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.

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.

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

The ancient monastery of Punakha Dzong

The Punakha Dzong was known in ancient times as “the Palace of great happiness”. Punakha was built in 1637. This is the second Dzong built in Bhutan. Until 1955 Punakha was the capital of Bhutan, then the capital was moved to Thimphu. Now Punakha is the administrative centre of one of the 20 districts of Bhutan.

The Dzong is situated at an altitude of 1200 meters above sea level in a valley where two main rivers of Bhutan, the Pho Chu and Mo Chu. Punakha is built on a hilly promontory. The rock rises above the river to a height of 10-storey building and stretched a length of 300 meters. The building looks like a big ship.

To the monastery are two of a number of steep steps. On both sides of the huge gate, studded with steel rivets, are little tunnels pierced in the wall of the colon. Above them are seen the narrow holes through which the monitored surroundings.
