London in 2 days
The largest city in the European Union, London is considered a real Mecca for travelers. Seeing Big Ben, the Tower and red telephone booths, ride the famous double-decker buses, taste milk tea during five-o-clock and watch the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace - the minimum program for those who decided to take a chance and see London for 2 days. However, if you wish, you can have time and much more..
You can start by visiting the highest point in the British capital, Ludgate Hill. Here is the world famous cathedral, erected at the end of the 17th century in honor of St. Paul. Its dome hovers over London, and 17 bells, like centuries ago, beat off time. The remains of many famous people lie in St. Paul's Cathedral, including Admiral Nelson.

It is worth including an excursion to Trafalgar Square in the route of walking around London in 2 days. Its importance in the transport structure of the city is very important: many routes intersect here and metro stations are located. The square is named in honor of the military victory of England, and the most important attraction here is the column of Admiral Nelson, crowned with his sculptural image.
On the square, you can admire the facade of the National Gallery of London, go to the Church of St. Martin In the Fields and take pictures in the doorway of the Admiralty Arch. By the way, with a successful coincidence of circumstances in the church on Trafalgar Square, it is quite possible to meet its most famous parishioners - members of the royal family.

It is in this architectural style that the building of Westminster Abbey is made, which, along with Tower Bridge, is considered a symbol of London. For many centuries this church served as the place where English monarchs ascended the throne and set off on their last journey.
