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

However, Die Straße Romantishe took longer than we had planned (and less than we wanted, when we realized where you were, and so we went at once to Cologne, where we had booked a hotel. Well, in Stuttgart got on the next day, thus making a hook under 750 miles. However, on the German autobahn so much nezdice. So, Stuttgart:

Stuttgart

In this city I, of course, attracted and enticed the historical fact, which is closely and inseparably linked with Mercedes Benz. Here is the headquarters of the most famous, the oldest of the German automaker. Well, besides all other the most, Mercedes for me personally is, perhaps, the most respected car brand. Well, or one of the most respected.

In that part of town, where he established the company with a three-beam star, in addition to headquarters, there is a Museum of this brand. I have with great pleasure visited.

What can I say about this Museum? Much and long about him to speak, choking on the saliva and positive emotions From all automuseum that I already visited, this is, perhaps, the best. And the most well organized. In the price (8 Euro) includes use of interactive audio guide, which Continue reading

Mysterious spider tower

Mysterious spider tower had baffled even scientists

Surveying the trees in the forests of the Amazon, the graduate student found three others of similar design and reflected on their photos. Then he posted their pictures on various websiteOh, to find out what creature creates these structures. “They were all on a small island near the research center Tambopata and had small sizes – about 2 inches in diameter. Maybe someone will be able to explain their origin” said Troy to the visitors websites. But no one could give a clear answer. Moreover, tiny tower has baffled even scientists.

The first drew attention to the photosgraphy Troy biologist Phil Torres (Phil Torres) who has posted a linkson the page with mysterious photos on Twitter and thus began the discussion.

“I have no idea what it is and who has created this structure” said the entomologist from the Smithsonian tropical research Institute (Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute), William Eberhard (William Eberhard).

“I saw photosgraphy, but was not able to understand which animal is responsible for creating the Continue reading
