Why calling it Sunlands?
Besides having a nice feel to the name that conjures up images of sun and nice landscapes, there is a deeper meaning to it. Since the millenias the sun was known as a giver of life and light by the cultures from around the world, and was worshipped for both what it physically is and what it spiritually represents. Therefore, the lands of the sun are places where reign happiness, peace, prosperity, and love. Our company’s aim would be to mimick that on a small scale, by exposing travelers to the light of knowledge, experience, contetnment, and joy. For we know well that travelers that set out on a journey look for unique information, experience and adventure, something out of the ordinary and unexpected. And this is exactly what our mission is to provide – the “lands of the sun“ that will stay permanently etched in traveler’s memory. In achieving this, we are dedicated to work and co-operate with the best in the fields of tourism, science, culture and education.
