Benefits of Charter Flights

Charter flights are not included in the main flight schedule, but our compatriots know firsthand about their advantages. Usually charters from St. Petersburg organize during the “high tourist season”, when the demand for airline tickets to various destinations, including to Portugal, is noticeably increasing.

It is important that direct charters are an opportunity to quickly and comfortably get to holiday destinations, where there are no regular flights without transfers and connections. Until recently, Petersburgers and other residents of the North-West region had to get to Portugal “on the crossroads” via Moscow, Riga or airports in Finland. It was required to leave home in advance, especially if it was necessary to cross the border, where there are often lines.

If the flight departed early in the morning, then travelers had to spend a sleepless night at the airport of departure or spend money on the hotel. In addition, there are not many direct flights even from all of these cities, so travel time is increased by waiting at transit airports. So it turned out that before a tourist gets from St. Petersburg to Lisbon, he is already exhausted and he needs to “come to his senses” in order to feel like a “rest”. Continue reading

Holidays in Portugal – an alternative to closed destinations

No matter what happens in the world, sitting at home behind closed doors is not an option for young, active, positive-minded people. They want to discover new places, meet interesting people, learn about other cultures, and relax comfortably from everyday routine. A great solution is to pack your suitcase, buy a ticket and go on a trip. For a month, week or weekend.

Experts note the reasons for what happened: Continue reading

Thermal Resorts of Portugal

In Portugal, there are dozens of thermal springs, on the basis of many of which modern balneological complexes for the prevention and treatment of various diseases have been erected.

A Brief History of the Portuguese Thermal Resorts Many of the mineral springs in what is now Portugal were known several thousand years ago. Since the reign of ancient Rome, some of them have been used for rest, recovery, healing. People appreciated the power of miraculous keys and tried to use it for good. The first buildings were Roman baths, where the main procedure was swimming in the pools with hot water.

Over time, most of the terms collapsed. Only local residents enjoyed the benefits granted by nature itself. In place of several Roman buildings, modern hospitals were erected with the ability to take healing baths.

From the end of the 18th – beginning of the 19th centuries, due to the attention shown by the kings, spa complexes were built at many sources, where they offered to undergo a course of treatment with “hot waters” and did a massage. Continue reading
