Architecture, Museums, Cathedrals & Monuments


Broadway is the largest street of the city and one of its main attractions. The length of the avenue estimates 30 kilometers. Here you will find award-winning restaurants, best shops, theaters and financial institutions. Despite such huge number of various institutions, Broadway is a very peaceful and quiet street. Among the cultural institutions that are worth visiting we should definitely mention Metropolitan Museum, which is one of the most famous art galleries in the world. The opening of the museum took place in 1872. Since that time the museum’s priceless collection has been expanded and enriched by rare masterpieces. A large part of the exhibits, which can be seen today in the halls of the gallery, has been donated by private collectors.

This is a large architectural complex that consists of 14 buildings, as well as a large-scale underground space. The underground floor is occupied by numerous shops and restaurants, and the remaining buildings are dedicated to offices and banks. Museum of Modern Art, which was founded in 1929, is another attractive sight of the city. Its exposition consists of paintings of great European masters. In addition to paintings by Picasso and Gauguin, the museum exhibits works by contemporary masters. The museum is surrounded by a beautiful garden, the main decoration of which is ancient sculptures.
Central Park is simply the best place for walks. The park’s square estimates more than 3 square kilometers. On its territory you will find children's playgrounds, sports facilities, and even a riding school. Fans of fishing will definitely find here much interesting, as well as those people, who simply want to enjoy the magnificence of nature and to escape from the city. If you want to see the panoramic views of the city, you simply need to go up to the observation deck, which is made at the teeth of the crown of the Statue of Liberty. The legendary statue, which was installed in the harbor in 1886, became one of the grandest structures in the world. Today the statue houses the exhibition of Ellis Island Immigration Museum, which tells visitors about the most striking events in the history of the country.
