The Great Structures Of The World

Newgrange is the oldest religious building in the world

Newgrange – religious building in Ireland, one of the oldest structures on the planet. Built it in such a way that at dawn on the shortest day of the year – the winter solstice, the sun’s rays for a very short time illuminate the chamber at the end of a long corridor. Rays enter inside through a narrow slit, and a lucky few manage to see it live

A huge complex of Newgrange was built between 3100 and 2900 BC, that means he’s approximately 5 000 years. And it is more than 500 years older than the Pyramids the Sphinx at Giza and 1000 years older than Stonehenge. In the Neolithic period, Newgrange served as the center for conducting rites and ceremonies. Later to it were added many other sites.

The Cathedral is a work of architectural and stained glass art.

The large window has 25 meters in height and covers an area of about 250 square meters. His full name is “the Cathedral and Metropolitical Church of St Peter in York”.

The history of the Cathedral begins with a small Church built there in 627, specially for the baptism of king Edwin of Northumbria, which ten years later was renamed the Church of St. Peter.

Stonehenge in England

Mysterious megalithic stone structure of Stonehenge in England

Mysterious megalithic stone structure Stonehenge is located on Salisbury plain and is included in the list of world heritage of UNESCO. Archaeologists in our days connects this building with the druids, although many excavations pushed the creation of the monument to the early bronze or Neolithic. Most prominent is the construction of the main shaft and the main ditch, which dates to the middle of the third Millennium of a bygone era. Stonehenge looks like a huge circle, the diameter of which is about 30 meters, and the edges of which are 30 huge boulders.

On the tour you can hear the legends that directly link the appearance of the place with the name of the enchanter Merlin. But there is also the opinion put forward in the mid-17th century by famous English architect Inigo Jones that Stonehenge was built by no other than the ancient Romans. Other scholars stubbornly believe that the construction of this attraction belongs to the Germans or the doormen. Despite such predictions, a precise opinion, which was agreed to by all parties, there is still no purpose with regards to this ancient structure, nor with regards to its builders.

Tourists, as a rule, will not allow to come close to huge stones, but a small group of local tour operators allows you to get closer to him, but only early in the morning or in the evening excursions.
