The most mysterious places of the world
Fly into space, race to build skyscrapers, clone living organisms and do many things that until recently seemed impossible. And still unable to unravel the mysteries of the builders and thinkers who lived thousands of years ago. Ancient boulder weighing hundreds of tons surprises us more than a computer the size of half your palm.
Stonehenge, UK, Salisbury
The altar, Observatory, tomb, calendar? Scientists have not come to a consensus. Five thousand years ago there was a circular ditch and ramparts around it with a diameter of 115 m. Several centuries later, the ancient builders brought here 80 four tons of rocks, and a couple of centuries — 30 megaliths weighing 25 tons. The stones were set in a circle and in the shape of a horseshoe. The kind where Stonehenge survives days, largely the result of human activity of recent centuries. People continued to work on stones: the peasants otkolupyvala from them the pieces, amulets, tourists are marking their territory inscriptions and restorers cooked the rest for the ancients, as here they that stood correctly.

Unfortunately in the second half of the 20th century were destroyed almost all the testimonies, archives and the keepers of the antiquities… Those monks who survived — were in Thailand and Myanmar, where I first heard about ancient unknown civilizations of the forerunners in this region.
Legends about the ancient Angkor I had already collected.
But Angkor as a little drawn to ancient culture, rather, someone tried to repeat the structure of the more ancient architects… And here I stumbled upon them! Since 1996 I occasionally was lucky enough to be in southern Cambodia, where I gathered information.
By that time, I had already the base of observations from our own studies conducted in India.
So I aimed, of course, digging information in this direction.

It is difficult to find the right words to describe impressions
of a Gothic Cathedral. They are high and reach for the sky endless
arrows of towers and turrets, visperhof, finials, pointed arches.
But more striking is not how much height. how much wealth
aspects. opening, when you circle around the Cathedral.
Gothic cathedrals are not only high, but also very
extended: for example Chartres has a length of 130 meters and
length of the transept is 64 meters, and to revolve around him

clear, easily observable forms. the Gothic Cathedral is vast,
often asymmetrical and even heterogeneous in its parts: each of
its facades with their individual portal. Walls are not felt,

arcades, huge Windows, on and on – endlessly
