I think that almost all of you have a strong believe in a God, however you name it. I am sure that this believe makes us more human, as no other creature on the Earth has such believes. This is for sure one major diference between human and animals.

That’s why I don’t miss any occasion to step in a church. Old or new, big or small, this a very peaceful thing for myself. I  have visited a lot of churches, and I loved them all. Thinking of them, and trying to evaluate them, some of them can seem very spectacular to any viewer. Here are the most spectacular and impressive churches in my opinion, and I hope that this is not a blasphemy making such classification.

1. St Basil Cathedral in Red Square, Moscow has been for centuries a landmark for the Russian capital with its coloured towers and impressive dimensions. No one can imagine Kremlin without the St. Basil Cathedral!

There are a number of places in United Kingdom that you could spend your holiday, and favorites like London, Glasgow, and Dublin often come to mind, which is why they have become such overpopulated tourist spots over the last several decades. Drawing a huge number of visitors every year, it isn’t surprising that so many have begun looking for new holiday areas to enjoy their getaways. One such area that has been becoming increasingly popular, and will good reason, is Manchester.

There are many reasons that this has become a hot spot for tourism, but one of the biggest ones is the number of accommodations that can be found for any price range. From extremely cheap rooms rented over pubs, to high end hotels that cost a hundred pounds or more a night to inhabit, the list is certainly impressive.

A few notables from every price range are:

France also has a number of fast running rivers and natural gorges that offer perfect conditions for white water rafting, such as the Isere and Dora Baltee rivers.

One of the highest mountain peaks in Europe, Mont Blanc is located in the stunning French Alps, and there are a number of excellent hiking and climbing opportunities in this area that will challenge all skill levels. Thousands of people flock to the Alps each year to scale the mountain ranges and see the breathtaking scenery, and of course there are the many famous luxury ski resorts, which take advantage of the perfect conditions for skiing and other winter sports. If you are interested in hiking and trekking there is also the Pyrenees Mountain in the south west of France, which offer some amazing views and landscapes.

Paris doesn’t mean only Tour Eiffel or luxury hotels, but much more than that. At your second visit in Paris (or even at your first, if it is longer, or you are a skilled traveler) you must strive yourself to know Paris like a pro. I found myself a few hot spots in Paris, which are not very well renowned, but are definitely worth your visit, if you really want to round your imagine about the Ville Lumiere (The city of light), as the local tenderly nickname their flamboyant residence.

1. La Defence is one of the the newest quarters of Paris. Simultaneously La Defence is very spectacular with its skyscrapers and the underground circulation. You will be amazed first time you see La Defense: it is too silent to be in Paris. You need only to take care to the hurdles of skaters, who simply love this part of the city.

Archaelogists believe that these circles were made during the Megalithic era. These circles are believed to be centers of ceremonies for the people of that time. They initially believed that the circles involved burials but no such artifacts have proven the idea conclusive.
