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.

Yesterday there was a concert dedicated to the Day of the Lyceum.
October 19 – opening day, the birthday of the Lyceum.

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.

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
Buildings and structures left on the planet since ancient times, for many centuries mind-boggling history buffs. From the Parthenon to the great Pyramid, it seems that there will be no end to the huge amount of information we can get from them. But often what can be observed above the ground pales in comparison to the amazing findings that are discovered under our feet. Whether they were ancient reservoirs, theaters, temples, or disguised strongholds. these monumental subterranean structures serve as a legacy of outstanding inventiveness of the people of the Ancient world.
10. Chavin de huantar. Peru
Pre-Columbian pilgrimage center of Chavin de huantar is approximately 12 thousand square meters. Consisting of artificial terraces and squares, built with Adobe bricks of buildings and the sunken Plaza, its impressive appearance confirms an important ceremonial and cultural importance of this place in the religious sphere of the ancient civilization of the Andes.
However, the essence of a place is its underground tunnels, ventilated mines, stone chambers and galleries. It is here you can see the engraved obelisks and statues in the place of their natural occurrence, and wonder the huge scale of the masonry of this building. In fact, sewage and ventilation network Continue reading
