Liverpool

Following the Fab Four

An MSC Northern Europe cruise to England is the perfect opportunity to discover the dynamic, exciting port of Liverpool: it’s a vibrant city with a Tate Gallery of its own, a series of innovative museums and a fascinating social history.
 
And of course it also makes great play of its musical heritage – as well it should, considering that this is the place that gave the world The Beatles. The main sights are scattered throughout the centre of town, but you can easily walk between most of them.

If you want a cathedral, they’ve “got one to spare” as the song goes; plus there’s a fine showing of British art in the celebrated Walker Art Gallery and Tate Liverpool, and a multitude of exhibits in the terrific World Museum Liverpool. When you step ashore from your MSC cruise, you can’t miss St George’s Hall, one of Britain’s finest Greek Revival buildings and a testament to the wealth generated from transatlantic trade.

Now primarily an exhibition venue, but once Liverpool’s premier concert hall and crown court, its vaulted Great Hall features a floor paved with thirty thousand precious Minton tiles (usually covered over), while the Willis organ is the third largest in Europe. Huge and flashy, in a show-stopping Danish-designed building, the Museum of Liverpool opened in 2011. Spread over three floors, the galleries play on Liverpool’s historic status as the “second city of Empire”, exploring the complex political and life histories that have unfolded in a community whose wealth and social fabric were built on international trade.

Dominating the waterfront are the so-called Three Graces – namely the Port of Liverpool Building (1907), Cunard Building (1913) and, most prominently, the 322ft-high Royal Liver Building (1910), topped by the “Liver Birds”, a couple of cormorants that have become the symbol of the city.

Ujedinjeno Kraljevstvo

"Bože čuvaj kraljicu"


Ujedinjeno Kraljevstvo ne čini samo jedna, već čak četiri zemlje - Engleska, Wales, Škotska i Sjeverna Irska. Također se sastoji i od mnoštva kulturnih identiteta: ne dao Bog, na primjer, da Škota ili Velšanina nazovete Englezom.

 
Tijekom vašeg krstarenja Ujedinjenim Kraljevstvom nikako nemojte propustiti jedinstveni doživljaj Londona jer ovaj glavni grad je na "must-see" popisu svih putnika. Brighton i Canterbury nude različite doživljaje - prvi je živopisno turističko mjesto na obali, a drugi jedan od najljepših britanskih srednjovjekovnih gradova. 
 
Na jugozapadu Engleske nalazi se ruralni krajolik Devona, stjenovita obala Cornwalla i povijesno lječilište Bath, a glavne znamenitosti središnje Engleske su sveučilišni gradovi Oxford i Cambridge.
 
Dalje na sjeveru su nekadašnji industrijski gradovi Manchester, Liverpool i Newcastle koji su danas živahna i obnovljena mjesta, kao i York koji je prepun veličanstvenih povijesnih blaga, ali ono što najviše privlači ljude u ovo područje je krajolik, posebice visoravni okruga Lake
 
Do najljepših škotskih jezera (loch), uskih dolina (glen) i vrhova, kao i do nevjerojatnih pejzaža otoka West Coast, lako se može doći iz Glasgowa i Edinburgha koji nudi možda najatraktivniji urbani krajolik Britanije. I na kraju, krstarenje Ujedinjenim Kraljevstvom neće biti potpuno ako se ne zaustavite u Sjevernoj Irskoj gdje se nalazi njezin glavni grad Belfast i spektakularni Prolaz divova (Giant's Causeway).
