Oktoberfest in Germany

The famous beer festival and the largest in the world Oktoberfest takes place in late September and early October. And not only in Munich, but also far beyond.

During the festival you can see colorful costume parades and live performances of the best musicians, take part in various competitions and, of course, taste hundreds of varieties of beer. If you're planning to attend this festival, it's well worth booking a hotel in Munich in advance.

Día de los Muertos - Day of the Dead in Mexico The Día de los Muertos festival takes place not only in Mexico but also in other Latin American countries. In early November, people gather to commemorate their dead relatives and friends. For the Day of the Dead, townspeople prepare sweets, hold carnivals, decorate altars with velvets, wear themed costumes and make up. This tradition comes from antiquity - the Aztecs and Mayans believed in the afterlife of Mictlan, and regarded birth and death as transitions from one dimension to another. They also believed that no one goes anywhere. This is why the holiday is still considered a luminous occasion to this day and is seen as an opportunity to feel a close spiritual connection with deceased relatives.
