Unexplored Oman – 10 reasons to go here immediately!

I just returned from a week-long trip to Oman. This country was a real discovery for me. Information about it on the Internet is still quite a bit and it’s strange. As it turned out, to travel around. Oman is very interesting, convenient, inexpensive and absolutely safe. Only here are not so many tourists here yet.

I think you should hurry to visit this country, while it is not too spoiled by mass tourism, and if you doubt, then I will tell you about 10 reasons to do it immediately!

Reason No.1

Oman is ideal for independent car travel. There is an excellent road and well-developed infrastructure, but there are many secluded places where you will feel yourself a real pioneer.

And still here the cheapest gasoline from those places where I happened to visit. Whether a joke – 40 euro cents per liter!

Reason No.2

More recently, Oman was considered the country for the most part on laxheri tourism. It was very difficult to get here. But everything is changing – now the Omani visa for residents of the European Union and holders of the Schengen visa is issued online within five minutes, and it is possible to travel around the country even with a tent. Many people do this, I saw it personally. The cost of the visa is 42 Euro.

Reason No.3

Once, Oman had a bad reputation. These lands were considered the fiefdom of smugglers, pirates and slaveholders. About those vague times you vividly recall when you get acquainted with local traditions. On holidays in the outskirts it is still customary to carry with it quaintly curved knives of Khanjar, and traditional male dances are not conceivable without ancient rifles and sabers. The coat of arms of Oman also emphasizes his militant past.

At the same time, the locals, although they sometimes look stern, are unusually hospitable and are always ready to come to the aid of foreign guests.

On the first day of my trip, two 14-year-olds noticed that a wheel was parked in my car’s parking lot. They changed it practically without any help, putting it on and off.

Reason No.4

It is worth remembering that Oman is an eastern country where it is customary to bargain. It is worth doing, not only in the market, but, for example, before a trip by taxi. If it’s good to try, then the initial price can be knocked down in two or even three times. But it will not be so easy to do it. Trade Oman in the blood!

Reason No.5

In this country there are many ancient traditions. To feel the real spirit of Oman, it is worth to visit local bullfights, camel races and, of course, markets.

The most striking impression of Nizwa. It seemed to me that we were transferred to the centuries ago. Authenticity is off scale!

Reason No.6

Oman is very diverse. There are stunning mountain slopes up to three thousand meters of height, an endless sandy desert, green oases, a quaint coastline with secluded coves and snow-white beaches.

And it is worth remembering that in Oman, wherever you are, whether it is the shore of the ocean or mountain slopes, you can always see stunning sunsets and sunrises. They will surely be remembered for life!

Reason No.7

Local cuisine is pleased with its diversity and quite moderate prices. Dinner for two can costs 10 Euro. Fresh seafood is more expensive, but here you can fully get into 20 euros for two. By the way, you do not need to spend money on alcohol. He’s just not here! All week we strictly abided by the dry law and it was a joy to us!

Reason No.8

Oman does not build skyscrapers. But here you can find real architectural masterpieces of the past and the present. I was wildly delighted with the local fortresses.

No less interesting were the authentic mountain villages, where people continued to live as they did hundreds of years ago, without much change.

Reason No.9

Oman is considered the birthplace of the ships "Dau". In these seemingly flimsy vessels, the Omanis is used to control the vast territory of the Indian Ocean. Build these boats and still. They can be seen in the port city of Sur, where we spent some interesting days.

Reason No.10

There is also a natural reserve nearby, which was chosen by sea turtles. At night, they go ashore to lay their eggs, and frolic in the local waters during the day. Swim with them was one of the most exciting adventures of this journey.

In addition to all this, Oman has many other unique sights. Everything is hard to tell at once, but I just started a series of posts about this country.

So stay connected and then you will learn many more interesting and useful things, especially for those who still dare to come here personally!

March and parades rattled another day of Victory. I’m glad that people remember that day. It grieves that many forget about the insanity and senseless victims of that war. Indeed, on that day 73 years ago, most Europeans, including the Germans themselves, rejoiced not in the victory over fascism, but in the end of the war in Europe and believed that this should not happen again here. Life suddenly became an important death again!

Many of us on this day try to visit military memorials and lay flowers to the dead soldiers. But there were other victims of the war, whose names were almost erased, but remembering them is very important. Those were the victims of concentration camps.

In my travels, I always try to visit similar places, sometimes undeservedly forgotten and useless to anyone. This time we will talk about Salaspils. In this city in the south of Germany "Kurtengof" was created, sadly. And this place is worthy of our attention …
