Città del Vaticano

.Roma, May 2017

.I’m not the religious person so Vatican city it’s more important for me because of its architecture and solemn atmosphere. It’s amazing that in times without computers there were people who were able to design and build constructions like this, considering that right now we use calculators even to count how much is 2+2..

.The entrance to Saint Peter’s Basilica is free but there where quite long queue to the security check. After passing the gates crowds are not reducing and during whole visit we were slowly moving like in an anthill. I think interior of Basilica is making the biggest impression, with those enormous decorated ceilings which I admire the most.

.It was the first time when I climbed on the dome of Basilica and I think it’s the best part of visiting Vatican city. Even the way up to the top is an adventure, with very narrow and sloping passages right above people visiting the church. And the view is breathtaking! (and for sure worth 8 euro which we had to pay before the entrance).

.amazing monumentality
