Buckingham Palace/Букингемский дворец

Here it is:

Вот такой вот он:

And here is one of the famous guards. The guards themselves are not famous, but their uniforms, mostly tall hats, are the source of attention.

А вот те самые знаменитые охранники замка. Сами охранники ничем не знамениты, но их форма, а в особенности высокая шапка, притягивает внимание.

The dude went for a little walk to stretch his legs.

Чувак решил размяться.
The gates.

Ворота. Не новые.




The palace square.

Вид на дворцовую площадь.

And this is what the palace looks like from the garden side. The palace is open for visits two months out of the year and anyone can come inside and feel like any other person who came to see the Royals. It's very pretty on the inside, lots of pictures and beautiful interiors, but no photographs are allowed.

А вот так дворец выглядит с внутренней стороны, со стороны сада. Дворец открыт для посещения два месяца в году, так что любой может зайти и побыть на месте любых других людей кто приходит посетить членов королевской семьи. Внутри очень красиво, интерьер, картины, но нельзя фотографировать.


Going further through the garden, here is a peek at the palace.

Вид на кусочек замка из глубины сада.

And here are some more guards. They don't exactly look as the palace guards, and these are on horses, and they are not exactly going to the palace. Nevertheless, they are horse-back riding in the middle of the busy city, holding the traffic. There must be a reason...

А вот еще какие-то охранники. Немножко другие, но на лошадях, и едут не совсем в замок. Но вот так, на лошадях посреди города, задерживая движение. Чопорно и по-английски, в-общем.
