I'm looking at the pictures and thinking - is it similar to Medieval Merchant (Pfeffersäcke) game? In fact I don't like TuT so much after I played it only once. IMHO it was so slow, not enough strategy, so much fortune. Who can compare those two games?

I've played both, albeit Thurn and Taxis only once, and Medieval Merchant only a handful of times.

With that caveat, though, I'd say they're really not very much alike (although I like both games, but in different ways). There's a lot of strategic decisions to be made in MM, primarily where to add more houses in an attempt to gain control of a city, vs. where to take income from a city (on your turn, in each open city where you already have a house, you may either add another house, or get income from the city, but not both). MM is definitely a deeper game than TuT.

Not even close. The main similarity is that they are both games.
