While it is certainly rewarding to explore spellbinding locales and landmarks in person, it may not always be possible to do so. Even through it may be through a screen, here are some tourist attractions all over the world such as Buckingham Palace, Van Gogh Museum and the Waitomo Glowworm Caves which have chosen to cater to their visitors through a virtual portal to facilitate wider access. Moreover, you can also treat yourself to the splendid sights of cities like Venice and Jerusalem from the comfort of your home.


British Museum

Het Britse Museum is een van Londen's top toeristische attracties, evenals een grote wetenschappelijke bron. Zijn collectie werd nagelaten aan de natie in 1753 en het Museums onderscheidende Griekse revivalist structuur werd gebouwd in de 19e eeuw. De collectie is massaal uitgebreid tijdens de hoogtijdagen van het Britse Rijk, die leidt tot reputatie van het Museum dat over de hele wereld ze bronnen plunderden en zorgde ervoor dat het meer dan 6,5 miljoen voorwerpen heeft. De tentoonstellingen hebben een grote van ongeveer 14 hectare en het is gewoon te vermoeiend om ze allemaal in een bezoek te bezoeken. De beste manier is om een collectie of tentoonstelling te kiezen die u interesseert, verken deze, en keer regelmatig terug. En wanneer u geen tijd heeft voor een goed bezoek, kom dan langs voor een koffie in het prachtige Hof Restaurant . Entree is gratis, maar kosten kunnen worden gemaakt voor tijdelijke tentoonstellingen.

Buckingham Palace

The grand and stately Buckingham Palace has been the official London residence of the British monarch since 1837. Although the origins of the palace go back to the 18th Century when the Duke of Buckingham built his townhouse at the site, the palace as it stands today is principally the work of architects John Nash and Edward Blore. The palace holds 775 rooms, lavishly decorated with Sevres Porcelain and fine art by the likes of Rembrandt, Vermeer and Van Dyck. From the cream and gold palette of the Belle Epoque to the intricacies of the Chinese Regency, each room is a showcase of extravagant yet tasteful interior design. The Grand Staircase is perhaps one of the world's finest examples of bronze casting, illuminated by an etched glass dome and the focal point of the palace, while the forecourt is the setting for one of London's most popular tourist events - the Changing of the Guard. The Royal Mews and the Queen's Gallery are other popular features of this royal residence that are also open to visitors. All of this is surrounded by manicured lawns and lush gardens alive with myriad blooms in summer, painting a picture of grandeur befitting Britain's royal family.

Eiffel Tower

Underneath the glaze of the Parisian sky, the Eiffel Tower captures the dazzling spirit of its French capital. A magnificent wrought iron lattice tower that was originally built as an entrance to the 1889 World's Fair, the tower was designed by Gustave Eiffel after his inspiration was fueled by the pyramidal form of Egypt's historic landmarks. This comparison was met with ardent disapproval from several eminent Frenchmen before the tower came to be the celebrated global icon that it is known as today. At a stunning height of 324 meters (1,063 feet), the Eiffel Tower dominates the skyline as the city's tallest, and the country's second-tallest freestanding structure. Its majestic form sports three shades – darkest at the lowest level and colored in a light contrast as the tower ambles up to the top – an illusory mechanism adopted so as to complement its surroundings. The Eiffel Tower is one of the most winning sights in all of France, and even after more than a century, people continue to extol this monumental symbol of architectural beauty.

Château de Versailles

Vermoeid van Parijs, droeg de Koning van de Zon (Louis XIV, die zichzelf graag vergeleek met Apollo, de god van de kunsten, vrede en zon) in 1668 de architecten Louis le Vau en Jules Hardouin op om het kasteel van Versailles te bouwen, op de plaats van zijn vaders jachthut. Het werd het grootste paleis in Europa, dat tot 20.000 hovelingen kan herbergen. Charles Le Brun, de schilder, ontwierp het interieur, met als hoogtepunten de Koninklijke Appartementen en de Spiegelhal. De Grand Trianon (1687) en de Petit Trianon (1762) zijn ook in het park. De eerste, gebouwd van steen marmer, huisvestte Louis XIV' s maîtresse, terwijl de laatstgenoemde, een klein herenhuis, het huis werd van Louis XV maîtresse.

Bezoekers kunnen het observatie platform oplopen om New York stad en zijn haven te bekijken. Met een fakkel en een boek in haar handen heeft Vrouwe Vrijheid immigranten en bezoekers al meer dan een eeuw hartelijk welkom geheten.

The White House

The monumental cornerstone of the United States presidency, the White House is the formal abode and headquarters of the President of the United States. Located at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, this gleaming neoclassical structure was originally referred to as the Presidential Mansion, before Theodore Roosevelt lovingly bestowed upon it the moniker of 'White House' - a name that would go on to signify not only the physical structure, but the entire collective unit that comprised of the President and his advisers. While John Adams was the first incumbent of this official home, several leaders that followed added their own elements to its interiors, the most noteworthy being the comprehensive redecoration carried out by former First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy, wife of erstwhile President John F. Kennedy. Today, the central building of the White House comprises of the Executive Residence, while the rest of this colossal structure consists of a total of 132 rooms, a tennis court, a putting green, 35 bathrooms, a cinema and a bowling alley named after Harry S. Truman.

Colosseum

The magnanimous proportions of the Colosseum have long been a source of wonder. Originally envisioned in 70 CE, the construction of this grand structure was completed in 80 CE. At that time, it is believed that this vast amphitheater could seat upwards of 50,000 spectators at once. The Colosseum also features on the Italian version of the five-cent Euro. Deemed as one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Colosseum was designed to be a horse racing circuit and arena for animal fighting and gladiatorial battles, although it has also hosted significant religious ceremonies in its early days. It is a symmetrical wonder set in the historic landscape of Rome's heart. The enormous ruin is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is considered by many to be an iconic symbol of Italy.

Paris Catacombs

Hidden beneath "The City of Light" is a dark underworld, the final resting place of more than six million Parisians. The Catacombs of Paris are underground ossuaries formed of a network of tunnels, caves, and quarries filled with mortal remains, where the former citizens of Paris now form a part of its foundation. As Paris went on its way to becoming an important hub, thousands flocked to the city. This spurred justified concerns about the limited cemetery space, leading to the creation of the catacombs in 1810 at the site of the old Montrouge stone quarries. Although in use as an ossuary as early as the 1780s, it was not until this time that the catacombs were organized. The bones were arranged as per the cemeteries they were taken from, creating a subterranean skeletal world, where the last of the lot were brought down in 1860. During World War II, this network of galleries was used as a hideaway for the Résistance movement; its vastness and the discretion of its entrances were great assets indeed. These ossuaries, illustrated by texts, create a chilling atmosphere and describe some of the defining events in the history of Paris, giving visitors substance for meditation. It is also occasionally used as a macabre venue for concerts, parties and other events.

Monterey Bay Aquarium

Monterey Bay Aquarium is one of the best-designed aquariums in the country. A rather stand-out feature of this aquarium is the two-story tank, home to a kelp forest in which one can find sunfish, sharks, and the occasional diver tasked with squeegeeing the algae off the tank walls. Sand dabs are displayed in shelf-like tanks ideally suited to the flat fish, and a school of sardines swim in an endless circle in their cylindrical tank home. If you want to interact with some aquatic dwellers, you're invited to pet the bat rays. The jellyfish display is one of Monterey Bay Aquarium's star attractions.
