Did you know?

The square of miracles

The Square of Miracles

It is not for nothing it is called the Square of Miracles. The world-famous leaning tower of Pisa was, and is, defying gravity laws. Although, engineers have managed to straighten it up a little from a 5.5 degree to a 4 degree inclination. The construction of the tower began in 1173 and took place in stages over the course of 177 years. It truly is a miracle that the tower is still standing for us to enjoy today.

Did you know?

Paris

Paris in ruins?

Paris, Hitler instructed, must not fall into the enemy’s hands except as “a field of ruins”. He ordered the city be prepared for demolition, should the Allies come. The military commander of Paris, General of Infantry Dietrich von Choltitz, had no intention of seeing Paris destroyed. He loved the beauty of the city as well as its cultural significance. He was appalled by the act of destruction he was to commit, so disobeyed orders by leaving Paris intact.

Did you know?

Shakespear's Globe

Shakespeare's Globe

Did you know that the original Globe Theatre burned down during the production of Henry VIII. It could host over 3000 spectators at the time. The current, reconstructed, Shakespeare’s Globe is a very realistic version of the original, but can only host less than half the amount of people. Why? Modern safety regulations.
