Ireland - moving around the country
Thanks to the relief of Ireland, the country was able to build a quality rail network. To date, it covers most of Ireland; absolutely all major cities are linked by rail. Trains in the country usually go at high speed. Their technical condition is also at a high level. The State regularly allocates funds for the renovation of trains and the acquisition of new wagons and trains. The wagons themselves are of two classes: the standard and the super standard (the improved first class). The cost of travel differs depending on the class of the wagon, the chosen route and direction, as well as the distance. In large cities and in the capital, suburban electric trains also run. They are designed for domestic traffic between areas of cities. Such trains run from six in the morning until midnight. The interval is about twenty minutes.
Nature and parks of Ireland
Burren National Park was created to protect limestone rocks. It is built of limestone and has a very scarce plant world. The modern landscape of these lands was formed during the last icing of the planet. One can find alpine plants that are adjacent to the subtropical climate. Many sprigs make their way through the cracks in the rocks. That's why the landscape looks fascinating. The most northern national park of Ireland is Glenveagh located off the coast of the Gulf of Donegal in the county of the same name. The territory is occupied mainly by forests, valleys, and picturesque lakes. Reindeer live in the park; animals can often be found near the lakes. The valleys are covered with a dense vegetation of beautiful emerald color. The main attraction of the park is Glenveagh Castle built in the 19th century.
