CHESTER – A touch of Roman Empire

EN:  Lets go to a beautiful, unique and historical city …Chester!!!!

What a charismatic city is Chester who has the most complete city walls, the oldest racecourse, and largest Roman Amphitheater in Britain, plus an 1000 year old cathedral and 700 year old unique shopping rows. Chester is also home to the UK’s number one zoo!!

So are you curios???

To have some fun lets go to the Chester Zoo! With over 20.000 animals to discover I think you will not know where to start from! It was the same for me, as a tip from me,you should visit it during the summer time just because you will be able to explore all the animals habitats and the gardens ! During the winter time some of the animals are hiding insiden and the gardens don’t have the woooow factor:D!

RO: Haideti sa mergem intr-un oras frumos, unic si istoric…Chester!!!

Ce oras carismatic este Chester-ul care are aproape cele mai complete ziduri de protectie ale vechiului oras, cel mai vechi hipodrom si cel mai mare amfiteatru  Roman din Marea Britanie, in plus o catedrala veche de 1000 de ani si stradute unice vechi de peste  700 de ani. Chester este casa pentru gradina zoologica numarul unu din UK!!!

Sunteti curiosi???

Ca sa ne distram un pic haideti la gradina zoologica !!!! Cu peste 20.000 de animale de descoperit ma gandesc, ca nici nu ai stii de unde sa incepi!!! Eu am facut la fel, dar ca un sfat , ar trebuii sa o vizitati in timpul verii deoarece puteti explora toate habitaturile animalelor si gradinile!!! In timpul iernii cateva din animale erau ascunse si gradinile nu au acel wooow factor:D!

EN:Chester was founded as a “castrum” or Roman fort with the name Deva Victrix in the reign of the Emperor Vespasian in 79 AD. One of the main army camps in Roman Britain, Deva later became a major civilian settlement. You can fell like a Roman walking on the walls of the city or you can try the Roman Tours with a ‘real roman’ using authentic clothing and equipment, their soldiers brave the climate to bring you an informative, educational and interactive experience suitable for any group or age range.

RO: Chester a fost fondat ca un “castru” sau fort roman cu numele Deva Victrix în timpul domniei împăratului Vespasian în anul 79 AD. Una dintre principalele lagăre de armată Romane din Marea Britanie, Deva a devenit ulterior o așezare civilă majoră. Poti sa te simti ca un Roman mergand pe zidurile romane ale orasului sau poti incerca turul Roman cu un “adevarat roman” care foloseste haine si echipament autentic , acesti soldati curajosi pe orice vreme o sa va ofere informatii, intr-o experienta educativa si intercativa potrivite pentru orice interval de varsta.

EN: The Rows are unique in Britain.They consist of buildings with shops or dwellings on the lowest two stories. The shops or dwellings on the ground floor are often lower than the street and are entered by steps, which sometimes lead to a crypt-like vault. Those on the first floor are entered behind a continuous walkway, often with a sloping shelf between the walkway and the railings overlooking the street. Much of the architecture of central Chester looks medieval and some of it is but by far the greatest part of it, including most of the black-and-white buildings, is Victorian, a result of what Pevsner termed the “black-and-white revival”.

RO: Aleile sunt unice în Marea Britanie. Ele constau în clădiri cu magazine sau locuințe la primele două etaje. Magazinele sau locuințe la parter, sunt de multe ori la un nivel mai jos decat strada . O mare parte a arhitecturii centrale din  Chester este medievala, însă de departe cea mai mare parte a acesteia, inclusiv cele mai multe clădiri alb-negru, este victoriană, un rezultat a ceea ce Pevsner la numit “negru-alb renaștere “.
