Berlin's Museum Island gets a new neighbour
No trip to the German capital is complete without a stop at the concentration of five famous museums in the middle of the River Spree. The likes of the Pergamon, Altes, and Neues Museums are all well worthy of visits to discover a jaw-dropping range of exhibits from the Ancient Egyptian, Greek, Roman, and wider world of the classical age. Just opposite these world-leading venues is the Humboldt Forum, which opened in July 2021 with some special features of its own, not least the Berlin Exhibition, the Humboldt Laboratory (a workshop for scientific research and discussion), and the spectacular Ethnological Museum and Museum of Asian Art, which boasts Chinese court art, decorated houses from Oceania, a throne from the Kingdom of Bamum, and artefacts dating back to the 5th millennium BC among its 10,000 artefacts. The recent completion of the east wing adds even more exhibition areas to the forum, so that visitors are not short of options on their next visit to Berlin.

Kingly Kladrubers add to royal status
Over 440 years ago Czech equine experts began breeding horses specifically for the purpose of pulling the coaches of monarchs. The site that emerged at Kladruby nad Labem has since become a breeding ground and training site for the Kladruber breed, which is still used by European royalty today. Though there are only four royal stables left in Europe, Kladruby nad Labem supports half of them, in Sweden and Denmark. Earlier this month, UNESCO recognised its major cultural by adding it to is World Heritage List, and visitors to the Central European site today can witness the studs of the majestic greys and blacks with a guided tour of the stables, coach room and chateau, as well as enjoy the possibility of a coach ride.
