Five natural phenomena, which you have to see in your life

In the pursuit of sights many travelers and tourists forget about striking natural phenomena, which are available without any entrance fees and obsessive guides. To see them is not always easy, and sometimes it is even more difficult than getting trodden trails to ancient ruins or ancient castles, where the crowds carry tourists. But the effort of the path is worth it. Here's a selection of the most striking natural phenomena, which you have to see in your life:

  1. Northern lights

    The enigmatic Aurora Borealis or the Aurora throughout the history of mankind has fascinated and frightened people. Only relatively recently, in the 18th century, the nature of the mysterious glow in the sky became clear to the people, and the first solved that mystery our great compatriot Mikhail Lomonosov.

    Северное сияние

    To see the glow not only at the North pole, but in the South. Besides a heavenly glow sometimes, and on other planets of the solar system. But since we live on earth, and even in the Northern hemisphere, it is easiest to see in the North, and do not have to get this right on the North pole.

    To see the Northern lights in Russia-even in the middle lane, but in these latitudes it occurs very rarely. More often it is observed in the Northern latitudes, for example in Arkhangelsk and Murmansk. Its occurrence depends on the solar activity, so it is better to monitor solar flares on special sites, and after this you will have from 2 to 5 days to get away to the North (just for a time to the earth fly charged particles from the sun, which create a glow). However in this case there is a chance that you miss because it will be in the daytime or you simply miss because it lasts from several seconds to tens of minutes, and there could be as lucky. And still can prevent to see the Northern lights by bad weather or the glow from the big cities, so it is best to get into the Outback. And yet, the most active season of lights is between September to March.

  2. The volcano

    Hunt for volcano as Northern lights, you will not have as active volcanoes are a long time. However, access to active volcanoes, to see the "fiery hell" is very difficult, because they do not carry tourists on buses. To get in most cases will either have off-road, and then to overcome a long ascent on foot, or even all the way on foot. And not to forget that it is dangerous, and without an experienced guide is not necessary. But to see once in your life bubbling lava firsthand and to fry eggs on the hot bowels of the earth the rocks is worth a dozen of tours to beach resorts.


    For the Russians the most accessible places to see the active volcano, are Kamchatka and the Kuril Islands. Now on the Kamchatka Peninsula has 29 active volcanoes, all of them there 300. Tours can be purchased directly from travel agencies, but the fun is not cheap. The bravest can reach volcanoes and independently, but this requires good preparation, courage and knowledge. All in all, on Our Planet there are more than 1,000 conditionally active volcanoes, i.e. those which retain activity b can erupt in the future and periodically erupt.

  3. Geyser

    The geyser is much safer volcanoes, and to see them easier. These water "mini-volcanoes" are inextricably linked to these volcanoes and often form next to them, so it would be ideal to see them during one expedition.


    Russia is one of the largest geyser fields in the world and the only in Eurasia – this is the Valley of Geysers in Kamchatka. This area is a nature reserve and closed to independent visit, but you can get there with a guided tour. Just do not think that it will be a walk on a comfortable minivan: you'll either have to fork out for a VIP tour in a helicopter flight or go on a long hike with a backpack. Prices for tours, of course, prohibitive. But there is an alternative: it is much cheaper to get to Iceland to see the geysers and beauty, than to visit a remote corner of our country.

  4. A hurricane or a tornado and firestorm

    Fortunately, to see the destructive power of the tornado had a few, and even fewer people have seen this rare natural phenomenon as firestorm. Because of their brutal strength which spares neither nature, no people, no buildings. And those who have seen real powerful tornado and did not suffer from it, can call themselves real lucky. And not only because lived, but because they were lucky enough to see this rare phenomenon, the nature of which is still not fully explained by science.


    The most "visited" place to have tornadoes is North America, particularly the Central States of the USA. But the most reliable place where you can see tornado, is Florida on the East coast, especially in the island chains of the Florida Keys (Florida Keys) where they originate over water almost every day. But the real devastating tornado occurs very rarely, and they really need to hunt.

    The period of life of a tornado varies from several minutes to tens of minutes, but the destructive can last for hours. So, Melunsky tornado in 1917 for 7 hours and 20 minutes of my life killed 110 people.

  5. Solar and lunar Eclipse

    This is perhaps the most secure, clear and predictable to date, the phenomenon presented, although its origins lie far beyond our planet. Scientists with an accuracy of seconds the learned to determine the time and place where you can watch Eclipse in the years ahead, and we just have to hope that this time we're not busy with their daily chores, and the weather not hide the action behind the clouds.

    Солнечное затмение

    Solar eclipses are not so rare, usually a year is from 2 to 5. This total solar Eclipse can be observed only in certain places on the planet, but unfortunately, most of these places have on the surface of the oceans. Therefore, to see a total solar Eclipse is possible not many, and if you also want this, you may have to go a long journey. Fortunately, the Internet can I find a schedule of eclipses, indicating the exact time and places where you can see it.

    Total lunar Eclipse to see much easier, because they are usually seen with almost half of the entire surface of the earth, but they occur less frequently, and it's not as spectacular as solar.

Remained a few days from the annual amount of vacation, and we decided that in October, on the anniversary of our life together, you need to go somewhere. Considered different options and I noticed that greatly decreased the exchange rate of the Turkish Lira. The option "All inclusive" we are not much interested in, but to walk on the old streets and eat local snacks — we are always behind! So the choice was made in Istanbul! The oldest city in the world with a huge history! Reasonable the flight was only two. Direct flights Saint Petersburg — Istanbul, Turkish Airlines, the comfort of the aircraft and or airline Win on their "Flying Shuttle", but at 15 000R. cheaper. Given that this is the third holiday this year, 15 000R. economy is very bad and the choice was made. Had to take another train tickets to Moscow and back, which left us at 4 000R. for two to both sides. We saved 11 000R., and it is also nice. Quietly got on the train to Moscow, where the metro and bus to the airport, and the journey began. We first flew out of the international zone of the airport Vnukovo, and was a little shocked. The fact that the front Desk has accumulated a huge queue for was very thorough checking the size of hand Luggage that you can carry on Board the airline's Victory was not the most unpleasant thing. Let me be offended the heads of the Vnukovo airport and will fly the angry comments, but I will speak the truth he saw with his own eyes. In the international zone of the airport Vnukovo if all extinct. People and flights a lot, but the lighting is very weak, and in some places so all dark. Duty Free shops almost there, half of the space just empty. Around very dirty. ...

Hello! I would like to tell you about the national dishes of Spain. I think paella have all become boring, so we skip it. It ceased to be something special in the Spanish kitchen and in General it has a lot of dishes, which are much more interesting and unusual. It serves, the existence of some you may not even know. So, pododvigat to the table, impose napkins, we begin tasting. Garlic shrimp This dish in Spain belong to the appetizers (tapas). Shrimp in garlic is an easy delicious food that is very popular in the South of Spain, where seafood are ready to jump to you in a plate. Gambas can be found in bars and restaurants across the country. In some institutions, the shrimp are presented in as a main dish. The main ingredients in seemingly the same for all - the shrimp, garlic and olive oil. But you will never find dishes that would have the same taste. Spanish cooks tend to enrich their recipes with special touches that make the dish a little more refined. But the classic recipe will always include a bit of dry sherry , sweet Spanish paprika, fresh lemon juice and parsley. Octopus from Galicia in Spite of their particular kind, the signature dish of Galicia's amazing also and sostvenno entire region. If you have the opportunity to visit this lush green corner of Spain that is widely known for its amazing seafood, you should definitely try the amazing Galician octopus with paprika flavor.
