Some Outstanding Places of Great Britain
(Достопримечательности Великобритании)
It has become a tradition to start sightseeing of some country from its capital. London is an ancient city with rich cultural achievements. Such sights as the Tower, the Houses of Parliament, Westminster, Trafalgar Square and Piccadilly circus are well known in the world. Besides these you are sure to have heard about the British Museum and the National Gallery in which the collections of genuine works of art are exhibited. Besides the capital of the country there are many other places and regions which are worth speaking about and seeing. One of them is the most beautiful part of G.B. — Wales, which is famous for its mountains and valleys. It's an ideal place for spending your vacations. Some people choose Snowdonia, a national park around Snowdon, the highest peak of the Welsh Mountains. Wales has often been called the Land of Songs. One of the Welsh traditions is festivals. The Welsh sing their songs, wear their traditional clothes in their capital Cardiff as well as in the other parts of the country. They say if you visit Great Britain you must visit the City of Bath, the splendid monument to the elegance and good taste of the 18-th century. The city took its name from the Roman bath, which can be seen in the heart of the city. I don't think there is a person in the world who hasn't heard about Oxford and Cambridge, known as the most ambitious university cites They consist of a number of colleges which are autonomous parts of the University. They have their own press centers, which impress everyone who has a chance of seeing them. To visit the country without visiting Stratford-on-Avon is unimaginable. The things that attract people's attention are the places connected with the name of William Shakespeare: the house where he was born, the Grammar School where he studied, the little cottage near Stratford where his wife, Anne Hathaway lived as girl. But to my mind the biggest attraction is the Royal Shakespeare Theatre. One of the most beautiful and interesting part of Great Britain is Scotland; especially the region usually called Highlands. The tourists go to Scotland to see its beautiful lakes (called «lochs»). Loch Lomond one of the largest, the most beautiful Scottish lakes is situated near the West Coast. Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland, is the beautiful and the old city. The first thing you see in it is the Rock, a very large hill in the middle of the city. The Edinburgh Castle stands on it. The Castle looks like a castle from a fairy-tale and parts of it are more than a thousand years old. Scottish national and musical festivals are held there.
