The most mysterious place in St. Petersburg

The most mysterious place in St. Petersburg.

This Sunday I visited one of the most mysterious places in St. Petersburg.

This place is widely known.

But I have in the last few years have not encountered a single eyewitness who had been there.

This place is easily accessible and a narrow circle of people often goes there (it’s not the top of the Alexander column, which everyone knows, but no one there was.

But at this point almost no one has gone before.

In any case, almost certainly, none of the readers there this year was not.

Try to guess.

Try at least approximately to guess what this place is.

It is a mysterious and rare place – the state academic Capella of St. Petersburg.

Yesterday there was a concert dedicated to the Day of the Lyceum.

October 19 – opening day, the birthday of the Lyceum.

Performed works on poems by Pushkin.

I wouldn’t got to a concert (vanity, you know), but promised that it would be a very good guide that guides the courtyards and inner rooms of the Chapel.

And I’ve always wanted to walk through the Chapel and something extra to know about their yards.

The chapel for me is a place where I think of my student youth.

I remember how after the show I ran through the yards on the subway to Continue reading

Why built the Great wall of China?

Why built the Great wall of China?

Semeiko was Vladimir, chief of staff of the FSA, honorary doctorate Brussels University, 07.11.2006

Says the President of the Academy of fundamental Sciences Andrey tyunyaev:

As you know, North of the territory of modern China, there was another, much more ancient civilization. This is repeatedly confirmed by archeological discoveries made in particular, in Eastern Siberia. Impressive evidence of this civilization, comparable to the Arkaim in the Urals, not only is still not well studied and understood world history, but never received a proper evaluation in Russia itself. As for the so-called “Chinese” walls, then talk about it as about the achievements of ancient Chinese civilization is not quite legitimate. Here to confirm our scientific correctness it is enough to cite only one fact. LOOPHOLES in large parts of the wall are NOT DIRECTED TO the NORTH AND SOUTH! And this is clearly evident not only in the most ancient, the reconstructed sections of the wall, but even on recent photosgrafik and in the works of Chinese figure.

Earlier by the Chinese themselves was a discovery about the ancient Chinese writing another nation. There is already published work showing that these people were Slavs Aryans.

So, who built the great wall, which today is called the Chinese? Whom and who was she protecting?

And my collection of photos on this topic.

Notre Dame de Paris

Notre Dame de Paris

The history of the Cathedral

The term “Gothic” (from the name of the Germanic tribe is ready) emerged in the Renaissance. Gothic called any art which did not conform to classical antiquity forms. In art history it is customary to distinguish early, Mature (high) and late(“flamboyant”) Gothic.

Among the cathedrals of early Gothic architecture the most majestic and, of course, the famous Notre Dame de Paris (Notre Dame Cathedral). The construction of the Cathedral on île de La Cité was begun in the XII century on the initiative of the Paris Bishop Maurice de Sully. and lasted nearly 170 years. The first stone was laid by the king Louis VII in 1163 G.

During this period the Romanesque style gradually gave way to Gothic. It is the synthesis of two architectural styles, the Notre-Dame de Paris owes its unique appearance. This is not a squat Romanesque Church, but not yet soaring Gothic Church.

But still new style prevails: in the contours of the Cathedral reign of vertical and pointed forms. Thanks to tapering upwards wall niches and narrow Windows with tracery columns, Cathedral “flows”. A flat surface is minimized, as if the building consists of a game of volumes, the contrasts of light and shade. Especially plastic nature of the architecture of Notre Dame expressive in Eastern Continue reading
