London was founded by the Romans in ’43 BC, and three decades later, when they invaded Britain,York was founded, in whose land was built a large military fortress. Because of its strategic location in the years London is preferred for the main city of the various conquerors. It is believed that at the time of Edward the Confessor it already was a capital. The first Norman kings briefly have assigned this role to Winchester, but during the reign of the third Norman King Henry I, London again became a center of political life. In turn, York is famous for its numerous uprisings of the local population against the Normans. Furthermore, in the city are found and restored houses and workshops, made by the Vikings.

Nowadays the capital territory is about four times greater than that of York. Population in London is one of the world record holders – there are over 8 million people, while the city of North Yorkshire have only 200,000.

It is famous not only for its architectural landmarks, but also with the “colorful” streets – you can see people of every ethnicity and hear different languages. Every year multicultural influence change the appearance of London more and more. Unlike the capital, York, with its narrow streets and welcoming pubs, has preserved the atmosphere of a typical British town. The busiest part is around the beautiful port, built at the confluence of the rivers Ouse and Foss. There is also one of the favorite places of locals and visitors – the famous pub “King’s Arms”.

The symbols of London did so many that are quite difficult to be listed all. Everyone thinks of the seven bridges over the River Thames, the most famous of which is the Tower Bridge and the castle itself – Tower of London. Perhaps the most popular in the city are the buildings of Parliament and Big Ben – a little known fact is that Big Ben is actually the name of the bell of the clock tower not the tower itself.

On to the Thames is located the giant London Eye – a 137 meters high Ferris wheel! For its construction, which took seven years were engaged hundreds of people from five different countries. Their efforts are definitely well worth because on a clear day the eye views are stretching about 40 km away.

The iconic Minster Cathedral in York was built with much greater persistence. 25 years were needed for the construction. In the cathedral are preserved frescoes and stained glass osemvekovni and the tower she found the whole city. The central part of the city is surrounded by five kilometers long walls built in the Middle Ages and preserved until today.

Right next to the city walls is another symbol of York – St Mary’s ruins. It is believed that the abbey was built in the XIII century. The beautiful ruins, located in a quiet park, are favorite for many tourists.

7 things you should not do in Russia

Each country has its own rules of conduct. If a thing is perceived to be made in one country, it is absolutely taboo in another. See what you should not do in Russia.

  • Do not go on a visiting without a gift

When you are visiting someone, do not go without bringing something. It is customary to bring a gift for the home or just a box of chocolates to the host. You can also bring beverage or maybe flowers. The gesture is important. Be sure, however, that the host in Russia will not be happy if you show up only with a smile on his/her doorstep.

  • Do not allow ladies to pay bill

Russia is one of the countries where it is still considered the man to pay the bill. Therefore we recommend you to take care of the costs of the dinner, if you are meeting with a Russian woman. Also remember small gentlemanly gestures that some are obsolete – pulling the chair, opening the door and taking the coat.

  • Do not ignore the body language

When you communicate with Russians never ignore body language. Russians are pretty open people – for them the hugs, the handshake and even kisses on the cheeks are normal. Remember these little rules, otherwise your attitude may be considered rude and impolite. Also, do not be surprised if during a conversation your companion is too close to you. Avoid lifting your thumb to say okay, this is considered rude.

  • Do not insult their culture

In many countries, tactless remark concerning the culture will be passed over lightly. Not in Russia. Avoid making negative comments about Russian culture, music and art. It will make a good impression if you show knowledge of these issues and say a few kind words.

  • Do not rush with the alcohol

According to the Russian label of behavior, especially in the business world, you should not drink before the first official toast. The same goes for eating. It is customary that guests start eating after the host is sitting at the table and began to eat.

  • Do not joke with the family

In Russia, the family is an institution that is respected. Therefore it is advisable to not tomake jokes with the family of the person or of yours. This is a manifestation of bad manners and is very risky how it is going to be accepted.

  • Be careful with the origin

Not everyone in Russia is Russian even if he/she speaks a language that sounds like Russian. Many citizens of Russia are of other ethnic groups or nationalities, so you must be very careful. Make a difference between Russia and the smaller states around and between the Russian language and other similar to it. Unless you are well aware, do not try to make comments about the former Soviet republics and the story about the collapse of the USSR.
