MYSTERIOUS Abandoned Places in Russia
From abandoned gulag camps in Siberia to ghost towns along the black sea, here are mysterious abandoned places in Russia Subscribe to American Eye http://goo.gl/GBphkv 7.Marx Generator Hidden within a forest near Moscow is a strange, abandoned machine that might cause some confusion if you stumbled upon it one day. This massive configuration of tubes, and coils is what’s known as the Marx Generator and it’s a shockingly powerful machine. This strange device is capable of generating lightning bolts. At it’s peak performance, it was able to generate a discharge of lightning equal to all of the power generators in Russia, but for only a fraction of a second. It could create a bolt of lightning over 100 feet high, Why would the soviets build such a powerful, electrical device? This was to test how planes and other equipment would hold up against lightning strikes or to see how they would react against an electromagnetic pulse.The US had constructed a similar electronic pulse stimulator for the same reasons but it looks completely different! 6.Crimean Atomic Energy Station This unfinished construction project remains abandoned in Russia and it was set to be one of the bigger power plants in ukraine. After pripyat appeared to be a success until the meltdown, the Soviets thought they could build a similar one on the the Crimean peninsula but not all went according to planned. A town known as Shcholkine was built to house the workers who were building the project. However after the chernobyl power plant disaster, many scientists began to doubt the power plants design and started to double think its construction. Today the city and the site are completely abandoned. It’s better to not take a risk with the same design that contaminated a large part of the country. Other power plants have been abandoned due to association with the one in Chernobyl. 5.Siberian Diamond Mine Also known as the Mirny Mine, The USSR began searching for ways to make to make themselves a more economical stable and independent union. In 1955 the Soviets discovered large diamond deposit s at this site in the far away lands of Siberia and many people got to work very quickly in order to help bring wealth to the union. After about 20 years of operations, they finally decided that At one point this mine produced 10 million carats of diamonds a year and reaches a max depth of 524 meters or around 1700 feet making it the 2nd largest excavated hole in the world. The mine is so deep, airspace is closed over the hole due to helicopter crashes caused from the downward flow of air. It’s possible that controlling this diamond is mine is crucial to controlling the price of diamonds across the world. 4.Gagra, Russia Gagra is located along the Black sea and stretches 5 kilometers along the water. The subtropical climate made for a perfect location for Russians who wanted to escape the cold winters but with war in the area the town became quickly depopulated. In 1989 it had had a population of 26,636 but it was left as a lost paradise when hundreds of Georgian citizens were expelled from their homes and many were massacred, turning it into a complete ghost town. The war-torn land turned Ghagra from a beautiful tourist attraction to a grim dark place where many murders took place. Many still claim the land is still haunted to this day. 3.Lake Karachay Located in Russia’s Chelyabinsk Oblast Region, near the border of Kazakhstan, it’s been home to quite a few accidents, releasing a deadly cocktail of hazardous radioactive elements into the water. The lake has also been known to dry up and spread radioactive dust in the wind! Lake Karachay has been a dumping ground for one of the Soviet Union’s biggest Nuclear weapons facilities and it wouldn’t be a good idea to even get close. It’s currently listed as a near surface and dry nuclear waste storage facility and it appears from google maps at least that the pollution has caused the entire lake to dry up. 2. Moscow Downtown While there is the Alexanderplatz in Berlin and Eiffel tower in Paris, you really won’t see more than just one skyscraper in western european cities. Here in this photo, we see the modern skyscrapers that literally look like they're scraping the skies. Although some of these skyscrapers are mainly vacant at the moment, Russia’s financial district proves to be at the very least, an impressive architectural achievement. Wealthy Russians can afford to live in these luxury high rise buildings, and enjoy the escape from the crowded city center. These unusual weather conditions allowed for some astonishing photos, with a mix of purple, gold and red. Here in this photo we see the Ostankino Tower, which is a television tower that rises amazing 1772 feet in the sky! It’s currently the tallest structure in continental Europe and remains the eighth tallest building in the world. 1...

Turkey's Black Sea Mountains from the Air
THE BLACK SEA REGION of northern Turkey encompasses a mixture of miniature biomes that gives unique separation to both the culture and geography of this part of the country. Access inland from the coast is limited to a few deep and narrow valleys because of massive mountain ranges that form an almost unbroken wall separating the coast from the interior. The coastal side of the mountains are speckled with dense forests and an abundance of flora and fauna. The famous Tea Gardens of Rize and the Hagia Sophia Museum in the historical city of Trabzon are great places to spend the day. Rivers cascade through the rocky gorges of the north-facing mountains, where rafting and hiking to remote waterfalls are popular activities. The high mountain lakes and villages of the Haldizen Valley and Soganli Summit near the town of Uzungöl are quick escapes from the coast and perfect for a mountain bike ride. The peaks force the clouds to disgorge, leaving central Anatolia, on the interior side of the coastal ranges, in a permanent rain shadow desert. Here, the remote villages of Sırakonak and Yedigöller require a tolerance to winding one-way roads but provide access to cerulean desert lakes, waterfall oases, and some amazing Ottoman architecture (including the ancient Haho Monastery and Tortum Lake and Waterfall, featured in the video). In the eastern side of the Black Sea region, the Kaçkar Mountains tower to an impressive 4,000 meters. The glaciated granite range has contrasting southern slopes patched with green summer cow pastures, fruit orchards, and honey farms near the beautiful towns of Şavşat and Ayder. The high mountain lake of Karagöl and impressive valley views in Şavşat can make you feel like you're in the Alps, as fat dairy cows munch grass and produce the country's best milk and butter. The geothermal town of Ayder, which sits below the Kavrun Plateau, is the jumping-off point for trekking into the Kaçkars. The Black Sea region is a real anomaly, guaranteed to break any stereotypes you may hold about Turkey. With the short summer season ensuring the area sees few package tourists, most foreign visitors are the adventurous type who come here to get off the beaten track. Here's a taste of what you'll find.

The Black Sea Region Lush and green throughout the year, rocky mountains, the cool waters of the coast and plantations of tea, hazelnuts, tobacco and corn, the Black Sea is a unique part of the country. The main industry is farming, thanks mainly to the high rainfall, andin the summer the roadsides are lined with hazelnuts drying in the sun. The culture, cuisine, climate and even dialect is different to the rest of Turkey, and the coastal road stretches from east of Istanbul to the border with Georgia. The cities in this region are Amasya, Artvin, Bolu, Corum, Duzce, Giresun, Gumushane, Kastamonu, Ordu, Rize, Samsun, Sinop, Tokat, Trabzon Zonguldak, Bartin and Karabuk. Akcakoca is on the far western side of the coast, with endless hazelnutorchards. Inland to the east is Safranbolu, with a wonderful collection of old Ottoman houses, and Devek, famous for its intricately carved walking canes.Further along the coast are Inkum, Amasra and Cakraz, and then Sinop which has been a port for 1000 years and is still one of the biggest in the Black Sea. The town takes its name from the Amazon queen Sinope and local mythology suggests that femalewarriors, called Amazons, lived in this region. It is now an important industrial and commercial centre.Unye and Fatsa, east of Samsun, are popular holiday resorts with natural scenic beauty, beaches, accommodation, campsites and restaurants. Ordu is a charming city with hazelnut orchards stretching out for miles in all directions and 46km east isGiresun, with its castle perched on a steep rocky slope, crowning the city and overlooking the beach. This is where the Roman general Lucullus saw cherries for the first time, and liked them so much he introduced them into Europe.Trabzon is another important commercial port on the Black Sea, and it connects with ports in other Black Sea countries. Trabzon Castle was founded on an area shaped like a table, and the architecture that developed around the castle reflects Byzantine,Commagene and Ottoman styles. The city's most important building is the Ayasofya Museum, the interior of which is decorated with frescoes, and the exterior with reliefs. From Boztepe Park and the Ataturk Museum there are stunning panoramic views ofthe city. Inside the Altindere National Park near Macka, the Sumela Monastery is perched on high cliffs overlooking the Altindere valley, and was founded in the 14th century by Alexius III. Inside the monastery is a church, a library, various other rooms and asacred spring.The area around Rize is the wettest in the country with wonderful shades of green, and is the centre of Turkey's tea production with plantations on the high terraces. Hopa is the last Turkish port before reaching the Georgian border, and to the southis Artvin. The city was established on the terraced hills overlooking the Coruh River, which is well known for rafting, and within the province are old Georgian houses and churches.

Summer in Odessa, Ukraine - Beaches and sights (July 2016)
Odessa (Ukrainian spelling: Одеса, Україна) is Ukraine's third largest city, located on the Black Sea coast. Odessa is a major seaport and transportation hub and an attractive tourist destination. Mainly frequented by Ukrainian and Russian tourists, Odessa is known for its beaches, clubs, nightlife, but also for cultural events. There is a huge variety of restaurants and bars, catering to all culinary tastes. In this video, you can see some footage from my visit to Odessa in July 2016. The beaches shown in the video are Langeron Beach and Arcadia Beach. The beach club in the last part of the video is Ibiza Beach Club on Arcadia Beach, an upscale location with nice swimming pools and great Ibiza style house music, but comparatively high prices for drinks and loungers. The water quality of the Black Sea was quite poor. The water was oily and contained plenty of algae. It was better to use the swimming pools of the beach clubs. English was not widely spoken, as the tourist industry is fully oriented towards Russian visitors. We left the city with mixed feelings. There were lots of good restaurants and cultural attractions and we enjoyed walking along the beaches. The area around the Opera House and Potemkin stairs was really nice. Odessa's pop-up coffee trucks provided great refreshments at very affordable prices. However, we would not recommend Odessa for a proper beach holiday. Compared to other beach towns in Europe, the infrastructure just doesn't meet certain standards yet. -------------------- Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/grazandbeyond/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/grazandbeyond/ YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCo6Q2-oVQCOj3oPCQ4cGVSw Graz and beyond - Blog: http://www.grazandbeyond.com/ -------------------- Music: Kenno - The Beach (Original Mix) Soundcloud: http://www.soundcloud.com/kenno Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/artist/4fPQVQAFiRySPSBTpr68W1 Thanks to Kenno for his permission to use his great track for this video!

BALCHIK is one of the most picturesque Bulgarian towns. Built amphitheatrically at the Black Sea coast, it is 47 km north of Varna. A real pleasure is to take a walk in its cobbled narrow streets with old-time houses, steeped in the greenery of vineyards and small gardens, pleasantly contrasting the shining white elevations, encircling the town from all sides.

Black Forest (Schwarzwald) in Southwest Germany
Schwarzwald, or in english The Black Forest is located in the southwest corner of Germany in the German federal-state of Baden-Württemberg. The Black Forest is a mountainous terrain at about 200-1500 meters above sea level, the highest point being the Feldberg at 1493 m. This ancient forest is famous for its legends and the black fir trees that dot the landscape. While not particularly high, the mountains offer a wonderful place to go hiking or mountain biking with well-marked trails. Maps available from the tourist offices. There are a few skiing resorts as well offering average but crowded conditions. The region is famous for its cuckoo clocks, watchmaking, skiing and tourism. There is a large high-tech light engineering industry in the region stemming from the gold-mining and watchmaking days. Almost all tourists are from Germany and Switzerland; the region's tourist industry is therefore not well equipped to deal with guests who don't speak German. The most important destination in the Schwarzwald is called Titisee, which is a medium-sized lake with associated tourist village and hotels, with very nice views and generally very relaxed and healthy activities. From here it is a short journey to Lake Constance and the city of Konstanz, or to see the Rhein Waterfall at Neuhausen in Switzerland. Accommodations in the main tourist areas may be cheaper than many of the quaint smaller towns and villages. For a nice hut at a reasonable price, look for a privately-operated Gasthaus, which can be found in villages throughout the area. There are many pleasant surprises waiting, often with excellent home-cooked food and special service, often provided by the family living there for many generations. QUESTIONS?

The famous Olympia shipwreck lies in the southwestern coast of the Greek island, near Kalotaritissa beach. The shipwreck has been featured in many documentaries and travel shows, as well as in Luc Besson’s feature film “The Big Blue” starring Jean Reno, which was filmed in various locations around Amorgos. According to residents, a ship approached the island in February 1980. The captain was looking for a place near the coast where he would find shelter from the strong north winds. The ship anchored near the beach of Kalotaritissa but did not hold and the waves threw it on the rocks. The ship’s original name, “Inland,” is still visible despite the rust. It was later renamed “Olympia.” Vic Stefanu, [email protected] My biography - https://www.famousbirthdays.com/people/vic-stefanu.html To send me an email: [email protected] My Google+ channel: https://plus.google.com/+VicStefanu My videos include subjects about: video, tour, documentary, tourism, how to, scenic, graphic, traveling, travel, visit, historic, old, ancient, historical, famous, world, tourist, art, culture, holiday, vacation, channel, youtube, history, events, trends, information, attractions, nature, museum, park, houses, palaces, forts, castles, vic stefanu, vlog, awesome, civilization, architecture, construction, landmark, what to see, what to do, where to go, places, locations, market, shopping, centre, guide, things, buy, fun, to do, science, journal, production, films, towns, cities, countries, Europe, Asia, America, USA, England, United Kingdom
7 Mysterious UNDERWATER Cities
7 Submerged Cities and Settlements From mysterious building found at the bottom of a lake left for centuries to cities which were only previously thought to exist in the realms of fantasy to a...Russian Atlantis these are 7 Underwater Cities. Audio production provided by JaM Advertising www.tasteofjam.com Fuxian Lake is a 212sq km body of water which stretches over three separate counties in southwest China, and for centuries locals who lived on its shores told of the strange sights they had witnessed within its waters. For centuries many believed the ancient city of Heracleion was a myth, consigned to the realms of fantasy along with Atlantis, Valhalla, and wherever the little Mermaid lived. Heracleion was mentioned in the works of the Greek historian Herodotus as somewhere visited by Helen of Troy, but in Greek mythology she was the daughter of Zeus, so this didn’t really help lend the city an air of credibility. Whilst some of the cities on this list were mysteriously lost to the ocean deep, we know exactly what happened to the Chinese city of Shicheng – the government flooded it on purpose in 1959. At nearly 5000 years old the city of Pavlopetri is the oldest underwater settlement humanity has ever discovered, and after sinking sometime around 1000BC these aquatic ruins provide a fascinating snapshot into stone-age life. Phanagoria was a huge Greek city located in modern-day Russia’s Krasnodar Krai region, and whilst some of its ruins can be found on land, approximately a third can be found at the bottom of the Black Sea. An old Welsh legend tells the story of a legendary 6th Century Prince known as Helip ap Glanawg whose kingdom straddled much of modern-day North Wales. The tales mention how Helip had a giant palace built in the area today known as Conwy Bay, but it was destroyed after a storm struck the area and it became flooded by the sea, completely submerging both the palace and surrounding city. Remember how we said Pavlopetri was the oldest known underwater city? Well technically it still is, but only because archaeologists are still arguing over the age of another submerged city found in India’s Gulf of Cambay.

PORT ROYAL, JAMAICA Port Royal, Jamaica was once known as “the most wicked and sinful city in the world.” The city’s natural harbor was first used as a fishing port by its original inhabitants, the Tainos. In 1494, the Spanish took control of Jamaica, with Christopher Columbus having declared it “the fairest island eyes have beheld.” 7. LION CITY, CHINA Nicknamed “China’s Atlantis,” Lion City, also once known as Shi Cheng, is arguably the most stunning underwater city. Built during the Han dynasty and located at the bottom of a lake in the eastern Chinese province of Zhejiang, it was once a thriving metropolis. 6. PYRAMIDS OF YONAGUNI JIMA, JAPAN These underwater ruins are located near the Japanese island of Yonaguni Jima, about 75 miles off the coast of Taiwan. They are shrouded in mystery and have been a hot topic of controversy among scholars since their discovery in 1986 by a local diver. 5. PAVLOPETRI, GREECE Located off the coast of southern Laconia in Peloponnese, Greece, the 5,000-year-old city of Pavlopetri is the oldest submerged lost city in the Mediterranean Sea, and one of the oldest in the world. It was discovered by a man named Nicholas Fleming in 1967 and mapped the following year by a team of archaeologists. Despite its age, they were able to recognize a nearly-complete urban plan, including streets, buildings, and tombs. 4. BAIA, ITALY Some 1,700 years ago, 150 miles south of Rome and 50 miles north of Pompeii, Italy’s west coast was host to an upscale resort town known as Baiae, which was known for its natural therapeutic hot springs. Kelly McLaughlin of the Daily Mail UK described Baiae as a “Las Vegas for the super-rich of the 1st century’s ancient Rome.” According to historians, the mansion-covered town was “synonymous with luxury and wickedness.” 3. VILLA EPECUÉN, ARGENTINA So far, we’ve explored some pretty cool ancient underwater ruins. But what if I told you a much more recently submerged city exists? Villa Epecuen was a tourist village established in the 1920’s along the shores of Lago Epecuen, a salt lake some 600 meters southwest of Buenos Aires, Argentina. 2. CLEOPATRA’S PALACE, EGYPT Sometime during the 4th century, the Egyptian coastal city of Alexandria was hit with the double-whammy effect of a huge earthquake followed by a tsunami of epic proportions. An island called Antirhodos was sunk during the process, taking with it Cleopatra’s Palace and a former wonder of the ancient world: the Lighthouse of Alexandria, also known as the Pharos of Alexandria. 1. DWARKA, INDIA In the Gulf of Cambay, off the western coast of India, the ruins of an ancient city sit 120 feet beneath the water’s surface. Oceanographers from India’s National Institute of Ocean Technology discovered the site by chance in 2001 while conducting a pollution survey. Among the debris recovered were pottery, construction materials, human bones and teeth, and sculptures.

В первую очередь, этот регион представляет огромную историческую ценность, однако есть здесь и немало природных достопримечательностей, которые своей красотой способны пленить каждого путешественника. Самыми яркими тому подтверждениями являются многочисленные живописные плато в окрестностях Ризе. Достаточно лишь взглянуть на их фото, чтобы захотеть отправиться в путешествие. Туристам, которым выпадет случай отдохнуть на черноморском побережье Турции, непременно стоит побывать в Национальном парке «Гора Качкар» (16 км. от города), подняться на плато Айдер, Нижнее и Верхнее плато Кавран, Чамлыхешим, Икиздере, Чагиранкая, Елевит и др Чарующие горные пейзажи не могут обойтись без бурлящих потоков рек, стекающих по склонам плато.

TOP 10 Best Places To Start A New Life
TOP 10 Best Places To Start A New Life Packing up your life and moving somewhere completely new is not an easy task – but it just may be exactly what you need. Go somewhere where the climate or culture better fits your tastes and personality. There are many places in the world which very few people ever think about when contemplating a change like this. Here are 10 of the Best Places To Start A New Life. Suva, Fiji Living in Fiji can be cheap or expensive depending on the lifestyle you chose to follow. If you want the city life but on a smaller scale, then Suva, the capital, is for you. Fiji is consistently ranked in the top five for cost of living, quality of life and friendliness of the people. It’s ideal for anybody starting to become tired of the fast-paced city life they’re used to, without giving up everything they know. In Suva, you can find apartments and houses from just $250 a month, with more expensive and luxury options available too. Florianopolis, Brazil Nothing says “fresh start” like Brazil. Positive reports calling lush “Floripa” one of Brazil’s best cities to live in has influenced people from all around the world to move here, creating a vibe as cosmopolitan as it is tropical. It has great infrastructure, many job possibilities, especially in technology and tourism, and a seemingly universal willingness to celebrate anything at any time. Life here is as convenient as it is sweet. Plus, the island has 42 beaches. Santorini, Greece There are not many places in the world where you can enjoy exquisitely clear waters while perched on the rim of a massive active volcano in the middle of the sea. Santorini, or any other island part of the Greek Cyclades, are a dream come true. Candy-coloured houses carved into cliffs, sapphire waters, gleaming white buildings topped with half-spheres... These islands truly have a character of their own. Here you’ll find peace as you roam the black sand beaches or watch the legendary sunsets, which seem tinted with every shade of an artist’s palette. Old San Juan, Puerto Rico Full of beautiful architecture, colourful houses, narrow cobblestone streets, museums, forts and ocean views, Old San Juan is a perfect place to just pause and find yourself. Puerto Rican people are friendly, welcoming and very nice. They'll guide you and help you to get settled when you arrive and they are happy to answer any questions you need answering. Avarua, Cook Islands Located about 2,000 kilometres north east of New Zealand, the tropical beaches of Avarua are no less gorgeous than those of the Cyclades or Florianopolis. You can rent an apartment here for just $130 a month. The island also attracts comparatively few tourists: around 100,000 foreigners visit every year, compared to the eight million who go to Hawaii. So you won’t have crowds of people spoiling your enjoyment of Avarua’s attractions — which include observing the population of whales (The Aquatic Marine Mammal – not the country), going for long relaxing walks, and enjoying the amazing scenery. The only catch is that foreigners aren’t allowed to buy property on the island, although they can rent it for up to 60 years. Koh Thonsáy, Cambodia This small island in southern Cambodia is a real paradise of jungles and beaches. The population here is so low that it’s possible to find accommodation for a ridiculously small amount of money. You can spend your time relaxing on the beach, or exploring the jungle caves. For just $5, the fishermen will cook you a delicious meal made from freshly-caught fish and crab. Other seafood products will cost you no more than $1-2 here. The one drawback is that the island’s beaches are not well-kept tourist spots, but essentially areas of wilderness infrequently taken over by wild dogs or other animals. A place for those who really want to get away from civilisation. The Pearl Islands, Panama An amazing archipelago lying thirty kilometres to the west of mainland Panama. A huge number of pearls were once mined there; at another time pirates used it as their hiding place. Now, it’s become a haven full of wonderful resorts used by the local population. You can rent a small house here by the sea for around $300 a month. The Pearl Islands are ideal for those who want to escape from the world. In terms of the scenery, it’s probably one of the most impressive places on the planet. Veliko Tarnovo, Bulgaria This little place is nestled in a valley in northern Bulgaria. Veliko Tarnovo is undoubtedly one of the most agreeable places on the Bulgarian Black Sea Coast, often called the Bulgarian Riviera. It’s as beautiful as France, but here a bottle of wine will cost you just 80 cents...

What to See & Do in Varna, Bulgaria
What to See & Do in Varna, Bulgaria ►Subscribe and click the bell to enable notifications for my new videos: http://bit.ly/DBH-SUB ►Read the blog: http://davidsbeenhere.com/category/blog/ In this episode, David’s Been Here explores what to see and do in Varna, one of the most beautiful towns along Bulgaria’s Black Sea coast. David begins at the Archaeological Museum of Varna, which holds an exquisite collection of artifacts spanning thousands of years. Among all the priceless objects held here is the oldest uncovered golden treasure in the world. David shows us the skeleton of the Thracian man that was found alongside his golden treasure, dating back to 5,000 B.C. The man and gold were found in an ancient necropolis in the western industrial zone of Varna. Archaeologists believe the man was around 45-50 years old when he died. Continuing with the history tour of the city, David makes a stop to see Varna’s Roman Bath complex. These are the fourth largest Roman Baths in Europe! The bath complex still has remnants of the different rooms where cold, warm, and hot water pools were situated. Another part of the complex that is visible are the shops, which are located just outside the bath complex. Next stop is the Varna Cathedral, the oldest cathedral in Bulgaria, dating back to 1886 (pre-dates the Sofia Cathedral). It is the biggest Cathedral on the Black Sea coast. Inside, David shows us some of the hand painted icons and scenes from Jesus’ life. Inside, the priest of the church gives us some more information about the history of the Cathedral. After sightseeing, David works up an appetite. He heads to the pedestrian zone in the city center to get a snack of roasted corn sprinkled with cheese. For just 3 leva you can also enjoy this delicious snack. ☆ CONTACT ☆ ↠ Business: [email protected] ↠ Questions: https://www.twitter.com/davidsbeenhere ☆ Equipment Used ☆ ↠ Main Camera - http://amzn.to/2nZLPvS ↠ Main Lens - http://amzn.to/2nxLZ1g ↠ Second Lens - http://amzn.to/2o06hN1 ↠ Tripods: http://amzn.to/2oqmBKb ↠ SD Cards: http://amzn.to/2oqsYgf ↠ LaCie Rugged Hard Drive: https://alexa.design/2oZDTf0 ↠ Rent Cameras and Lenses: http://bit.ly/BL-DBH ☆ T-shirts available now ☆ ↠ http://bit.ly/DBH-Shop Production by Carlos de Varona from Chromahouse. http://carlosdevarona.com http://www.chromahouse.com SOCIAL MEDIA: Snapchat: @davidsbeenhere Instagram: https://instagram.com/davidsbeenhere Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/davidsbeenhere1 Blog: http://davidsbeenhere.com/category/blog/

Bulgarian Black Sea Coast - Best Travel Destination
The Bulgarian Black Sea Coast covers the entire eastern bound of Bulgaria stretching from the Romanian Black Sea resorts in the north to European Turkey in the south, along 378 km of coastline. White and golden sandy beaches occupy approximately 130 km of the 378 km long coast. The region is an important center of tourism during the summer season (May–October), drawing millions of foreign and local tourists alike and constituting one of the country's most popular tourist destinations. Prior to 1989 the Bulgarian Black Sea coast was internationally known as the Red Riviera. Since the fall of the Iron Curtain, however, its nickname has been changed to the Bulgarian Riviera. The Bulgarian Black Sea Coast has a humid subtropical climate, with considerable maritime and continental influences. The area's average air temperature in the summer is about 28 °C, with the average water temperature at 26 °C. There are more than 240 hours of sunshine in May and September and more than 300 hours in July and August. The Balkan Mountains cross the country reaching to the edge of the Black Sea at Cape Emine, dividing the coastline into a southern and northern part. Parts of Bulgaria's northern Black Sea Coast feature rocky headlands where the sea abuts cliffs up to 70 metres in height. The southern coast is known for its wide sandy beaches. The southernmost section is included in Strandzha Nature Park. The two largest cities and main seaports on the Bulgarian Riviera are Varna (third largest in the country) and Burgas (fourth largest in the country). Varna is located on the northern part of the coast and Burgas is located on the southern coast. The two cities' international airports, Varna Airport and Burgas Airport, are the main hubs servicing the region. In addition, the Trakia motorway was completed in 2013, providing fast access between Burgas and Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria, and Plovdiv, the second largest city. Hemus motorway, scheduled to be completed after 2020, would make the trip from Sofia to Varna substantially easier and faster, while the Cherno More motorway is planned to connect Varna and Burgas. Major road I-9 runs along the Black Sea coast between the border with Romania, at the village of Durankulak, and the city of Burgas.

Places You Wouldn't Want To Live in The U.K.
When most people imagine the United Kingdom, they think of London, wry humor and polite people. It might seem unthinkable that Great Britain has some real dung piles among its treasures but these 5 cities will have you wondering why there is a “Great” in front of “Britain”. At number 5. Sandwell The available jobs in this West Midlands town are so poorly paid that the average resident has zero disposable income. The good news for locals is that Sandwell has a pretty high mortality rate, so they don’t have to suffer for very long. At Number 4. Gwent Valleys No matter which metric you choose to measure Gwent Valleys scores poorly. Crime? Check. Poor healthcare? Check. A-hole teenagers all around? Oh yeah. In a country that’s filled with coastline and rolling hills, Gwent Valleys has none of that. It’s just the worst. At Number 3. High Wycombe Petty crime and drug use are present; as is a low employment rate. The little money High Wycombe does have it spends on the schools which is great. Of course, that doesn’t do the average tourist any good. At Number 2. Southampton Southampton is simply filled with half-destroyed buildings blotting the landscape. To be fair, the place was bombed in World War II. That is a pretty solid excuse, but on the other hand, they’ve had the better part of eighty years to get the place back in order … And at number 1. Morecambe In the 1930s, luminaries like Coco Chanel used to hang out in Morecambe These days, Morecambe is more known for its dilapidation. The coastline outside the city is stunning, but if you’re being completely honest, coasts aren’t exactly a point of pride, and neither is Morecambe. Where do you think the worst place in Great Britain is? Discuss Below. Get more Tips here! http://www.destinationtips.com

Since its release, people stopped depending on maps or printing out directions. Instead, all people have to do now is download the app onto their phone, and they have their own GPS system in the palm of their hand that is up to date and connected to the Internet. If you don’t know what your destination looks like, all you need to do is type in the address into Google Maps and you can see where you’re going and know what to look for. Along with Google Maps, Google Earth has given people the ability to look at destinations from an aerial view using satellite images and terrain views where you can actually look at the location in its truest form and not just colored lines and labeling. Nowadays, people have seen the “Google Cars” driving around their town with a bunch of cameras in a ring for the purpose of capturing as much information as possible to be uploaded online. But with such technology, there is always a risk when it comes to national security. With such amazing technology, terrorists and other people who don’t have good intentions can scope out their target on Google Maps and plan out their attack. In order to protect the public and that location, Google Maps will blur or black out locations that aren’t allowed to be seen by the general public. In this video, are ten places that you’re not allowed to see on Google Maps.

Carl Matthew Brand, US army, walking along , then offered flowers by local resident 20. SOUNDBITE: (English) Carl Matthew Brand, US army: "We have no security concerns from Batumi at all." 21. Brand driving away in vehicle STORYLINE: An oil train exploded and caught fire on Sunday in central Georgia, sending plumes of black smoke into the air. Georgian Interior Ministry spokesman Shota Utiashvili said the train had hit a mine. He said there were no casualties, but that the blast had also set off explosions at an abandoned munitions dump nearby. The Russian Defence Ministry declined to comment, saying it was not clear what had happened. Russia pulled the bulk of its troops and tanks from its small southern neighbour on Friday after a brief but intense war, but built up its forces in and around two separatist regions and left other military posts deep inside Georgia. The explosion occurred near the village of Skra, 10 kilometres (6 miles) west of Gori. At the scene, tanker cars lay in a confused jumble, some askew on the railway line and others off the tracks, some lying on their sides, while firemen hosed down the wreckage with foam. Speaking at the site, the director of Georgia's railways, Irakli Ezugbaia, agreed that the blast was probably caused by a mine. He said an investigation was under way and other mines had been found on the tracks. Ezugbaia said the train was carrying crude oil from Kazakhstan that was being transported by an Azerbaijani company. It was destined for a Georgian Black Sea port. Georgia straddles a key westward route for oil from Azerbaijan and other Caspian Sea nations including Kazakhstan, giving it added strategic importance as the U.S. and the European Union seek to decrease Russia's dominance of oil and gas exports from the former Soviet Union. Meanwhile, near the Black Sea port of Poti, Russian soldiers could be seen at their base on Sunday carrying out excavations. Russia pulled the bulk of its troops and tanks from its small southern neighbour on Friday after a brief but intense conflict, but still held positions near Poti. Georgian port officials have said radar, Coast Guard ships and other port facilities were extensively damaged by Russian troops. A U.S. Navy warship carrying humanitarian aid anchored at the Georgian port of Batumi on Sunday, sending a strong signal of support to an embattled ally. The much-needed aid and the damaged train were a stark reminder that it will take substantial amounts of aid and many months of rebuilding before Georgia can recover from the war with Russia. Five days of fighting damaged cities and towns across the country and displaced tens of thousands of Georgians.

12 Creepiest Abandoned Places
From hotels like the Lee Plaza Hotel eerie and deserted to the once beautiful resorts full of tourists these are the most haunting places Subscribe to American Eye http://goo.gl/GBphkv 6. Courbefy, France An entire French resort village was abandoned due to economic hardship in 2012. Courbefy is located in the Limousin region of France toward the middle of the country, 30 miles south of the city of Limoges. The village was complete for stables, swimming pools, and tennis courts to attract tourists. The town is mostly made up of family houses and a town hall. It also sits near a 13th century castle, which adds historical interest to the area. When it was abandoned, the only tourists it attracted were thieves and squatters who needed a place for shelter. The entire building was auctioned off to an American Korean photographer for about a half million Euros. Not too bad of a price considering this man owns a village now for about the price of a two story house. The photos still remain as an eery reminder about this abandoned resort. On google maps it appears as though not much is going on 5. Ryugyong, Pyongyang North Korea The Ryugyong hotel is a pyramid shaped 105 story skyscraper in North Korea’s capital, somewhat similar looking to the skyscraper in San Francisco. It’s also known as building 105 because of the number of stories it has. The construction began in 1987 but as North Korea entered somewhat of an economical crisis, the project was halted.That openings were continually cancelled. The building remains unopened to the public or any tourist. In country a that struggles to maintain electricity through an entire day and feed their citizens properly, this seems like a massive waste of money. In this photo you can see the hotel. Although it appears as an interesting design, what use would it possibly serve where the tourism industry is virtually inexistent. It’s remained off limits to tourists and shrouded in secrecy. 4. Salton Sea Gallons of water were sent gushing into a dry lake bed after a storm caused an irrigation canal to flood and break. So the Salton Sea really shouldn’t even exist in that sense. A resort town was built near this body of water. Many people once flocked here to soak up the sun, go jet skiing and drive fancy boats in the booming 50’s and 60’s. Not all good things last forever and this place quickly turned into an ecological nightmare due to pesticides and fertilizers from nearby farms. It became much too polluted to sustain life even for fish. The inhabitants quickly fled once the smell of the water became unbearable. To this day, dead fish litter the once popular beaches, leaving a rotten egg like smell that would be enough to scare off any urban explorer. 3. Costa Concordia Not all abandoned resorts are on the land. In 2012, the luxury cruise ship called the Costa Concordia struck a rock near the island of Giglio Island, off the coast of Tuscany. This caused the ship to sink. Luckily a photographer by the name of Jonathan Kielkowski was able to take the photos of this eery abandoned resort cruise ship. This place seems like it may be haunted considering the fact that 32 people died during the crash. At one point she was carrying a grand total of 4200 people. The cruise ship is now covered in bright green coral and blue coral as well as moss throughout. Rusting slot machines litter the ground and hundreds of pieces of debris remained untouched for years. 2 Gagra, Russia Gagra is located along the Black sea and stretches 5 kilometers along the water. The subtropical climate made for a perfect location for Russians who wanted to escape the cold winters but with war in the area the town became quickly depopulated. In 1989 it had had a population of 26,636 but it was left as a lost paradise when hundreds of Georgian citizens were expelled from their homes and many were massacred, turning it into a complete ghost town. The war-torn land turned Ghagra from a beautiful tourist attraction to a grim dark place where many murders took place. Many still claim the land is still haunted to this day. 1. Palace Hotel, Croatia In 1990’s Croatia or Yugoslavia at that time had it’s own beautiful resorts and a luxurious resort was built on the island of Krk. Yugoslavia encouraged tourism from all around the world after the the soviet union had crumbled. It was a great place for Europeans of all countries to party, drink champagne, indulge in caviar. Here in this photo you see the deserted Palace Hotel Pool that was once a great gathering place for tourists. While the hotel catered to the extremely wealthy quite well, the middle class citizens didn’t spend nearly as much as they were expecting, causing them to close their doors.

Desert landscape draws tourists
(18 Oct 2018) LEADIN: An unusual sandy desert near Ukraine's Black Sea coast is proving popular with toursits.   Oleshky Sands is a barren infertile place, but visitors are now putting this dramatic landscape on the map. STORYLINE : A vast expanse of sand covers a large area kilometers in the south of Ukraine. This huge desert in the heart of Eastern Europe is known as Oleshky Sands, about 30 kilometers from the Black Sea coast. A few hundred years ago this was grassy plains but in the 18th and 19th centuries sheep farming caused the grass to die off.   The root system that binded the sandy soil was lost and the soil turned to sand and began to engulf the region. The barren landscape has in recent years become a popular tourist attraction. "Our desert is one of the biggest sandy areas in Europe. We have more than only barchans (a crescent-shaped shifting sand dune) and landscapes as other deserts do. We have plants, trees, shrubs. There are many animals - wolves, hares. There are even fish in the lakes. That distinguishes us from other deserts, we have not just sands," says Yana Demydova, inspector of National Park "Oleshky Sands". Olexander Khybenko, a guide of a tourist company explains its appeal: "This is the phenomenon which can be seen only abroad as many thought, for example in Sahara, Turkey, Egypt, places with sea coasts. This phenomenon is very unusual for Ukraine and very beautiful at the same time. That's why people visit us to see this beauty." Visitor Mykola Fisayuk says it is beautiful: ""There is an incredible beauty here. My first thought when I came here was how is Ukraine, which is known for its black earth, situated in such a huge sand area? But the forest on the skyline is pleasing to the eye. And there are more and more plants growing in the desert." Oleshky Sands has barchans, crescent-shaped shifting sand dunes, which are up to 20 meters high in some places. It is also home to oases and sandstorms. In the summer air temperatures can reach up to 45 degrees celsius and the temperature of the surface of the sand can reach 75 degrees celsius. The region became a national park in 2010 and so far in 2018 around 2,600 tourists visited the desert in organized guided tours, according to Yana Demydova, inspector of National Park "Oleshky Sands". But these figures are not exact, because there are many places where people can access the area by themselves. Approximately 70,000 people live in the villages and towns on the edge of the desert. The nearest city is Kherson is 30 kilometers from Oleshky Sands. The main regional industry is the cultivation of fruits and vegetables, as well as tourism.   In order to stop the spread of the sand, pine forests were planted in the 20th century. "This was an edge of the desert in the time. The huge sand hills were moving. They had been moving, coming closer and closer to people's settlements as there were no houses at that time. The sands buried them. So people came to this region and planted these trees. It took some time for them to take root. Now there some places where the pines are holding the sandy soil together their roots like real people," explains ecologist Volodymyr Sheludko.   More tree planting is planned for early 2019, when 30 hectares of pine trees will be planted to stem the sandy tide. The sandy area is 161,000 hectares (1,610 square kilometers). And the whole area including forests and sands is 210,000 hectares, 2,100 square kilometers.

RESISTANCE | PUBG Unofficial trailer
Unofficial trailer for the game: PLAYERUNKNOWNS BATTLEGROUNDS, this video is based on the lore of erangel: "Erangel is a fictional island in the black sea abandoned near Russia where a military occupation was controlling it. The military occupation tested chemical/biological experiments on the islands population. After a resistance attack on a biological facility, the island had to be abandoned. Erangel was originally occupied by Soviet forces from the 1950’s onwards and was used as a military testing facility, which explains the military base as well as the hospital and storage facilities. A local resistance movement fought to reclaim the island which eventually lead to the island becoming abandoned. The electrical field that you see wreaking havoc on the island is powered by electrical emitters which were used to contain towns that were showing signs of revolting against the Soviet forces."

AP Television crew filmed a convoy travelling through the outskirts of Senaki and into the small town of Chkhorotsku in the central-western part of the country. Some of the soldiers wore blue helmets suggesting they might be part of Russia's peacekeeping force. Moscow deployed what it says are peacekeepers in South Ossetia in the wake of the 1992 separatist war, in which the province gained de-facto independence from Georgia. AP Television filmed the Russian convoy, which included seven armoured personnel carriers (APCs) and five trucks, travelling on minor roads around Senaki, a town near the port city of Poti. They were then seen entering the nearby small town of Chkhorotsku, to the surprise of the local population. "Their behaviour is not according to the rules. They are not doing anything according to the agreement between the two countries," said local resident, Saimon Ahalaia. Locals told AP Television they had seen a small Russian convoy pass through just a day earlier. Russian troops were also seen on Wednesday at the bank of the river Rioni, at the edge of Black Sea port city of Poti. The troops were filmed by AP Television digging trenches and creating mortar positions and defensive lines. The troops are positioned at what's thought to be a key entry point of the Poti city, and its main bridge. Elsewhere, Georgian security officials on Wednesday allowed a Russian convoy to pass through one of its checkpoints on the outskirts of Igoeti, about 30 miles (50 kilometres) west of the capital Tbilisi.

The shores of Lake Chapala, about an hour south of Guadalajara, with lots of expat Americans and Canadians. While there are several other towns around the lake where expats live, for sake of simplicity and because Ajijic is the best known, for this article, we’ll just refer to the whole area as Ajijic. Now, back to our discussion.) Virtually everything about Ajijic is moderate and pleasant. For example: Ajijic has about the same latitude as Puerto Vallarta or the Western Sahara, so if it were at sea level and all other factors being equal, it would be about as hot. But Ajijic is not at sea level—it’s located in the Mexican Highlands at about a mile elevation (the same as Denver), which lowers the temperature. In addition to this, Ajijic is on Lake Chapala (the largest lake in Mexico), which moderates the temperatures even further. It’s virtually never too hot or too cold in the Ajijic area, with average highs in the 70s and sometimes 80s and lows in the 50s. Even Goldilocks would approve.

Turkey Black Sea Region
http://www.iwasinturkey.com azure waters of the Mediterranean, Aegean, Marmara and Black Sea surround Turkey to the south, west and north, making a treasure chest of coves, inlets, bays and beaches in which yachtsmen can choose a different and private anchorage each night. The sailing paradise of Turkey is also home to the Mavi Yolculuk, or Blue Voyage, an idyllic cruise which travels to the private beach of Cleopatra, the eternal fires of Mount Olimpos and the remains of thousands of ancient civilisations. Sailing in Turkey also allows visitors to experience the hospitality of the people in the coastal villages and towns. The tempered winds blowing from west and northwest make the long summers ideal for yachting, and seem to encourage an appreciation of nature. From some of the turquoise coast's unspoilt and sheltered bays you can see mountain peaks rising to almost 3000 meters above the sea level.

New Istanbul Airport Tour Turkey
Walking through the new Istanbul Airport in Turkey from the arrivals gates at International transfers through the terminals shops and restaurants. Istanbul Airport (IATA: IST, ICAO: LTFM) (Turkish: İstanbul Havalimanı)[3] is the main international airport serving Istanbul, Turkey. It is located in the Arnavutköy district on the European side of the city. All scheduled commercial passenger flights were transferred from Istanbul Atatürk Airport to Istanbul Airport on 6 April 2019, following the closure of Istanbul Atatürk Airport for scheduled passenger flights.[4] The IATA airport code IST was also transferred to the new airport.[5] Once fully completed, it will accommodate 200 million passengers a year Due to a lack of space to construct an additional runway at Istanbul Atatürk Airport, airport growth being restricted due to the growth of the city, the Turkish Airport Authority not allowing additional cargo or charter flights to the airport, and worsening air traffic congestion, it was decided to construct a new airport to serve Istanbul. Furthermore, due to a lack of slot capacity and parking spaces, some of Turkish Airlines' aircraft were based in Sabiha Gökçen Airport[citation needed] which itself is already at maximum terminal capacity of 25 million passengers, and handled 28 million passengers in 2015 after posting traffic growth rates averaging over 20% a year since 2013.[citation needed] Atatürk Airport was one of the busiest airports in Europe. Since 2013, it has ranked among the five busiest airports in Europe by passenger traffic. In 2017, the two Istanbul airports handled over 100 million passengers.[7] In terms of area airports, the six London-area airports serve more than 150 million passengers a year, while the three Paris-area airports serve around 100 million passengers a year. Location[edit] It was decided to construct the new airport at the intersection of roads to Arnavutköy, Göktürk, and Çatalca, north of central Istanbul and between the Black Sea coast towns of Yeniköy [tr], Tayakadın and Akpınar. The area is a 7,659-hectare region near Lake Terkos. Some 6,172 hectares of this area was state-owned forest. The distance between Istanbul Airport and Atatürk Airport is approximately 35 km (22 mi). The area encompassed old open-pit coal mines, which were later filled up with soil.[8] According to the Environmental Impact Assessment (ÇED) report published in April 2013, there were a total of 2,513,341 trees in the area and 657,950 of them would need to be cut indispensably, while 1,855,391 trees would be moved to new places. However, the Ministry of Forest and Water Management claimed the exact number of trees cut and moved would only be revealed after construction was complete.[8] Description credit to Wilipedia

Floating in the Dead Sea ...You Can't Sink! - Interesting Facts
The Dead Sea (Hebrew: יָם הַמֶּלַח, Yam ha-Melah, "Sea of Salt", also Hebrew: יָם הַמָּוֶת, Yam ha-Mavet, "The Sea of Death", and Arabic: البحر الميت‎‎ About this sound Al-Bahr al-Mayyit (help·info)), also called the Salt Sea, is a salt lake bordered by Jordan to the east and Israel and Palestine to the west. Its surface and shores are 429 metres (1,407 ft) below sea level, Earth's lowest elevation on land. The Dead Sea is 304 m (997 ft) deep, the deepest hypersaline lake in the world. With 34.2% salinity (in 2011), it is 9.6 times as salty as the ocean, and one of the world's saltiest bodies of water. This salinity makes for a harsh environment in which plants and animals cannot flourish, hence its name. The Dead Sea is 50 kilometers (31 mi) long and 15 kilometers (9 mi) wide at its widest point. It lies in the Jordan Rift Valley and its main tributary is the Jordan River. The Dead Sea water has a density of 1.24 kg/liter, which makes swimming similar to floating. Biblical period- Dwelling in caves near the Dead Sea is recorded in the Hebrew Bible as having taken place before the Israelites came to Canaan, and extensively at the time of King David. Just northwest of the Dead Sea is Jericho. Somewhere, perhaps on the southeastern shore, would be the cities mentioned in the Book of Genesis which were said to have been destroyed in the time of Abraham: Sodom and Gomorra (Genesis 18) and the three other "Cities of the Plain", Admah, Zeboim and Zoar (Deuteronomy 29:23). Zoar escaped destruction when Abraham's nephew Lot escaped to Zoar from Sodom (Genesis 19:21-22). Before the destruction, the Dead Sea was a valley full of natural tar pits, which was called the vale of Siddim. King David was said to have hidden from Saul at Ein Gedi nearby. In Ezekiel 47:8-9 there is a specific prophecy that the sea will ".. be healed and made fresh", becoming a normal lake capable of supporting marine life. A similar prophecy is stated in Zechariah 14:8, which says that "Living waters will go out from Jerusalem, half of them to the eastern sea (likely the Dead Sea) and half to the western sea (the Mediterranean)..." Greek and Roman period- Aristotle wrote about the remarkable waters. The Nabateans and others discovered the value of the globs of natural asphalt that constantly floated to the surface where they could be harvested with nets. The Egyptians were steady customers, as they used asphalt in the embalming process that created mummies. The Ancient Romans knew the Dead Sea as "Palus Asphaltites" (Asphalt Lake). King Herod the Great built or rebuilt several fortresses and palaces on the western bank of the Dead Sea. The most famous was Masada, where in 70 CE a small group of Jewish zealots fled after the fall of the destruction of the Second Temple. The zealots survived until 73 CE, when a siege by the X Legion ended in the deaths by suicide of its 960 inhabitants. Another historically important fortress was Machaerus (מכוור), on the eastern bank, where, according to Josephus, John the Baptist was imprisoned by Herod Antipas and died. Also in Roman times, some Essenes settled on the Dead Sea's western shore; Pliny the Elder identifies their location with the words, "on the west side of the Dead Sea, away from the coast ... [above] the town of Engeda" (Natural History, Bk 5.73); and it is therefore a hugely popular but contested hypothesis today, that same Essenes are identical with the settlers at Qumran and that "the Dead Sea Scrolls" discovered during the 20th century in the nearby caves had been their own library. Josephus identified the Dead Sea in geographic proximity to the ancient Biblical city of Sodom. However, he referred to the lake by its Greek name, Asphaltites. Various sects of Jews settled in caves overlooking the Dead Sea. The best known of these are the Essenes of Qumran, who left an extensive library known as the Dead Sea Scrolls. The town of Ein Gedi, mentioned many times in the Mishna, produced persimmon for the temple's fragrance and for export, using a secret recipe. "Sodomite salt" was an essential mineral for the temple's holy incense, but was said to be dangerous for home use and could cause blindness. The Roman camps surrounding Masada were built by Jewish slaves receiving water from the towns around the lake. These towns had drinking water from the Ein Feshcha springs and other sweetwater springs in the vicinity. Byzantine period- Intimately connected with the Judean wilderness to its northwest and west, the Dead Sea was a place of escape and refuge. The remoteness of the region attracted Greek Orthodox monks since the Byzantine era. Their monasteries, such as Saint George in Wadi Kelt and Mar Saba in the Judean Desert, are places of pilgrimage.

Europe's oldest town discovered:Dead sliced in half, and buried from pelvis up
Residents of what is thought to be Europe's oldest town cut their dead in half and buried them from the pelvis up, according to archaeologists. The newly discovered ancient settlement, thought to date back to 4700BC, is near the Bulgarian town of Provadia, about 25 miles from the country's Black Sea coast. Archaeology professor Vassil Nikolov led the dig which focused on the town itself and its necropolis, where the strange and complex burial rituals were discovered. 'Now we can say that the Provadia salt pans location is the oldest town in Europe, [dating from] roughly 4700 to 4200BC,' he told CNN. There is as yet no clue as to why some corpses have been sliced in half and buried from the pelvis up, but researchers found evidence to show some residents of the salt-producing area were wealthy people. Professor Nikolov told the Sofia Globe the town's 300 to 350 residents lived in two-storey homes and earned their living mining the surrounding area for salt, which was as important to the ancient world as oil is today. 'The salt water was evaporated by different techniques in ceramic bowls,' Professor Nikolov told CNN. 'Salt produced was used as money because salt was essential for both humans and animals.' The nearby town of Provadia remains an important salt centre to this day, with much foreign investment in the area devoted to extracting the stuff. But in ancient times Provadia-Solnitsata would have needed little in the way of outside money since, as the only place in the Balkans where salt was produced at the time, it was the 'mint' of the region. To protect their wealth, their town was surrounded by stone walls three metres high and a phenomenal two metres thick, which researchers believe are the earliest and most massive fortifications of Europe's pre-history. Other findings suggested that even 7,000 years ago the residents of the town had already developed a class system. Archaeologist Margarita Lyuncheva, a member of Professor Nikolov's team, told CNN that finds of spiral copper needles for hairdressing in some graves showed 'there are two grades of people, [one] probably with higher social status'. She added: 'We think that women had a sort of bun-shaped hairstyle.' British, Japanese and German scientists have so far confirmed the Bulgarian team's findings, which were made during a two-month dig over the summer. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-2224702/Residents-Europes-oldest-town-sliced-dead-half-buried-pelvis-up.html http://originalpeople.org

Scientists from the Oregon State University state that the 66-foot-long deck has around 13 pounds of organisms per square foot. The dock did not show any signs of radiation from the Fukushima nuclear plant meltdown caused by the tsunami, but it did pose the threat of carrying invasive species. What that means is that these creatures that aren’t natives to the area could potentially throw the local ecosystems out of whack and cause irreparable damage to the native wildlife, such as the dread zebra mussel. 5. A Mystery Creature There have been some unusual things that have washed up on random shores after tsunamis, this being one of them. After the 2011 tsunami hit, this giant white mass had been washed out onto the shore of Japan and had many of the locals, along with everyone who watched this video on YouTube, wondering what it even was? Some thought it to be a brand new creature that had risen from the dark depths of the ocean floor while others speculated it was merely a large rock or boulder. Don’t worry, officials have concluded that this isn’t some new species that’s going to wipe us out. They simply stated that it’s most likely just a mass of whale blubber from the carcass of a dead whale that’s pretty much unrecognizable. 4. A Shipping Tote Back in November of 2014, this shipping tote had washed up near the shores of Seal Rock in Oregon. This 4-by-5 foot plastic shipping tote had been floating out at sea for the last 3 years since the tsunami struck and amassed around 200 blue mussels that were attached to it. Like the dock that was found in 2012, this tote was a potential host for carrying invasive species and scientist eventually determined it as a non-threat to the surrounding environment. Still, the amount of debris, the total estimated to be around 18.11 million tons with 70 percent of the debris sinking to the bottom of the ocean, is still rather high and is still washing up years after that tragic event took place. 3. Various Trash A barge from the fishing town of Ucluelet in British Columbia had carried in around “super sacks” of debris caused by the tsunami. Those sacks are designed to hold up to 1,000 pounds, so you can only imagine how heavy all that weight could possibly be. Ever since the tsunami struck, there have been volunteer pickups in the town where local and Japanese students have gotten involved. They’ve managed to collect all different sorts of garbage such as styrofoam, pieces of Japanese houses, and other debris. Though they’ve made progress, their results haven’t been achieved through smooth sailing. The coastline of Ucluelet is described as remote and rugged which made the cleanups very difficult and the fact that there was already debris unrelated to the tsunami already there makes for even more trash than expected. 2. An Entire Ship This yacht happened to be discovered in the Iwate Prefecture in Northeastern Japan in the town of Otsuchi nearly two months after the tsunami had hit. The ship weighs in at an incredible 200 tons and it’s a huge surprise that the two-story building that is supporting all that weight is still somehow managing to keep from collapsing. It’s hard to even process the amount of force needed to lift the ship. 1. A House As one of the most powerful and deadly disasters that can occur in nature, the tsunami is one that leaves devastation in its wake. Their sheer force can only be imagined by those who have never witnessed what it can be capable of at first hand and even then you can never come close to doing it justice. Take for example this house that was a part of the Fukushima debris. This was someone’s entire home where they built a life for themselves around it and in a matter of moments, it was swept off its foundation and carried out into the sea, along with what is estimated to be another 200,000 buildings.

The Old Europe: Danube Valley Civilization (5000-3500 BC)
The European Cradle. Old Europe: Danube Valley Civilization 5000 - 3500 BC. The first high culture in the world originated in the Balkans, Europe Before the glory that was Greece and Rome, even before the first cities of Mesopotamia or temples along the Nile, there lived in the Lower Danube Valley and the Balkan foothills people who were ahead of their time in art, technology and long-distance trade. Old Europe was among the most culturally rich regions in the world. Its inhabitants lived in prosperous agricultural towns. The ubiquitous goddess figurines found in their houses and shrines have triggered intense debates about women's roles. The people of this region founded new settlements in the Danube Valley. Scientists call this society Danube Civilization. This people were the first in history who used copper tools, they lived in two-storied houses and sat on chairs, while the rest of the world was stuck in the middle of the Stone Age. And they invented writing. oldest copper mines of the world, bake bread using ovens that are 8000 years old.This culture lived 2000 years in peace as an equivalent society. But then, they discovered gold. This marks the end of the Danube Civilization. Warriors from the Russian steppe extinguished this society 6000 years ago. The era of money and power began.The heart of Old Europe was in the lower Danube valley, in contemporary Bulgaria, Romania, Serbia and Moldova. Old European copper smiths were the most advanced metal artisans in the world. Their intense interest in acquiring copper, Aegean shells, and other rare valuables gave rise to far-reaching trading networks. In their graves, the bodies of Old European chieftains were adorned with pounds of gold and copper ornaments. Their funerals were without parallel in the Near East or Egypt. An unparalleled introduction to Old Europe's cultural, technological, and artistic legacy,For 1,500 years, starting earlier than 5000 B.C., they farmed and built sizable towns, a few with as many as 10,000 dwellings. They mastered large-scale copper smelting, the new technology of the age. Their graves held an impressive array of exquisite headdresses and necklaces and, in one cemetery, the earliest major assemblage of gold artifacts to be found anywhere in the world. The striking designs of their pottery speak of the refinement of the culture's visual language. Until recent discoveries, the most intriguing artifacts were the ubiquitous terracotta "goddess" figurines, originally interpreted as evidence of the spiritual and political power of women in society. At its peak, around 4500 B.C., said David W. Anthony, the exhibition's guest curator, "Old Europe was among the most sophisticated and technologically advanced places in the world" and was developing "many of the political, technological and ideological signs of civilization." Admiring the colorful ceramics, Dr. Bagnall, a specialist in Egyptian archaeology, remarked that at the time "Egyptians were certainly not making pottery like this. The story now emerging is of pioneer farmers after about 6200 B.C. moving north into Old Europe from Greece and Macedonia, bringing wheat and barley seeds and domesticated cattle and sheep. They established colonies along the Black Sea and in the river plains and hills, and these evolved into related but somewhat distinct cultures, archaeologists have learned. The settlements maintained close contact through networks of trade in copper and gold and also shared patterns of ceramics. The Spondylus shell from the Aegean Sea was a special item of trade. Perhaps the shells, used in pendants and bracelets, were symbols of their Aegean ancestors. Other scholars view such long-distance acquisitions as being motivated in part by ideology in which goods are not commodities in the modern sense but rather "valuables," symbols of status and recognition.

7 MYSTERIOUS Native American Locations
FROM STRANGE VALLEYS, TO ANCIENT ABANDONED TOWNS, THESE ARE 7 MYSTERIOUS NATIVE AMERICAN LOCATIONS HEY YOU ! There are more awesome videos being made every week, like and subscribe to World Unearthed so you don't miss a beat ! 7.Bighorn Medicine Wheel | Wyoming | Unknown Tribes Some 10,000 feet above sea level, hidden deep in Wyoming’s Big Horn mountain range, lies a strange and old stone formation. The stones are arranged in a wheel formation, hence the name. Medicine Wheels are also referred to as sacred hoops and they are primarily used for astronomical and sacred ritual purposes. These landmarks are not unique to Wyoming, 100s of medicine wheels have been discovered all across America. But, just like this one, many were built many moons ago by unknown tribes. 6.Crater Lake | Oregon | Klamath With a maximum depth of 1,949 ft (594m), Crater lake is the deepest lake in the United States, and the 9th deepest in the world.Or the 7th if you don’t include some lakes, or the 3rd if you measure by average depth, or the 1st if you measure by average depth while being totally above sea level. Whatever rocks your boat I guess. Crater lakes are not created from impact craters but by calderas, aka volcanic craters. Located in Oregon, the caldera was formed around 7,700 years by the collapse of the Mount Mezuma volcano. Science says that the massive eruption put out around 12 cubic miles (50 cubic kilometers) of volcanic rock. After the collapse of mount mezuma, lava eruptions created Wizard Island and other volcanic domes that rise above current water levels. It took 1000s of years before the caldera actually filled up with water since it only accumulated from rain and snow melt. 6.Gila Wilderness | New Mexico | Mogollon Tribe The Gila Wilderness stretches over an area of 27 by 39 miles and was one of the first recognized areas in America as a ‘wilderness’ thus putting it under protection United States federal government. The area was once inhabited by the Mimbres people who were a smaller tribe that was part of the bigger, Mogollon tribe somewhere between 200-1400 AD, the Apache also used the area from time to time. Many campers and hikers come here for the 4 to 5-day loop through the wilderness. The area boasts many ghost towns and empty mines ranging in size and age. The most famous of them being the Gila Cliff Dwellings. Built by the Mogollon People, there are 5 alcoves, with a total of 46 rooms. Its estimated that the dwellings were home to 10-15 families. There’s no way to know for sure, but its believed the dwellings were carved out sometime between 1275 and 1400. 5.The Black Hills | South Dakota, Wyoming | Lakota: Ȟe Sápa; Cheyenne: Moʼȯhta-voʼhonáaeva The Black Hills are a mountain range that is covered in dark green trees which gives it a black appearance from a distance. The Black Hills are part of the South Dakota Badlands, which is the famous location of Mount Rushmore and the still uncompleted Crazy Horse Memorial. 3.Chief Mountain | Montana | Blackfoot: Ninaistako 2.The Devil’s Tower | Wyoming | Lakota: Matȟó Thípila In Wyoming, looming overhead is a butte which appears more like a petrified stump that a geological formation. Many names have been attributed to the unusually shaped piece of rock which has odd grooves up and down. The Native Americans attributed many names to the butte such as ‘Bears House’, ‘Bears Lair’, and ‘Tree Rock’. The butte is a rare phenomenon in geology and geologists aren’t certain how the Devil’s Tower formed with such a unique shape. However, there are many theories, but those don’t hold a candle compared to the great tales from the natives about the origins of the massive stone. Considering the Native American name of “bear’s lair” you can see where this is going right ? The Kiowa, Lakota, Cheyenne, Crow, and Arapahoe had varying stories about a GIANT bear living underneath the rock. Oh yeah, you might have seen this rock in “Close Encounters of the Third Kind”, for more on that click in the top right corner ! 1.Monument Valley | Utah, Arizona | Navajo: Tsé Biiʼ Ndzisgaii Likely the most mesmerizing Native American site on this list, Monument Valley draws thousands of visitors a year to see the amazing scenic route. Located in Navajo Land on the Arizona-Utah border, the valley is filled with many homes of Navajo People. The sandstone towers are the graveyard of a rocky mountain range which has been eroded down by thousands of years of wind and water erosion. John Ford featured Monument valley in his western films, making this once remote location, “what moviegoers think of when they imagine the American West” There are special names for many of the rock formations, like the elephant butte, the three sisters, spearhead mesa, and the north window.

Borjomi's First Snowfall December 2, 2015
First snowfall in Borjomi as taken from village Likani (the start of the way to the Borjomi-Kharagauli National Park) to the town center near Crowne Plaza Hotel Borjomi. During summer, this is a favourite tourist destinations when the temperatures in Tbilisi and Black Sea soars up, the weather in Borjomi stays at a comfortable degree (about 24-28 degrees). There is a newly renovated outdoor thermal pool inside the Borjomi Park about an hour's walk from the entrance. Or you can take the cable car, take a taxi for about 2 kms then walk downhill for about 700 meters. The Borjomi water is believed to be best for those with hang-overs (a common thing in Georgia). The people in the villages and small towns seem to be warmer than those in the cities which might be a universal thing.

Turkey Tourism & Vacations 2016 (HD)
Turkey Tourism & Vacations 2016, Turkey Trip 2016, Attractions in Turkey Travel Videos HD, World Travel Guide http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=World1Tube Turkey (Turkish: Türkiye) is on the Mediterranean, with 97% of it's territory in West Asia and the Middle East, and with a small section in Southeastern Europe separated by the Turkish Straits (Bosphorus, Sea of Marmara, and Dardanelles). With the Black Sea to the north and the Aegean Sea in the west and Mediterranean Sea to the southwest, Turkey is surrounded by Bulgaria and Greece to the west, Armenia, Azerbaijan and Georgia to the northeast, Syria, Iraq and Iran to the southeast. See in Turkey ================ As a general rule, most museums and sites of ancient cities in Turkey are closed on Mondays, although there are numerous exceptions to this. Ancient ruins and architectural heritage At the crossroads of civilizations, all parts of Turkey are full of a mindblowing number of ancient ruins. Hittites, the first indigenous people that rose to found a state in Anatolia—although there is one certain Çatalhöyük preceding them, the earliest settlement ever found to the date in Turkey—left the proof of their existence at the ruins of Hattuşaş, their capital. Ancient Greeks and closely following Romans left their mark mostly in Aegean and Mediterranean Regions, leaving behind the marble ruins of hundreds of cities, temples, and monuments. Some are largely restored to their former glory, such as Ephesus as well as numerous others along the Aegean coast which are on the checklist of most travellers to Turkey, along with some more obscure ones off the beaten path such as Aphrodisias near Denizli, and Aizonai. In the meantime, some other indigenous peoples, such as Lycians, were carving beautiful tombs—many of which are fairly well preserved and can be seen all around Lycia—for their dearly departed ones onto the rocky hillsides. Legendary Troy stands out as an example of different civilizations literally living on the top of each other. While what is visible today is clearly Hellenistic, the place has its roots as Hittite Wilusa, and later re-built many times over by Ancient Greeks. Perhaps the most unique "architectural" heritage in the country, some of the Cappadocian cave houses and churches carved into "fairy chimneys" and underground cities (in a literal sense!) date back to early Christians hiding from persecution. Successors of Romans, the Byzantines, broke new ground with more ambitious projects, culminating in grand Hagia Sophia of Istanbul, built in 537, and which had the distinction of being the largest cathedral in the world for almost a thousand years. Most of Byzantine heritage intact today is found in Marmara Region, especially in Istanbul, although a stray monastery or two dating back to the era can be found in almost any part of the country. Seljuks, the first ever Turkic state to be founded in Asia Minor, built most of their monuments—which incorporates large majestic portals and heavily delicate stonework, reminiscent of some landmarks in parts of Asia—in major centres of the time in Eastern and Central Anatolia, especially in Konya, their capital. Ottomans, who had considered themselves as a Balkan state until their demise, built most of their landmarks in Balkans and the natural extension of Balkans within today's Turkey—Marmara Region—just like the Byzantines, whom the Ottomans inspired to in so many ways. Most of the earlier Ottoman monuments were built in Bursa, which have little Byzantine and comperatively large Seljuk influences, and later, when the dynasty moved to Europe, in Edirne, some of the major landmarks of which exhibit some kind of "transitional" and fairly experimental style. It wasn't until the Fall of Constantinople that the Ottomans adopted Byzantine architecture almost full scale with some adjustments. However, the Ottoman imperial architecture possibly reached its zenith not in Istanbul, but in Edirne—in the form of Selimiye Mosque, a work of Sinan, the great Ottoman architecture of 16th century. 19th century brought back the Greek and Roman taste of architectural styles, so there was a huge explosion of neo-classical architecture, as much fashionable in Turkey as in the much of the rest of the world at that time. Galata side of Istanbul, Izmir (though unfortunately most of which was lost to the big fire of 1922), and numerous towns along the coasts, one most prominent and well preserved example being Ayvalık, quickly filled with elegant neo-classical buildings.
