China has an impressive terrain sprawling within the Zhangye Danxia Geopark. It is rightly considered one of the most beautiful places in the world.

Everyone knows that Britain is also commonly referred to as Foggy Albion. While the fogs are understandable (the weather conditions here are not the most favorable), but the Albion raises questions. The fact is that the word itself is formed from two roots, which are translated from the Indo-European as “white” and “hill. When mariners approached the lands of the country, they were the first to notice white cliffs protruding from the gray fog. The most famous are the cliffs of Dover, the view of which is simply fascinating. By the way, you can see some fantastic photos of cathedrals in our other selection.
