Most Beautiful Places In The World
Perched atop 200-foot chalk cliffs, the town of Bonifacio lights up the southern tip of Corsica. The French island is an eruption of granite and magma just 56 miles west of Italy. Its craggy mountains soar to almost 9,000 feet on one coast, while undulating beaches and vineyards line the other.
Busó Celebration, Hungary
A traditional part of the Busó celebration in Mohács, Hungary, is the busós, a frightening character clad in a wooly coat. The end-of-winter carnival, which came to the southern Hungary town with Croats, also features the burning of a coffin that symbolizes winter.
Punk meets shag as Willie Dowllan feeds Rufty and Tufty, Highland cattle kept by the owner of the Loch Ericht Inn in Dalwhinnie, Scotland. Jim Richardson took this photo for “History in a Bottle,” a look at the Scottish Highlands—and its single malt whisky—that appeared in the July/August 2001 issue of Traveler. Senior photo editor Carol Enquist and associate photo editor Ben Fitch discuss the image and what makes it so powerful.
Devils Tower, Wyoming
This image appeared in “America’s Cathedrals,” an October 2013 Traveler story about ancient sacred places. Here, Wakinyan Two Bulls ties prayer flags on a tree in sight of Wyoming’s Devils Tower, or Mato Tipila, long a sacred place for native peoples. Senior photo editor Carol Enquist and associate photo editor Ben Fitch discuss the image and what makes it so powerful.
Black sands sweep across Kirkjusandur in southeastern Iceland, at the foot of Vesturhorn Mountain. The region also includes Vatnajökull, the country’s largest glacier.
Each year, with a declaration of “O’zapft is!”—It’s tapped!—the mayor of Munich kicks off Oktoberfest, first celebrated 200 years ago in honor of the marriage of Crown Prince Ludwig. The Wiesn (as locals call the fest) has since evolved into a 16-day toast to Bavaria’s rich heritage. Millions attend the celebration, which features food, drink, carnival rides (such as the swings seen here), and much more.
Prado Museum, Madrid
Geoff Pingree, a professor of cinema studies and English at Oberlin College in Ohio, took this photograph at Madrid’s Prado Museum, which was staging theatrical performances inspired by masterworks by Spanish artists. Performers are dressed as Spanish King Philip IV and his second wife, Mariana of Austria. The photo won the grand prize in the 2008 Traveler World in Focus Photo Contest. Senior photo editor Carol Enquist and associate photo editor Ben Fitch discuss the image and what makes it so powerful.
Gilded and polished, an ornate room at Prague Castle awaits an event. Founded in the ninth century as a fortress, the castle has often been the seat of political power in Czech lands. Since 1918 it has been the official residence of the nation’s president.
Tet Celebration, Vietnam
A calligrapher writes messages of luck, safety, and happiness to be exchanged on Tet, a week-long celebration of the Lunar New Year in Vietnam. Tet is also a nationwide birthday party: The Vietnamese don’t mark their ages by the day they were born; instead, a baby turns one at Tet no matter when he or she was born that year.
Trooping the Color, London
Each June, London celebrates Queen Elizabeth II’s birthday with a parade, better known as Trooping the Color. During the parade, Foot Guards celebrate the regent by ceremonially parading—trooping—their regimental flag through the ranks.
