Barcelona

Appeared comfortable handles, and doors began to open and close automatically. The penultimate generation of German trams – urbanized city plodder of steel, aluminum and plastic. The only concept that took into account the design engineers of the tram – it saves and a maximum capacity of wagons. Alas, construction of these cars had to be right on time when gasoline was cheap, and installation of new ways – on the contrary, terribly expensive. But the latest generation of trams, presented in all its glory on the streets of Berlin, Frankfurt, Cologne and many other cities in Germany – is another matter. This high-tech, comfortable cars, completely safe and quiet.

SPAIN history of tram traffic in Spain is not much different from counterparts in other European countries. In Madrid, Barcelona, Seville, Toledo and trams appeared in the last century. Naturally, they were competing. And after half a century after the fall of the Franco regime, the trams were replaced by more cost-effective at the time buses. And now, after nearly 40 years after abolition, the streets of Madrid has come up sparkling tram. Externally it is a miracle of modern tramvaestroeniya resembles a ship cutting edge – sleek lines, large windows, and inside – complete electronic 'stuffing'. Success of the first tramway line in Madrid was truly deafening. The city authorities have invested in new vehicles as much as 180 million euros, but after a year decided to extend the operation of the project.

The city became noticeably freer of chadyaschimi buses, and traffic on the roads has declined significantly. In addition, the Madrid subway, congested at peak times, over many years could catch his breath. Followed the example of Madrid and other Spanish cities: Metro soon appeared, and in the industrial capital of the north, Bilbao. 'Light Train', so called Spanish tram transports up to 180 passengers, without any bustle and hustle. Practical Spanish produce on the line triple compounds, which greatly increases their profitability. SWITZERLAND The Swiss were, as always ahead of the rest. Namely, after almost half a century, the line went international … tram. Yes, yes, you heard right, this tram carries passengers from the Swiss resort town of Basel to France. Earlier this route collects passengers in Germany. In Zurich, the financial capital of the country, tram at all is the dominant mode of transport: 63% of passenger traffic within the city is carried by tram. Near Zurich and Geneva falls short. In this town on the shores of the lake daily tram carries up to 30% of passengers. Swiss authorities are concerned about gas pollution of cities, people's interest in stimulating the use of environmentally impeccable transportation. Special monthly tickets entitle Free for a transplant, and student and tourist tickets include a significant discount. The vast majority of Swiss cantons refused to subway construction in their cities, believing that Tram safer and quieter, and infrastructure for the tram lines – much cheaper.

Mediterranean

The fall is unlikely, the traditional “Torggelen” in South Tyrol is on everyone’s lips. History of the “Torggelen” that the “Torggelen” in the Isarco Valley has its origin, is undisputed. How it came to this tasty tradition, there are three theories. Some assume that it was the conclusion of a swap transaction: the wine growers of the farmers brought your animals during the summer on the Alpine pastures. A peasant Feast was the thanks and the payment for the herding of animals in the autumn.

Others assume that the “Torggelen” was the conclusion of the harvest season, where with all harvest helpers together the result of harvesting cost. And the third method says that wine merchants from all over Tyrol travelled to South Tyrol wines and to stock up the year’s supply. So when the whole wine tasting the alcohol not too fast went out as the winner, a little food was served. Of course it can this theory out to be that the food was a small bribe to make the better impression to the buyer. Wine and chestnuts Wine and chestnut are the most important elements in the “Torggelen”. Everything else is decoration around. Chestnuts were an important component of the diet in the past, they were used among other things as a bread substitute.

The culinary use of chestnut was handed down from the monasteries, which brought arguably the fruit from the Mediterranean to South Tyrol. It is well known that the Benedictine friars were culinary very open-minded. And that roasted chestnuts are a culinary highlight, that should be obvious to anyone who once enjoyed. Weeks today today the “Torggelen” is versatile and is available almost everywhere. The days are gone when it is been offered only in wine shops, so wine farms. So the old traditions are lost today some wine is moving into the background, the food does not come in many places from own production, some try with refined features to stand out. It can be so that the “Torggelen” is already offered in September, when the grapes on the vines, long hang. And it may well be that the “Torggelen” on high gel close pastures or in cooling areas is offered, where vines do not even have a chance of survival in the greenhouse. So is the central theme of the “Torggelen”, the tasting of the “Nuien” in the background. Nevertheless, “Torggelen” in South Tyrol is a custom for lovers, and it mobilizes locals and holidaymakers alike. It has more than ever his permission. And it is a tradition that adapts. David Rogier describes an additional similar source. More information on:
