Bologna towers at night

It was primarily prestigious to have your own tower in medieval Bologna. The higher and bigger the tower was, the richer was its owner. What is it for and what to do with it, didn’t matter at all. In 12-13 centuries, Bologna had 80-100 towers, according to some sources. Now the city has less than 20 towers.

On this photo you can see two most famous towers in Bologna. The higher one is Azinelli (97 m), and the lower one is Garizenda (48 m). As you can see the two towers are inclined. They are supported by special cables strung around them from collapsing.

You can climb the top of the Azinelli – it is the best observation deck overlooking the city. Do not miss the chance to see whole Bologna from the top!

Amazing fact:

Bologna is the culinary capital of Italy.

Welcome to the ranch!

Bulldog-cowboy welcomes you to our ranch!

This photo was taken spontaneously while I was driving the car in the neighbourhood of Kiev. I wasn’t even going to take photos. I had other affairs. This event proves the rule – you never know where a good shot expects you. Always take your camera with you in order not to miss great shots!

Amazing Fact:

The largest Ranch in the world is actually in Australia. The Anna Creek ranch is 5.8 Million Acres (Larger than Israel).

Rain Man

This is a philosophical sculpture of Rain Man, which during any weather looks at the sky and sees … a drop.  Nothing else, even if the sun shines brightly in this world. This is the concept – probably about the limitations an individual human being has. Dramatic sky allows to emphasise the meaning of the sculpture. This statue is located on the Landscape Avenue in the centre of Kiev. If you’re in Kiev, be sure to visit this place, it has collected a number of modern art sculptures. And there is a good observation point on Kiev too.
