Pearl of the British monarchy

The multicultural city on the Thames, full of sights, mysterious medieval lanes, typical English pubs and indescribable atmosphere. That is London, one of the most-visited capital cities of Europe.

As for the historical monuments, do not miss the Elizabeth Tower, a clock tower with a bell called Big Ben, which is part of the huge complex of parliamentary buildings of Westminster Palace. You can also peek inside the home of the British royal family, Buckingham Palace. Plan your visit to see the Royal Guards Changing Ceremony. It is worth seeing. The royal jewellery can be seen in the Tower of London. Another symbol of London is the unique bridge over the Thame, Tower Bridge and the London Eye. From the 135-metre-tall structure, you can enjoy a breath-taking view of the UK’s metropolis. A beautiful view of the city can also be seen from the Golden Gallery of the dome of St Paul’s Cathedral.

London's museums are also worth a visit. The best known are certainly the British Museum, where you can see, for example, sarcophagi and mummies. Sports lovers can watch soccer, rugby or tennis at amazing sports stadiums and the best tennis courts.

Don’t forget to visit a traditional pub and have a beer or try fish and chips or other traditional English meals, such as jugged hare (a hare stewed in stoneware), roast beef or brown Windsor soup.
