The Waterford Bridge This ancient picturesque town is located in the eastern part of the country. It has become a famous center of history and culture many years ago. Waterford is truly rich in beautiful medieval monuments. Wonderful churches, castles and narrow streets, spacious squares and parks - all these factors create the unique atmosphere of harmony and beauty.
Reginald Tower is the main attraction and the symbol of Waterford. The construction of the tower took place during the reign of the Norman Empire. Nowadays the monument reminds of the greatness and power of the town. Its observation platforms feature stunning panoramic views of the town and its suburbs. Mall City Hall Boulevard is the location of one of the most beautiful buildings in the town. This is a magnificent palace, which construction took place in the Georgian times. The main hall of the Palace is decorated with a huge glass chandelier. This luxurious item was created by skilled masters in the 18th century. This fact makes the chandelier even more amazing and admirable.
In this town you will surely find many ancient churches and temples. Cathedral of the Holy Trinity is one of them. The halls of the cathedral are decorated with magnificent frescoes. The inner decoration is also very unusual and beautiful. Among the old buildings present in this town we should also note Bishop's Palace and Waterford City Hall located in the downtown area. Both buildings were built in the late 18th century. Those visitors, who enjoy shopping, should move their feet to suburban area as this is the location of the most famous factory in the district. It produces high quality products made of crystal. Goblets, vases and miniature figurines are traditional souvenirs that are purchased by tourists in the memory of this wonderful city. By the way, entertaining boat trips and cruises are organized in the port of the town. Here guests will be able to enjoy the beauty of the local nature from the deck of a luxury yacht or try fine cuisine in one of the port’s restaurants. Copyright www.orangesmile.com
