畅打一生No matter where I go, as long as time permits, I will definitely visit the local museum. Because he allows you to understand the local customs and historical heritage most directly. The Kelvingrove Art Museum is located near the main building of the University of Glasgow. It is a Gothic building with a dazzling red brick wall. It's free to visit and there are plenty of parking spaces. The museum has a large area and a wide range of collections, ranging from animal fossils from ancient times to modern paintings and sculptures. It is a museum exhibiting multi-element art. Among them, Asian elements, Chinese antiques, world famous paintings and sculptures are all exhibited in kind. What impressed me more is the self-portrait of Van Gogh, the tortoiseshell fan fractured fan and embroidered pieces of the royal family of the Qing Dynasty in China, the ancient blue and white porcelain of China, the silverware left behind by the Vikings, the animal fossils of ancient times and the reflections of Glasgow's different periods Artifacts and so on.

Historical Site
qf3456792Stirling Castle is worth visiting for those who have gone to Scotland. This sense of history, the sense of vicissitudes and the harmony and unity of the surrounding environment, basically fully experience the movie "Brave Heart". Look at these photos of me, it feels like a blockbuster [view]

Churches and Cathedrals
山水人生It is also easy to see the tall Glasgow Cathedral in the distance on the streets of the city. It is surrounded by statues of religious figures and behind it is a green hillside, bathing itself in the rising blue sky and white clouds. This cathedral, which was built in the sixth century AD, is the only building with the longest history in the city of Glasgow. It is said that the construction of this cathedral took more than three hundred years before it was completed. How long-lasting perseverance is needed . After that, this cathedral has escaped the devastation of the religious revolution several times and has been fortunately preserved to this day. Of course, people can still see that there are various degrees of damage to the church, and even some places can be seen clearly. To the ruins of that year. We walked into this free and open cathedral, and many tourists have already visited it. This cathedral is also one of the must-see attractions for those who travel to Glasgow. The interior of the entire cathedral is very magnificent and tall. The arched walls formed by ancient columns extend the roof of the church to the sky, and the wooden ceiling is inlaid with various national emblems. The church walls are surrounded by tombstones and carvings. Many tourists who have studied religion are watching these tombstones carefully, but we can only look at the macro scene. The most different from ordinary cathedrals is that the glass windows of this church seem to be relatively unremarkable. In the center of the church, the cross-section is divided into two parts by a stone altar screen. Seven pairs of stone statues are scattered around the screen, which is said to symbolize the "seven deadly sins" in Catholicism. We started to compare the text introduction, and after looking for it for a long time, we didn't understand it. Then we asked the staff to get some guidance. There is also a basement with a large area in this church, and this basement, which also has an arched building, houses a sacred tombstone, surrounded by red ropes. This tombstone belongs to St. Mungo, the patron saint of Glasgow. According to legend, at the end of the 6th century, this saint established Glasgow and named it here. Of course, this also makes Glasgow Cathedral a witness to the history of the city. On the murals behind the tombstone and on the carpet of the church, the tour guide will generally introduce visitors to the four miracles unique to this church: birds that can’t fly, trees that can’t grow tall, bells that can’t ring, and no swimming. Fish. Such a connotative cathedral is so old, it seems that it is rare.

Historical Architecture
M44***33If you want to feel the nostalgia and don't want to go too far, you can visit low-rent housing. It reflects the life of the middle class in Glasgow from the late 19th century to the early 20th century. The owner and his family have lived here for more than 50 years. Inside the house is the distinctive side bed and the kitchen design and furniture at that time. This place is really interesting. The homeowners at that time would not manage the house in a clean and orderly manner like the current Scottish National Trust. However, although exhibition rooms have been added to the basement level, it is still often crowded.

轻轻的一个蚊George Square is located in the center of Glasgow and is one of the symbols of Glasgow. In 2011, Brad Pitt also chose this location for filming "World War Z". The buildings around the square are full of Victorian atmosphere. Figure 2 The white building is the Glasgow City Hall, in the style of the Italian Renaissance. It was completed in 1888. The entire building is a classic of Victorian architecture. The stairs made of marble and pure white alabaster, and the exquisite vaults, everywhere can show the charm of Glasgow as an industrial city at the time of the Industrial Revolution. It is said that 10 million bricks, 9,900 cubic meters of stones and 537 cubic meters of granite were used in the construction.
