This is a cool and cheap city with great neighborhoods and history. Architecture is amazing and virtually all tourist attractions are free or cheap. Good Baseball team if you are in to that. 2nd best zoo in america and its FREE, all Museaums are FREE. Beer and food is cheap and great stl style food, BBQ, Pizza, Toasted Ravioli, good craft beers. Add STL to your next cross country road trip or as a destination. Gateway arch is undergoing a massive renovation, central west end is named one of the best neighborhoods in america, delmar loop named best commercial district, forest park named best public space (which also hosted the 1904 worlds fair, and now all free attractions meuseams, zoo, etc) Soulard neighborhood is historic/cool and is about to host Mardi Gras (2nd best in america just after NOLA)
once the 3rd largest and 2nd richest city in america there is a lot of cool buildings to look at as well.
Give St Louis a try for good food, awesome neighborhoods, Cheap& Free times..
sorry for unorganized post, this is stream of consciousness writing.

My girlfriend and I are thinking about going to Switzerland. It's supposed to be beautiful and from Holland an easy one day drive. We've already been to Geneva when we were staying in the French Alps.
Anyhow. We love the outdoors, mountains, lakes, hiking, cable cars etc. We'll probably visit a city or two if it's close, but we're mostly there for the amazing nature.
What would be a good place to stay that is both beautiful and within reasonable driving distance of some of the best things Switzerland has to offer. We're not opposed camping, but since we're spoiled a little more luxury is appreciated. Glamping (even though I hate the word), chalets, that sort of thing. If possible.
Where do we stay and what do we go see?
Buzludzha Monument, Bulgaria

So in a few days, ill be in Bulgaria all by myself for 3 days before i head onward into Romania and one thing that i have always wanted to see is the Buzludzha Monument in the mountains (pic related).
For me its a combination of cold war history, abandoned places, awe inspiring architecture and communist ideology that drives me to want to go to this place, even though it is a very large detour on what is a very small trip into Bulgaria.
Ever since i saw a post about it on trv 2 years ago by some anon ive wanted to go there and visit it for myself, though as an Australian its obvious that such an opportunity doesn't come around often, though im in the area now and im willing to make a side trip to see it.
As this is the place that i first heard about it, im hoping some anons might have been there recently and know how to get there because the information on the internet is all years old, currently i'm traveling solo and thus have a few questions...
1. How do i get there? Ill be staying in Sofia but have the chance to come down to Kazanlak (the closest major town) for a night.
2. Whats the security situation? Is it guarded, because i know its officially 'closed' and the doors sealed (though i know theres other entrances where people have broken in).
3. Is it dangerous? I have proper winter gear and hiking boots, desu im more worried about shady Bulgarian men with knives hiding in the dark waiting for tourists.
PLEASE, if anyone has any info on the place id really appreciate it...
Even better, if you knew a local or guide that could take me there it would be fab, just come contact details, desu i really just dont want to go alone because i dont know the area, its cold and its abandoned, i dont travel solo much so its a tad spooky.
Dont want to miss out on this once in a lifetime opportunity, because if pics are anything to go by it looks like it will be a pile of rubble within the decade.
