Bridgetown

Glavni grad Barbadosa

Kada dođete na Barbados s vašim MSC brodom, trebali biste započeti svoje istraživanje u glavnom gradu Bridgetownu.


Među mnogim znamenitostima ovog malog karipskog grada, zaustavite se da biste se divili njegovim brojnim kolonijalnim zgradama, zgradi parlamenta i kipu Lorda Nelsona koji se nalaze na trgu koji se danas zove Trg narodnih heroja (National Heroes Square). 


Sadašnja Župna crkva Sv. Ivana peta je rekonstrukcija najstarije lokalne crkve. Potječe iz 1836. godine. U njezinoj unutrašnjosti nalazi se kip britanskog umjetnika Richarda Westmacotta iz 18. stoljeća, dok se u dvorištu crkve nalazi grob posljednjeg bizantskog cara Ferdinanda Paleologusa, direktnog potomka Konstantina XI.. Najintrigantnija četvrt koju trebate posjetiti je St. Andrew. Ovdje ćete pronaći Chalky Mount Potterier, obrt za lončariju i mlin za šećernu trsku Morgan Lewis koji može biti odlična pozadina za fotografiju. 


O povijesti zemlje možete više saznati u muzeju Barbados Museum and Historical Society, smještenom u četvrti St. Michael. Krenite na izlet na istočnu stranu otoka kako biste posjetili Botanički vrt Andromeda, smješten u blizini župe St. Joseph. Napravljen prije šezdeset godina kao privatni vrt, danas je otvoren za javnost u svojoj punoj veličini i sjaju. Špilja Harrisson's Cave, u području St. Thomas, još je jedan trijumf prirode sa svojim stalaktitima, stalagmitima, potocima, jezerima i vodopadima. U jednoj od pećina, igra svjetla na stijenama toliko je intenziva da je zaslužila nadimak "kristalna soba". 


Alternativni izlet povijesne prirode odvest će vas do Holetowna: neizbježne stanice za one koji žele naučiti nešto o otočkim tradicijama. To je prvo englesko naselje. Toj je činjenici počast odana spomenikom Holetown Monument, podignutom u znak sjećanja na prvo iskrcavanje Engleza na otok. Ovdje se može pronaći i Crkva St. James koja datira iz 17. stoljeća.


Ako vas više privlači odlazak na plažu, Accra Beach je najpoznatija i sadrži sva karipska obilježja: prozirno more, bijeli pijesak i morski život koji može poslužiti kao reklama za ronjenje s maskom.

    Harrison's Cave is a magnificent natural phenomenon, quite in a class of its own. Formed from a particularly beautiful type of crystallized limestone, this stunning cavern is undoubtedly one of the most spectacular natural attractions in the entire Caribbean. Though created over the course of hundreds of thousands of years, Harrison's Cave has only been accessible to the general public for some 15 years. The first recorded history of Harrison's Cave dates back to 1796, but it then lay undisturbed until it was rediscovered in 1970 by Ole Sorenson and developed by the Government of Barbados. After checking in at the Visitors Center, you will be taken into a theatre where you will watch a short film on the formation of Barbados. Then you will board the electric tram that will take you down into the cave. As the driver pulls away, your guide will commence her commentary and you are on your way to a memorable experience - magnificent chambers, incredible stalactites and stalagmites, bubbling streams, tumbling cascades, plunging waterfalls and emerald pools. Throughout the almost mile long cave the flowstone covered walls glisten in the lights as the calcite laden waters drip down from the roof. At various points the tram stops to allow passengers to disembark and have a closer look at the beauty at hand. Just remember how long it has taken for these precious features to for and please do not touch them! One stop takes place at the lowest point in the cave, where a waterfall plunges into an emerald pool. Flash photography is permitted - not video - so take your camera.

Barbados

Hrana, vino i rum na rubu Atlantika
Hrana, vino i rum na rubu Atlantika

Tijekom krstarenja po Karibima s MSC-om, iskrcat ćete se u Bridgetownu na Barbadosu.


Više od tri stoljeća Barbados je bio britanska kolonija i nije iznenađujuće da je britanski stil i dalje prisutan: imena mjesta, kriket, utrke konja i polo, anglikanske crkve pa čak i brdovito područje poznato kao Škotska. No taj je britanski stil ponekad i pretjeran jer ovo je prije svega zemlja Zapadnoindijskih otoka, prekrivena mrežom polja šećerne trske i prošarana malim trgovinama koje prodaju rum. Calypso je njihov odabir glazbe, leteća riba im je najdraža hrana, a utjecaji koji se ovdje isprepliću vjerojatno u jednakoj mjeri dolaze i iz Amerike i iz Europe.

 

Stanovnici Barbadosa, poznati kao Bajans, su topli i gostoljubivi kao i drugdje. Među tradicionalnijim znamenitostima na Barbadosu su otočke kuće na plantažama, slikoviti botanički vrtovi, ponosne vojne tvrđave i signalne stanice. Glavni grad Bridgetown je živopisno mjesto s s predivnim nacionalnim muzejom te odličnim barovima i klubovima.

 

A tu su i plaže - od često pretrpanih plaža poput Accra Beach i Mullins Bay do malih, ali predivnih pješčanih oaza s palmama poput Bottom Baya na jugoistoku zemlje.
