Mexico Attractions

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.

Denmark Attractions

SIGHTSEEING One of the most important sights of Denmark is the Danes themselves, their friendliness, hospitality and humor. The Danes live at the crossroads of Scandinavian, European and Baltic cultures. This helped them to be open both in the sense of boundaries and for influences from the outside. The key to the Danish heart is the word hüggge, which means a combination of warmth, well-being and intimacy. Thanks to the new bridge over the Great Belt Strait, almost any attraction can be visited during a day trip by car or by train. You should definitely see Copenhagen. The capital of Denmark is famous for its many spiers, towers and bell towers. Among the attractions, one can especially highlight the Amalienborg palace complex (XVIII century). Four identical buildings are located opposite each other on an octagonal square, in the center of which stands an elegant equestrian monument to Federic V. Nearby is the famous Marble Cathedral. Its dome with a diameter of 30 m is very similar to the dome of St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome. The most colorful area of ​​Copenhagen is Nyhavn (New Harbor). This is a favorite place for artists, photographers, writers, journalists and tourists. Continue reading
