Back in 1986, Vancouver hosted the Expo international level exhibition, for which a building equipped with the latest technology was built. The exhibition ended, and the building was given to one of the most fascinating museums in the world – the World of Science.
True, this is rather not one building, but the whole city, where even with the smallest children you can wander for at least several hours. There are six pavilions-galleries in total. Each of them is reserved for a specific topic.
The largest gallery is called “Eureka.” Expositions are presented here, allowing people to understand the true nature of light, water and sound, as well as comprehend the laws according to which they are built.
The presented exhibits are interactive, they can be picked up, as well as experimented with them.
No less interesting is the Illusion Hall, where you can see how straight lines can bend depending on certain conditions, and a black-and-white picture becomes wonderfully colored.
In the gallery “Our World” are the skeletons of people and representatives of the animal world. You can also play and touch with them.
Another pavilion will surely appeal to adults. “Body works” – here you can put experiments on the human body. Thanks to this, the physical and spiritual laws that make our body work are understood.
The ground floor is a platform for scientific shows, which are held here, by the way, hourly. Everyone can grasp the essence of many physical laws, feel gravity on themselves or conduct a fascinating experiment.
In addition to the show, lectures are organized where experiments are shown after the theory.
The museum has its own cinema (top floor). Entrance to it is paid extra.
Banff National Park has become the location of the most beautiful natural lake – Peyto (English Peyto Lake). It is the glacier that nourishes it, allowing it to remain full-flowing. This lake, located in Canada, is called the most photographed on a global scale.
Photographers recommend creating memorable pictures of the landmark at noon when the sun is beaming in the sky, the rays of which are refracted by the green spectrum in the turquoise glacial water.
The lake is located on a hill (altitude 1860 meters above sea level). Peyto is 2800 meters long and 800 wide. Water surface reaches 5.3 km². Tourists say that if you look at the lake from above, you can recognize the shape of a wolf’s head in it, while others claim that it looks like a necklace.
The lake is named after Bill Peyto (traveler). He, in fact, found him in the first.
The city of Alberta is about 261 kilometers. Driving just along the road to notice the lake does not work, for this you need to turn off the road and drive for about 15 minutes.
From a height you can see the blue surface of Peyto and take plenty of pictures of the bewitching beauty of nature’s creation.
