Weekly Photo Challenge: Heritage

This week’s photo challenge is Heritage. To me, heritage is much about history and much about culture, – two things that growing up in St Petersburg, home of one of the world’s largest museums and a scene of many, well, interesting historical events, has deeply ingrained into my character. That made me put work aside for a moment and go through the pictures of my recent travels.

As you might have noticed, I like learning new things. A few weeks ago I discovered a new country for me – Tunisia. It’s capital, Tunis, has the world’s largest mosaics collection, Le Bardo. And that’s just breathtaking: hundreds and hundreds of square meters of history laid out in gorgeous rainbow colored tiles, floor to ceiling.


Which museum have you recently discovered?

  1. Ooh I love those tiles – they remind me of my trip to the Alhambra! I’ve recently been working my way round the municipal museums in Lyon – the Musée de l’Imprimerie et de la Communication Graphique had a great temporary exhibition on the bande dessinée 🙂 It covered the theory behind the bande dessinée through a variety of examples (graphic novels, magazine comic strips etc.), which I found really interesting.

      • I think the level of enthusiasm for museums is about the same amongst my close friends! Equally, I’m aware that some museums are fantastic while others can be distinctly sub-par. I tend to stick to museums related to my own field of interest, though when I’m abroad I usually visit a museum or two related to the place I’m in (e.g. the Hiroshima Peace Memorial Museum).

  2. My favourite museum is the open air museums in Aarhus, Denmark called Den Gamle By. One gets a feel for how life was lived in Denmark, all those years ago. Realistic and authentic, staff dress up in period dress and cook period meals. Always interactive and fun!
