The Palais Garnier, also known as the Paris Opera, Opera Garnier or Opera de Paris, is an architectural masterpiece of the 19th century, where ballet and opera have been entertaining and evoking overwhelming emotions of a diverse range for years. It took one and a half decades to build the opera house designed by Charles Garnier. The house in the ninth arrondissement of Paris, France can seat more than 2,000 people. The opulent structure boasts a colossal crystal chandelier, weighing about eight tons, in a gold and red horseshow-shaped auditorium; and a roomy stage to accommodate as much as 450 performers. The building is embellished with statuary, columns and vibrant marble friezes. Statues of noted composers- Beethoven, Mozart and Rossini- share space with that of Greek gods. Use of gold leaf, cherubic nymphs and shinny velvet is characteristic to the Baroque style of artwork. It has inspired designs of many other buildings located across the world: the Juliusz Slowacki Theatre in Krakow, Poland, the Amazon Theatre in Manaus, Brazil and the Hanoi Opera House in Vietnam.

Art is huge in Berlin, Germany. Not only is every other person you see on the street very likely to be an aspiring artist, but galleries and art museums abound, making it easy to fill days, if not weeks with art experiences. The fact that ”everyone” does art is a combination of the low living costs, which have caused a pilgrimage of artists within basically every field to Berlin, but also it is due to an unusually allowing and creative atmosphere. As a result, the quality of the work exhibited can be more or less questionable, but there are a number of reliable art institutions that usually won’t disappoint.

For centuries Russia has respected and nurtured talents in fields often ignored in the West, especially in the area of ‘high culture’. One of the few good things about the Soviet Union was the way that it opened such aristocratic leisure pursuits as opera and ballet to mass audiences and this is why today, Russia is such a leading critical success in the field.

Ballet

The first stop for any ‘culture vulture’ should be the Bolshoi Theatre. Visitors can go in and admire the sumptuous architecture at any time but seeing a production here is a must. read full article

The Italian capital, nicknamed the “Eternal City” is a city of layers, contemporary establishments built on thousands of years of history. The sense of history here is extraordinary, so profound and immediate. The city of Rome is a museum in itself, and only 24 hours to spare can hardly do its timeless grandeur and beauty any justice at all, but it is ample time to intrigue your senses and pave your path for return.

The city is best experienced by foot or bike, as transportation is not the most reliable and many of the main tourist destinations are walking distance apart. I prefer walking around the city, as it also provides a full-fledged sensory experience. read full article

The capital of Belgium is the city of Brussels, completely surrounded by Flanders (Dutch- speaking) and considered by many to also be the capital of the EU or European Union. Brussels is the crossroads of European culture as well, with the Germanic being to the north and the Romance (French) in the south. It is no wonder that Brussels is considered to be the archetypal “melting pot” of Europe due to the significant role the city plays on the European continent. The current population is 1 million while the greater area is over 2 million.
