New York - part 2

Hello again!

How are you? Hope you're doing well. Today is a time for New York City's attractions. I think everyone knows most of them, but maybe you will learn something new 😊

Museums of Art


There are a few museum of art, just like Metropolitan Museum of Art, Museum of Modern Art or Guggenheim Museum. The first one is the most significant museum in the world, often called "Met". This museum has about 2 millions of exhibits documenting the history, culture and art of all the world. We can admire many works created by Rembrandt, Rafael, van Gogh or Monet. Museum of Modern Art, known as MoMA, is one of the most prestigious collection of modern art. Guggenheim Museum has many works from XX century and, of course, modern art.  The building of this museum is very impressive - it's a work of art designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.

High Line

Oasis situated on the west side of Manhattan. This elevated linear public park is an exciting attraction in NYC. There is a variety of plants and trees with glass railings what gives a natural feel. Moreover, there's a great view at the city and Hudson River.

St Patrick's Cathedral

I couldn't miss this cathedral because I really like cathedrals like this one - impressive, high, big, in general - Gothic ones. In New York City it's a great example of Gothic Revival. The building was erected in 1879 and renovated in 2016

New York

Hi!

This time I'm writing about the most populous and the greatest city in USA - New York City. A global power city, cultural, financial and media capital of the world, with a significant impact upon entertainment, technology, commerce, education, politics, sports and research. That's a lot of "the most" I think. New York city is also famous of many great places, just like Empire State Building, Central Park, Brooklyn, Rockefeller Center, Metropolitan Museum of Art, High Line, Wall Street or, of course, a Statue of Liberty.

But what is the first thing that comes to your mind when you think "New York"? For me the answer is obvious but it doesn't have to be the same things for everyone. So, New York brings to my mind, first of all, yellow taxis in the crowded street, traffic jams between very modern skyscrapers, people who are always in a hurry, running to work with a cup of coffee in their hand, additionally very well-dressed and stylish. New York brings to my mind also Central Park with people jogging or doing some different sport, as we can see in many movies shooted in New York. I can't forget about billboards which we can see anywhere in New York City, I think, and which gives a lot of light, especially when it comes to Times Square.
What is interesting, at Times Square was the first solar powered billboard which you can see below:

And what New York City brings to your mind up first? I'm waiting for your comments :)

Next time I will describe some of the biggest New York City's attractions 😊

See you soon,

Colorado & Arizona

Hello!

As you see, I will be writing about Colorado&Arizona this time. Colorado has a diverse geography - mountains, plains, deserts with big sand dunes and deep canyons. Because of that, the climate in more complex it this state. I think it is a perfect place for nature lovers ;) Sometimes  the earthquake occurs there because of its mountainous terrain.

Arizona has an upland terrain and in north part of is a Colorado Plateau the climate in Arizona is dry, tropical and subtropical.. The temperatures are very high. The desert steppes with cactuses  are creating a plant life.

One of the biggest tourist attraction in Arizona is, of course, The Grand Canyon. It's a steep-sided canyon by the Colorado River in Arizona. The Grand Canyon is 446 km long and 29 km wide. This terrain is a Grand Canyon National Park. There are different hypothesis when it comes to the creation of this canyon. The most popular says that it was a very long process who had commenced 17 millions years ago and the canyon was becoming deeper and deeper. There is also a completely different version which says that the canyon was formed in a few days. But the most important is that today we can see an impressive huge canyon in USA!

I think it's the most noteworthy place when it comes to these regions, both very dry and desert. I think it's a great place for those who are passionate about nature.

That all for day. See you next time :)

The most popular inscription in the world

Hi!

Today's next part of California's description. So, let's continue this trip :)

Hollywood

Perfectly visible from the Lee mountain. We can only imagine how 9 white letters can create the most popular place in California where everyone would like to have a photo. In addition, this inscription is visible from almost every place in Beverly Hills. There is also the Avenue of Stars - a pavement with a brass stars with the names of famous and respected people. It's a tourist attraction since 1958.

Los Angeles

Hello!

It's a triptime! This time it's LA - a city of dreams for many people. This is a place where you can live your American Dream :) The best adjectives to describe this place? Undoubtedly luxurious, popular and hot ☀ In Los Angeles lives many artists, especially actors, singers, directors and, of course, celebrities. This place is perfect for holidays - beautiful, hot beaches, palm trees, ocean - sounds perfect, but also very expensive.

Famous Venice Beach is a must-see in LA. The same concerns a pedestrian zone - Ocean Front Walk - a place which is teeming in life, full of music, artists, in general, there's a mix of languages, cultures, races and religions.
And, of course, there is a lot of surfers in LA. Surfing is very popular right there - it's a real California lifestyle.

The centre of the city is full of skyscrapers - typical business area. However, the traffic jam is unavoidable in Los Angeles.

Beverly Hills

One of the richest quarters in USA.Very clean and perfect place, exotic vegetation, flowers and luxurious cars standing in front of every house - that's Beverly Hills. There's also a Rodeo Dive - the most expensive street in USA where you can meet a lot of celebrities doing their shopping in the best stores in the world.

Hello again!

Hi!

I'm coming back after holidays. It was a good time for me, I've started working in a new place and I've been to Cyprus - I think one of the most beautiful place in the world. I haven't spent there a long time but it was enough to see the charm of that place. I can recommend Cyprus in 100 %. Accurately, I was in Limassol and the main reason why I went there with my family was my cousin's wedding which took place on a pier. It was an amazing and unforgettable experience. It was something completely different, different climate, different wedding, different place, different world. The dream world. I wish I was there one more time, maybe not exactly in Limassol because there are another places to see as well, just like Larnaca or Nicosia - I've described those places a few months ago so you can find that post and read about Cyprus :)

When it comes to my blog, I'm going to continue California's description and many other noteworthy places in America.

See you!

California

Hello everyone!

As I said last time, I'm going to describe my favourite states in North America. The best place for me is California - sunny and hot place by the ocean is a dream. In general, California is the most populous state in US. There are two the biggest cities - San Francisco and Los Angeles. Today I'll write a little about San Francisco. So, let's start!


Alcatraz

One of the most famous prisons in the world with a strict discipline. Since years it's one of the most popular touristic attractions. The prison was active between 1934 and 1963. Reportedly, it is said that  nobody escaped from there. Officially, it is said that 14 people escaped.



Golden Gate Bridge


It's a suspension bridge, one-mile-wide and one-point-seven-mile-long channel between San Francisco Bay and the Pacific Ocean. It's very recognized symbol of San Francisco. It is said that it is "possibly the most beautiful, certainly the most photographed bridge in the world". It's very impressive for me, I would love to see that bridge.



Chinatown

The oldest Chinatown is in North America and the largest outside Asia. It's an enclave that reflect a chinese history and culture. There are two hospitals, parks, squares and many others.




That's all for today, I'll continue soon.

See you!
