1. London

The second most visited city in 2016 (after Bangkok) is the most Instagrammed European destination, and with plenty to see – from the London Eye to Kew Gardens – it’s not hard to see why!

English⬇️ Естесссстно, мы забрались на верх Тауэрского моста. Ну что уж, раз мы были там, надо же везде попасть, где возможно😁 Потом уже пришло осознание💡, что зря мы так прилежно посещаем все достопримечательности🙈 На этой смотровой площадке делать особо нечего 🤷 как, впрочем, и на смотровой монумента, посвящённого великому лондонскому пожару😏 Мы старательно топали 311 ступеней вверх по винтовой лестнице, чтобы в итоге увидеть, что площадка вся закрыта мелкой сеткой😣 Я особенно расстроилась, так как не смогла ничего пофоткать оттуда 😥 И вообще обзор оттуда так себе, Лондон-то порядком вырос за последние 100-200 лет … **************** Of course, we got up onto the Tower Bridge. …Well, why not to if we were there? 😁 but later we realized💡, that we shouldn't have visited every observation point so diligently 🙈 There was absolutely nothing to do on the Tower Bridge🤷, as well as on the deck of The Monument to the Great Fire of London 😏 It wasn't easy to climb 311 stairs along a narrow winding staircase in order to see the deck all covered with a protecting net 😣 I was upset as I couldn't make any pictures there 😥 And generally speaking, the view from the Monument is not so much, perhaps because London has grown a lot during the past 100-200 years … **************************************** London The United Kingdom of Great Britain 🇬🇧 **************************************** #давайПутешествовать #earthpix #earthfocus #earthofficial #awesomeglobe #fantastic_earth #awesome_earthpix #wonderful_places #wonderful_earthpix #destinationearth #beautifuldestination #bestvacations #инстаграмнедели #igers #igersoftheday #travelblog #travelphoto #travelblogger #travelphotography #passionpassport #luxuryworldtraveler #nikonrussia #ngtravelerru #natgeoru #colors_of_day #colors #wonderlust
