One million, five hundred thousand? To get closer to the precise numbers, you will need to come down bit more. A list of the world’s least populated national capitals can be found in our new article.
Following up on our visit to Japan last week, we now move on to the neighbouring country of Korea. Divided in 1948 into a communist North Korea and democratic South Korea, the two Korean regimes can boast, possibly, the most fortified border in the world. For many obvious reasons, these two countries present very contrasting systems. Check out our gallery.
An old saying states that food tastes best when eaten outdoors. And any return to the roots of our ancestors, who ate their meals by open fires each day, has a certain charm, as do the camping and campfires that they knew. What can be cooked on a campfire without using the traditional grill you will read all about it in this article.

Last week we visited the USA. This week we take a westwards direction from there and stop in another country – a country that counts a decent number of years in its own history, has an atmosphere that is filled with contrast, has held onto many of its traditions to the present time, and can probably boast the hardest-working people in the world. Visit Japan, the country of the rising sun.
Something quick and light and easy to pick up during the day, often not even following the usual concept of breakfast, lunch, and dinner. That’s what many people think of, when they think of food during hot summer days. But autumn, that is quite a different story. Autumn has its own rules and, believe it or not, also its own meals: heavier, colourful, and warm, of course. Today we at YT have chosen for you the most typical autumn dishes.
The town of Zlín, in the Czech Republic, is in many aspects a very unique place. The name Baťa doesn't need a lot of introduction worldwide. The Baťa shoe manufacturing enterprise was truly a revolutionary commercial concept that withstood many historical obstacles and grew into a business empire. The name Baťa is reflected in many ways within the town. Now rare are, for example, the houses called Baťa houses, which Tomáš Baťa built for his rapidly increasing work force and which give the town its typical look. What all you should not miss while studying in Zlín. See our gallery.
Three hundred years of shoemaking as a tiny family trade and then came Tomas Baťa who established Baťa, a brand that became synonymous with shoes. Continuing with our series on university towns, this week we talk about Zlin. However, it is unthinkable to talk about Zlin without Baťa.
