Culture of Denver. Places to visit - old town, temples, theaters, museums and palaces

The Colorado State Capitol building is quite remarkable from an architectural point of view. It draws everyone's attention from the very first minutes, as it rises above the city as if its defender. The building's construction was completed in 1901, neoclassicism was chosen as the style. The government institution's interior is no less noteworthy. Near the Capitol is the Civic Center Park where one can have a great time walking or sitting on a bench, enjoying the extraordinary peace. Here you can see the Voorhies Memorial, which pays tribute to all victims of the Second World War.

On the opposite side of the Colorado State Capitol building is the Molly Brown House Museum. A woman who owned the house became famous mostly for being one of the Titanic survivors. It has preserved the situation in which this socialite and philanthropist lived, so you can easily plunge into the atmosphere of that time. Perhaps one day wouldn't be enough for exploring the huge Fairmount Cemetery. Its territory accommodates many interesting monuments, crypts, and gravestones, mostly politicians and officials are buried here.
Denver is a university town, which is confirmed by two prestigious universities based here. First of all, this is the University of Denver whose building resembles typical European educational institutions. It was founded in 1864, and its interior and exterior still keep the history of that time. Another prestigious educational institution is Regis University founded in 1877 at the initiative of the Society of Jesus, and, as you might understand, it has a Catholic and Jesuit focus. It is very well maintained, due to which a walk around the University feels like a real tour. Copyright

The city's main religious monument is the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception. The beautiful Gothic church designed and built by Leon Coquard in 1911 is famous for its wonderful stained glass windows. On the territory of the Latin cross-shaped building, one can discover a statue of John Paul II who visited the cathedral in 1993. St. John's Cathedral is another Denver's sacred landmark striking with its amazingly beautiful stained glass windows. The neo-Gothic building was erected in 1905. Those who prefer small, cozy churches will appreciate the peace reigning in St. Patrick's Mission Church. Here is a Hindu temple in the city, and its name is Orgyen Khamdroling Dharma Center. It is truly impressive with its colorfulness.

Georgetown Loop Railroad

From the series “The Most Dangerous Railroads in the World”
Later, the railroad was decided to reconstruct and use for tourism, since it is a good alternative to the most extreme world’s attractions.

The most frightening and dangerous section of the track is a bridge named Devil’s Gate. … Read further
