I wouldn't say. Or: it's matter of your preferences. I'm guy who loves summer, but the best winter for me is harsh winter - even with -20*C View when there's a lot of snow may be really lovely, especially at night.

And by another way: who sightseen some old city during real winter? It may be great experience. I'd recommend Budapest, Prague or Cracow

I would recommend Prague in winter (and the other cities as well) but in December, not in January. It looks much better with the Christmas frenzy going on everywhere.

There are always babies on transcontinental flights. It's fine.

Problem is she's not really a baby any more, doesn't sleep all the time etc. She'll be 1 year and 8 months by then, and she can't stay idle at one place for long time, needs to do crazy stuff and throw a lot of energy all the time, which is actually very difficult to achieve aboard a plane.
Actually, we plan this winter vacation in the dates 2-6 of January, so hopefully a lot of the Christmas and New Year's lights and other frenzy will still be on?

Your parents were in Istanbul last week? Quite a coincidence. Btw, I was looking at license plates a little, but they were mostly only Turkish. I saw a few Bulgarians, Romanians, a Greek, Serbian, Hungarian, Russian and some Arabic plate, that's all. Turks positively surprised me with basic knowledge of Slavic languages.

Somewhere, presumably, and on the appropriate date. Your heads of state, however - both of them - are chosen for you by their parents. And the will of God, or something.

That means you have a new passport since your visit to Zrenjanin and Novi Sad 2 years ago?

Stamp from Liechtenstein would mean a stamp from the Swiss authorities, as they control all customs and immigration affairs of Liechtenstein.

At that time and every other time I crossed the border to Serbia I did that only by ID.
I only have passport for a year, made it because I knew I will be moving to Germany. But next time I will be driving in Serbia, I will show the passport, maybe I will get a stamp.
My girlfriend had one from Nikola Tesla Airport as she flew in from Memmingen last year.

No, as I wrote, touristic stamp, from Tourist Info in Vaduz.
It costs 5 CHF or Euros something.
Since FL and CH are in Schengen I don't think you get stamps anymore...

And talking of unelected little old ladies (who I'm sure are perfectly nice people), I offer - strictly for humo(u)r - this. I've seen it about ten times, but received it from a South African-born co-worker yet again yesterday:
To the citizens of the United States of America from Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II

In light of your failure in recent years to nominate competent candidates for President of the USA and thus to govern yourselves, we hereby give notice of the revocation of your independence, effective immediately. (You should look up 'revocation' in the Oxford English Dictionary.)

Her Sovereign Majesty Queen Elizabeth II will resume monarchical duties over all states, commonwealths, and territories (except North Dakota, which she does not fancy).

Your new Prime Minister, David Cameron, will appoint a Governor for America without the need for further elections.

Congress and the Senate will be disbanded. A questionnaire may be circulated next year to determine whether any of you noticed.

To aid in the transition to a British Crown dependency, the following rules are introduced with immediate effect:

-----------------------

1. The letter 'U' will be reinstated in words such as 'colour,' 'favour,' 'labour' and 'neighbour.' Likewise, you will learn to spell 'doughnut' without skipping half the letters, and the suffix '-ize' will be replaced by the suffix '-ise.' Generally, you will be expected to raise your vocabulary to acceptable levels. (look up 'vocabulary').

------------------------

2. Using the same twenty-seven words interspersed with filler noises such as ''like' and 'you know' is an unacceptable and inefficient form of communication. There is no such thing as U.S. English. We will let Microsoft know on your behalf. The Microsoft spell-checker will be adjusted to take into account the reinstated letter 'u'' and the elimination of '-ize.'

-------------------

3. July 4th will no longer be celebrated as a holiday.

-----------------

4. You will learn to resolve personal issues without using guns, lawyers, or therapists. The fact that you need so many lawyers and therapists shows that you're not quite ready to be independent. Guns should only be used for shooting grouse. If you can't sort things out without suing someone or speaking to a therapist, then you're not ready to shoot grouse.

----------------------

5. Therefore, you will no longer be allowed to own or carry anything more dangerous than a vegetable peeler. Although a permit will be required if you wish to carry a vegetable peeler in public.

----------------------

6. All intersections will be replaced with roundabouts, and you will start driving on the left side with immediate effect. At the same time, you will go metric with immediate effect and without the benefit of conversion tables. Both roundabouts and metrication will help you understand the British sense of humour.

--------------------

7. The former USA will adopt UK prices on petrol (which you have been calling gasoline) of roughly $10/US gallon. Get used to it.

-------------------

8. You will learn to make real chips. Those things you call French fries are not real chips, and those things you insist on calling potato chips are properly called crisps. Real chips are thick cut, fried in animal fat, and dressed not with catsup but with vinegar.

-------------------

9. The cold, tasteless stuff you insist on calling beer is not actually beer at all. Henceforth, only proper British Bitter will be referred to as beer, and European brews of known and accepted provenance will be referred to as Lager. South African beer is also acceptable, as they are pound for pound the greatest sporting nation on earth and it can only be due to the beer. They are also part of the British Commonwealth - see what it did for them. American brands will be referred to as Near-Frozen Gnat's Urine, so that all can be sold without risk of further confusion.

---------------------

10. Hollywood will be required occasionally to cast English actors as good guys. Hollywood will also be required to cast English actors to play English characters. Watching Andie Macdowell attempt English dialect in Four Weddings and a Funeral was an experience akin to having one's ears removed with a cheese grater.

---------------------

11. You will cease playing American football. There is only one kind of proper football; you call it soccer. Those of you brave enough will, in time, be allowed to play rugby (which has some similarities to American football, but does not involve stopping for a rest every twenty seconds or wearing full kevlar body armour like a bunch of nancies).

---------------------

12. Further, you will stop playing baseball. It is not reasonable to host an event called the World Series for a game which is not played outside of America. Since only 2.1% of you are aware there is a world beyond your borders, your error is understandable. You will learn cricket, and we will let you face the South Africans first to take the sting out of their deliveries.

--------------------

13.. You must tell us who killed JFK. It's been driving us mad.

-----------------

14. An internal revenue agent (i.e. tax collector) from Her Majesty's Government will be with you shortly to ensure the acquisition of all monies due (backdated to 1776).

---------------

15. Daily Tea Time begins promptly at 4 p.m. with proper cups, with saucers, and never mugs, with high quality biscuits (cookies) and cakes; plus strawberries (with cream) when in season.

God Save the Queen!
