We know that the world is filled with breathtaking sights; both natural and man-made. And each time we decide to visit someplace there’s something marvellous to look at. But there are a few others that are incredibly beautiful and should get the deserved attention.
So here’s a list of tourist sights that will mesmerize you at the very first glance:
Metalmorphosis The Mirror Fountain in the USA
David Cerny constructed a mirrored water fountain at the Whitehall Technology Park in the city of Charlotte. The sculpture is constructed by using stainless steel, which rotates 360°, and looks like an enormous head.
The Julie Penrose Fountain in the USA
Right at the centre of Colorado Springs, this famous fountain attracts all the attention. This great work of art has been inspired by the concept of the water cycle and the relationship between earth and the atmosphere. This impressive sight is a delight for people who want to stroll in this beautiful park.
Swing above the clouds, Turkey
If you’ve ever wondered what heaven is like, then Turkey gives this chance to you. They’ve constructed a swing that rises above a thick layer of clouds and has naturally become one of the most famous tourist attractions.
Guangzhou Circle in Guangdong province
This building is a landmark in China since it is the world’s largest trading centre for raw plastic material. It is also the new home of the Guandong Plastic Exchange.
The famous “Elephant Rock” located in Iceland.
The Westman Island has a rock, naturally built, in the shape of an Elephant. It’s in fact both the shape and the massive size of the rock that attract tourists to visit it at least once.
The Louvre Pyramid in Paris
Paris is known for the very famous Eiffel Tower, and rightly so. But what most people often miss out is the Louvre Pyramid made of glass and metal. It’s also known as the Louvre Museum and is as mesmerizing from the outside as from the inside.
The Golden Bridge in Vietnam
An arched bridge in the shape of two gigantic hands, holding it from beneath, is under construction by the well-known TA Landscape Architecture. The bridge connects 2 cable car stations and leads to a resort in the mountains. It has naturally gained a lot of tourist attention in the recent past.
Jatayu in India
Almost every city in India has monuments that are a sight worth visiting. And amongst these many tourist locations, one really admirable sculpture is in a National Park in Kerala. In the shape of a giant bird, in the centre of the park, lies a beautiful stone sculpture. As mentioned in Indian mythological epic Ramayana, the bird is not an ordinary one but is Jayatu; the one that saved Sita’s life but lost its own.
The ‘Colossus’ sculpture in the city of Florence
A colossal sculpture, which is half the mountain and half man, was constructed sometime in the latter half of the 1500s. However, this rocky mountain has many secrets held within its rooms that are hidden inside its mysterious architecture. These secret rooms make this stone construction come to life.
The Digital Fountain, USA
Chad Knight, one of the most famous digital water sculptors designed this marvellous fountain in the city of Oregon, USA. It’s such a mesmerizing sight that one can spend hours admiring its splendour.
