Evening in Rome

It is hard to imagine what is going on nowadays in Rome. But in October 2018 it was as always beautiful, pleasant and hospitable place for tourists. The following pictures showing one evening promenade around the city. Days in October are not so long this is why in just three or so hours the sunlight faded away.

Colosseum, Rome


The Colosseum is listed as one of the New7Wonders of the World.

There are two facts impressed me mostly after visiting this tourist object.

This huge and complicated engineering construction has been built just in seven years. The Colosseum is an immense work of engineering, and needed professional, skilled workers. Slaves would only have been used in the quarries to quarry the stone needed.

Nowadays we can see just skeleton of that beautiful masterpiece. It happened not just because of time and nature disasters but people. All the numerous statues and marble tiles from exterior and interior decor have been robbed by Romans to build their own palaces. Even Vatican took place in that robbery.

Only one’s imagination can draw the real view of this Architectural, Engineering and Art Masterpiece.


Notre Dame – in memory and in heart!

Notre-Dame de Paris

Heartbreaking news came from Paris today! There is no anymore Notre Dame like we saw it lately. Hard to imagine if it is possible to revive it again. Probably yes. However it will not be the same anymore. Lucky us to had an opportunity to see it in its magnificence and keep in our memory and heart forever!
