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.

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

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.
