"Now I would like to tell you something about interesting building and places in London.
The Houses of Parliament are in gothic style but were built only in the 19th century after the old building had burnt down. The only part which escaped the fire was Westminster Hall. There is also a famous clock-tower with Big Ben and its characteristic bill-ringing.
Whitehall is the wtreet where the government offices are. Horse Guards Parade takes place here.
Downing Street 10 is the official home of British Prime Minister.
Westminster Abbey was founded in the 11th century. Britain´s Kings and Queens are crowned here. England´s greatest poets, artists, statesmen and other famous people are buried here in the Poet´s Corne (e. g. Chaucer, Newton, Wordsworth, Handel etc.). The Abey is an excellent example of gothic architecture.
St Paul´s Cathedral is one of the largest cathedrals in the world. It stands in the City. This great renaissance dome is the work of the famous architect Sir Christopher Wren and it was built in the 17th century. The Cathedral is known for its Whispering Gallery. Standing on this Gallery you can clearly hear what is whispered on the opposite side, which is 107 feet far from you. During the World War II it was badly damaged by bombs.
The City is the oldest part of London around St. Paul´s Cathedral. The City was founded by Romans in 43 AD. There are many banks and offices here.
The Tower was built in the 11th century. It served as royal palace first, then prison and fortress. It is a museum now. The Crown Jewels guarded by the Beefeaters in their traditional Tudor uniforms are kept here.
Tower Bridge is one of the most famous symbols of London. It was built only in the last century. It can open in the middle and let large ships go through.
Trafalgar Square was named after Admiral Nelson´s victory over Napoleon at the Battle of Trafalger in 1805. Nelson´s satue is situated on a high column. The square with its fountains is a very popular place for various meetings and demonstrations. At Christmas time a big Christmas tree stands here and on Nww Year´s Eve people gather here at midnight, sing and dance.
The National Gallery is in Trafalgar Square. It houses paintings by nearly all the great European artists of the past and a large collection of British paintings and scuoptures. The admission is free.
The British Museum is the largest museum in the world. It houses the biggest collection of all kinds of animals and minerals and rocks. There is a collection of fine and applied arts of all countries, periods and styles, e. g. antiquities from ancient Greece, Rome and the Orient, Egyptian mummies, Middle Ages manuscripts and also a good collection of drawings by the Czech artist Václav Hollar."
