lies in yourself. Everything depends on your condition and how much you can chime during the day. The other thing that interests all of you is whether you want to visit the city and see some buildings and monuments or you want to see the museums how much time you need to explore city. If you want to visit a city without a museum, you could make as one day excursion (again it all depends on where you are traveling and which transportation you will use: car, bus, train or a plane). My best advice is to spend at least one night in Dresden. As in every city in Germany and in Dresden there are hotels for everyone’s budget.

 

 

“If I have enough of the time which museums I can visit?”

Dresden is a city that has a rich history and there are plenty of museums, but if you already have a little more time you can visit the Military Museum and exhibitions in the Dresden Castle. The Military museum is located on the central periphery and I advise you to use the tram while the castle is in the city centre, so you don’t need to use transportation.

 

Military Museum

After several years of construction and various changes to the construction project the Military Museum of the Bundeswehr finally was opened.

 

 

The museum follows the development of Germany from the early beginning of history to the present. It was an interesting exhibition of animals used in the war for centuries. It is not advisable to take the children with you because certain pictures are disturbing. The museum is very modern and interactive, if you have time I think you should pay a visit to the Bundeswehra Museum.

 

Das Residenzschloss – Dresden Castle

The castle is located in the heart of Dresden. There are many interesting exhibitions, with special exhibitions such as the Royal Jewellery Collections, the Golden Age and the Chamber of the Ottoman Empire history.

 

 

 

A special collection of the Royal jewels can’t be photographed as a visitor-tourist or as a media representative. The collection is extraordinary and it is one of the rare and largest collections of royal jewels and items of exceptional value throughout Europe.

On the second floor there are artwork that can be photographed, certain objects you can see in the pictures above. The museum itself is divided into several themed areas.

 

 

 

I think you should visit the castle and you can enjoy the beauty of these items of unpredictable value and find out something new. It’s always good to learn something new, every new experience and knowledge makes a man richer and better.

 

 

Especially interesting is the exhibition which is showing the Ottoman Empire history. Really fascinating exhibition, I really enjoyed! That was the most beautiful two hours spent in my life.

 

 

Dresden: Where to eat?

We went to museums, we learned something new, maybe we could eat something nice! ?

There are plenty of cool restaurants that are affordable but of course you can always choose fast food restaurants, but if you want to try real German specialties or to feel exotic Asian food in the centre of Dresden it will be better for you to visit these restaurants.

My first suggestion is the Felix restaurant, located in the centre of the city. The restaurant is a modern and urban. This is a place where you can always try the unbelievable tastes of Asian cuisine. Of course, there is a classic menu, but to enjoy in Asian cuisine and to have a stunning view from the 6th floor just to see famous crown is an unbelievable feeling. Apart from the restaurant within the complex there are apartments, so you can make your trip even better!

 

 

 

If you want to feel the right German cuisine, my recommendation is Sophienkeller. Prices are affordable if you consider it to be in the heart of Dresden and that the food is of excellent quality.

 

Where to stay in Dresden?

In Dresden there are plenty of hotels that are really affordable to everyone’s pocket, but my sincere recommendation is the Hyperion Hotel am Schloss which is located in the center of the city. By name you can find that the hotel is located near the castle, which is a great thing and allows you to easily and without using the transportation to explore Dresden.

 

 

Okay, now you know some tips what you should do in Dresden, where you can eat, where you can stay… I think we miss something… I think that activity is well known to everyone, and guess what it’s a SHOPPING. At the beginning before I write some recommendations, you should know that in Dresden are mostly multi-brand stores. To whom this type of stores is unknown, these are the stores that have more brands in their offer. So far, I had positive experiences with such stores, in some cases it happened that the things of certain brands on discounts were cheaper than discounting in the official stores of those brands. Sales in their official flagship stores are from 30% to 40%, and in multi-brand stores you can find the same or similar model at a discount of up to 70% on sale.

Since I’m a male fashion blogger, guys, I think you should visit the stores I recommend. If you can’t remember, leave it to your dear ladies…  Sometimes women know better and have better memory for these things than men, so it will be much easier to take your dear lady  for a nice shopping spree.

 

Recommendations:

Prüssing & Köll – If you are a fan of the classic style and timeless elegance, this is the right place for you! You need a new coat, maybe a new suit? This store really has everything you need to be elegant. Of course, this is not just a fashion paradise for men, it’s also a heaven for ladies. If you love classic trousers, my dear ladies here will surely find them and of course much much more! Address: Heinrichstraße 5. You can find this store on the MAP.

LUI Menswear – another great “fashion” address in Dresden! Are you a fan of Italian style? You follow the latest fashion trends? I think you’ll definitely like this store. Address: Neumarkt 6 – MAP.

Schneiderei und Herrenmode Küchler – This charming tailor salon has left an incredible impression on me, because my grandfather was also a tailor. He also made beautiful suits and trousers for men. Memories are a real miracle! The owner of this salon has a longstanding experience and he is willing to follow all the latest fashion trends. All the materials are exclusively purchased from Germany, and I have to admit that the suits are very affordable if you know that you will get a quality suit that is tailored to fit you perfectly. Rates range are from 150 euros to 500 euros depending on the material and the model of the suit itself. A very interesting salon, if you need a nice and quality suits just pay a visit to this tailor salon! Address: Leipziger Str. 82 – MAP.

 

Now I would like to write some nice recommendation for ladies too! Of course, men can find something for themselves, but the accent is on the clothes for ladies.

 

Silbermann Fashion – This is a true fashion paradise for all high-end fashion brands lovers. The small department store, as I called it, has everything that you need to look amazing. Like all the things in life that have that famous BUT, in this case that’s a price. You can use final sales at the moment so you can find great fashion pieces. You just need the luck to find your size, if you find it that means you are the lucky one and you will surely have the nice item which will last for several seasons.

Altmarkt Galerie Dresden – Shopping mall in the heart of Dresden. It has about 200 shops of famous street and high-end brands. In this mall, you can find brands like H&M and all the luxurious famous brands like Hugo Boss. If you have time, I think you should visit this great shopping mall and to spend some nice and quality time there.

 

Well, I think you learned something new today and that you’ve got plenty of practical tips how to spend time in Dresden. Dresden is a beautiful city and I think everyone will find what looks for. Whether you’ve come to enjoy art, architecture or food, Dresden is here for you to fulfill all your wishes.

 

 

My travel diary is richer for a new one experience, and I went home with a smile on my face and a suitcase full of things which I didn’t dress on because of low temperatures… But I have amazing memories for a lifetime.

I sincerely hope that you enjoyed this post and that you are ready for a new adventure, maybe it’s time to visit Dresden. I think Dresden will welcome you! It’s almost Eastern, did you make some plans for holidays?  I would like to take another opportunity to thank my friends from the Tourism Board of city of Dresden on this wonderful experience.

 

 

We’ll see again the next week where I’ll show you two outfits in one post that I’ve photographed in this beautiful city. If you have a question, comment, suggestion, or message for me, you can write me down in the comments. Of course, as you have always been able to contact me via mail or social media, everything you can find it on the CONTACT page.

Best,

Mr.M

Burgundy, I love you!

 

Hi guys!

I hope you’re doing well! First, I would like to apologize to everyone for the delay of a new post … Frankly, I didn’t hope that this would happen. Fall has finally arrived in Belgrade and those famous variable temperatures where you just don’t know whether to wear a short sleeve shirt, a sweatshirt or a winter jacket… I’ve decided to wear a coat this time!

Double-breasted trenches and coats are my favorite fashion pieces and they just are never enough! Burgundy color is always good choice, people always say that colors change with new fashion season, but colors such as burgundy, navy, gray and black simply don’t get out of fashion so easily…

 

 

The Fall season you just can’t imagine without some nice dark jeans, you just have to have it in your wardrobe, it’s not important which brand you will choose, it’s only important to find jeans with a good cut which suits you well and you feel “fashionable” when you wear them! ?

You should always keep in mind that you can never get into fashion, and that’s why you should always always be faithful to your style and maybe find some inspiration in the new fashion trends… Magazines are best sources where you can always find some inspiration, but as you probably know you can just google it and find much easier and mostly for free, but then you don’t feel joy and excitement when you reading some magazine! 🙂

Take advantage of this last sunny September day and who knows you might be surprised and become a fashion icon on the streets of your city! I sincerely hope that you liked my post today, and we’ll see you next week! If you have any questions, suggestions, comments or proposals for collaboration, you can contact me via social media or via mail address: mr.m.style@hotmail.com

Best,

Mr.M

Berlin Fashion Week Day 4

 

 

Hello, everyone!

How are you today? I hope you are ready to see my new post! Today you will see my last post from the series of Berlin Fashion Week posts. This is the outfit that I wore on the 4th day, but I had a minor accident with a memory card and my pictures are lost, and my irresponsible head was not immediately transferred the images on my computer after shooting! So, I did the pictures yesterday when I went to the final sales, so I decided to combine work and pleasure and just to enjoy the moment!

I managed to somehow the impressions about Berlin Fashion Week, and I have to admit that the excitement of BFW (Berlin Fashion Week) has not passed yet, it’s easier for me to write about it! 😀 I met a lot of bloggers, both German and European, who came to BFW to feel all the charms of Berlin.

I met a lot of bloggers, from Germany and some from Europe, who came to BFW to feel the magic of Berlin.

 

 

 

BFW is an event that can help designers, models, and bloggers to make some progress in their career. It was a little hard because there were a lot of events going on at the same time and I was struggling to do all of it so my day was literally filled from 10 am until 7 pm and then my day didn’t finish because we bloggers must eat something and to spend some time together… (this was not for recording, we destroyed all the evidence!)

 

The organization was amazing, I will soon write a special post about the BFW with the pictures which I will get from their photographers and so they can best illustrate the beauty of creations that I had a chance to see. Some bloggers were too emotional as if they were not going to be on a Fashion Week next year, but I think it’s the same tradition as travelers are clapping the pilots when they take off… (that’s my opinion). I’m glad that I met people who are great fashion lovers just like me!

 

I found this wonderful jacket in Zara, it was totally surprising to me and it became a part of my outfit that day, and in the end, the combination of pure elegance  transformed into some urban street elegance, even people wondered if it was “Balmain” when I told them that is simply “Zara” which you can buy for 20 euros on final sale, they just could not believe it. Viva la Zara !!!

The trousers are classic, which you would say “boring classic”, but I love it and here you can see how you can wear classic trousers with some urban pieces and to make a good match! In Berlin, I was thankful to God for having this jacket, because it was barely 15 degrees outside, and the rain just didn’t stop… In Belgrade, I almost didn’t get a heat stroke, but I was a hero because the post has to be published! Maybe the pictures from Berlin would be more interesting because I was jumping over the little ponds and I pretend that I was waiting for the taxi… Since the situation in Belgrade was “hot” (32 degrees) as in express pot I had to calm down and make pictures on a modern place…

 

I sincerely hope that you will like my post, my Alphie ( a name for my camera) did his job perfectly, but my photographer was a bit nervous…

If you have a question, suggestion, or proposal for collaboration, you can contact me through social media or by email: mr.m.style@hotmail.com

Of course I have to thank my friends from Sony Deutschland who gave me my new friend Alphie who helped me to record all my fashion outfits and the happiest moments in the best possible way.

Best regards,

Mr.M

Berlin Fashion Week Day 3

 

Hi guys!

How are you today! I hope you are good and ready for my new post! Today I will show you my outfit which I wore on the 3rd day of BFW (Berlin Fashion Week). As you know I am the person who likes to combine some unusual color with some ordinary color (in this case that will be a beige color). I think that I did a good job, but I must hear your opinion! 🙂

 

Third day was very exciting and I also met some new German bloggers and the interesting fact they are not fashion bloggers, mostly of them were travel, food or parenting bloggers. I really had a amazing time with them and we also used a nice weather to make photos for our blogs. Mostly of bloggers that day made photos in area of Brandenburg Gate, and we decided to go not so far but to try to be original and make some photos… I must admit my plan was to make some good photos and to meet Angela Merkell, but this time luck was not on my side… Oh, well what to do… I will try another time…

 

 

My outfit was on one hand was casual but also was sportive – elegant, because jeans you can also wear for special occasions but you must be careful with model of jeans, cut and of course with the color! Sweater I bought in Zara, now here in Germany are the final sales and I bought this beauty for only 7 euros! I think I catched a good deal!

 

 

I hope you will enjoy in these photos as I enjoyed while I was making them for you! If you have some suggestion or business proposal don`t hesitate just contact me and I will be happy to connect with you!

I must say big thank you to my new friends from SONY Deutschland! Now you will see my photos much better (perfect! :D) and they gave me my new friend Alpha 7R, I think I will call him Alphie from now. What do you think about this idea? It is a small but very profesional toy! This is my second time to use it for my blog, but I feel like I used him fo years!

Sweater: Zara

Jeans: Pedro del Hierro

Sneakers: New Balance
