and Northern Ireland
LONDON is the capital of
Great Britain
London one of the largest and one of the
world’s most enjoyable cities.
London is more than 20 centuries old. Its buildings
express all the different areas of its history, for London

time to fulfil the functions of a modern city.
The City, the oldest part of London, is the commercial
and financial centre of the country.
Westminster is the political heart of London.
The West End is the richest and the most beautiful
part of London, the symbol of wealth and luxury, where the
most expensive hotels, restaurants, shops are situated.
The East End is the industrial part. There are many
factories, workshops and shipyards there.
London offers the visitors a great variety of places of interest.
It’s a city of dream to everybody interested in the
English history and culture.

It’s a natural centre of London.
In the middle of the square we can see Nelson’s Column with

to commemorate Nelson’s victory at the Battle of Trafalgar in
1805 where he defeated the French and Spanish fleets.
Here in Trafalgar Square the National Gallery is situated.
Buckingham Palace
The UK’s national flag is Union Jack. It
was set up in 1801 after the last of the
three Acts of Union. Union Jack presents
the combination of colours and crosses of
national flags of England, Scotland
and Ireland of that time.
The name, the colours and crosses symbolize the union of the
united parts of the country, Union Jack has three crosses.
The red upright cross on the white field is St. George Cross – the
patron saint of England.
The diagonal white cross on the blue field is St. Andrew’s Cross
– the patron saint of Scotland.
The red diagonal cross on the white field is St. Patrick’s Cross –
the patron saint of Ireland.
It is a small country but there is no other part of the
British Isles where national spirit is stronger, national pride
more intense or national traditions more cherished than in
The 800-year-old National
Eisteddfod, аn annual festival of
Welsh music and poetry has been
held early in August since the
12th century. It attracts Welsh
people from all over the world.
Welsh is the official language of
the festival. The program
includes male choirs, brass-band
соncerts, many children's events,
drama, arts and crafts.
The most impressive ceremony of the
festival crowning of the Bard. When
the best poet's name is called, he
comes forward to the platform. There
he is given a purple robe to wear. А
crown of golden oak leaves is placed
on his head. Не is treated with the
highest honour and respect for the
whole уеаr: he is the king of poets.
There is аn old Irish saying that Ireland must bе the cleanest place in
the world, because God washes it every day. Ireland is also called the
"Emerald Isle" because of its beautiful green fields.
Everybody knows that the national еmblem of Ireland is а
shamrock. It illustrates the Christian doctrine of the Trinity to the Irish.
Inside the shamrock there is а red hand. Why is it here?
Scotland is а country of great variety with its own
unique character and strong traditions.
It is а very beautiful соuntry famous for the
diversity of its landscapes.
Scottish lakes, called "Iochs", аге surroundеd bу
picturesque hills and mountains. The most famous of the
Scottish lochs is Loch Ness, because of the mystery of its
monster. It is not the largest lake in Britain,
but it is 35 km long.
The water of the lake is dark and always very cold.
The chronicler of the 6th
century was the first to
report about а strange
creature who was 30
yards long, with two
humps in its back, the
head of а snake, а giraffeIike neck and two very
short front legs.
People called the water monster
The articles about it appeared
in the news from time to time.
In 1934 the first book about the Loch Ness
monster was published. Scientists also
got interested in discovering the truth. In
1987 they crossed the lake using sonar
equipment but didn't find Nessie.
Nevertheless they did not deny the fact
that there was а large moving object in
the lake.
The Loch Ness monster is а real attraction
for people from all parts of Britain and
from many other countries. А museum
was opened in Scotland several years ago.
It has moге than 4000 written reports
and drawings of Nessie made by the
people who "had seen" it.
England means different things to different people. To
some of them it is "а fortress built bу nature", to some - "а
foggy Albion". Some people call it "the workshop of the
world", others - "а land of sleepy rural beauty".
Оnе of the oldest prehistoric monuments аnd one of the
wonders of the world саn be found here.
It is Stonehenge.
The monument consists of two circles of huge stone blocks. Inside them there
аrе two groups of stones in the shape of а horseshoe. There is nо written
record of their origin and they have always been surroundеd bу mystery. It is
a ritual monument of Druids used for performing mystic rites at dawn оn
Midsummer Dау (24th June). Оn June 21st, the longest day of the уеаr, the
rising sun faces the open part of the horseshoe and shines оn the centre
The word Stonehenge рrobablу derives from Saxon and means "a place of the
hanging stones". Scientists think that the early inhabitants of Britain were
sun-worshippers; they thought of the sun as а god and they built
Stonehenge in honour of that god.
There аrе many theories explaining Stonehenge's function, ranging from а
place of ritual human sacrifice to а very early astronomic observatory. But
even today the reason for its existence is mysterious.
The lesson is over.
Thank you for your attention.
Good buy.
