USA, Connecticut – Greenwich

Published: 30.10.2020
Today we take a trip to the state of Connecticut, which lies in the northeast corner of the United States. The Dutch settled here first by European settlers at the beginning of the 17th century, and the English settled here in the 1930s. It belongs to the places with the oldest European settlement.

We have already visited Hartford, Mystic Seaport or New Haven together in Connecticut. This time we'll look at Greenwich. By the way, this state has the highest median income in the entire United States, so you will find many expensive branded shops and more luxurious restaurants. However, the city offers more than just pomp, you will see for example historic houses, beautiful beaches and interesting museums.

Bush-Holley House Museum

We will first take you to the Greenwich Historical Society, mainly because of the Bush-Holley House Museum, a national monument built in the early 18th century. During the second half of the 19th century, the house served as an accommodation facility for artists and writers. In addition, there are large galleries with beautiful paintings. Of course, there is also a souvenir shop and a cozy café. Please note that the museum is only open from Wednesday to Sunday. Admission is free every first Wednesday of the month, so you may be lucky and manage to come here conveniently.

We will move on to another museum, the Bruce Museum, located in a one-story building opposite Bruce Park in the southeast of the city. The exhibitions in the museum are very diverse. You will see everything from photographs to sculptures to Chinese brush painting. The museum also includes a section dedicated to science, where it is appropriate to bring children.

Another remarkable place is the house Putnam Cottage, which can be found on the hill of the same name. Thanks to its light red color, you will definitely not miss it. The house was built in the 17th century and was used by local Masons who met here. However, he gained his fame only during the War of Independence. Today, this memorable place is a frequent destination for school trips for students to look at the three main rooms where time has stood still.

If you have a taste for art, then we definitely recommend you to take a look at the Flinn Gallery. It was reopened a year ago after reconstruction, so there is a lot of news.

Finally, we will recommend the local main street Greenwich Avenue, whose atmosphere will captivate you. You will definitely stop here at various interesting shop windows, if you do not buy anything, then at least a pleasant walk and sit in a local restaurant.
