Eighth wonder of the world. What is the Salisbury cathedral well-known for?


As appears from an interview of RT of Alexander Petrov and Ruslan Boshirov, they have come to see this temple in March to Salisbury. Travelers from Russia already half a year call this English city of Skripalevkoy the Salisbury cathedral. Photo: depositphotos.com the Salisbury cathedral for fun is called now the eighth wonder of the world. His official name — Virgin Mary's cathedral. At the same time Boshirov in an interview calls him "solsberetsky". It is the cleanest sample of the English gothic style: walls from a local light gray stone, air bas-reliefs, a spike the highest that have remained in England — 123 meters. Process of his construction was allegorically sung in the novel by the Nobel laureate William Golding. Next year there will be exactly 800 years as construction of the temple has begun. It was never completed, and built in only 38 years — for those times extremely quickly. One of four copies of the Great charter of liberties is stored in cathedral and there is the oldest tower clockwork in the world, the guide in Salisbury Liudmila Harrison-Jones tells: — Ropes are attached to bells on the cathedral bell tower, and everyone half an hour clang a bell. And they still act. — About a tourist season you can tell? When does the main stream, what weather during this period begin? — Our tourists go all the year round. In the company with which I work, once a week surely a trip to Stonehenge near Salisbury and they all the year round drive such program. — In Salisbury come to look at cathedral or there still something interesting is? — In the beginning we go to look at these old stones, and near, literally in 30 minutes, Salisbury: cathedral and small pedestrian [route] on the city. It is a lot of ancient beautiful pubs. An hour two at least, if with a lunch, then three. The cathedral can be bypassed in 40 minutes. The cathedral in three kilometers to the southeast from the center is located. Skripali lived in a northwest part of the city. Tourists can visit freely cathedral though in it regularly there pass services. Only for rise on a tower it is necessary to reserve tickets. Everyone costs 13,5 pounds sterling - it is more than one thousand rubles. And still the ticket from London to Salisbury and back, one way — an hour and a half. Only for the sake of cathedral through the half-countries nobody will go, the blogger and the guide on London Konstantin Pinayev: — the Cathedral grandiose and beautiful assures, but just for him through the half-countries you won't go. — On how many do tourists come? — For half a day. — Whether it is worth coming in general to Great Britain for three days and one of these days … — I consider that I am not necessary. If they wanted to go there, to them much cheaper, more conveniently, it would be simpler and more logical to remove some hotel just somewhere in Salisbury, but not to pay in London. And tickets in Salisbury there and back on one person will cost, probably, 40-50 pounds, that is is expensive, it didn't make any sense at all. At least I know nobody who would go only to Salisbury. The curious fact, considering the risen talk on Boshirov and Petrov's perhaps nonconventional orientation: bishop Salisbury че
