The city that never sleeps

Brooklyn, luxurious Manhattan with its famous skyscrapers, the Bronx and Queens full of friendly immigrants. That is New York, the largest city of the United States of America.

Take a boat trip to the Statue of Liberty on Liberty Island and stop on the way there to see Ellis Island, where the Bureau of Immigration used to be situated. Enjoy the view of the Brooklyn Bridge and visit Wall Street, famous for having the highest concentration of banks and stock exchanges in the world. Stop to see Ground Zero, where you will find the memorial commemorating the victims of 11 September 2001 and a new National September 11 Memorial Museum. You will see not only many photos, but also objects from the very place of the tragedy.

Nature in Central Park and skyscrapers everywhere

For a while, you can escape from the skyscrapers to Central Park where you can see John Lennon’s Memorial in front of the Dakota House or Belvedere Castle, a folly (imitation) of a Scottish castle. Shopping lovers can buy in style in the largest department store, Macy´s on Fifth Avenue.

You will enjoy a beautiful view of the city from the 86th to 102nd floor of the Empire State Building, one of the most popular New York skyscrapers. During your evening stroll, do not miss what is probably the most eventful place in the city, the famous Times Square, with its huge illuminated billboards. And if you love culture, then seeing one of the famous New York musicals in the theatre district near Broadway will definitely be a great experience.
