USA, Ohio – Cleveland: Modern and Folkish

Published: 21.6.2019
Not so long ago, we tooka short walk around Cincinnati and today we'll look at other places you shouldn't miss in this state. First we visit Cleveland, Ohio's second largest city, with about 2 million people living in its metropolitan area.

In the city modernity and rustic flair blend on the southern shore of Lake Erie, the fourth largest of the Great Lakes. Culture is dominant in the city - theaters, museums and especially the vibrant social scene make Cleveland an attractive city. In the 19th century, the importance of Cleveland was that it was an important city on the canal on the Cuyahoga River.


Today, the remains of the industrial revolution are being used to strengthen the city's cultural identity. Old warehouses are transformed into design hotels or places that may be tempted to spend their free time. There are also some sports facilities and museums.

First, we'll take you to the West Side Market, the country's longest-running public market. The marketplace is dominated by a 40-meter clock tower from 1912. Today, there are 100 retailers in the marketplace, offering everything from vegetables to quality meat, pastries, cheese and flowers. Even if you do not choose here, visiting the markets will be an interesting experience for you.

If you love music, we have a unique tip for you - the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame. It was designed by I. M. Pei, a Sino-American architect whose works are characterized by a modernist style with elements of cubism. It is an experience more than a classic-style museum. Pei himself summed up this architectural gem: "My intention was for the building to radiate the energy that rock and roll carries within it."

Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Building a 50-meter tower, supporting a "tent" in a pyramidal shape with an adjacent 6,000-square-foot area, rises above the waters of the Lake of Ery. The interior space is an area of 5,000 square meters, which includes exhibition areas, offices, a cafe and of course a souvenir shop.

Go through the rock history on six floors; you will see, for example, the rare Purple Haze handwriting by Jimi Hendrix himself. Real fans can easily drown hours in the museum.

The last place we will take you today is the Cleveland Museum of Art with beautiful works of art not only originating on the American continents, but also parts of medieval masters from Europe and Asia.
