Posted on 11 May 2019 (0)

I found Newfoundland to be unique than the rest of the parts of Canada. Trust me when I say that it is a great place to explore. As a matter of fact, the locals are so friendly and hospitable that you are never going to feel out of place. There are various kinds of things to do and see in here. Take a quick look at some of them.

Explore the Village

The Cupers Cove had been established by John Guy for almost 400 years. The view that it offers is just spectacular. It is situated at the center of the Conception Bay on the east coast of Newfoundland. It is a historical site that displays the life of John Guy. This is the best place to visit with your partner.

Check out the Pop-Art House

There is a small community that I came across at the entrance of the Newfoundland harbor. It had been developed as the temporary resident following the devastating fire. The colors of the houses are bright and eye-popping. I and my partner went hiking. It was a unique experience. Get to know about the culture and habits of the local people.

Learn About the Lighthouse

Being developed in 1843, the symbolic white and red striped lighthouse at the dark-grey rock is a great sight to behold. This is one amongst the handfuls that still remains in the world. Climbing the top, we were able to see the light that is fueled by oil. This was used during ancient times. It marked the entrance of Trinity and Bonavista bays for helping out mariners who were headed to Labrador. Standing on top, you will also get to see the blue water. Spend some time quite a time here. I was told about this place as a recommended place to visit by a chiropractor friend in Anchorage who runs Alaska Back Care Center.  Dr. Barry is an avid traveler and had mentioned this stop to me and I am so glad to have committed to visiting.  This was surely worth the visit.

Nizhny Novgorod had been founded by Prince Yuri Vsevolodovich in 1221 for protecting the borders of Russia. It is considered to be a hub of cultural, political, and economic activity in Russia. I had read about the stunning landscape of the city and thus, planned to visit. It is slowly turning out to be a hotspot for global and Russian’s tourists alike. Here are some of the best places that you can visit during your tour.

The Kremlin

The Kremlin is a stunning monument which covering a significant part of the ancient hill. This is architecture depicting the defense of Russia. I came to learn that the monument has experienced several troublesome events but is still standing. You will be surprised to know that 14 towers are connected by the high stone wall. Each and every tower has a specific function. The structure took 15 years to be built. A tour of the museum enlightened me about the history of the country. From inside, you can catch glimpse of the splendid view of the city.

Chkalov Staircase

Visit the Chkalov Staircase to clear your doubt about how many stairs are actually there. In order to reach the top, you have to be fit. Well, fit or not, I had to get to the finish line to experience the view that it has to offer. From the top, you can look out over the entire city.

Pechersky Ascension Monastery

St. Dionysius had built this monastery around 1328-1330. Eventually, it turned out to be the religious and the spiritual center of the city. However, a landslide in 1597 destroyed the monastery. In the same year, it was rebuilt. It is surely a great place to visit. The tranquility will come as a respite. You will find wonderful paintings on the chapel ceilings and wall.
