Mexico City - the city of the eagle and the cactus

26/12/2023
The capital of Mexico, Mexico City is one of the most populated in the world. Now about 9 million people live in it. within the legal boundaries of the city and over 21 million - within the urban agglomeration (9th place in the world). It was built on the site of the Aztec Tenochtitlan, which at one time was also one of the largest cities (up to 500 thousand inhabitants, it is believed). But little is left of those days. Modern Mexico City is a combination of Spanish colonial architecture, art deco style, glass skyscrapers and numerous poor neighborhoods on the outskirts.

Once in Mexico

Mexico. Even the name sounds fascinating. Ancient Maya and Aztecs, Mexican bandits in a sombrero with Colt in his belt, sipping tequila in a dirty tavern ... been a while since I wanted to stay in this epic edge. And the case turned up appropriate - Cuban visa expired, we had to leave for a few days and come back. So, my Mexican 6 days with Russian gidskoy party.

Chichen Itza in detail

Probably the first association that arise about the mention of Mexico - is tequila, sombreros and pyramids. And if you ask about the most famous Mexican pyramid, many immediately recalled about Chichen Itza. That is why it is so? After all, the pyramid - temple of Kukulkan in the former ancient city of Chichen Itza is difficult to find a lot of adjectives by adding the word "most". This pyramid is not the highest, not the most beautiful (in my opinion) is not the oldest in Mexico. Perhaps it is the symbolic (just remember about 365 steps!) And certainly the most "hyped".
