If you want to enjoy atmosphere of traditional England, its stone houses and glittering sea in the background mark the area of southern Devonshire.
There is a small British enclave in the southernmost tip of Spain (Andalusia region known for the cities of Cordoba and Granada mostly). The earliest finding of human settlement dates back to the Stone Age here. A skull of a Neanthrtal man was found there. Later, armed struggles were led over the this strategic area which was annexed by the United Kingdom eventually.
Today, we visit one of the four countries creating the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. It is Scotland which is situated in the north of the island. The Atlantic Ocean creates its boundaries on the north and the North Sea in the east.
We come back across the Atlantic from the US to Europe, to the Great Britain.
For a while we leave Central Europe, we move to the Irish Sea, the home of the Isle of Man. Its coat of arms is rather interesting as it shows three armed legs in the shape of triskelion. It is an ancient symbol that appeared in many cultures that don’t exist today. Yet today, you might see it at Sicily’s flag.
Last week you tasted something of the unique atmosphere around Piccadilly. Today we move to places that are very important to the British statehood.
After the visit at beautiful Trafalgar Square we continue to see another sights in London.
Last week we have seen one of the most famous district of London, Soho. Once it was a red light district. Today, however, we move on.
After or Genoa walks we move northwest, to Great Britain and its capital, London.
During our stay in England that took several months, we had visited many beautiful places. We will remember them all but one of them was truly spectacular, Leeds Castle.
