You can’t think Australia and not think of its most recognizable monument, the Sydney Opera House. The white building has become synonymous with the culture of the continent, along with kangaroos, koalas and surfers. What makes this monument so special, and is it worth a journey inside instead of a notable photograph of its exterior when passing though Sydney?
The Sydney Opera House may have opera in its name, but it is not exclusively dedicated to those types of performances. It’s home to diverse events including music, dance, theater, magic, comedy, education and all forms of art.
Its current lineup of events include Antidote, a thought-provoking collection on world politics today; The Unbelievables, an extravaganza of circus and magic; Badu Gili, a dazzling water and light show; Dinner, a hilariously dark comedy show; and more.
The Opera House isn’t all about shows and entertainment, they’ve created learning experiences and digital classrooms to invest in education and the future of youth. Its website also provides a wealth of resources to learn and explore the history of the Opera House and its events and exhibitions.
It dedicates itself to charity and the spread of knowledge to Australia and its many visitors. On your next visit to Sydney, take home more than just a pretty picture and experience the Sydney Opera House for yourself.
Welcome to Rhodes, a medieval treasure beautifully preserved throughout the centuries. Rhodes is the capital of the Dodecanese, an island ideal not only for those who want to relax, but also for those looking for an action-packed holiday! With its bright green hills, rich green valleys and uninterrupted line of golden beaches, Rhodes is truly a blessed place. “The sun island” has more sunshiny days and milder temperatures throughout the year than any other location in Greece. It is, after all, one of the country’s easternmost places and among the first to welcome summer on its impressive beaches. Add in the excellent facilities for tourism, the island’s special blend of cosmopolitan and traditional, and numerous cultural and archaeological sites, the most important being the Medieval (Old) Town, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and you’ve got the perfect holiday destination. While on Rhodes, don’t miss a daytrip to nearby Sými. An island of sponge divers and seamen, Sými used to have 30,000 inhabitants before the Second World War and was the richest island in the Dodecanese, despite its small size. Today, Sými attracts many visitors thanks to its beautifully preserved Neo-Classical buildings and the famous Archangel Michael monastery at Panormitis.
