The Best Places to Visit in Saint Petersburg

The most exquisite of Russian cities emphasizes itself by its special character and refined intelligence. This is St. Petersburg, Russia's second-largest city, a great centre of culture of indigenous people of the northern capital, which is often an occasion for jokes and pride. It's hard to believe, but in some places in St. Petersburg - for example, in the rush hour on the subway - you can still hear the phrase "Excuse me" and "please." 

 

St. Petersburg - perhaps the most large-scale experiment on crossing the European order and the Russian mentality. There is something about this city that gets under your skin. Many are ready to sing praises about St. Petersburg, and many would give everything to move here permanently.Others have criticized the city for gloom and depression, with the stable gray sky and shabby backyards, shocking underside of monuments of architecture of St. Petersburg. And even skeptics understand that melancholy here has a very different breed. When the heaviest clouds in gloomy afternoon creep on the golden spire of the Admiralty , it seems that even without the sun on the banks of the Neva, highly culture still exists. It's not like celebrations on the  Red Square on the background of the Asian Kremlin. Petersburg, anyway, is in Europe, well, or the "eurowindow", which so diligently the visionary Peter I chopped. The Russian Emperor was very kind to their offspring. He personally chose the site for the Nevsky prospect , thought should be where Peter and Paul Fortress  was. Trying to be "trending", with an eye to Venice and Amsterdam , Peter planned to ensnare a city network of canals and issued a decree according to which all the buildings - a hitherto unprecedented case in Russia - were to be built only in stone. Foreign guides, waving away the noisy Moscow , on the pages of Peter put forward in the first place. And hit the target. While the capital is choked with traffic jams , Petersburg City has lots of cheap and tolerable houses, a nice hotel near the Five corners, where it is already possible to climb on the enormous St. Isaac's Cathedral ,  "Aurora"  deck and to get lost in the labyrinths of the "Hermitage" . The notorious "spirit of St Petersburg" is legendary, but even if we expand it to chemical elements, we shall not reveal the secret. For some, Peter is  Baroque architecture of Rastrelli for someone else the chants of "Zenith" fans or gatherings at the "Idiot" restaurant. But the constant attribute of the Petersburg atmosphere is the fresh sea breeze, of numerous islands in the Neva delta. 

The city's white nights are legendary.Not in vain, St. Petersburg was known as the "Venice of the North".During the first World War was named Petrograd and after in hounour of the revolutionary Vladimir Lenin was re-named Leningrad.

A monument to all Lovers

A sculpture is an art form. Its works have physically material, product volume and three-dimensional shape, placed in real space. The main protagonists of a sculpture are people and wildlife images. The main genres of the sculpture are the portrait, historical, mythological, personal, symbolic, allegorical images, and the figure of animals. The materials used are metal, stone, clay, wood, plaster, and other modern fabrics.

 

The sculpture exists since the ancient times. At that period they represented people and animals. Nowadays, the sculptures are widely used to attract crowds of tourists in each city. That’s why some of them are totally different from the antique sites. They are so strange. They make you to think that the sculptor is totally crazy. But certainly this makes you curious that you want to see the sculpture.

 

There are a lot of monuments and sculptures in the world. But not all of them are worth to be visited or seen, although they represent true masterpieces. They all are made by famous people, sculptors, and painters. But not the name of their builders gives them the fame.

According to some statistics, the sculptures that seem to be very strange, gain the love and the attention of the public.

Shiveluch in The Best Volcanoes to Visit in the World
Shiveluch

A volcano is a geological structure more or less complex, which is generated in the earth for the ascent of the molten rock called magma formed beneath or within the Earth's crust . A volcano is formed by a non-visible internal structure of the crust including magma chamber , magma pipes and a visible structure. More commonly, the term volcano refers only to the outside and the visible part to the right of the volcanic relief , more or less conical, consisting of all those materials, liquid, solid or gaseous fuels, which were issued from the craters during the various stages of the eruption of the volcano itself. The masses of rocks which form a volcano are called igneous rocks , as derived from the cooling of the magma ascended from the Earth . The shape and the height of a volcano depend on several factors including the age of the volcano, the type of the eruptive activity, the type of the released magma and the characteristics of the underlying volcanic structure. In general volcanoes are discontinuities in the Earth's crust through which all various events and magmatic endogenous products: powders, gases, vapors and solid volcanic material is casted. The release of this material is erupting and the erupted materials are lava , ash , gas , slag and various water vapors . On the surface, 90% are submarine volcanoes (mostly located along the dorsal mid-ocean), while about 1500 volcanoes are now active on land.

 

Description

 

What is commonly called a volcano, technical terminology is defined in the volcano or volcanic cone , but since the term most used is the volcano. The volcano is often named in geology . The volcanoes testify to the existence, in the deep zones of the lithosphere , the molten masses of silicate are called natural magmas . A generic volcano is formed by:

 a magma chamber or a magma basin, fed by magma , when it is empty after an eruption. A volcano may collapse and create a caldera . The magma chambers are located between 10 and 50 km depth in the lithosphere .

 a stack or a duct volcanic main crossing point of the magma from the magma chamber to the surface.

 a crater summit, where the main pipe flows.

 one or more secondary ducts, which, flowing from the flanks of the volcano or the same basis, give life to the secondary cones.

 lateral cracks, fractures on the longitudinal side of the volcano, caused by the pressure of the magma. They allow the escape of lava in the form of eruption.

 

For their grandeur of the event the volcanoes are an object of admiration, of fear, of curiosity and of study since the antiquity with different interpretations created to explain its origin. Plato admitted the existence of an underground river of fire. Seneca indicated as the cause of eruptions and earthquakes, the penetration of water into the ground, when the water reached the incandescent matter, vapors under high pressure. In 79 AD ,Pliny the Younger described the eruption of Vesuvius that buried Pompeii , Herculaneum and Stabiae. But the real science that studies volcanoes, the volcanology ,was born only in the seventeenth century , when the naturalists were interested in the eruptions of Vesuvius ( in 1631 ) and of Etna ( in 1669 ). This science is more decisive in progress with the studies of Spallanzani and then in the nineteenth century , with the help of petrography . The origin of volcanoes is explained by various theories, including two important, but opposite theories:

 the theory of craters of lifting De Buch ;

 the theory of external accumulation of Scrope and Spallanzani .

In the theory of De Buch, volcanoes would have originated from the magma which would raise the outer layers of the Earth forming the cone, which then would break up to form the craters. In the second theory, the volcanoes would be due to the accumulation of the solid material emitted or projected from the volcanic conduit. The heat that is produced inside exerts a pressure evenly over the crust, thinner where the magma would surrender, letting it , causing the birth of the volcanoes.

 

The classification of volcanoes

 

The volcanoes can be classified according to the type of external device or the type of the volcanic eruptions, both of these characteristics being closely linked to the composition of the magma and the magma chamber (and thus emitting lava). This classification is called Lacroix Classification by the French geologist Alfred Lacroix who first conceived.

 

Depending on the type of the volcanic external apparatus

 

Considering the type of the volcanic cone there are 2 types of volcanoes:

1. Shield volcanoes

2. Cone volcanoes

 

Shield volcanoes

 

A shield volcano has moderately sloping sides, and it is built by the eruption of the lava basalt fluid. The basaltic lava tends to build enormous cones low slope, because its low viscosity allows it to slide smoothly on the ground or under it, in the lava tubes, up to many kilometers without significant cooling. The major volcanoes of the world are the shield volcanoes. The name comes from the same geometry, which makes them look like shields resting on the ground. The largest shield volcano in the world is in Hawaii , its name is Mauna Loa . It measures about 4000 m above the sea level , but its base is located at 5000 feet below the sea level, so its actual height is of 9000 meters, while its base diameter is about 250 km.

 

Cone volcanoes

 

We find a volcano cone when the lava is acidic. In these cases, the magma is very viscous and it is difficult to trace, solidifying quickly once outside. Emissions flow and alternate with the solid material that is shot out and alternate with the cast, as the layers of the building. The eruptions of this type can be very violent (like that of Vesuvius that buried Pompeii ), because the magma tends to obstruct the volcanic chimney creating a "cap" only when the internal pressures are sufficient to overcome the obstruction, the eruption resumed ( the eruption of Vulcan type), but in extreme cases there may be an explosion that may come to destroy the entire volcano ( Peleus). The volcanism of this type is present along the continental margin of the pits or arc-trench systems, where the magma comes from the crust where the rocks are more of an exogenous composition.

 

Depending on the type of the eruptive activity

 

Broadly speaking we distinguish red volcanoes (volcanoes characterized by effusive emissions in which the accumulation of the volcanic lava flows gives the building looks "reddish brown"), and gray volcanic (eruptions of volcanoes with explosive character in which the accumulation of ash give the building looks gray-black volcanic). Specifically, considering the type and the power of the eruption of a volcano you have:

1. Hawaiian volcanoes in eruption type

2. Volcanoes in eruption of Icelandic type

3. Strombolian volcanoes in eruption type

4. Volcano eruption at Vulcan type

5. Volcano eruption at Vesuvius type

6. Plinian eruptions at volcanoes and Pelean type

7. Large calderas ("super-volcanoes")

 

Hawaiian Type

 

 

The eruptions are not related to the tectonic movements that are due to the plaque but rather to see the phenomena the magma plumes from the back to warm up the hot spots. The summit of the volcano is occupied by a large depression called caldera , bounded by steep walls due to the collapse of the fund. Others occur within the caldera collapses, creating a well structure .The lava is very basic and therefore very fluid, it produces the typical volcanic edifices form a "shield , with weak slopes of the mountains.

 

Icelandic type

 

They are also called volcanic fissure eruptions which occur through long slits and not by a circular crater. The casting, basic and the ultra basic magmas fed by, tend to form the highland basalt (basalt plateaus). At the end of an eruption fissure (or linear), the eruptive fissure may disappear since it is covered by lava and solidified spill, does not reappear until the next eruption. The best examples are found in Iceland , from which the special designation of the type, an excellent example of the Icelandic volcano eruption is that of Laki of 1783 , one of the most famous volcanic eruptions in the history of the European Union .

 

Strombolian type

 

Very viscous basaltic magmas give rise to an enduring characterized by emissions at regular intervals and fragments of lava fountains that reach hundreds of meters high, and the launch of lava and volcanic bombs. The fallout of these products creates scoria cones from the quite steepides . Stromboli , the island-volcano from which it takes its name, this kind of effusive activity, has been in business for two millennia, much to be known, since the time of the earliest civilizations as the " lighthouse of the Mediterranean . "

 

Type Vulcan

 

They were named after the island of Vulcano in the archipelago of the Aeolian Islands . They are explosive eruptions during which lava bombs release clouds of gas and ash laden. The explosions can produce fractures, ruptures of the crater and the opening of lateral vents.

 

Vesuvius type

 

From the name of the volcano Vesuvius , it is similar to the Vulcan, but with the difference that the initial explosion is tremendously violent enough to drain most of the magma chamber: the magma from deep zones, then back up at high speed out of the crater and dissolve in tiny droplets. When this type of eruption is at its most violent it is called Plinian eruption (in honor of Pliny the Younger who first described the course in 79 AD).

 

Plinian type

 

The eruptions are produced by very viscous magma . Hot clouds are frequently formed from gas and pulverized lava. They are very dangerous eruptions ending usually with partial or total collapse of the volcano or the release of a plug of lava that of a volcanic plug or dome . In some cases both phenomena occur. The volcanic eruption that exhibits this behavior are characterized by the shape of a cone. These eruptions are named for Pliny the Younger who first described this type of eruption observing the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD, which submerged Pompeii and Herculaneum in ashes . A variant is the Plinian eruption : if during a Plinian eruption the main body of the glowing cloud released from the crater summit during an eruption peleana (which takes its name from the volcano 's Pelee in Martinique ) , the volcano erupts from the crater, but not centrally splitting up the side of the volcano. This eruption has devastating effects concentrated in the direction of the main eruption of a glowing cloud that can reach more than 20 km from the building volcanic (as happened in 1980 in the eruption of St. Helens ). Other variants of the Plinian eruptions are the ultra-plinian : these eruptions are characterized for having an even bigger explosion, which may come to completely destroy the volcanic edifice (it is an example of the Krakatoa or Santorini ), and above all for the enormous amount of the released volcanic ash. The explosion of this type, based on the large amount of ash that remains in suspension in the atmosphere, has a greater or lesser impact on the global climate in the years following the eruption.

 

Large calderas

 

Although not recognized as true volcanoes, they deserve a separate mentioning: the case of 7-8 large calderas identified on the surface. These structures are characterized by not having a volcano rather than a depression of volcanic origin (known as Caldera), which covers a vast area, more than 10-15 km. Inside the caldera, you can see the development of various craters formed more or less. It was never observed an eruption of this type of calderas (which have periods of eruption of hundreds of thousands of years) and these areas are now subject only to a minor type of volcanism (geysers, fumaroles, hot springs, ... ). The best known examples of this type of equipment is the park of Yellowstone , The Phlegraean Fields , the Alban Hills , the Toba Lake .

 

Activities of volcanoes

 

The magma rises through the mantle or less dense than the Earth's crust because of the surrounding rocks (lifts for buoyancy ). During the ascent, due to the decrease in pressure , the gases dissolved in the melt dissolve a further decrease of the density . The magma in the crust can build up, to cool and solidify, or climb up to the surface of the earth thus giving rise to an eruption . The eruptions may be of different types: they can give rise to explosive phenomena, where ash and lapilli are projected up to tens of kilometers above the crater and deposited up to hundreds of miles away from the eruptive center, or effusive, if the magma flows, forming a lava flow that propagates to shorter distances (tens of meters to a few km from the eruptive center). One of the characteristics that influences the type of the eruption is the viscosity of the magma, which depends on the content of silicon , which binds with the oxygen molecules that form always tend to bond with each other and form indestructible chains. If the magma has more than 60% silica [SiO2] it is considered viscous and more likely to give rise to an explosive eruption, but if the magma has less than 50% silica it is likely to be erupted with dynamic and effusive emitted lava as flows.

 

Here is a presentation of the most famous and the most popular volcanoes in the world. Of course, I referred to their power of eruption, their activity and their beautiful environment provided to visitors. Volcanoes represent huge interest to people, not only for the fact that they are dangerous but for many other reasons too. Discover the most famous volcanoes in the world.

St. Basil’s Cathedral in The Most Unusual Churches in the World
St. Basil’s Cathedral

A church is an architectural structure designed for the sermons and religious ceremonies in Orthodoxy, Catholicism and Protestantism. The main city or monastery church is commonly called the cathedral.

Each religion has its own churches or cathedrals. A lot of years had to pass in the past until a church was built. But if it was finally constructed, it became a true architectural and cultural monument. Years passed and some of them are ruined, others are closed, but others are still visited by Christians.

All the old churches and cathedrals became amazing tourist attractions, no matter if it is decaying or not. For a lot of people these old religious buildings are saint. That’s why they come to see them not just for entertaining and photos, but also to enrich their souls, to clear their minds, and to approach God.

Each church or cathedral is built in a special style representing an architectural monument. That’s why there are simple religious buildings, but there are also strange and unusual, from the architectural point of view, religious constructions.


St. Basil's Cathedral is an Orthodox church, located on the Red Square, Moscow. It is a famous Russian architecture monument. It was usually called the Trinity as the original wooden temple was dedicated to the Holy Trinity till the XVII century. It was also known as "Jerusalem". Currently, St. Basil's Cathedral is a branch of the State Historical Museum. It is inc ...

The Amur River in The Longest Rivers in the World
The Amur River

We live in a world blessed with sights that are beautiful beyond words. Everyone dreams to visit at least one of these places. Those who live in modern cities with tall buildings tend to lose what Mother Nature has to offer. They say "beauty is in the eye of the beholder," and there are probably many places that you consider to be most important in the world.

 

To our mind, rivers are very important and they offer splendid, natural views that Mother Nature offers. Water is one of the most precious natural resources , we cannot live without it. Globally, water supplies are rare: less than 1% of the world's water is good for consumption, and much of it, 2/3 of the Earth’s surface is covered by rivers and salt waters. A river is formed from the union of several streams which naturally flow downhill , under the effect of gravity , which either flows into another stream or river ( its tributary ) or in a lake , a sea or an ocean .

 

For this reason we do not pretend that our list of places included are the most beautiful, but rather among the vast collection of the  longest and the  largest rivers in the world.

1 - Nile - 6600 km, the most beautiful areas of the basin downstream waterways are in Aswan.

2 - Amazon - 6480 km, the largest river basin in the world, cruises are up to Iquitos.

3 - Yang Tse Kiang - 6300 km downstream from the dam cruises.

4 - Mississippi - 6280 km, one in four Americans living around the pool's third largest river in the world, every city on its banks proposes at least one cruise.

5 - Yenissei - 5540 km, navigable by small portions, is the longest in Russia.

6 - Huang He (Yellow River) - 5464, with most cruises in China.

7 - Ob Irtchych - 5410 km, one of the 120 rivers that cross Russia.

8 - Congo - 4800 km, the second largest river basin in the world that flows, in sequence with Amazon, African adventure for the brave.

9 - Amur - 4500 km, navigable river, it crosses Russia and China.

10 - Lena - 4400 km, the most eastern of Russian rivers, crosses Siberia from the south to the north and it is one of the most fascinating deltas.

 

For the lovers of amazing sceneries, these rivers can be the perfect destinations and the cruises the most wonderful experiences. Cruises have always aroused the curiosity of people even if not everyone can afford such a trip. If the desire to live new sensations, schedule your vacation early next year and choose a destination that allows you to take a cruise on one of the longest rivers in the world.

The main genres of the sculpture are the portrait, historical, mythological, personal, symbolic, allegorical images, and the figure of animals. The materials used are metal, stone, clay, wood, plaster, and other modern fabrics.

 

The sculpture exists since the ancient times. At that period they represented people and animals. Nowadays, the sculptures are widely used to attract crowds of tourists in each city. That’s why some of them are totally different from the antique sites. They are so strange. They make you to think that the sculptor is totally crazy. But certainly this makes you curious that you want to see the sculpture.

 

There are a lot of monuments and sculptures in the world. But not all of them are worth to be visited or seen, although they represent true masterpieces. They all are made by famous people, sculptors, and painters. But not the name of their builders gives them the fame. It is hard to explain sometimes why a sculpture is the most visited, and another is not considered as the main tourist site. Tourists choose by themselves what should be seen and what should not. According to some statistics, the sculptures that seem to be very strange, gain the love and the attention of the public.

Enjoy your life spending great time admiring the craziest and the strangest sculptures you have ever seen.


A monument to the Chizhyk-Pyzhik was installed in St. Petersburg on November 19, 1994. This is one of the smallest sites in the world.   The monument represents a small bird standing on a small pedestal. The singularity of this monument is that it is installed on the reverse side of the embankment. The unusual monument is loved by the local people an ...


The Giant Geyser, Kamchatka in The Most Impressive Geysers on the Earth
The Giant Geyser, Kamchatka

Geyser ( Geysir , the name of one of the sources of " Golden Ring ", from the Islandic geysa - gush) is a source periodically ejecting fountains of hot water and steam. Geysers are one of the manifestations of later stages of volcanism , and common areas of modern volcanic activity provided by hydrogeological conditions. Being an intermittent hot water spring and vapor, volcanic, throwing water at regular intervals, to the sea lifting time form of a column, a geyser occurs if the activity of a volcano is at a late stage.

 

Large assets of geysers in the world are few , but they are of a rare beauty and fascination. They are a pride and remarkable natural phenomena for the states where they are situated . No matter what shape, cone-like or like fountains, geysers are rare as they need an almost perfect balance of heat and water conditions and the right rock and channeling.

 

Best spots of geysers in the world

 

There are few best spots of geysers in the world. There are only about a thousand geysers in the world situated on some major geothermal areas with geysers force on the Earth: Yellowstone Plateau in the U.S. A. (where it is concentrated about half of all existing geysers), Iceland, New Zeeland( 58 geysers), Kamchatka, Chile, Papua New Guinea ( 38 active geysers), Indonesia( Sumatra Island – 17 geysers), Eastern Africa ( 6 geysers), China ( 10 geysers), Japan ( 4 geysers), Ethiopia and Kenya( very few).

 

Europeans first learned about the Icelandic geysers in the thirteenth century. Yellowstone geysers were far from the civilized world until of the first decade of the nineteenth century. John Colter ‘s stories were perceived as nonsense for too long time. It took more than fifty years, unless specific expedition with the participation of artists and photographers convinced people of the existence of the world's largest geyser fields in the super-giant caldera of the dormant. In 1872, Yellowstone geysers were under the protection of the world's first national park. In 1850, a missionary from R. Taylor became aware of the geysers in New Zealand. It was only in 1941 that is only recently in historical terms, has been committed by one of the last great geographical discoveries on the planet. Thegeologist T. Ustinova and the conductor Alexander Krupenin, apparently, were the first humans to set foot on the shore of the river called Geyser.

 

What threatens the geysers? How long do they live? In some parts of the world geothermal geysers are simply former constructions. In the 19th century , New Zealand North Island had five major geyser fields, which erupted about 220 geysers, now it has only 58 geysers, some of them quite small. The reasons for the disappearance of New Zealand's geysers are different : natural disasters (volcanic eruption of Tarawera, changes on the groundwater levels), the drilling for the construction of thermal power plants, flooding during the construction of hydroelectric power. The most powerful geyser on the Earth , Waimangu existed in New Zealand from 1899 to 1904. With each eruption, it threw about 800 tons of water and trapped many jet stones raised by half a kilometer high. There are even cases of death, found themselves too close to the erupting from the giant. But Waimangu stopped working due to the lower water levels in the nearby lake.

 

Geysers are valuable destinations in the world. A fascinating circuit where you can live unforgettable moments is visiting spectacular attractions such as the mysterious geysers. They offer fascinating landscapes where majestic volcanoes and impressive lava formations are found together. If you are a geyser fan, we offer a selection of the most beautiful and largest geysers in the world.

The geysers are not inferior in height and strength in comparison with the water ...

The Great Moscow Circus- the best attraction in the world

 A circus is the best decoration of the school vacation. It is like a  perpetual holiday. It is bright, elegant, alluring and attractive. It is very hard to say what circus is the best or most powerful in the world. Every circus has its special shows and it is different from each other.

The Moscow International Film Festival in The Best Film Festivals in the World
The Moscow International Film Festival

Watching a movie at the cinema with friends is the best way to relieve yourself from the daily stress, but for the lovers of films, a movie is not enough to create such pleasure that defies fun in itself. For those who want a dramatic set-up or romantic and exotic tone movies, the film festivals are the ideal choice. A weekend or two weeks of films accompanied by local party creates a relaxing holiday in the most exciting cities in the world that are a perfect destination in itself.

 

The Film festivals are as luxurious as the beautiful cities that emerge in the brightest stars at the film premieres and parties."The most exciting of such festivals is that you can watch videos continuously, from eight to two in the morning," said Jennifer Holt, assistant professor of media studies and film at the University of California, Santa Barbara, quoted by Forbes. But that's not all: the crowd of fans who enjoy the experience make you quickly integrate with the non-stop movie madness. "Each film has an impressive audience, even at midnight. You are surrounded by people, on all sides who share the same passion: films. It’s so interesting that they forget to eat or sleep," continued Holt. What surprises the audience is that at the film festivals in Cannes, Berlin and Toronto are premieres. Telluride Film Festival, a ski resort in the mountains of Colorado, has public movies that were not previously run in American cinemas.

 

I warmly welcome all lovers of film festivals and I want to say that the main goal of a festival is to increase interaction between various cultures and strengthen friendly relations between them involving its citizens to new works by talented, contemporary authors, performers and creative teams. I hope this information will be one of the most important and it will let you know about many memorable events.
