a lot of these museums from what i had read but this goes far beyond all my expectations is incredible is the same thing. and you can only dream about it's absolutely that since i can for one art and the building all together it's just. a sleazy amazing feat. we had a great tour guide and she showed us just a small piece of it but a small piece we've seen is just incredible we have a private tour and i think it's better we can see a few more things get better understand. things they always asked a lot of. the palace boasts almost two thousand windows and over a thousand elegantly and largest decorated rules and rooms many of which are open to the public. is this a macy's that's a see the exhibits in her massage you have to do twenty five miles perhaps even
move fascinating at least for those interested in the shoes glory days it's not just bush insistences of the exhibits illuminating brushes imperial past also the rundown of the hermitage treasures would be complete without mentioning the museum stealing collection of western european art the states from the thirteenth century onwards michelangelo money goes matisse the hermitage collection is like a who's who of history. believe a hole on the first floor was designed in an eclectic style and with a second start in eight hundred fifty eight in serious here are just breasts aka it occupies the northern territory of the small habits and that the main focal point is this amazing peacock clock. from seven hundred ninety seven to the present day the peacock close as you will the hematologist most famous exhibits the figures of a peacock cuckoo an owl that formed part of this elaborate fine piece of tissue with mechanisms that set them in motion today's it's one of the few of its size
still in working condition. see how trust everybody was but it's really interesting to see so many people from different places gathered together to see something so unique. is a beautiful especially when it keeps happening when you're on it as it made me even see the famous school room a collection of antiquities including a large number of gold artifacts. bracelets rings earrings and male female clothing decorations the russian sauce lives surrounded by wealth and luxury the earliest looks in the gold ring here date back to the fourth millennium b.c. gold in russia became popular via siberia and the black sea the wealth includes a of course it's an abundance of gem stones the spot behind the splendor of the york in courts while in your precious stones were only on ladies' clothes in russia men rivaled women in self to her racial bigotry still lives with gold and diamonds
only in russia russian and western painting sculpture applied only prehistoric period to the early twentieth century is displayed in hundreds of holes if you do visit. or a group guided tour to have it's hard because information overload is. all you guys come in several languages is true is given a number which you press when entering you'd simply be lost without a guard of some sort in the high massage one of the highlights of the museum is a collection of paintings by leonardo da vinci called madonna and child it is really to be painted in the land of the artist lives in forty eight to the image shows a beautiful little child the personification of maternal love their only child works so they are not a left in the world to them we have in this museum i it is an title to not only tell and is very famous for its elegance and beauty and i was challenged their
mandate after my. textbooks at school and i was really impressed when i searched for the first time after a ten years ago i l m that is just a general jabs based museum and one of the best in the world even if you were not an author level story and will only be impressed with what amazon has on offer as a museum and a grand palace and want a visit to the state how much more she said it is but it's. i think he will never forget. leaving the hematologist now let's continue our journey crossing the street to the river side next to the hematologist and you'll see various points stands and a large jetty this is where we'll catch otters for boat to peterhof the journey takes twenty minutes because much of southern traveling by car or train you can see on final destination here in italy have to travel around the entire coastline to get to the world part in a state taking a boat or foss huddersfield to the area called pretty good for us because the
journey time down considerably. and this year we are. nothing was it about it it's about the state museum reserve peterhof is a big complex wishing to use the palace of peter the great instrument the alexandria park upper and lower parks a pier hoff and also parks and palaces in all ramey embalm each year more than four million tourists visit peterhof on the area is named one of the wonders of russia when you plan your visit here make sure you cover the whole day just thoroughly enjoy it this is silly. in my opinion this is one of the most to taking sides in russia. the passing part of peter hart often referred to as the brushing aside. the french palace was the inspiration for a piece of the great design and to build
a similar complex in the suburbs of his new city the window to your. piece off which means it's close in jail it is easy to leap a little pieces ground and priscilla's about the walls of the expansion of the grand palace. peterhof was ravaged and searched the destroyed by the german troops during the second world war it was one of the first to be resurrected and i saw the work of military engineers are the ones. thousand volunteers basically states may destruction has been fully restored by nine hundred forty seven the most famous count on someone peterhof is the grand scale with dozens of water jets straightly with breathtaking view surrounded by impressive growth that she's at the center of the famous samson fountain resting in the jaws of a lion erected in the seven hundred thirty s. it was built to represent russia's victory over sweet with.
the grocer behind the great escape which is once used a small policies contains the in the most pipes of original wooden the feet the fountains most business is a stack and when they are told the fountains work only for the use of gravity. it's really beautiful actually more so than we thought looking at photographs that we saw people again generally worth a visit beautiful beautiful and it shows a lot of russian history i like it i think it's spectacular how cool it was still here more than three hundred years ago and it's just awesome and i love the alleyways and the and to all the parks and the amazing council even. in boston for example songs the sea is not just because years later it's very man's perspective secular parklands a piece of hope is remarkable for the sheer variety of styles encompass its layout and features a walk around the gazans is a must for every visitor. representing nearly two centuries of european or socratic
fashion execute to the high standards beautiful is like an encyclopedia of design. remember to bring your camera and listen to the force of mission is not included when you pay if you harder for john to. come rain or shine a trip to the venice of the new foodie something you'll never forget. from your goosebumps the. first time you enter the hematologist dazzling staircase with the single rainbows created by the grand cascades fountain in peace host said his parents consent and vos reconstruction associate. as you can see the state has come to life and for those who come to see the magic of the of the council i suggest you come here quickly this is an. absolutely spectacular one of course a lot so it's how we have from sir the most peaceful attractions here in st
petersburg i'll see you again at the same time next week so until then for me i'll address the crew from peterhof by now the. wealthy british style. market. can find out what's really happening to the global economy for a no holds barred look at the global financial headlines tune in to gaza report on our. it used to be an ideal place for a holiday good old changed in
a moment. the wounds of war are still visible. the republic is not only relieved but also shaping the future. the people of the united states and our friends and allies will not live at the mercy of an outlaw regime that threatens the peace with weapons of mass murder his regime as an act of program to acquire and develop nuclear weapons and let there be no doubt about the know for fact that there are that there. this work has been carried out under the direction of dr david kay respected scientist and former u.n. inspector was leading the weapons search in iraq we are determined to take this apart you have a tremendous a group of dedicated american men and women involved in this with the best assets
of the intelligence community can provide. data cheney is not going to be done with this for quite some time david kay wants more time and he says it could take another six to nine months to make a definitive finding ministration is asking congress for hundreds of millions more six hundred million dollars to fund a continuing search we have not yet found shiny pointy things that i would call a weapon before we can draw from conclusions we need to let the iraq survey group complete its work. we were all wrong probably in my judgment and that is most disturbing. sometimes the true patriots takes the unpopular course but helps the country of origin states and even if they come this way at the same time and patriotism is the last refuge of scoundrels and i think these are scoundrels they have no argument now they have no
defense for what they did the country is in a terrible international security situation and i think it's perilous so they're attacking the patriotism of others. dropping the dollar china again raises the possibility of a new global reserve currency after washington lets the u.s. credit rating slip standard and poor's downgraded america's prized aaa status after losing confidence in the way the latest debt ceiling set standoff was handled. hundreds of thousands of israelis returned to the streets across the country i heard by the high cost of living at an affordable housing crisis some protesters are comparing the demonstrations for those that happened in major at neighboring egypt as they call for widespread reforms to the social inequality. and america suffers its single biggest loss of life in the afghan conflict as a nato helicopter is reportedly down by the taliban thirty u.s.
