The Tower of Pisa, Pisa, Italy/Пизанская башня

Let's go see the tower of Pisa.

Поедем глянем Пизанскую башню.


The tower of Pisa is located on the Piazza dei Miracoli (which translates as "Square of Miracles" from Italian) in the city of Pisa, Tuscany, Italy. Besides the tower, there is also the Pisa Cathedral, the Pisa Baptistry, and the Camposanto cemetery. On the picture below the Baptistry is on the left, the Cathedral is in the middle, and the tower is peeking from behind the Cathedral.

Пизанская башня находится на Пьяцца деи Мираколи ("площадь чудес"), в городе Пиза, что находится в Италии. Кроме башни, на площади еще находится Пизанский собор, Баптистерий, и кладбище Кампо-Санто. На фотографии ниже Баптистерий находится слева, собор в центре, башня выглядывает из-за собора.

The Cathedral is closer, so let's go inside it first. The tickets were free, the visitors needed to get them in an office further down the path to its left.

Собор ближе, поэтому зайдем сюда сначала. Кстати, в собор надо было брать билет. Но он был почему-то бесплатный. Касса находится в здании слева за собором.

This is what inside the Cathedral looks like.

Вид внутри собора.


Now let's go see the leaning tower. Not so leaning from this angle. Let's try another side.

Теперь можно и посмотреть на наклоненную башню. С этого угла вроде не особо наклоненная. Обойдем с другой стороны.
Oh, now it's more obvious.

А, ну да, теперь видно.

One more picture and let's go.

Еще одна фотография и поехали дальше.
