Sacre Coeur Montmartre is indeed one of the most photographed parts of Paris, France. Montmartre is the highest point in Paris; a basilica was built on top of it, to honor the Sacred Heart. The project of building the church started in 1875 and it was finished only in 1923; its initial purpose was to honor the 50,000 French soldiers that died in the Franco-Prussian war.
You will be allowed to walk in the wonderful gardens around the basilica and you will marvel at the perfect white of the walls. While being there, you should take several pictures of the city, as this is one of the best places in Paris to do that. The view stretches as far as 50 kilometers / 31 miles away, so the pictures will be great.
You can either walk to Montmartre, or use a funicular that can take you rapidly to the top. Make sure to visit the church early in the morning or late in the afternoon; this way you will have the chance to avoid the huge crowds of tourists.
Another unique area in Europe is the Central Dalmatia, a coastal region that is separated from Italy by the Adriatic Sea. While there, visit Hvar Town, a place where tourists can find numerous shops, bistros and cafes. The island city is built around the TRG Svetog Stjepana, a square that has been built in the fifteen century.
You should also take some photos of the astonishing Arsenal and of the Cathedral of St Stjepan. The city is the perfect place where building and their architecture will help you travel back in time hundreds and hundreds of years ago. Nevertheless, during night Havr Town changes completely, being filled lots of people, locals and tourists, that are looking for a night time vivid experience.
Split is the capital of Souhtern Croatia; there you will be able to visit the palace of Diocletian, an ancient castle that is surrounded by other old, historically important buildings. You will be charmed by the fascinating blending of old, well preserved houses and modern bistros, cafes, bars and restaurants.
The castle was built in the honor of the Roman emperor, at the very beginning of the fourth century. Starting with 1979, UNESCO has included the castle on the World Cultural Heritage List, so it benefited from the gathered funds that helped specialists preserve it properly.
More than this, even though in 2007 the municipality decided to surround the castle with parking lots, shops and a shopping centre, the locals protested and no new buildings were added in the area.
