Atomium/Атомиум

Atomium is a building completed by the World Fair in 1958. Ever since then it has been a symbol of Brussels and attracts thousands of tourists every day.

Атомиум это строение, созданное к мировой ярмарке 1958-го года. С тех пор оно так и стоит, и сейчас является одним из мест посещения Брюсселя.



There is something in every one of these big silver balls, and the one on the very top (with a flag) has a restaurant and an observation deck. Let's get up there. The elevator may look old, but the Atomium has just been remodeled a couple of years ago.

В каждый из этих больших шаров можно зайти внутрь. В самом верхнем из них (там где флаг) находится ресторан и обзорная платформа. Пройдем наверх. Можно подумать что лифт за пятьдесят лет немного устарел, но все строение было полностью обновлено несколько лет назад.

It's about 300 feet up in the air.

Высота почти 100 метров.

Look, Mini-Europe!

О, Мини-Европа


Tokyo is that way. Almost 6000 miles.

Токио там. Почти 10 тысяч километров.


Solar energy is a big deal in Europe. It is especially obvious from the higher ground.

Солнечная энергия популярна в Европе. Особенно это заметно свысока.

The hardest part about visiting mini-Europe and Atomium is choosing from one of the good places to eat located just here.

После посещения мини-Европы и Атомиума можно заморить червячка в одном из многочисленных ресторанов расположенных тут же.
