Virtual Museum of Absinthe

If you do not know what absinthe is or had never tried it, the Museum of absinthe will fill this gap.

Here you will find a large collection of bottles, special cups and, of course, special spoons. There are many ways of having absinthe, but each and any of them can not do without a special spoon, which is used for the sugar. The Absinthe Virtual Museum houses a vast collection of different spoons. From those, that are made by the special order of the expensive metal to a simple, homemade, found in the soldier's trenchers.

A special place in the museum is occupied by the literature and art, created under the influence of absinthe, or in the name of it. After all, this strange drink inspired many people - from the simple card manufacturers, to the great Picasso. Absinthe was often used by the imaginary literature characters of the last century.

This and many other interesting facts one can discover on the pages of this museum, which has thirty-three themed rooms dedicated to the corkscrew. The virtual exhibition - is only one of the rooms. There are also: history of creation, collectors club, a selection of literature, cards, dedicated to the corkscrews.Do not be surprised to see the room "Planetarium".

The creators of this museum argue that the thirty types of corkscrews were created to honor thirty constellations.

Virtual Museum of Vintage Postcards

If you are tired of fantasies, weirdness, monsters and anomalies, than maybe it's time for you to see a good retro. The museum of old postcards is a great place for an "emotional vacation". The charm of retro lies in the soft lines, blurred outlines, tinted sepia, totally different looking people.

Famous people and ordinary people, cities and countries, St. Valentine's Day and the Halloween. And, of course, the erotic of the beginning of the last century, which now looks touching and somewhat naive.
