Modern man has a great opportunity to travel around the world.
Depending on your preferences, vacation can be spent on the beach, climbing the tops or, for example, exploring the most unusual cities in the world.
Unique, unique, majestic Italian city
The most unusual city in the world recognizedThe legendary Venice. Composed of 118 islands connected by 400 bridges, it completely rests on the water. However, shacks on tall stilts can not be seen here. Before the traveler stretched historical palaces, colossal cathedrals, massive buildings.
In Venice, there has never been a wheeled vehicle, andIn the early 16th century, the authorities imposed a ban on the use of horses. The movement around the city takes place exclusively on the water: on a vaporetto or a tragetto. "Travel" on the famous gondola can not afford everyone. Also in Venice you can explore on foot. However, to suddenly not find yourself in the channel, be sure to stock a detailed map and very carefully stroll in the dark.
It should be noted that Venice graduallySubmerged under water. World experts give a disappointing forecast: by 2028 the most unusual city in the world can become uninhabitable. To save the unique monuments of architecture, around the city gradually erect sealed fortifications. The project was codenamed "Moses".
Amazing cities of the world
However, there are more unusual cities in the world,Than one. For example, the competition of Venice can make Mexicaltitan. This city is also completely on the water (on an island off the coast of Mexico). However, it is inferior to Venice in terms of beauty, size and size. An unusual city in diameter is about 400 meters, built up by small houses. When the streets of the island are hidden under water, the entire population (800 people) moves to live on boats.
Another unusual city is located in Bolivia. La Paz is located in the crater of an inactive volcano. The city center is above sea level at an altitude of 3600 meters, the height of the outskirts is 4000 meters. In addition to its unique location, La Paz is distinguished by its original shopping arcades. For example, on one street travelers will meet only sports stores, on the other - souvenir shops, on the third - beauty salons. The highlight of the city is the Witches market, where you can buy all the necessary ingredients for various potions (from embryo lamas to claws of unknown origin).
Unusual cities of the world exist not only onWater or in craters of former volcanoes, but also in dangerous rocky areas. In Spain there is a unique Setenil de Las Bodegas, whose age is more than 800 years. All the houses of the city are built into the deepening in steep cliffs, which makes the place special and very spectacular.
The second similar construction is in China, inShanxi Province. Buddhist monastery with the central temple of Suankunsy literally hovered in the air against the background of sheer cliffs. The buildings of the temple complex are "imprinted" in the mountain range and are supported by supports and beams.
