Tourism is very popular now. We can know more about the world, we live in. Now people travel a lot in their country. Many of them travel abroad. Many tourists visit our country. And I am proud of my country. Tourists come to Russia to see its beauty. As a rule everybody wants to visit Moscow, St. Petersburg and the towns of the «Golden Ring».
I have decided to learn more about the streets and places of St. Petersburg. Many Russian poets and writers wrote about this wonderful city. I think my work will help me to become a cultural developed person. It is very important for the young people nowadays.
St Petersburg is situated on the eastern shore of the Gulf of Finland on the Baltic Sea. It lies on the Neva River, on 42 islands.
St Petersburg has the nickname the "City of 101 Islands".
Peter the Great founded the city as St. Petersburg in 1703. He had visited Western Europe and wanted to bring Western culture and technology to Russia. He made St. Petersburg his "window to the West".
During World War II, Leningrad was a main object of Germanys Army. The Germans laid siege to the city from September 1941 to January 1944. About a million citizens died during the 900-day siege. The city was badly damaged, but it did not fall. A lot of historic buildings were rebuilt after World War II.
The Museum in the Open Air, Peterhof is a town of fountains in the south of the Gulf of Finland. 142 fountains, the Great Palace, the Grand Cascade, and the statue of Samson are found there.
The State Hermitage in St Petersburg is one of the world's most famous art museums. It is the largest museum in Russia. World famous is the collection of West-European paintings. Works by Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael, Titian, El Greco, Rembrandt, Rubens we can see there.
The Mariinsky Theatre is a historic theatre of opera and ballet in Saint Petersburg. It is opened in 1860. Nowadays it is one of the most famous theatres in the world.
The flat on the Moika is the last place where the famous Russian poet Alexander Pushkin lived. It was the flat Pushkin left for his duel with Dantes. In the study of the flat Pushkin died on January 29 1837.
Many famous people live in St. Petersburg.
In order to prepare my report I had to read much information about St. Petersburg in English. I think it helped me improve my English. I had to learn many new words, look through the dictionary and use the Internet. Nowadays English is especially important to know. We learn it for future work, to travel abroad, to read books by foreign authors in the original.
St. Petersburg is the city I want to visit. In June my classmates and I are going to make an excursion to St. Petersburg. It is a tradition for graduators of our school to celebrate their graduation in the city. Its legendary White nights in June make staying in St. Petersburg unforgettable. If I know more about St. Petersburg it will be easier for me to accept the information the guides will give us.

Art has always been occupation for the few, but has been admired by many. I like painting, sculpture. I am fond of music and theatre. But today I want to tell you about one line of painting and its history. It’s Impressionism. I really like painting by artists-impressionists, so I will glad to share the most interesting information I knew.
Impressionism is a movement in French painting. It is about the nature of runaway light falling on surfaces. Impressionism is about the temporary, the here and now, and not about the timeless, the forever.
The name 'Impressionists' came from the title of a Claude Monet work, Impression, Sunrise, which provoked the critic Louis Leroy to coin the term in a satirical review published in the Parisian newspaper. However, the critics' nickname was not a compliment. Impressionism featured short, visible strokes - dots, commas, smears and blobs - that the arbiters of taste considered pathetically unsuitable. To say "Impressionist" in 1874 meant the painter had no skill and lacked the common sense to finish a painting before selling it. Leroy declared that Monet's painting was at most, a sketch, and could hardly be termed a finished work.
In 1874, a group of artists who dedicated themselves to this "messy" style pooled their resources to promote themselves in their own exhibition. The idea was radical. In those days the French art world turn around the annual Salon, an official exhibition sponsored by the French government. The group called themselves the Anonymous Society of Painters. For the ordinary art-audience, their art looked strange, the exhibition space looked irregular and the decision to show their art outside of the Salon seemed close to madness.
The best known artists in the group were Claude Monet, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Edgar Degas, Camille Pissarro, Alfred Sisley, Eugene Boudin, and Berthe Morisot. Impressionist motto: “Human eye is a marvellous instrument”.
What are the key characteristics of Impressionism?
Painters throughout history had rarely used these methods, but Impressionists were the first to use them all together, and with such consistency.
Still, we can say that Impressionism as a style continues in the work of some artists to this very day.
At the beginning of the 17th century European colonies began to appear on the territory of what is now the USA, at that time populated by different Indian tribes. The colonies mostly belonged to Britain, but there were Dutch, Spanish and Swedish colonies as well.
The main reason for emigration was the desire to have an own land, to be free from laws and rules of the Old World.
The sense of being independent became one of the fundamental streaks of future American Nation character.
The further history demonstrates how the character of American Nation was formed and developed in conditions of hardship and struggle for better life.
British government increased its pressure on the colonies and put all possible obstacles in the way of their independent industrial development and trade.
It resulted in the War of Independence in 1775. In 1776 the Second Continental Congress declared the united colonies to be independent of Great Britain.
There were many years of struggle for individual, independent way in all spheres of life.
But there are more or less typical streaks, norms of behavior peculiar to each nation. Among life values of the Americans dominate the following ones: freedom and stability, labor and high income. The “American dream” of the young American people consists of good education, reliable material provision, the possibility to live as you want, strong family, respect among friends and colleagues and professional competency.
Independence, individuality, self-confidence:
The Americans consider that every man can take care of himself best of all. They value their own personality. Individual rights and interests are at the first place. Thanks to egoism in the USA principals of equality and respect to other people had developed.
Equality and respect to other pople:
The Americans consider thatall people have equal possibilities in order to achieve success in life. It reflects in relationship between people: there is no differences between class belongings, age, job position, etc. On the other hand even kids know that it is forbidden to penetrate the territory which doesn`t belong to your property. All Americans follow the law of privacy.
Sincerity and frankness:
Most Americans prefer to deal with complex and sometimes sensitive issues and sort things out “with an open visor”. They do not follow the traditional European etiquette and not hush of what we do not have to say. This approach allows us to quickly reach agreement, by passing many of the psychological barriers. Americans solve problems in business, without pretense and grievances.
Americans love to dress casually. The same lack of officialdom and appears to communicate with people, even a large difference in age and position. And there`s nothing rude and disrespectful to the fact that students call their professors by name.
Spirit of cooperation:
Despite a love of personal freedom and desire to be better than others, Americans are accustomed work “teams”. Indeed, this is most rational way to achieve a common goal.
As we know, capitalism involves a struggle for survival. The American standard of living allows us to translate this struggle in a more civilized fashion, turning it into a competition. In particular, this property of the American character may manifest itself in the usual argument, exchanging barbs and jokes. American likes to be the last word was left to him.
“Success” in American society is often measured by the size of person`s income, number of transactions entered into by him and many of its own houses, cars and other valuables. But we should not all Americans to cut with the same brush. A wide range of quite affluent Americans who are playing more attention to spiritual cultural and simple human aspects of life, rather than build their wealth.
In America, everyone lives on a schedule and keep diaries. Late not accepted (time-money), pace of life for foreigners in USSA seems too hasty. But this is just one manifestation of American rationalism.
Not immediately possible to get used to the dynamic lifestyle that led the Americans. They`re not afraid of change.
Fear of silence:
Americans can not stand silence in the company. Therefore, you should know the language at least enough to keep the conversation about the weather or sports news.
In American culture the notion “friendship” is embedded at least deeper meaning than we have.
These parties are often informal and there are not many rules for them. Americans like to relax and enjoy themselves. So, maybe the best advice is to relax, smile, and enjoy yourself too!
Do not be afraid to ask questions. Americans are always ready to help if it is, of course, will not take them much time and effort.
Most Americans are terrible hygienists. They are closely monitoring the purity of his body and can not live without a hot shower, shampoo, deodorant and a fresh set of clothes for tomorrow. Naturally, they expect the same others. In their homes supported not just order, cleanliness and health, especially in the bathroom.
Americans love children, animals, gadgets, mother, work, excitement, noise, nature, television, shows, comedy, installment buying, fast motion sports, the flag, Christ, jazz, shapely women and muscular men, crowds, beefsteak, ice-cream, do-it-yourself.
My opinion: Americans are open-hearted and tough people.
It was very interesting for me to do this work because the USA is one of the leading countries in the world. It plays an important role in the global economy and policy. And I hope that I will visit this country in my future life.

Ireland, also known “Green Island”, - is one of the most beautiful countries in all over the world, capital of famous holiday “St Patrick`s Day”, country with great history. Last winter holidays I visited this “Green country”, saw great history buildings with my own eyes, met friendly Irish people, danced with them and sang. After my visiting that country I decided to share my impressions with others. So, from my report you will know some interesting information about Ireland.
Ireland, also known as the Republic of Ireland, is a sovereign state in Europe occupying about five-sixths of the island of Ireland. It is a unitary parliamentary republic with an elected president serving as head of state. The capital is Dublin in the east of the island. The state shares its only land border with Northern Ireland, a part of the United Kingdom. It is otherwise surrounded by the Atlantic Ocean, with the Celtic Sea to the south, Saint George's Channel to the south east, and the Irish Sea to the east.
Irish national dance is known in all over the world.
Irish dancing or Irish dance is a group of traditional dance forms originating in Ireland which can broadly be divided into social dance and performance dances. Irish dancing, popularized in 1994 by the world-famous show River dance, is notable for its rapid leg and foot movements, body and arms being kept largely stationary.
Most competitive dances are solo dances. The solo step dance is generally characterized by a controlled but not rigid upper body, straight arms, and quick, precise movements of the feet. The solo dances can either be in "soft shoe" or "hard shoe".
Irish cuisine was traditionally based on meat and dairy, supplemented with vegetables and seafood. The potato eventually formed the basis of many traditional Irish dishes after its introduction in the 16th century. Examples of popular Irish cuisine include boxty, colcannon, coddle, stew, and bacon and cabbage. Ireland is famous for the full Irish breakfast, which involves a fried or grilled meal generally consisting of bacon, egg, sausage, pudding, and fried tomato. Popular everyday beverages among the Irish include tea and coffee. Alcoholic drinks associated with Ireland is the world famous Guinness, which is a dry stout that originated in the brewery of Arthur Guinness at St. James's Gate in Dublin. Irish whiskey is also popular throughout the country, and comes in various forms, including single malt, single grain and blended whiskey.
Temple Bar is one of the main tourist attractions in Ireland and is the location of many notable cultural institutions. Besides Temple Bar Gallery and Studios these include the Irish Photography Centre, the Ark Children's Cultural Centre, the Irish Film Institute , the Temple Bar Music Centre.
There are a number of places to shop along for a variety of unique and Irish designed items and objects. A series of markets are held in the Temple Bar Area including the Food Market , the Design Mart and the Book Market .
Ireland has a lot of libraries collected a lot of interesting books from all over the world.
One of them is Chester Beatty library. The Chester Beatty Library was to house the collections of mining magnate, Sir Alfred Chester Beatty.
The Library's collections are displayed in two collections: "Sacred Traditions" and "Artistic Traditions". Both displays exhibit manuscripts, miniature paintings, prints, drawings, rare books and some decorative arts from the Islamic, East Asian and Western Collections. The Library is one of the premier sources for scholarship in both the Old and New Testaments and is home to one of the most significant collections of Islamic and Far Eastern artifacts. The museum also offers numerous temporary exhibitions, many of which include works of art on loan from foreign institutions and collections. The museum contains a number of priceless objects, including one of the surviving volumes.
One more famous library is National library of Ireland. The mission of the National Library of Ireland is 'To collect, preserve, promote and make accessible the documentary and intellectual record of the life of Ireland and to contribute to the provision of access to the larger universe of recorded knowledge'
The library is a reference library and, as such, does not lend. It has a large quantity of Irish and Irish-related material which can be consulted without charge this includes books,maps, manuscripts, music, newspapers, periodicals and photographs. Included in their collections is material issued by private as well as government publishers.
One more famous Dublin building is Trinity College. Trinity College, formally known as the College of the Holy and Undivided Trinity of Queen Elizabeth near Dublin, is the sole constituent college of the University of Dublin in Ireland. It is one of the seven ancient universities of Britain and Ireland, as well as Ireland's oldest university.
Trinity College is now surrounded by Dublin and is located on College Green, opposite the former Irish Houses of Parliament. The Library of Trinity College is a legal deposit library for Ireland and the United Kingdom, containing over 4.5 million printed volumes and significant quantities of manuscripts (including the Book of Kells), maps and music.
The Library proper is composed of several library buildings in college. The original (Old) Library is Thomas Burgh’s masterpiece. A huge building, it originally towered over the university and city after its completion.
There are a lot of interesting places for tourists in Dublin. Phoenix Park is not exclusion. It is one of the largest walled city parks in Europe. It includes large areas of grassland and tree-lined avenues, and since the seventeenth century has been home to a herd of wild Fallow deer.
There are some monuments in that Park.
The Wellington Monument is a 62 meters obelisk commemorating the victories of. It is the largest obelisk in Europe and would have been even higher if the publicly subscribed funding had not run out.
A second notable monument is the "Phoenix Column", a Corinthian column carved from Portland Stone located centrally on Chesterfield Avenue, the main thoroughfare of the Park, at the junction of Acres Road and The Phoenix.
And of course, we can’t imagine Ireland without Theatres.
The Abbey Theatre, also known as the National Theatre of Ireland, is one of the famous theatres. The Abbey was the first state-subsidized theatre in the English-speaking world. In its early years, the theatre was closely associated with the writers of the Irish Literary Revival, many of whom were involved in its founding and most of whom had plays staged there. It has become an important part of the Irish tourist industry.
Ireland is a great country with one of the most interesting culture and history. I am really happy that I have visited this unforgettable country and its capital, tasted Irish breakfast, danced famous Irish dance. I think everybody who likes travelling and who is interested in cultures of different countries should visit Ireland.
