... Everybody, who tries to understand and comprehend east wisdom, knows, that you should prefer simple contemplation of the river to the fuss, problems and joy. And the life, not less bright and full, than in the big and noisy cities, will happen before your eyes with a current of water. It is difficult to understand it, it is better to visit these two rivers one day. All the more, these rivers, RHINE and MOSELLE, saw everything and everyone.
Once dragons, Nibelung and gnomes lived there. Then people with not less exotic, as dragons’ habits, habits to fight eternally and do harm itself and others. And to suffer from it. Perhaps people will sometime leave, and Rhine and Moselle will be seen by other beings to replace them, who, as well as we, will think that "These rivers — just the water, and they are eternal creations"...
We leave early in the morning, and having got on the federal road, running along Rhine, laid by Romans 2000 years ago, we admire and enjoy landscapes, worthy brushes of great artists and the laudatory words of the most great writers and poets...
And thence through Berlin, Dresden, and the like,
Until he reach'd the castellated Rhine:—
Ye glorious Gothic scenes! how much ye strike
All fantasies, not even excepting mine;
A Grey wall, a green ruin, rusty pike,
Make my soul pass the equinoctial line
Between the present and past worlds, and hover
Upon their airy confine, half-seas-over.
(George Gordon Byron)
With these words and a dream we drive to the nice city of KOBLENZ, where we will walk around the William I's Corner, famous in the whole Europe, in the image of the city observing rest with help of the 1000-year old Ehrenbreitstein Fortress, the coeval of our ancestors and... we will head to the other coast. This time Moselle. Moselle is enthusiastically described by the Roman scientist and poet Decimius Magnus Ausonius in 371:
the tops of the villas standing out
above the overhanging banks, the hills green with
vines, and the pleasant waters of the Moselle flowing
beneath with a muted murmur.
Hail ! river praised both by fields and settlers,
to which the Belgae.'e ramparts considered worthy
by the emperors, river whose slopes are planted
with vines yielding a perfumed wine, most green
river, whose banks are covered with grasses ! Navy-
gable like the sea, your waters are borne down like
a river's; by your glassy deeps you resemble a lake ;
Amazingly! Nobody can write better. And this is 1700 years ago!
Since then nothing changed here, and Cochem opens its embraces for us — the wine capital of the famous river - "Earthly paradise". After the excursion-walk around the city - panoramic ride by the motor ship along the picturesque Moselle coast, covered with ancient towns and majestic castles and tasting exclusive Moselle wines and liqueurs (are paid additionally, at will).
After easy moving, in a complacent state we will appear in Eltz Castle, the architectural handsome, which, unlike many others, was never exposed to capture and defeat, even at the time of the French Revolution. An excursion to the castle is with our brilliant guide (the entrance ticket with an excursion is paid additionally).
We don’t want to go home so much, but it is necessary, with hope to return here at the first opportunity we go back.

Where wine flows as water...
