But, probably not only the natural beauty Sydney is famous, time to him was possible to turn from unbearable settlement of 17 centuries to the economic and cultural center of 21 centuries accepting more of 2,6 million of tourists in year.


The harbour of Sydney is a concentration of its charm, culture and history.

Domes of the House of the Opera, an architectural miracle which in any sense is a symbol of city haughtily look at harbour.



Within the limits of harbour innumerable amount of sights.

As the best are considered Bondy and Manly, but here too there are much others, it is necessary to look. Necessarily visit, located in the neighbourhood Gleb and Newtawn which involve people with the cheap shops, book-stores, bars and cafe. Kings Cross-country something reminds Square Tajms to New York with its cheap hotels and small restaurants.

About 40000 years Sydney was a place of dwelling for natives until captain James Cook has not come in bay Botany in 1770 then the era of the European colonization has begun. Cook has thrown an anchor in harbour and, having researched the coast to the north from it, has declared east part of continent the property of the British Crown.



In 1788 here profits the first European people, and on a present place of Sydney the settlement of convicts has been founded. The place has been cleared away, and there where now there is mooring Sekular, the first houses have grown. The young colony has taken root and the area adjoining to her has been named Rocks. Despite of the first failures and problems, city developed, and during governorship Makuery elegant stone buildings have been constructed many.



In 19 century, as a new push to development of city the gold fever and the World's fair have served. The beginning of 20 centuries has noted been by association of the Australian colonies which have recognized Sydney as the capital. After that the city strongly effuse also has got great value for the country.



Though person now lives in Sydney of 4 million, its inhabitants are more friendly and are hospitable, than inhabitants of other big cities.



Owing to the climate and the most beautiful landscapes, Sydney can offer you many kinds of productive leisure besides many travellers are involved with cultural and historical sights of city centre. In Sydney travellers do not need to be broken off between cultural and natural sights, the capital of Australia has in the active both that and another, and it is a lot of that else.
