Travel the island by rail

Maximum aesthetic pleasure can be obtained by following three routes: from Colombo to Kandy, from Kandy to Ella’s tea estates and from Colombo to Galle. Continue reading
SIGHTSEEING Sydney, rightfully recognized as one of the most beautiful cities in the world, is the most cosmopolitan, most cheerful and most beautiful city in the country. The city was founded in 1788 on the shores of Port Jackson Bay (the first European settlement in Australia), and in just over 200 years it has transformed from a small convict settlement to a huge (4 times more than Moscow with a population of only 4 million people) ultramodern a city that carefully preserves the monuments of its short history. The contrast of City skyscrapers and old buildings of the Rocks and King Cross districts, souvenir shops in the Yorks and Elizabeth districts, and the Asian neighborhoods of Chinatown and Liverpool Street, the vast green spaces of parks and boulevards, and the ultramodern buildings of the Olympic buildings Kronos Hill, Sidney Superd and The Olympic Stadium in the Homebush area, the majestic (and one of the largest in the world) Sidney Harbor Bay and the unique single-span Harbor Bridge that spans over it, is 503 meters long.

SIGHTSEEING The main treasure of Norway is its nature. Thousands of secluded bays and picturesque fjords encircle its coast, and low mountains, covered with forests and meadows, create a unique flavor of this country. Thousands of clean lakes and rivers provide a unique opportunity to enjoy fishing and water sports, and carefully protected nature allows you to get acquainted with one of the most untouched places in Europe. Fjords are the main attraction of the country. The entire coastline of the country is indented by these narrow and deep bays, sung in ancient Scandinavian sagas. The most popular among tourists are Yairangerfjord, Lucefjord, Sognefjord, Hardangerfjord, Stavangerfjord, Skjoldenfjord, Glomfjord, Geirangerfjord and others, many of which are framed by waterfalls overtaking rocks and small colorful fishing villages. Sea tours of the fjords are the most fascinating journey that can only be found in this country. Oslo (the “field of God”) is the industrial, commercial and port center of Norway, but at the same time one of the smallest (with a population of about 500 thousand people) and environmentally friendly European capitals. Located on the shore of a huge fjord of the same name, formed by the three “sleeves” of an ancient glacial valley, the city is picturesque by itself. Continue reading
The true monuments of antiquity in Mexico are the pyramids. There are many of them in the country, but only a few are available for viewing. Many pyramids are buried under the cultural layer and covered with dense tropical vegetation, so that they are simply green hills. Most of the pyramids are multi-layered structures: the oldest is inside, and above it there are several later superstructures and facings.
The most famous and probably the most ancient are the pyramids of Teotihuacan, not far from Mexico City. Teotihuacan (translated as “a place where people communicate with the gods”) is the oldest and most mysterious of all the open cities of pre-classical America.
In the days of Ancient Rome, it totaled 200 thousand inhabitants. By the end of the first millennium AD, the city was empty, its temples and houses were destroyed. The two largest pyramids have been preserved – the pyramid of the Sun and the pyramid of the Moon, as well as the temple of the most popular of the Mexican gods – Quetzalcoatl, personifying a good and bright beginning.

Stars are accustomed to rest brightly and comfortably, but often – secretly from prying eyes. Well-known people, although they can travel the whole world, still prefer their favorite resorts, where they gladly return every year, and sometimes they even buy houses there. Today we will “disturb” their peace and talk about the top 5 places where famous and creative people like to spend their holidays.
1. Expensive and luxurious Marbella (Spain)
Marbella is a pearl in the necklace of the Costa del Sol, a region in sunny Spain. Located in Andalusia, it is not only remarkable for the majestic Sierra Blanca mountain, but also an exclusive European port for private yachts. In summer and winter, the weather is always pleasant because of the mountain wall, which protects from cold winds and provides shelter in the sweltering heat. Although the resort is considered to be young, 20 kilometers of sandy beaches have already been equipped here. Among them is the San Pedro de Alcantara, awarded the Blue Flag. Continue reading
