Milan Cathedral

A giant Cathedral, which is located in the heart of old Milan, is one of the most paradoxical constructions of the middle Ages. Its the least can be called Gothic. But despite this, the Milan Cathedral is a remarkable and, perhaps, the best example of Italian Gothic!

Milan Cathedral is often called the “eighth wonder of the world”, and for this there is reason. The Cathedral is the world’s largest structure made of marble.

Somewhere in the wilds of the forest lurks priglashennyh Husmor – mysterious tract of which few have heard and almost no one saw. Before the revolution there was a “guard” forest cordon, and now it is this wilderness, where no roads, no trails, no. But Rushmore locals remember a wonderful place. According to a few eyewitnesses, there, deep in the forest, towered built from stones of the correct form a hemisphere of 6 m in diameter and 3 meters in height.
