The second Top Attraction is well known Empire State Building!

Some basic info about this maybe the most popular building in the world,

From wikipedia: The Empire State Building is 381 meters tall. Its name is derived from the nickname for New York, The Empire State. It stood as the world's tallest building for more than 40 years, from its completion in 1931 until construction of the World Trade Center's North Tower was completed in 1972. Following the destruction of the World Trade Center in 2001, the Empire State Building once again became the tallest building in New York City.

So dream of everyone who visit New York, plan to take few photos from its top.


The Empire State Building was the first building to have more than 100 floors.
It has
- 6,500 windows
- 73 elevators, and there are 1,860 steps from street level to the 102nd floor.

It has a total floor area of 257,211 m2

There are billions of video clips made from ESB, but we suggest next,

Impressive, isn't it?

Naslov teme:  Neuschwanstein Castle - most popular Castle in the world

Neuschwanstein Castle inspired even Walt Disney - the most popular Castle in the world!

So what more to say, Neuschwanstein Castle is a 19th-century Gothic Revival palace on a rugged hill above the village of Hohenschwangau near Füssen in southwest Bavaria, Germany. The palace was commissioned by Ludwig II of Bavaria as a retreat and as a homage to Richard Wagner.


The palace was intended as a personal refuge for the reclusive king, but it was opened to the paying public immediately after his death in 1886.

Since then over 60 million people have visited Neuschwanstein Castle. More than 1.3 million people visit annually, with up to 6,000 per day in the summer.


The palace has appeared prominently in several movies and was the inspiration for Disneyland's Sleeping Beauty Castle.

One cool video clip from air to those castle:

Naslov teme:  First Top Mountain on Top list is Mount Fuji

Now, first Top Mountain on Top list is Mount Fuji

Mount Fuji is the highest mountain in Japan at 3,776.24 m (12,389 ft).

From wikipedia, an active stratovolcano that last erupted in 1707–08, Mount Fuji lies about 60 miles south-west of Tokyo, and can be seen from there on a clear day. Mount Fuji's exceptionally symmetrical cone is a well-known symbol of Japan and it is frequently depicted in art and photographs, as well as visited by sightseers and climbers. It is one of Japan's "Three Holy Mountains" along with Mount Tate and Mount Haku.


In English, the mountain is known as Mount Fuji. Some sources refer to it as "Fujiyama" and "Fuji-san". "Fujiyama" is an incorrect reading of the characters used to spell the mountain itself. Japanese speakers refer to the mountain as "Fuji-san". I think, that everybody know advertise slogan of Fuji film!


Approximately 300,000 people climbed Mount Fuji in 2009. The most popular period for people to hike up Mount Fuji is from July to August, while huts and other facilities are operating.

Buses to the fifth station start running on 1 July. Climbing from October to May is very strongly discouraged, after a number of high-profile deaths and severe cold weather. Most Japanese climb the mountain at night in order to be in a position at or near the summit when the sun rises.

There are four major routes from the fifth station to the summit with an additional four routes from the foot of the mountain. The major routes from the fifth station are (clockwise) the Lake Kawaguchi, Subashiri, Gotemba, and Fujinomiya routes. The routes from the foot of the mountain are the Shojiko, Yoshida, Suyama, and Murayama routes. The stations on different routes are at different elevations. The highest fifth station is located at Fujinomiya, followed by Kawaguchi, Subashiri, and Gotemba.

One remarkable collection of photographies,

Paragliding is also very popular discipline here. Paragliders take off in the vicinity of the fifth station Gotemba parking lot, between Subashiri and Hōei-zan peak on the south side from the Mountain, in addition to several other locations depending on wind direction. Several paragliding schools use the wide sandy/grassy slope between Gotenba and Subashiri parking lots as a training hill.

Naslov teme:  Moulin Rouge - the most popular cabaret in the Word

This post is about the most popular cabaret in the Word, situated on the Montmartre Quarter of Paris, France.

Moulin Rouge is a cabaret built in 1889 by Joseph Oller, who also owned the Paris Olympia. Close to Montmartre in the Paris red-light district of Pigalle on Boulevard de Clichy in the 18th arrondissement, it is marked by the red windmill on its roof. The closest métro station is Blanche.

The Moulin Rouge is best known as the spiritual birthplace of the modern form of the can-can dance. Originally introduced as a seductive dance by the courtesans who operated from the site, the can-can dance revue evolved into a form of entertainment of its own and led to the introduction of cabarets across Europe.

Today the Moulin Rouge is a tourist destination, offering musical dance entertainment for visitors from around the world. Much of the romance of turn-of-the-century France is still present in the club's decor.

Make no mistake, Moulin Rouge is also a 2001 romantic musical film directed, produced, and co-written by Baz Luhrmann.

Naslov teme:  The Grand Canyon Sky walk

Now, we are again in USA. The topic is something Grand.

Guess, it is a Grand Canyon ! and Sky walk

This is a horseshoe shaped tourist attraction in Arizona near the Colorado River on the edge of a side canyon in the Grand Canyon West area in the main canyon. USGS topographic maps show the elevation at the Skywalk's location as 4,770 ft (1,450 m) and the elevation of the Colorado River in the base of the canyon as 1,160 ft (350 m), and they show that the height of the precisely vertical drop directly under the skywalk is between 500 ft (150 m) and 800 ft (240 m).


One panoramic view of this Sky walk,


So, this is one of the topic which need video clip also,

I think that now is clear what mean term Sky walk!

Naslov teme:  Sagrada Familia in Barcelona

And from my side, few sentences about Sagrada Familia,

Basilica and Expiatory Church of the Holy Family, commonly known as the Sagrada Família, is a large Roman Catholic church in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain, designed by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí (1852–1926).
Although incomplete, the church is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and in November 2010 was consecrated and proclaimed a minor basilica by Pope Benedict XVI.


This architectural wonder is mandatory place for everyone who touch Barcelona.


One travel note: Construction on Sagrada Família is not supported by any government or official church sources. Private patrons funded the initial stages. Money from tickets purchased by tourists is now used to pay for the work, and private donations are accepted through the Friends of the Temple. The construction budget for 2009 was €18 million.

Take a look of 3D model,

Naslov teme:  Mont Saint-Michel - Top World Attractions by Travelblog

I will make a tour of my favorite destination, Mont Saint-Michel,

Saint Michael's Mount is a rocky tidal island and a commune in Normandy, France. It is located approximately one kilometre (just over half a mile) off the country's north coast, at the mouth of the Couesnon River near Avranches. The population of the island is 41, as of 2006.


The island is best known as the site of the spectacular and well-preserved Norman Benedictine Abbey of St Michel at the peak of the rocky island, surrounded by the winding streets and convoluted architecture of the medieval town.


And one video for Saint Michaels Mount,

Naslov teme:  Alcatraz - One of Top 25 World’s Attractions

I will try to descibe Alcatraz

Maybe paradoxic, but this is an ex prison.

In USA, Alcatraz Island is an island located in the San Francisco Bay, 2.4 km offshore from San Francisco, California,.

Often referred to as The Rock, the small island early-on served as a lighthouse, a military fortification, a military prison, and a Federal Bureau of Prisons federal prison until 1963.

Later, in 1972, Alcatraz became a national recreation area and received landmarking designations in 1976 and 1986.

Today, the island is a historic site operated by the National Park Service as part of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area and is open to tours. Visitors can reach the island by ferry ride from Pier 33, near Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco. In 2008 the nation's first hybrid propulsion ferry started serving the island.

Alcatraz has been featured in many movies, TV shows, cartoons, books, comics, and games.

From my point of view, The Biggest building ever stored,

Great Wall of China - Welcome

One panoramic photo,

The Great Wall of China is a series of stone and earthen fortifications in northern China, built originally to protect the northern borders of the Chinese Empire against intrusions by various nomadic groups. Several walls have been built since the 5th century BC that are referred to collectively as the Great Wall, which has been rebuilt and maintained from the 5th century BC through the 16th century. One of the most famous is the wall built between 220–206 BC by the first Emperor of China, Qin Shi Huang. Little of that wall remains; the majority of the existing wall was built during the Ming Dynasty.

The Great Wall stretches from Shanhaiguan in the east, to Lop Nur in the west, along an arc that roughly delineates the southern edge of Inner Mongolia. The most comprehensive archaeological survey, using advanced technologies, has concluded that the entire Great Wall, with all of its branches, stretches for 8,851.8 km (5,500.3 mi). This is made up of 6,259.6 km (3,889.5 mi) sections of actual wall, 359.7 km (223.5 mi) of trenches and 2,232.5 km (1,387.2 mi) of natural defensive barriers such as hills and rivers.

Naslov teme:  Great Barrier Reef

And one picturesque view of amazing place in north-east Australia, Great Barrier Reef,

National Geographic video of Great Barrier,

The Great Barrier Reef is the world's largest reef system composed of over 2,900 individual reefs and 900 islands stretching for over 2,600 kilometres (1,600 mi) over an area of approximately 344,400 square kilometres (133,000 sq mi).

The reef is located in the Coral Sea, off the coast of Queensland in north-east Australia.
The Great Barrier Reef can be seen from outer space and is the world's biggest single structure made by living organisms.

This reef structure is composed of and built by billions of tiny organisms, known as coral polyps.

This reef supports a wide diversity of life, and was selected as a World Heritage Site in 1981.

CNN labeled it one of the seven natural wonders of the world.[8] The Queensland National Trust named it a state icon of Queensland.

One interesting fly over the Coral Sea

A large part of the reef is protected by the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park, which helps to limit the impact of human use, such as fishing and tourism. Other environmental pressures on the reef and its ecosystem include runoff, climate change accompanied by mass coral bleaching, and cyclic population outbreaks of the crown-of-thorns starfish.
The Great Barrier Reef has long been known to and used by the Aboriginal Australian and Torres Strait Islander peoples, and is an important part of local groups' cultures and spirituality. The reef is a very popular destination for tourists, especially in the Whitsunday Islands and Cairns regions. Tourism is an important economic activity for the region, generating AU$ 1 billion per year.

Naslov teme:  Re: Top 25 World’s Attractions by Travelblog

I think many of these attractions are made popular by the cities they are in. For instance, I love Rome and while I'm there usually visit the Vatican which is beautiful but so is so many destinations in Rome. The same thing with the Empire State building. I like New York and I think the Empire State building is neat and all, I don't have much reason to see it more than once. I think there's much more interesting things to do and see in New York rather than the Empire State building. As far as best city to see cool attractions, I would have to say Rome. And if you are visiting Rome, then why not also head up the road to Venice, another great city with great attractions.

I do agree with GrettaT, a popular city must have some famous attractions.
