Vienna is known for its high quality of life. In a 2016 study of 230 world cities, Mercer ranked the city first for the world's most livable cities.

Our city attracts over 3.7 million tourists a year. Vienna - a city of proud palaces and peaceful parks, a home to emperors and art, Strauss and Sissi. These are the big ones. The most impressive, perhaps, is the summer home of the Habsburgs – Schönbrunn. The winter palace, the Hofburg, is also packed with attractions, including tours of the Imperial apartments, several museums and even a butterfly house. And of course there’s Belvedere, with its two Baroque palaces and gardens.

More than 400 km of coast and beaches make our country as one of the most preciated tourist places. But we also have the Pyrinees mountains where we go to ski in winter.

 

 

Barcelona is about 100km far from Navàs. It is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. There are many important places to vist but La Sagrada Familia basilic from the architect Antoni Gaudí is just wonderful!

Istituto Comprensivo di Gemona del Friuli, Gemona - Italy

The “Istituto Comprensivo di Gemona del Friuli” is surrounded by a mountain and hill frame and lies at the foothills of the Alps in north-east Italy in the towns of Gemona del Friuli and Artegna (15000 total inhabitants). It consists of 3 infant schools (224 pupils), 3 primary schools (566 pupils), and 2 lower secondary schools (357 students).

 

The district is rich of historical, artistic and environmental heritage and offers a variety of opportunities for visitors: from landscape to the history - which is also architectural - of its places; from cultural to folk events; from nature trails and hikes to food and wine experiences.

 

Gemona and Artegna’s castles, destroyed by an earthquake in 1976, have been recently rebuilt after long and difficult reconstruction processes. Our community is very proud of this, as the castles are the town symbols and the very last step in the post earthquake reconstruction.

 

Kids Conquering Castles gives emphasis to this fact, as it promotes the castles through the creativity of children and allows to alive them with child-friendly activities promoted by children themselves.
