It is the oldest wooden covered bridge in Europe, and one of Switzerland's main tourist attractions. On the right magnet - Alphorn, Swiss traditional instrument, some kind of trumpet, but there are no holes and no mechanics. You just have to play it with your lips.

На левом магните Часовенный мост, что в Люцерне. Это самый старый крытый деревянный мост в Европе. На правом магните изображен Альпийский рожок, такая длинная труба(2,5 метра), но без дополнительных отверстий и механизмов.

The Lake District

58.37 КБThe Lake District is a mountainous region in North West England. It lies entirely within Cumbria, shared historically by the counties of Cumberland, Westmorland and Lancashire and is one of England's few mountainous regions.
So, from left to the right:

Coat Of Arms of Westmorland
The design of the shield referred to the two components of the county: on two red bars (from the arms of the de Lancaster family, Barons of Kendal) was placed a gold apple tree (from the seal of the borough of Appleby, for the Barony of Westmorland).

Coat Of Arms of Cumbria
The arms represent the natural features of the county, the flowers referring to the grass of Parnassus which grows on the marshy uplands, while the base of the shield stands for the rivers, lakes, and seaboard.

Coat Of Arms of Lancashire
The arms are quite simple, showing the famous red rose of Lancaster in a distinctive design. The red rose appears in most Lancashire towns and districts.

Isle of Man

45.46 КБFor centuries, the island's symbol has been its ancient triskelion, a device similar to Sicily's Trinacria: three bent legs, each with a spur, joined at the thigh. The three legs are reflected in the island's motto (adopted late in the symbol's history):Quocunque Jeceris Stabit, traditionally translated from Latin as Whithersoever you throw it,
it will stand, or Whichever way you throw it, it will stand.

55.28 КБ Трискелион - символ острова Мэн, похож на сицилийскую Тринакрию, более того, имеет с ней общие корни. Изображение трех согнутых ног отображено в лозунге острова: Quocunque Jeceris Stabit, что в переводе со старославянского означает - куда бы(или каким бы образом) вы не кинули, это останется стоять.

Grauman's Chinese Theatre

76.67 КБ Grauman's Chinese Theatre is a movie theater located at 6925 Hollywood Boulevard in Hollywood. It is located along the historic Hollywood Walk of Fame. Among the theater's most distinctive features are the concrete blocks set in the forecourt, which bear the signatures, footprints, and handprints of popular motion picture personalities from the 1920s to the present day.

Китайский кинотеатр Граумана расположен на Голливудском бульваре в Лос-Анджелесе. Перед театром находится площадка где особо выдающиеся кинозвезды оставляют в бетоне отпечатки своих ног или рук. Если по-простому, то это намного круче, чем попасть на аллею звезд, число которых перевалило уже за 2,5 тысячи.
