Rest for socialites

The quintessence of civilization. If you give each country the tourist characteristics of “one line”, then Monaco is a respectable vacation of a secular type. In the principality there are no outstanding natural beauties, poor fauna, and you can find beaches much more extensive and more affordable – in the same Italy, or on the neighboring French Riviera. But in terms of urban recreation, visiting social receptions and receptions, holding elite celebrations, a cultural program, and simply exploring the outstanding architecture, monuments of art and culture of Europe, this is one of the best places in the world.

Having visited Monaco, you will see how beautiful and harmonious human civilization can be. This, of course, is not about the cleanliness of the streets, and not about the ceremonial decoration of buildings.Not even about the sense of taste and proportion in everything that you meet there. And about how well-maintained and perfect in this small principality every piece of precious land.

The entire center of the small capital of the principality retained a medieval architectural appearance. Whatever the building here is an attraction, from the Cathedral Cathedral of the Napoleon Museum to the Oceanographic Museum or Princess Grace Rosary, where more than five thousand rose bushes of one hundred and fifty different species bloom. The architecture and decoration of the city are brought to perfection with craftsmanship that can be compared with the perfect harmony of Nature itself.

Monte Carlo. You can not ignore the gaming industry, because it is an essential part of recreation in the principality. Las Vegas and Monte Carlo, two famous cities of games and betting, gambling houses and casinos … There is a historical legend that Vegas was built for those who did not have enough money for Monte Carlo. After all, the famous European casino is not by status for the majority. This is true even now – in Monte Carlo there are casinos of the highest level in the world. And the most expensive, of course.

The main one is, in fact, “Monte Carlo” (Le Casino de Monte Carlo) – not just a gambling house, but a real palace. This is the very first European casino, and one of the first in the world, it was opened in 1862. A respectable and chic place, famous all over the world not only as a casino, but also as a work of architectural art.
