The Lion Monument in Lucerne is a giant dying lion carved out of a wall of sandstone rock above a pond at the east end of the medieval town. It was designed as a memorial for the mercenary soldiers from central Switzerland who lost their lives while serving the French king Louis XVI during the French Revolution.

When the revolutionary masses attacked the royal Tuileries castle in Paris on August 10, 1792 the Swiss mercenary troops tried to defend the royal family and make sure the royals could escape.

The latin inscription HELVETIORUM FIDEI AC VIRTUTI means "To the loyalty and bravery of the Swiss"

However, what many people do not know is that the lion is placed within a small alcove which has the shape of a pig. This was done by the sculptor due to not being paid for his work. The creator of this incredible piece had a deep respect for the soldiers who died thus he did not want to damage the monument itself but still want to leave a message for the unfairness of his situation. .

The Piazza San Marco
Or St. Marks Square

Piazza San Marco is the main square in Venice. It’s the social, public and religious centre of the city, and an absolutely stunning space.
It is the biggest public square in Venice and one of the most beautiful in the world. Allegedly, because it is so striking, Napoleon once referred to it as the ‘Drawing Room of Europe’. The Square is covered by arcades on three sides and St Marks church on the eastern side. The Campanile, a watch tower with a height of 314 feet was built in the ninth century, which Galileo used for his work. This watch tower collapsed and was rebuilt in 1902.

During the daytime, its filled with lots of visitors and continuous music playing around the area. One can spend a complete day with complete satisfaction. St Mark’s Square is full of life and history and it should not be missed.

Located just east of the Roman Forum, the massive stone amphitheater known asb The Roman Colosseum, a.k.a. “Amphitheatrum Flavium” (Flavian Amphitheatre), is one of the major tourist attractions in Rome and is  the world’s largest amphiteater ever built. 
The Colosseum was used mainly for gladiatorial contests, animal hunts, executions,re-enactments of famous battles and other kinds of spectacles.
The Colosseum could hold up to 75.000 spectators. Each sector was reserved to a specific class of citizens, based on their importance. 
Though two-thirds of the original Colosseum has been destroyed over time, the amphitheater remains a popular tourist destination, as well as an iconic symbol of Rome and its long, tumultuous history. .

Pigeon Valley, Cappadocia -

Pigeon valley is situated between Göreme and Uçhisar and is ideal for walking, as the trek is relatively easy. The name comes from the thousands of pigeon houses that have been carved into the soft tuff since ancient times. Although they can be found throughout Cappadocia, they are especially numerous in this valley. They were carved wherever space allowed, including abandoned cave houses and churches. In Cappadocia, pigeons have long been a source of food and fertilizer. The advent of chemical fertilizers has reduced the use of pigeon dung. However, some farmers still maintain their lofts because they insist that the reputation of Cappadocian fruits as the sweetest and most succulent in Turkey is entirely due to pigeon dung. .

Although the seat of Netherlands government is in The Hague, Amsterdam is the nominal capital. It is also the country's largest city, with a population of more than 851,000, and the most visited, with over 3,5 million foreign visitors a year.
.
It is probably the most planned city of northern Europe, and has long been a well-known city. .
165 : That’s the number of canals in Amsterdam. In total these waterways add up to more than 100 kilometers or about 60 miles. The Seventeenth-century canal ring area of Amsterdam inside the Singelgracht became part of the UNESCO World Heritage list in 2010. .
Amsterdam has a history of non-conformism, tolerance and progressivism, all of which come together in its liberal policies concerning cannabis and teleiophilic prostitution. Other attractions include the Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh Museum, the Anne Frank House, the Flower Market, Albert Cuyp Market, and the Vondelpark..

Ao Nang is Krabi's vibrant tourist centre. It has the relaxed atmosphere of a small town, the beauty of a beach resort, the modern comforts of home, and the friendliness that sets Thailand apart. The town itself is small; a 30-minute stroll takes you from one end to the other. Given that floating buildings are impractical and sheer cliffs don't readily lend themselves to development, this paradise won't be paved over anytime soon. By road, Ao Nang is 20 minutes from Krabi Town and Klong Muang Beach and a minute or two to Noppharat Thara Beach. Via the sea, Railay's beaches - including Ton Sai - and a grab bag of small, intimate islands are nearby. Pick a direction and give your waterborne taxi 30 minutes. A watery world of adventure waits. . .

The city of Innsbruck’s landmark, the Golden Roof, is located directly in the historical center of town.

German Emperor Maximilian I commissioned the Golden Roof in 1500. At the time, Innsbruck was the epicenter of Europe. This late-Gothic oriel, covered with 2,657 fire-gilded copper tiles, served to represent the emperor – a symbol of his power. Today you’ll find the Golden Roof Museum in the palace, which once served as the residence of the Tyrolean sovereigns. The museum’s exhibitions and tours chronicle the magnificent life of Emperor Maximilian I.
