Upon his many travels, Peter the Great visited Versailles and fell in love with it. When he returned, he built his palace adopting the aesthetics and architecture of many of the palaces he visited on his travels, Versaille being one of the main influences. Today, Peterhof (Peter's palace) is considered to be the Russian Versailles and it would be wrong to think this palace is any less impressive. (1/3)

About Peter the Great: Peter the Great was known for transforming Russia through modernization. Early in his mandate he traveled to the West (to what he believed were more modern societies) looking for science, engineering, arts and culture. Upon his return, he founded St. Petersburg, and instilled in the city all of his western learnings, later instilling the same throughout his empire. During his mandate he strengthen Russia's army (following Western standards), secularized schools, administered greater control over the Orthodox Church, modernized the Russian alphabet, introduced the Julian calendar, established the first Russian newspaper - and many other things. He said to have been a man with great curiosity, and is remembered as a warrior, traveler and consumer of knowledge. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Found my way to the London Temple of Mithras! Thanks for the recommendation @kay.sunahara it was amazing! The Roman temple itself was constructed nearly 2000 years ago when Romans first founded Londinium. The secretive temple was built for the cult of Mithras a mysterious Roman God who was born from a rock and is pictured slaughtering a Bull. The site has some amazing artifacts (and mounts!) and a pretty good spooky presentation in the dark with smoke and disembodied Roman voices! #museum #mithras #londonmithraeum #londonmithras #museums #museumworker #preparators #mountmaking #london #londonuk #londonmmuseums #romans #londinium #romantemple #cult #mountmaker #preparators #travel #uk #insta #instagood

Designed by the architect Yann Weymouth of HOK in 2011 , the Dalí Museum architecture represents Dali’s works , depicting the contrast between the rational and the intuitive and surprising world , combining elements of nature and math. It’s a concrete box with 18” thick walls that protect  the collection from Cat 5 hurricanes combined with a glass geodesic bubble made of 1062 pieces of glass. This iconic building is located at the St Petersburg Waterfront and it’s definitely worth the visit !

É uma caixa de concreto com paredes grossas de 45,7 cm de espessura que protegem a coleção de furacões Cat 5 combinados com uma bolha de vidro geodésica feita de 1062 pedaços de vidro. Este edifício icônico está localizado no St Petersburg Waterfront e definitivamente vale a pena a visita!
