Akaba/Petra

Putevima Lawrenca od Arabije

Kada s vašeg MSC broda siđete u Akabu, možete uživati u idiličnom, sunčanom okruženju na obalama Crvenog mora na krajnjem jugu zemlje.

 

Akaba se od pomalo zapuštenog mrtvog rukavca u posljednjem desetljeću ili malo dužem razdoblju pretvorila u ugodnu, mirnu destinaciju koja još uvijek nije dosegnula svoj vrhunac. Hoteli svih kategorija neprestano niču po gradu koji bilježi i luksuznu izgradnju uzduž obale. Grad privlači i ulagače koji poboljšavaju njegovu infrastrukturu i sadržaje koje nudi. Neka od najboljih mjesta na svijetu za ronjenje nalaze se na nedirnutim koraljnim grebenima koji miluju obalu smještenu južno od grada - što pruža privlačan kontrast od Petre i Wadi Ruma, nedalekih pustinjskih znamenitosti.

 

Gradsko središte je gusta mreža ulica i uličica koje se prostiru iza ceste uz plažu (koja se naziva "Corniche"). Kratak izlet tijekom vašeg MSC Grand Voyages krstarenja može biti prilika da otkrijete Petru. Skrivena u udaljenom nizinskom bazenu u središtu jordanske planine Shara i skrivena od vanjskog svijeta nepremostivom kamenom barijerom, Petra je i dalje ovjenčana misterijom.

 

Otkako je jedan zapadnjački pustolov naletio na ovo mjesto 1812. godine, ono potiče maštu, a njezina veličina i dramatični krajolik stavili su ju - poput piramida i Taj Mahala - u kraljevstvo legendi. Danas se čini kao da je vrijeme spustilo veo na ovaj nekada veličanstveni grad, koji je bio dovoljno bogat na putevima trgovine karavana da je mogao izazvati moć Rima: dva tisućljeća vjetra i kiše ublažili su oštre rubove njegovih ukrašenih klasičnih fasada i izbrisali su njegove meke pješčenjake, kako bi svijetu izložili žive nizove boja koje su ležale ispod i na taj način je cijeli krajolik došao u središte pozornosti.

    AQA04

    Located some way to the north of Aqaba in the middle of the Jordanian desert lies one of the most spectacular sights this world has to offer, the ancient city of Petra. Considered to be "one of the most precious ... properties of man's cultural heritage” by the UNESCO council and declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1985, the city is famed particularly for the rose-red hue of the rock out of which it was hewn by ancient Nabatean Arabs c. 312 B.C.. After leaving your ship and boarding an air-conditioned coach, the first leg of tour will take you on a roughly 2-hour drive through the scenic Jordanian landscape to reach the ancient city. A walk through the narrow "Siq”, a shadowy ravine that carves its way through sheer walls of rock, then follows to reach Petra itself. Prepare for the big reveal as you come out of the ravine, when the sudden sunshine will illuminate the palatial pink city rising majestically out of the rock face. Incredibly, the sizeable ancient city, which once served as the capital of the Nabatean Arabs and even boasted a conduit system that gave the town potable water, lay hidden from the world for more than a 1,000 years until it was finally rediscovered by a Swiss explorer in 1812. Your guided tour of the extremely well-preserved site will also include visits to the Nabatean Theatre, temples, the royal tombs and time to enjoy your packed lunch. Please note: as the guided part of tour involves approx. 5/6 km of walking on uneven ground, it is not suitable for guests with walking difficulties. The availability of guides in languages other than English is limited. Should a tour guide be unavailable for your language, the tour will be provided in English only. You are recommended to wear comfortable, closed walking shoes and a light jacket.

    If it's rose-red in colour, situated in the middle of the Jordanian desert and reputed to be half as old as time itself, the destination of this all-day excursion can only be the amazing ancient city of Petra. Having been hidden for centuries, this jewel of early engineering was rediscovered by the Swiss explorer, Johann Ludwig Burckhardt, in 1812 and then unveiled to the rest of the world. Situated about a 2-hour coach ride to the north of Aqaba, the city was hewn out of the solid rock by Nabatean Arabs more than 2,000 years ago and served as their capital city. These clever Arab architects even succeeded in bringing fresh water to their town using a sophisticated water conduit system, which turned the city into an artificial oasis. Your exploration of this UNESCO World Heritage Site begins with a walk through the narrow "Siq”, a stunning natural canyon that winds its way through towering rocks. As you emerge from the canyon, the bright daylight will reveal the Treasure (Al-Khazneh) in all its rose-hued glory. Carved into the cliff and rising several storeys high, the surprisingly well-preserved colonnaded structures have more than stood the test of time. The guided tour of the site will also include the Nabatean Theatre, temples and the royal tombs. To cap off your incredible sightseeing tour of this ancient city, a delicious lunch is included in the excursion. The scenic return journey in the comfort of your air-conditioned coach will bring this fabulous outing to a leisurely close. Please note: as the guided part of tour involves approx. 5/6 km of walking on uneven ground, it is not suitable for guests with walking difficulties. The availability of guides in languages other than English is limited. Should a tour guide be unavailable for your language, the tour will be provided in English only. You are recommended to wear comfortable, closed walking shoes and a light jacket. This tour is available only following MSC Lirica call: 09.04.2014.

Jordan

Tisućljetna kultura
Tisućljetna kultura

Godišnji odmor u Jordanu znači "boravak u pustinji", no imat ćete priliku vidjeti mnoštvo različitih scena krajolika - od dramatičnog crvenog pijeska i brežuljaka na krajnjem jugu na koja se trebate popeti pa sve do ogromnih kamenih ravnica od vulkanskog bazalta na istoku.


ŽSjeverni brežuljci, bogati stablima maslina, nesigurno se njišu iznad rascjepa Jordanske doline koja se spušta prema Mrtvom moru, najnižoj točki na zemlji. Središnji dio zemlje prekriven je mirnim žitnim poljima koja presijecaju velike kanjone i graniče sa sušnim, stjenovitim planinama.

 

Na najjužnijem dijelu Jordana nalaze se plaže, u čijim toplim vodama Crvenog mora se nalaze neki od najspektakularnijih koraljnih grebena na svijetu. Jordan je dio kopnenog mosta koji povezuje Europu, Afriku i Aziju te su kroz njega prošle nebrojene vojske. Grci, Rimljani, kršćanski križari i mnogi drugi ostavili su dokaze svojih osvajanja, pa tako postoje doslovce tisuće arheoloških nalazišta iz svih razdoblja u svakom kutu zemlje, čekaju da ih otkrijete na vašem MSC krstarenju do Jordana. S druge strane, zemlja je daleko od toga da ostane zarobljena u prošlosti. Aman je u potpunosti moderan arapski grad s važnim gospodarstvom i socijalnom dinamikom.
