Geneva is the second most popular city in Switzerland after Zurich. Its population is about 200 thousand people, and the spoken language is French, although many of the locals also speak English and German. Geneva is known for its luxury watches, chocolate and banking industries. Since I am only a fan of the chocolate, I will introduce you to the natural sights and open spaces in the city. The climate here is mild with warm summers and cold winters, and the city is surrounded by beautiful natural scenery, and numerous parks and gardens will help you spend more time outside.See more
The fountain is a huge jet of water that rises up to 140 meters into the air. The powerful pumps pump out 500 liters of water every second at a speed of 200 km/h and create a wonderful atmosphere. In good weather, a rainbow appears on the water, and it is very beautiful. The water jet can be seen from quite a distance, including from an airplane (up to 10,000 meters high). It is one of the landmarks of the city of Geneva, and it is also the highest fountain in Europe.
And do you know that it might not exist at all now, if he hadn't had to...
And here we are at the entrance of the glacier, which welcomes us with a shade of blue that I have not seen anywhere else. A deep blue that is not found in the sea or the sky. A cold breeze and ice tunnels reveal themselves in its depth.
The tunnels lead to the incredible ice sculptures with ambient lighting - polar bear, tables, throne, bar and chairs. In the glacier itself, the path is covered with a mat to prevent visitors from slipping.
You love history, wonder what nature looked like on these lands millions of years ago, are curious and like animals, then the Pliocene Park in the village of Dorkovo is the place for you! As soon as you step inside, you are transported back millennia. In the middle of the hall you will notice a huge mastodon with a height of almost four meters and tusks three and a half meters long. Hidden speakers play sounds that help you go back in time and feel the place. On the wall there is a panorama of the surrounding nature at the time of the mastodon with the typical animal and plant species. The overall feel of this place is very pleasant and despite its small area it will help you feel the place as it was, even if only for a short time. And the memory of the visit will definitely stay with you for a long time.See more
Asen Fortress is located near Asenovgrad. It is located on the rocky hill Mogilata and it has a great view from the road Asenovgrad - Smolyan. The fortress, which rises at least 100 meters above the road, was a major strategic point above the pass connecting Plovdiv with the Aegean. With its almost vertical slopes, even overhanging the river, it is inaccessible on all three sides. The excellent location and natural protection of the area has been used since the time of the Thracians, who in the V century BC. build a fortification.See more
