Why Singapore is one of the dream destinations



Singapore is the southernmost city of Continental Asia, and any plan you have without 15-16 hours of flight with at least one stopover and an investment of at least € 500 if you hunt an offer. But he does all the money, even more than that. "Drinking, possession, or trafficking in drugs is a serious offense to the state and punished with death," says the senior crew chief before landing at Changi Airport, ranked the world's most modern. With death by hanging, if details are needed. Cases are isolated and if you have clean thoughts, you really have nothing to worry about in the city considered the safest in the world.

Singapore has only 5.6 million inhabitants, but it is a busy metropolis because its surface is not very large. It has only 700 square kilometers, making the 19th-largest city state the smallest state in the world. From here, and the exorbitant price of housing, a two-room apartment but crammed, because almost all apartments are tiny, and can easily exceed the million dollars. But the city is economically prosperous, being one of the world's most powerful financial and commercial centers. How did the singers get to live so well? Through work, a lot of work, but also organization, investment and strategy. During the Second World War, the country was conquered by the Japanese, who destroyed almost everything, for which reason a reconstruction of the foundations was needed. "Our only chance is to work as much as possible," he told the Chinese, who formed the country's major population, the first post-war leader. Work has also meant reducing the number of hours and days, but also creating a strict legal education system for the population to provide the country with a healthy climate so that people can concentrate on work. In this context, the imposition of a Spartan education also has the law prohibiting spitting on the street, which has become famous all over the world. Now, no one should imagine that if you are slaves, in the second second, you will be surrounded by policemen who will either fine you or arrest you. No matter what, even the presence of the police is extremely discreet. The discipline rules are just an invitation to be civilized, under the threat of a sanction that starts at 500 SGP (1 Singapore dollar - 0.65 euro) and can reach up to 2,000 but is rarely implemented .

As a city, Singapore is a successful blend of Manhattan skyscrapers, the charm of old London buildings and the effervescence of Asia. All in a real urban jungle, for its own, because Singapore is a city flooded with greenery, with palm trees and other equatorial trees, planted everywhere. The green is so cruel that even an Irish would be envious, and it is also maintained by the heavy rains that fall from the climate. Just 137 kilometers from the Equator, Singapore has hot weather all year round, with temperatures that are rarely falling below 25 degrees, but also with rapid and intense rains. It laughs for 15-20 minutes to say that the earth breaks, and then the sun comes out and in half an hour it's dry. The most rainy months are November and December, and the driest is February. Since it was an English colony, British influence is felt everywhere. All locals speak English, all inscriptions are in English and then in Chinese, and cars have the right wheel. The city has many tourist attractions and is a destination that will never demo, because, not by accident, it has been designated the most intelligent city of the world. He can be beaten without difficulty, but there is a subway, and not a subway, but an ultra-efficient metro, able to ensure fast and cheap transport to all areas. The taxi option is quite expensive because Singapore is an expensive city, sometimes even very expensive. As a curiosity, there are no used cars in Singapore. Any automobile older than five years is returned to the dealer and resells it in Malaysia or Indonesia. Authorities oppose the possession and use of personal cars to limit pollution as far as possible and offer impeccable alternatives to public transport. In Singapore, the city is well-known for its very high standard of living. According to statistics, a worker earns around 4,500 net Singapore dollars, and corporates also reach 10,000 SGPs per month. The state has set up a motivating system for chiefs of large companies, which can take a million dollars a year, provided it produces ten times that amount.

The main attraction in the city is Marina Bay, where there is a huge shopping mall, many of which are accessible only to cards loaded with many zeros in the front queue, but also to the hotel with the same name, the only one in the world that has a large airplane pool. The builders built three impressive buildings near the water's edge, which they then joined to the last level through an air bridge, represented by a mega-cat. The project belongs to a Canadian architect, of Israeli origin, Moshe Safdie, and the hotel was inaugurated in 2010, with a year behind schedule. From the pool on the 55th floor you can see the whole city and you feel like you're up at the height of the skyscrapers. Access is only allowed to those staying in the hotel where the room price is about $ 500 per night. But you can do a tour of the hotel, which includes a walk through the swimming pool, where you can see a small part of it. The resort is full of expensive shops and has a casino. In the evening, a game of lights and music unfolds in front of some of the most spectacular fountains in the world.

Opposite Marina Bay is the Merlion, the symbol of the city, a half lion statue, half a fish that throws water out of the mouth and in front of which all tourists take pictures and because it is one of the few objectives you have free access to. From Merlion you can go to the mini-river on the main canal of the Singapore River, the $ 18 race, the vapors passing under the bridges of many multi-storey buildings that give the feeling that it squeaks the sky. On the water's edge, in the area called Quay Boat, it is full of English terraces and pubs, crowded especially in the evenings, when corporates get out of work. Prices are not small, the cheapest 330 ml beer costs $ 7, but as I said before, in Singapore they are doing well

The other side of Marina Bay is another great place. Gardens by the Bay emerged from the desire of an organization to turn Singapore, a city that has a 23% share of green space. It has an area of ​​101 hectares and is an oasis of relaxation for both locals and tourists. The park consists of three gardens, Bay South Garden, Bay East Garden and Bay Central Garden, and annually records more than 30 million visitors. The view is wonderful both in the day, but especially in the night, when everything is lit and the place has a special charm.

Sentosa Island is the pride of the singapore when it comes to fun. An island located a few kilometers from the city, which you can reach either by express train, by cable car or even on foot, passing a bridge. Sentosa is the paradise of amateurs of strong sensation, and the point of resistance is where everybody can fly. For $ 89, you come into a simulation and float like you've been in the hole, properly equipped. The sensation makes all the money. The island also has Waterpark, Universal Studios, where you can see scenes from famous films, a teleferic, shops, karting, restaurants, terraces, some hotels, but also some absolutely beautiful beaches with white sand, palm trees and a water clearer than the sky above it. At least one day on Sentosa Island you should not miss the schedule of any tourist who goes to Singapore. If you do not have a beach breeze and you miss the snow, there's no problem. Snow City is where winter is at home. All you have to do is take the subway to Jurong Station and with $ 15 an hour you can feel like the North Pole. I pray, it's just that cold, but reasonable for a winter day.

Not far from the center of the metropolis there is a neighborhood where the rules of the singaporeans have more theoretical value. It's Little India, the Indian community neighborhood, which is not a small number. The state opened the gates for the Indians, which now form 9% of the country's population, needing cheap construction workforce, and grouping them all into a neighborhood where they work according to their customs. Here are the shops and even the malls of commodity in India, the traders of merchants who sell anything, restaurants with Indian food, Hindu temples, where people pray to their gods, and markets where they gather in the evening and look, , to Indian movies, murmuring in chorus when the action demands it. All this in a landscape where the $ 500 fine applicable to those who throw garbage on the street has the value of a bench. Authorities close their eyes, provided the Indians do not scatter the rules outside their perimeter. Quite close to Little India is Chinatown, which no longer requires presentation, but also the Arabic street, thus encompassing the cultural and religious multitude of the cosmopolitan metropolis where 39% of the population comes from other countries.

Another point of interest on the city map is the zoo, one with the best recommendations around the world. The base entry costs $ 22, but if you want to see the panda bears, you have to take another $ 5 from your pocket, if you want an elephant walk, another $ 8, and so on. In addition to a huge variety of animals, the Singapore Zoo proposes a night safari among the creatures and a water safari where you ride a boat in a jungle that reproduces both the Amazonian and the African or Asian. Both deserve all the 25 dollars that you have to pay extra.

Singapore can be a paradise and for tourists willing to take their hand deep into shopping pocket. The main shopping artery is Orchard Road, but the city has around 50 malls, probably the largest mall in the world, where you can find companies from the luxurious Armani, Prada, Gucci and others to the most accessible, like Zara or H & M. Scuba enthusiasts can meet their tastes in Chinatown, Little India or in the Bugis area, full of stalls. Chinese food or fast food Being a state with predominantly Chinese population, the Singapore cuisine is much like the Chinese one, being spicy and rich in sharp odors. Very popular are the so-no- food-court bribes, huge halls where you can find food from all corners of the world, but overwhelmingly from Asia, at reasonable prices, 15-20 dollars a lunch. The places are clean, but you eat together, you smell together. Those who do not feel the sensation have fast-food: Mc Donald's, Burger King, KFC, Subway, where they eat the same food as the food court, but a little more expensive than ours. And for those with a handshake there are many restaurants, with food from all over the world, where a meal costs you 100 dollars. Very popular are the terraces in the port area, where fish and seafood are served. You can choose from the aquarium what's going to be in your dish over 20 minutes. The drink is expensive in Singapore due to the high alcohol taxes, but there are beers and wine and whiskey and everything else at both restaurants and the supermarket plus the 7 Eleven Japanese unit units present from 50 to 50 of meters. Attention, however, that the alcoholic beverages are sold only until 22.30.

Singapore means the City of the Lions, a denomination derived from the words Singa (leu) and pure (city), both of Malay. Legend has it that a Sumatra prince would have landed there after a storm and would have given his eyes a lion. But as Lei never existed in this part of the world, it was probably a tiger. The Singapore visa is taken at the airport, it's free and it's been granted for a period of 90 days. Transport to the city center is easy and costs the metro, 2.60 SGP. The road takes about 40 minutes. Singapore accommodation is expensive: a 3-star hotel room costs 100 euros per night, but there are also hostels where it's a lot cheaper.

One of the attractions of the city is the National Orchid Garden, an orchid garden, absolutely impressive, located in a corner of the Botanical Garden. Singapore has a very intense nightlife, with many clubs and restaurants open late in the night. Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles is the founder of the state, and the statue of the Englishman, who landed there in 1819, is where he first traveled in the Museum of Civilizations. Hotel Raffles is also a tourist spot.

Since it was an English colony, British influence is felt everywhere. All locals speak English, all inscriptions are in English and then in Chinese, and cars have the right wheel. The city has many tourist attractions and is a destination that will never demo, because, not by accident, it has been designated the most intelligent city of the world. He can be beaten without difficulty, but there is a subway, and not a subway, but an ultra-efficient metro, able to ensure fast and cheap transport to all areas. The taxi option is quite expensive because Singapore is an expensive city, sometimes even very expensive. As a curiosity, there are no used cars in Singapore. Any automobile older than five years is returned to the dealer and resells it in Malaysia or Indonesia. Authorities oppose the possession and use of personal cars to limit pollution as far as possible and offer impeccable alternatives to public transport. In Singapore, the city is well-known for its very high standard of living. According to statistics, a worker earns around 4,500 net Singapore dollars, and corporates also reach 10,000 SGPs per month. The state has set up a motivating system for chiefs of large companies, which can take a million dollars a year, provided it produces ten times that amount.

The main attraction in the city is Marina Bay, where there is a huge shopping mall, many of which are accessible only to cards loaded with many zeros in the front queue, but also to the hotel with the same name, the only one in the world that has a large airplane pool. The builders built three impressive buildings near the water's edge, which they then joined to the last level through an air bridge, represented by a mega-cat. The project belongs to a Canadian architect, of Israeli origin, Moshe Safdie, and the hotel was inaugurated in 2010, with a year behind schedule. From the pool on the 55th floor you can see the whole city and you feel like you're up at the height of the skyscrapers. Access is only allowed to those staying in the hotel where the room price is about $ 500 per night. But you can do a tour of the hotel, which includes a walk through the swimming pool, where you can see a small part of it. The resort is full of expensive shops and has a casino. In the evening, a game of lights and music unfolds in front of some of the most spectacular fountains in the world.

Opposite Marina Bay is the Merlion, the symbol of the city, a half lion statue, half a fish that throws water out of the mouth and in front of which all tourists take pictures and because it is one of the few objectives you have free access to. From Merlion you can go to the mini-river on the main canal of the Singapore River, the $ 18 race, the vapors passing under the bridges of many multi-storey buildings that give the feeling that it squeaks the sky. On the water's edge, in the area called Quay Boat, it is full of English terraces and pubs, crowded especially in the evenings, when corporates get out of work. Prices are not small, the cheapest 330 ml beer costs $ 7, but as I said before, in Singapore they are doing well

The other side of Marina Bay is another great place. Gardens by the Bay emerged from the desire of an organization to turn Singapore, a city that has a 23% share of green space. It has an area of ​​101 hectares and is an oasis of relaxation for both locals and tourists. The park consists of three gardens, Bay South Garden, Bay East Garden and Bay Central Garden, and annually records more than 30 million visitors. The view is wonderful both in the day, but especially in the night, when everything is lit and the place has a special charm.

Sentosa Island is the pride of the singapore when it comes to fun. An island located a few kilometers from the city, which you can reach either by express train, by cable car or even on foot, passing a bridge. Sentosa is the paradise of amateurs of strong sensation, and the point of resistance is where everybody can fly. For $ 89, you come into a simulation and float like you've been in the hole, properly equipped. The sensation makes all the money. The island also has Waterpark, Universal Studios, where you can see scenes from famous films, a teleferic, shops, karting, restaurants, terraces, some hotels, but also some absolutely beautiful beaches with white sand, palm trees and a water clearer than the sky above it. At least one day on Sentosa Island you should not miss the schedule of any tourist who goes to Singapore. If you do not have a beach breeze and you miss the snow, there's no problem. Snow City is where winter is at home. All you have to do is take the subway to Jurong Station and with $ 15 an hour you can feel like the North Pole. I pray, it's just that cold, but reasonable for a winter day.

Not far from the center of the metropolis there is a neighborhood where the rules of the singaporeans have more theoretical value. It's Little India, the Indian community neighborhood, which is not a small number. The state opened the gates for the Indians, which now form 9% of the country's population, needing cheap construction workforce, and grouping them all into a neighborhood where they work according to their customs. Here are the shops and even the malls of commodity in India, the traders of merchants who sell anything, restaurants with Indian food, Hindu temples, where people pray to their gods, and markets where they gather in the evening and look, , to Indian movies, murmuring in chorus when the action demands it. All this in a landscape where the $ 500 fine applicable to those who throw garbage on the street has the value of a bench. Authorities close their eyes, provided the Indians do not scatter the rules outside their perimeter. Quite close to Little India is Chinatown, which no longer requires presentation, but also the Arabic street, thus encompassing the cultural and religious multitude of the cosmopolitan metropolis where 39% of the population comes from other countries.

Another point of interest on the city map is the zoo, one with the best recommendations around the world. The base entry costs $ 22, but if you want to see the panda bears, you have to take another $ 5 from your pocket, if you want an elephant walk, another $ 8, and so on. In addition to a huge variety of animals, the Singapore Zoo proposes a night safari among the creatures and a water safari where you ride a boat in a jungle that reproduces both the Amazonian and the African or Asian. Both deserve all the 25 dollars that you have to pay extra.

Singapore can be a paradise and for tourists willing to take their hand deep into shopping pocket. The main shopping artery is Orchard Road, but the city has around 50 malls, probably the largest mall in the world, where you can find companies from the luxurious Armani, Prada, Gucci and others to the most accessible, like Zara or H & M. Scuba enthusiasts can meet their tastes in Chinatown, Little India or in the Bugis area, full of stalls. Chinese food or fast food Being a state with predominantly Chinese population, the Singapore cuisine is much like the Chinese one, being spicy and rich in sharp odors. Very popular are the so-no- food-court bribes, huge halls where you can find food from all corners of the world, but overwhelmingly from Asia, at reasonable prices, 15-20 dollars a lunch. The places are clean, but you eat together, you smell together. Those who do not feel the sensation have fast-food: Mc Donald's, Burger King, KFC, Subway, where they eat the same food as the food court, but a little more expensive than ours. And for those with a handshake there are many restaurants, with food from all over the world, where a meal costs you 100 dollars. Very popular are the terraces in the port area, where fish and seafood are served. You can choose from the aquarium what's going to be in your dish over 20 minutes. The drink is expensive in Singapore due to the high alcohol taxes, but there are beers and wine and whiskey and everything else at both restaurants and the supermarket plus the 7 Eleven Japanese unit units present from 50 to 50 of meters. Attention, however, that the alcoholic beverages are sold only until 22.30.

Singapore means the City of the Lions, a denomination derived from the words Singa (leu) and pure (city), both of Malay. Legend has it that a Sumatra prince would have landed there after a storm and would have given his eyes a lion. But as Lei never existed in this part of the world, it was probably a tiger. The Singapore visa is taken at the airport, it's free and it's been granted for a period of 90 days. Transport to the city center is easy and costs the metro, 2.60 SGP. The road takes about 40 minutes. Singapore accommodation is expensive: a 3-star hotel room costs 100 euros per night, but there are also hostels where it's a lot cheaper.

One of the attractions of the city is the National Orchid Garden, an orchid garden, absolutely impressive, located in a corner of the Botanical Garden. Singapore has a very intense nightlife, with many clubs and restaurants open late in the night. Sir Thomas Stamford Raffles is the founder of the state, and the statue of the Englishman, who landed there in 1819, is where he first traveled in the Museum of Civilizations. Hotel Raffles is also a tourist spot.

Who is the Hotel Guest of 2020?



Who is the Hotel Guest of 2020?

The 2010s has been a revolutionary decade for many service sectors, not least the hospitality industry, one which has benefitted enormously from the creation and development of astounding new technologies. In previous times, hotels fulfilled a function, namely to provide accommodation for guests staying in a specific location. Today, guests expect a lot more from hotels than to merely put them up for the night. We have entered the era of personalisation, one where people want to have the last word in all aspects of their hotel stay.

With 2020 a mere 10 months way, let’s look at some of the contemporary expectations that hotel guests are seeking, with visual accompaniment in the form of an infographic from The Europe Hotel Resort in Killarney, Ireland.

Complete customisation
Hotel guests do not want off-the-shelf, one-size-fits-all packages. They have come to expect a significant degree of personalisation with almost every aspect of their stay, whether it’s the size of their bed, the aspect of their room windows, or the theme of the dinner menu. Indeed, some guests will even wish to arrange a bespoke itinerary with the hotel – for instance, they might ask for a gourmet meal on the first night of their stay, a luxurious spa treatment on day two and a game of golf the following day. To reflect the increasing demand for customisation, many luxury hotels are now updating their booking systems to allow for guests to tailor everything about their stay.

Monetisation of guest reviews
One aspect of the hospitality industry which has grown exponentially in in recent years is the significance attached to guest reviews and feedback. When people are searching online for accommodation in a certain city or region, they will invariably gravitate towards those with the most favourable reviews. Platforms such as Kayak and TripAdvisor provide a platform for unbiased, honest feedback, so people will generally trust these readily.
The importance of impartial guest feedback has not been lost on hospitality providers, who know that a tidal wave of negative publicity on social media could have disastrous consequences. For that reason, some hotels have begun to monetise guest reviews by offering to pay guests for leaving positive reviews on independent outlets. This is a win-win for all concerned; the guest receives a payment for taking a few minutes to reflect on a positive experience they had, and the hotel stands to recoup the commission costs of this activity several times over in terms of increased business.

Provision for instant feedback
We live
in an era where people want things instantly; thankfully Google has most of the answers. Among the things that people wish to do instantly in 2019 and 2020 is to share their opinions online. That’s why platforms such as Twitter have thrived. If a hotel guest has strong views about the place where they are staying, they’re not going to keep those opinions to themselves until checkout time. They’ll let people know about it straight away.
Some hotels have begun capturing ‘mood snaps’, which is facilitated through intelligent technology that can gauge the mood of guests and deliver its findings back to the hotel’s guest satisfaction index. The general manager of the hotel can instantly see how guests are feeling and promptly investigate the reasons why, enabling him/her to address guest dissatisfaction quickly and appropriately.

Centralised guest ID
The pet peeve of many hotel guests is the requirement to carry multiple forms of identification when checking in. Hotels are beginning to recognise this through the introduction of a single virtual fingerprint which serves as a guest’s ID and includes their transaction history and travel preferences. While this might seem like a dangerous amount of data for customers to give away, they have the autonomy to make specific layers of information available to other entities on a need-to-know basis.

24/7 human assistance
All this new technology and automation is great, but when things go amiss, guests ultimately want to talk to a human who can empathise with their problem and provide an appropriate solution. An omnipresent service line combines the human and technological elements to deliver an effective response to queries at any time – even if a member of staff can’t be reached physically, someone will be available remotely to help with the guest’s query.

Smart rooms
When you book a plane or train ticket, you’re given the choice of where to sit. The same applies to a lot of newer cinemas as well. It’s a level of customisation that’s also being adopted by a growing number of hotels. Instead of guests simply being assigned to any available room that meets the booking criteria, they are presented with the option of choosing which room to take, based on factors such as location and size.
It isn’t just the characteristics of the room that will be at the guest’s discretion, either. They will also have the freedom to control the lighting and air conditioning from automation apps on their smartphone, along with other nanotechnological features.

Increased guest input into menu selection
For many guests, one of the main attractions of a hotel is its quality and choice of fine dining. Some guests would baulk at being restricted to the offering on the hotel’s standard menu, which is why they are now being afforded the opportunity to make their own gastronomic arrangements. If there’s a certain foodstuff or recipe that a guest wants implemented, they can suggest it to the head chef, who will then arrange it accordingly.
Some luxury hotels have now adapted ‘intelligent menus’ that provide full scope to foodie guests who are given free rein to suggest any ingredients and preferences that they want to eat during their stay. These menus can also be customised to reflect a guests’ tastes and dietary requirements, particularly for repeat guests who have stayed at the hotel previously. This customisation can extend to the arranging of mealtimes outside of the traditional windows. If a guest doesn’t want to be restricted to having breakfast before 11am, they can choose a time that suits and the delicacies will be provided at their requested time.

Danube legends: the mystery of ancient tunnels that span the River

Most legends say that the Moldavian boyars had dug a tunnel under the Danube in order to protect the wealth of Turkish and Tatar invasions. Entering the tunnel they are in a sacred place inaccessible "civilians" under the altar of the Virgin historic church on the Danube. Experts reject the idea that there is such a tunnel but leaves some question marks.


25 Reasons to Visit Romania (1): Danube Delta
Starting today, I will present you a lifetime adventure and another kind of holiday for those who love to discover new lands, nature, secluded villages, history, culture, amazing people, great food, art and entertainment, sea, mountains, cities ...


Dream Gal can easily Danube passes through a tunnel or on a bridge, is centuries old. It may even come from the darkness of millennia, for it is certain that these places were inhabited since before Christ. Over time, around this longing to reach without too much trouble on the bank of Dobrogea (go 800 meters by boat in terms of currents very potent water is not available to everyone) were woven many projects and legends. Even if in the last quarter century predominated projects (none achieved, despite the barrage of promises and the millions of euros spent on all sorts of feasibility studies phantasmagoric), all legends hottest ignite people's imagination. For if you ask the Galatians that's with the tunnel under the Danube, you will find that already exist, secret, did the Romans or the Turks, not quite clear, but they will swear broken authorities' plans this (considered utopian the vast majority) to make a tunnel to the bank auto Tulcea. But back to the legends of this in the past.


Virgin Church Rosslyn chapel is a Romanian? Most of the information circulated locally about existing tunnels beneath the city and under the Danube sits in the center of the story Precista fortified church, which is located on the seafront, just 100 meters from the river. At first glance, Virgin seems kind of Rosslyn chapel of Romania (who read the book "The Da Vinci Code" by Dan Brown, understand parallel), who hides secrets impenetrable by ordinary people. Built between 1643 and 1647 during the reign of Vasile Lupu, Virgin was at the same time, and place of worship but also against invaders fortress. It is the oldest monument in Galati, and they hovered around always a veil of mystery.

Virgin Church bore all the hardships of the times, being burned by the Turks in 1711, destroyed in the wars Russo-Ottoman-1735-1739 and 1769-1774 Austrian years and suffering damages in many other occasions, so that enshrined the invaders they had as a favorite target. French architect who led the restoration of the church (just after World War II) noted that Virgin has a lot of surprising construction details, which make it be a single building. Thus, masonry, among the rows of brick, stone is used, the unused technical Moldovan churches built in the same period. Also, the wall above the windows walls up to the roof is double, forming a gallery as a man can walk comfortably. In addition, there is a large room above the altar, where the barbarian invasions of various jewels and riches made sure the city. The presence of this room within the church, he would say, by chance, because even under the altar (place where you can not look because, by definition, is a sacred taboo) would start a secret tunnel beneath Danube where it could lead to safety fortunes could be saved from the raging enemies prominent residents. It is also conveys the idea that, about a century ago, the tunnel would have been covered with soil at the end of Tulcea and the Danube corridor as would have been used by the rich times to conceal treasures of German and Soviet invaders. Another option would be that the tunnel has two "mouths": one under houses the famous lawyer H. Stephen (whose goods - have a huge collection of paintings and jewelry, valued at tens of millions of dollars - have suddenly disappeared during of the Second World War) and the other in St. George church (a famous church - demolished with great pomp in 1963, the Communists - Cossack hetman that housed the remains of Ivan Mazepa great).


Those who hold the legend Obviously if you want to know things about the past Galati, it is a must to go to a museum. County Museum of History "Paul Paltanea" holds its three locations (headquarters of the Royal House and the House Collections Cuza) extraordinary testimonies of the past of these places. Also, there is evidence exposed at the Museum of History, Culture and Christian spirituality in the Lower Danube, Moldovan Village Museum or The Museum of Natural Sciences. But if you want to escape from the incredible world of extraordinary not need to go to the park Tiglina chess player. There, history takes on a completely different, almost mystical, almost "science fiction" for the venerable fight it (playing chess world as there!) Know the things that history books and official reports do not fit. They keep living legend. And not because the legend would not preserve and propagate and otherwise, but because there chess in the park, people have a peculiar grace in the story, contradicting and be completed each other. In chess park, the tunnel under the Danube is about as gross domestic product: everyone knows it exists, but nobody has ever seen. The few who boast that they were there mercilessly others are ridiculeand legend carriers, who are convinced that the tunnel will be found soon. Those who hold the legend Obviously if you want to know things about the past Galati, it is a must to go to a museum.

Let us return, however, the museum Beyond the words spoken by carriers legends deserve undoubtedly like to have the last word, however, specialists. Cristian Căldăraru, director of the Museum of History in Galati, declaring pessimistic regarding the possibility that our ancestors who have limited technical resources, have built a tunnel under the Danube. However, there is some truth, as history repuatul recognize Galati. "It all started from that uncovered a gallery with a length of 300 meters between Virgin Church and the Church of St. George. This gave rise to the legend that there was such a tunnel under the Danube riverbed and the tunnel through which they may reach the shore of the river Tulcea. There is no evidence of this is just a story, "says Căldăraru. Interestingly, his statement is nuanced slightly adviser Marius Mitrof, the Directorate for Culture and Heritage of Galati, which accredits the idea that the legend remains a legend because samples were lost. "Everything is a legend and will remain so. The way was ransacked Danube promenade in the area is hard to believe that we will ever find any tunnel. I knew how to preserve the history and legends now be satisfied with, "said Mitrof. The fact that the people behind exaggerations there could be a considerable amount of truth somewhere and confirmed that under Galaţi pass dozens of kilometers of tunnels mysterious. Most of them were dug and built back at least 200 years, but unfortunately the city during 1950-1970 rebuilding destroyed them and it has largely stopped.However, the streets of RoyalBalcescuAlexander Cuza, Michael Bravu and coopers (the oldest street of the city) can be found numerous remnants of these vast networks of tunnels that has never been explored and mapped by specialists.

Danube legends: the mystery of ancient tunnels that span the River

Most legends say that the Moldavian boyars had dug a tunnel under the Danube in order to protect the wealth of Turkish and Tatar invasions. Entering the tunnel they are in a sacred place inaccessible "civilians" under the altar of the Virgin historic church on the Danube. Experts reject the idea that there is such a tunnel but leaves some question marks.


25 Reasons to Visit Romania (1): Danube Delta
Starting today, I will present you a lifetime adventure and another kind of holiday for those who love to discover new lands, nature, secluded villages, history, culture, amazing people, great food, art and entertainment, sea, mountains, cities ...


Dream Gal can easily Danube passes through a tunnel or on a bridge, is centuries old. It may even come from the darkness of millennia, for it is certain that these places were inhabited since before Christ. Over time, around this longing to reach without too much trouble on the bank of Dobrogea (go 800 meters by boat in terms of currents very potent water is not available to everyone) were woven many projects and legends. Even if in the last quarter century predominated projects (none achieved, despite the barrage of promises and the millions of euros spent on all sorts of feasibility studies phantasmagoric), all legends hottest ignite people's imagination. For if you ask the Galatians that's with the tunnel under the Danube, you will find that already exist, secret, did the Romans or the Turks, not quite clear, but they will swear broken authorities' plans this (considered utopian the vast majority) to make a tunnel to the bank auto Tulcea. But back to the legends of this in the past.


Virgin Church Rosslyn chapel is a Romanian? Most of the information circulated locally about existing tunnels beneath the city and under the Danube sits in the center of the story Precista fortified church, which is located on the seafront, just 100 meters from the river. At first glance, Virgin seems kind of Rosslyn chapel of Romania (who read the book "The Da Vinci Code" by Dan Brown, understand parallel), who hides secrets impenetrable by ordinary people. Built between 1643 and 1647 during the reign of Vasile Lupu, Virgin was at the same time, and place of worship but also against invaders fortress. It is the oldest monument in Galati, and they hovered around always a veil of mystery.

Virgin Church bore all the hardships of the times, being burned by the Turks in 1711, destroyed in the wars Russo-Ottoman-1735-1739 and 1769-1774 Austrian years and suffering damages in many other occasions, so that enshrined the invaders they had as a favorite target. French architect who led the restoration of the church (just after World War II) noted that Virgin has a lot of surprising construction details, which make it be a single building. Thus, masonry, among the rows of brick, stone is used, the unused technical Moldovan churches built in the same period. Also, the wall above the windows walls up to the roof is double, forming a gallery as a man can walk comfortably. In addition, there is a large room above the altar, where the barbarian invasions of various jewels and riches made sure the city. The presence of this room within the church, he would say, by chance, because even under the altar (place where you can not look because, by definition, is a sacred taboo) would start a secret tunnel beneath Danube where it could lead to safety fortunes could be saved from the raging enemies prominent residents. It is also conveys the idea that, about a century ago, the tunnel would have been covered with soil at the end of Tulcea and the Danube corridor as would have been used by the rich times to conceal treasures of German and Soviet invaders. Another option would be that the tunnel has two "mouths": one under houses the famous lawyer H. Stephen (whose goods - have a huge collection of paintings and jewelry, valued at tens of millions of dollars - have suddenly disappeared during of the Second World War) and the other in St. George church (a famous church - demolished with great pomp in 1963, the Communists - Cossack hetman that housed the remains of Ivan Mazepa great).


Those who hold the legend Obviously if you want to know things about the past Galati, it is a must to go to a museum. County Museum of History "Paul Paltanea" holds its three locations (headquarters of the Royal House and the House Collections Cuza) extraordinary testimonies of the past of these places. Also, there is evidence exposed at the Museum of History, Culture and Christian spirituality in the Lower Danube, Moldovan Village Museum or The Museum of Natural Sciences. But if you want to escape from the incredible world of extraordinary not need to go to the park Tiglina chess player. There, history takes on a completely different, almost mystical, almost "science fiction" for the venerable fight it (playing chess world as there!) Know the things that history books and official reports do not fit. They keep living legend. And not because the legend would not preserve and propagate and otherwise, but because there chess in the park, people have a peculiar grace in the story, contradicting and be completed each other. In chess park, the tunnel under the Danube is about as gross domestic product: everyone knows it exists, but nobody has ever seen. The few who boast that they were there mercilessly others are ridiculeand legend carriers, who are convinced that the tunnel will be found soon. Those who hold the legend Obviously if you want to know things about the past Galati, it is a must to go to a museum.

Let us return, however, the museum Beyond the words spoken by carriers legends deserve undoubtedly like to have the last word, however, specialists. Cristian Căldăraru, director of the Museum of History in Galati, declaring pessimistic regarding the possibility that our ancestors who have limited technical resources, have built a tunnel under the Danube. However, there is some truth, as history repuatul recognize Galati. "It all started from that uncovered a gallery with a length of 300 meters between Virgin Church and the Church of St. George. This gave rise to the legend that there was such a tunnel under the Danube riverbed and the tunnel through which they may reach the shore of the river Tulcea. There is no evidence of this is just a story, "says Căldăraru. Interestingly, his statement is nuanced slightly adviser Marius Mitrof, the Directorate for Culture and Heritage of Galati, which accredits the idea that the legend remains a legend because samples were lost. "Everything is a legend and will remain so. The way was ransacked Danube promenade in the area is hard to believe that we will ever find any tunnel. I knew how to preserve the history and legends now be satisfied with, "said Mitrof. The fact that the people behind exaggerations there could be a considerable amount of truth somewhere and confirmed that under Galaţi pass dozens of kilometers of tunnels mysterious. Most of them were dug and built back at least 200 years, but unfortunately the city during 1950-1970 rebuilding destroyed them and it has largely stopped.However, the streets of RoyalBalcescuAlexander Cuza, Michael Bravu and coopers (the oldest street of the city) can be found numerous remnants of these vast networks of tunnels that has never been explored and mapped by specialists.
