Tourist centers in Great Britain

Tourism is a major industry in Great Britain. It is one of the main sources of national wealth.

The British take a pride of varied landscape. There are many places in the country which once visited will always be remembered. The travelers can admire numerous places of interest in British capital, London. It’s impossible to see all the sights in one day, it takes more time to see all the capital’s attractions.

If tourists want to admire the British landscape they are welcomed to Wales – to a beautiful land, magical castles alive with history and glory, and lots of traditional cooking and hospitality.

One of the best ways of enjoying Welsh scenery is to take a trip on one of the nostalgic steam railways which criss - cross gently through the countryside.

If tourists hunt for real Scotland, they are sure to find it in the Highlands. The real Scotland is not found in a single moment. Scenery, history, hospitality, humour, climate, pageantry and tradition are on offer throughout a year.

There has been a considerable increase in passenger travel in recent years

Tourists are good for a country

This statement can be looked at from several points of view. Firstly, tourism should be considered in relation to a country's economy. Secondly, it can be seen in terms of its effect on the countryside and environment. Thirdly, the influence of the tourist industry on culture must be taken into account.

The economy of a country often benefits from tourism: foreign visitors come and spend their money, and this creates jobs for those who run hotels and restaurants.

However, there are also certain drawbacks. Whereas the people directly involved in the industry may benefit, others may find that they are worse off. This is because the cost of living goes up and goods become more expensive since tourists are ready to pay more for them.

As far as the effect on the environment is concerned, tourism is often a bad thing. In spite of building better roads and improvements for poorer areas, it is sometimes very harmful. In some countries, huge hotels and skyscrapers have ruined areas of unspoiled beauty.

The cultural influence of tourism is difficult to estimate, in some countries foreign influence can destroy the local way of life. On the other hand, countries which do not encourage tourism may miss the benefits that foreign technology and investment can bring.

So, tourism has both advantages and disadvantages; if it is controlled properly, it can be good for a country, but it also may do a great deal of harm.

Buckingham Palace

There are two addresses in London that the whole world knows.One is 10 Downing Street, where the Prime Minister lives. The other is Buckingham Palace. This famouspalace, first built in 1703, is in very centre of London.

It is two places, not one. It is a family house, where children play and grow up. It is also the place, where presidents, kings and politicians go to meet the Queen.

Buckingham Palace is like a small town, with a police station, two post offices, a hospital, a bar, two sports clubs, a disco, a cinema and a swimming pool. There are 600 rooms and three miles of red carpet. Two men work full-time to look after the 300 clocks. About 700 people work in the Palace.

When the Queen gets up in the morning, seven people look after her. One starts her bath, one prepares her clothes, and one feeds the Royal dogs. She has eight or nine dogs and they sleep in their own bedroom near the Queen’s bedroom. Two people bring her breakfast. She has coffee from Harrods, toast and eggs. Every day for fifteen minutes, a piper plays the Scottish music outside her room and the Queen reads The Times.

Every Tuesday evening, she meets the Prime Minister. They talk about world news and have a drink, perhaps a gin and tonic or whisky.

When the Queen invites a lot of people for dinner, it takes three days to prepare the table and three days to do the washing-up. Everybody has five glasses: one for red wine, one for white wine, one for port and one for liqueur. During the first and second courses, the Queen speaks to the person on her left and then she speaks to the person on her right for the rest of the meal. When the Queen finishes her food, everybody finishes and it is time for the next course.


The Dniester

The Dniester is the second biggest river in Ukraine and the biggest in the south – western part of Ukraine. It rises in Beskydy near the village Vovche in Lviv region. It flows into the Dniester lagoon of the Black Sea to the south – west to Odessa. The length of the Dniester is 1,362 km. either in Lviv, Ivano – Frankivsk, Ternopil, Chernivtsi or in Khmelnytsky, Vynnytsya, Odessa region you can come down to the bank of the Dniester and observe its endless waters. The Dniester has 386 tributaries. Most of them are on the left side. The river is winding. In the higher part it is typical mountain stream, flowing along the narrow valley with steep rocky banks. In the lower part it flows slower and slower through wide and at places marshy plain. The river is supplied mainly with rain and snow.

The word ‘Dniester’ means ‘Southern river’. The first written information about the Dniester fell on the end of the 13th century – beginning of the 14th century. It said that the Dniester connected the Carpathians region with the Black Sea and served as a convenient trade route for ships setting for Greece and other countries on the way.

Unfortunately, the Dniester is not rich in fish. Nevertheless, the bream, the carp and the others are to be found there. The river is navigable from its mouth to the town of Halych.

Nowadays the Dniester is one of the most interesting rivers in the way of peculiar routes. One can travel along the river by a motorboat, raft, catamaran or kayak. One can go under the sail as it is often windy on the Dniester.
