I wasn’t surprised to learn that the central area of Budapest that is situated along the Danube River is part of the UNESCO World Heritage. There are many remarkable buildings there, such as the Hungarian Parliament (you can see it, glittering on the picture) or the Fisherman’s Bastion. Another golden point which you can see in this photo is Saint Stephen Basilica.
Why choose this Adriatic Sea port for a holiday or vacation? Probably because of the nature – you have the Kotor Bay, surrounded by mountains which height ranges from 1000m to 1700m. Additionally, those of you, who like medieval culture and history, would really appreciate the well-preserved Kotor Old Town and the Fortifications.
As a person who likes big sporting events very much, I find this marble stadium simply amazing. I guess that all fans of the Olympic games and their history, would love to see the impressive Panathenaic Stadium in Athens with their own eyes. ‘The marble stadium’ is the only one stadium in the world, built entirely of marble. It should be noted that the opening and closing ceremonies of the first modern Olympic games in 1896 were held there.
That breath-taking view of the capital and largest city of Greece could touch any heart, I think. At least that happened with me and with all the people around me, who were enchanted by the spectacular panorama of Athens at sunset. This photo was taken from Lycabettus hill while I was waiting for sun to set and shoot photos of Parthenon hill.
Originally the branch canal Nyhavn was trenched in 1673 to connect the marketplace Kongens Nytorv to the busy port of Copenhagen in order to boost the trade. Even though Nyhavn never went on to be a big port, due to its limited size and capacity it still led to a lot of businessmen settling down along the promenade. The typical colorful gabled houses were mostly built in the 18th and 19th century and are one of the most important sights in the Danish capital today.
