British wonderland- 8 places to visit in London

British wonderland- 8 places to visit in London

EN: London is a must-go. The architecture, the streets , the people, the history, even the weather outline the ‘british wonderland’. I have always dreamt about visiting London because as a kid I used to watch the Peter Pan cartoons where they are flying and they take a break on the Big Ben. From the tiniest cafeteria in London to the change of the guards at the Buckingham Place, all is just fascinating. So here are 8 places you must visit in London:

RO: Londra este un must-go. Arhitectura, strazile,persoanele,istoria ,pana si vremea contureaza ‘The british wonderland’. Visul meu intotdeauna a fost  sa vizitez Londra intrucat in copilarie obisnuiam sa urmaresc filmele cu Peter Pan cand acesta zbura si a luat o pauza pe ‘limbile’ Big Ben-ului.De la cea mai mica cafenea pana la schimbarea garzilor la Palatul Buckingham, totul e fascinant. Aici sunt 8 locuri de vizitat in Londra:

1.The Big Ben& The London Eye

EN: The big ben & The London Eye are like the logo of London. But,believe me or not, they are even more beautiful in reality.

The Big Ben is like magic: makes you think about the old London we all watch in movies. You can close your eyes hearing the clock chiming 1 o’clock and feel like you’re in the 20s and you can almost hear the carts and the music from that era, but then you open your eyes and see another beauty : The London Eye.

You go up up up up up… And here you are,on the top of the world,ok maybe not the world ,just London. You can feel your heart beating a little bit faster as you watch all around you… And you are the eye of London,you see the tiny buildings and the tiniest humans on earth walking on the streets of London and being happy. Althought you can’t see their smile,but you supposed that the happiness that is in your soul in the moment you’re up here in the clouds ,is down there on the streets too. Now you’re going down ,the buildings are bigger and you can see the smile on the people’s faces. You’re back, on the british ground of London.

RO: Big Ben& Ochiul Londrei sunt simbolurile acestui oras. Dar crede-ma sau nu,acestea sunt chiar mai frumoase in realitate.

Big Ben este magic : iti duce gandul la Londra ‘veche’ pe care toti o urmarim in filme. Iti inchizi ochii,ascultand clopotele ceasului ce bat ora 1 fix si poti simti ca esti in anii ’20 si aroape poti auzi sunetul de copite ale cailor inhamati ce strabat strazile cu piatra cubica ale Londrei. Si muzica ,muzica aceelor vremuri….Dar apoi iti deschizi ochii si vezi alta frumusete: Ochiul Londrei.

Urci si urci si urci…Si aici esti , in varful lumii, poate nu chiar al lumii,cel putin al Londrei. Iti poti simti inima batand putin mai repede, privind tot ce e in jurul tau.. Iar acum tu insati esti ochiul Londrei,veghind asupra micilor cladiri si asupra celor mai mici oameni de pe pamant,cum se plimba ,cum sunt fericiti. Insa tu nu le poti vedea zambetul,dar presupui ca fericirea din sufletul tau in momentul in care tu esti aici sus intre nori, este si acolo jos pe strazile Londrei. Acum cobori,cladirile sunt mai mari ,iar acum poti vedea zambetul de pe fata fiecarui om. Esti inapoi pe pamantul englezesc al Londrei.

2.Madame Tussauds

EN: Madam Tussauds is all about fun and I promise you’ll love it. The wax ‘celebrities’ are kind of weird ,but you’ll get used to it when you’ll post a photo with you and Justin Bieber and nobody will realize the weirdness of the wax ‘bag’ standing next to you. Althought everybody will be like ‘omgggg that’s you and Justin bibeeer???’ and in the end of the day it’s worth it.

RO: Madam Tussauds este distractiv si promit ca vei iubi asta. ‘Vedetele’ din ceara sunt intr-un fel stranii ,dar te vei obisnui cu asta cand vei posta o poza cu tine si Justin Bieber si nimeni nu va observa ciudatenia mormanului de ceara de langa tine. Pe deasupra, toata lumea va spune ‘ omgggg aici esti tu cu justin Bieber???’ ,iar la sfarsitul zilei vei realiza ca a meritat.

3.Winter Wonderland

EN: It’s open just at Christmas time,but the name ‘Winter Wonderland’ is very suggestive. That’s the wonderland of food,fun and my favourite : mulled wine. The best mulled wine I have ever drinked.First, the food is awesome: pancakes,  sausages, baked potatoes,burgers, basically all the british food you are dreaming of. After eating, I beat you want to have fun, so you should try the rollercoaster. Then I suggest you to grab a cup of mulled wine and to listen to the Christmas songs that are played live at Winter Wonderland every year.

RO:Este deschis doar pe timp de iarna, insa numele de ‘Winter Wonderland’ nu este pus intamplator. Acesta este ‘taramul minunilor’ plin de mancare ,distractei si cel mai bun vin fiert gustat vreodata.In primul rand, mancarea este nemaipomenita: clatite, carnati , cartofi la cuptor ,burger, in esenta toate specialitatiile Marii Britanii la care ai visat. Dupa ce ai mancat,pot sa pariez ca vrei sa te distrezi, deci ar trebui sa incerci roller-coaster-ul. Dupa,iti sugerez sa-ti cumperi o cana cu vin fiert si sa asculti colindele cantate in direct la Winter Wonderland in fiecare an.

4.The British Museum

EN: The british museum is for sure the best museum I had ever visited. Located in Bloomsbury area of London, with almost 8 million works, The British Museum is among the largest museum on earth. It’s like a time machine. You can see the history of our existence from the early begging to present. What I likes the most: the mummies and a prehistoric chess game. The British Museum is beyond words : a place where everyone can take a break from our noisy world and get back in the time when everything was simple and the people were guided by nature.  And it’s absolutely fascinating.  Our evolution is there, in British Museum, ready for you to come and observe the origins & the struggle to exist of our grand-grand-grand-….parents

RO: The British Museum este cu singuranta cel mai bun muzeu pe care l-am vizitat vreodata. Situat in cartierul londonez Bloomsbury,cu aproximatix 8 milioane de exponate, The British Museum este printre cele mai mari muzee din lume. Este ca o masina a timpului. Poti vedea istoria existentei noastre de la primele inceputuri pana in present.Ce mi-a placut cel mai mult: mumiile si o tabla de sah preistorica. The British Museum este dincolo de cuvinte: un loc unde oricine poate lua o pauza de la lumea noastra galagioasa ,intorcandu-se in timp, cand totul era simplu si oamenii erau ghidati de natura. Si este absolut fascinant. Evolutia noastra este acolo, in British Museum, gata ca tu sa vii sa studiezi originile & lupta stramosilor nostrii pentru existenta.

5.The streets

EN: London is beautiful. From the Big Ben to Trafalgar Square to Buckingham Palace. Everything is beautiful. So just walk , everywhere. I promise you that you will see something spectacular at every corner. Trust me. (and don’t forget to walk on Oxford Street)

RO: Londra este frumoasa. De la Big Ben pana la Trafalgar Square la Buckingham Palace. Totul este frumos . Deci plimba-te,oriunde. Iti promit ca vei vedea cate ceva spectaculos la fiecare colt. Ai incredere. (si nu uita sa mergi pe Oxford Street).

6.Buckingham Palace

EN: One word to describe it: stunning. The architecture is unique. The guards are wordless but funny. Everything just fits perfect in the royal landscape of Queen’s Palace. The guard’s changing is spectacular and worth to watch.

What I liked the most? Looking in a guard’s eyes and laughing without any reason.

RO: Un singur cuvant pentru a-l descrie: uluitor.Arhitectura este unica in lume. Garzile sunt mute,dar amuzante. Totul se incadreaza perfect in peisajul regal al Platului Reginei. Schimbarea garzilor este spectaculoasa si merita urmarita.

Ce mi-a placut cel mai mult? Sa ma uit ochii unei garzi si sa rad fara niciun motiv.

7.Victoria& Albert Art Museum

EN: The Victoria and Albert Museum is the world’s largest museum of art. It’s marvelous. With 4,5 million artwork objects , the V&A Museum is literally the definition of art.

RO: Muzeul Victoria&Albert este cel mai mare muzeu de arta din lume. Este minunat. Cu 4.5 milioane lucrari de arta , Muzeul V&A este la propriu definitia artei.

8. The Queen’s Tea Shop

EN: Fortunum&Mason is literally the queen’s tea shop. Full of history, royality and good taste ,that is the place with the best tea in London.

RO : Fortunum&Mason este magazinul de ceai al reginei. Plin de istorie,regalitate si bun gust, acesta este locul unde poti gasi cel mai bun ceai din Londra.

9.PizzaExpress and Burger&Lobster

EN: Because a trip is nothing without the best food in town-here are 2 restaurants that I absolutely loved:

RO: Pentru ca o vacanta nu este nimic fara cea mai buna mancare din oras- aici sunt 2 restaurante pe care absolut le ador :

Burger&Lobster:

PizzaExpress:

I hope you will enjoy this post and I hope you’ll have a good time in London 🙂

Have fun,

Ramona
