London is so old! The Romans founded (основали) it more than 2000 years ago. They started it as a fortress. Later they transformed it into (преобразовали в) a town. Different people came to damage and destroy it! But Londoners restored (реставрировали) their city again and again. How skilful they were!
The Tower of London
Now I understand that London is really a precious (драгоценный) stone of the British Crown (короны). I can't forget its places of interest. Westminster Abbey is magnificent (великолепный)! It is a church near the Houses of Parliament. British monarchs are crowned in Westminster Abbey.
I liked St Paul's Cathedral, the main church of London. It is so big! They treasure (высоко ценят) it because many famous people are buried (похоронены) there, Lord Nelson for example. Buckingham Palace is the residence of the British monarchs. It is wonderful! Best British designers decorated it. But they say that the Queen likes to stay at her castles outside London.
The British Museum and the National Gallery house (вмещают) world treasures; their exhibitions contain (содержат) real masterpieces: rare (редкие) paintings, ancient (древние) sculptures, unique books, works of cast masters, arms and armory.
