CHESTER – A touch of Roman Empire


by Ada@

EN: Let’s go to a beautiful, unique, and historical city …Chester!!!!

Chester, a charismatic city, has the most complete city walls, the oldest racecourse, and the largest Roman Amphitheater in Britain, plus a 1000-year-old cathedral and 700-year-old unique shopping rows. Chester is also home to the UK’s number one zoo!!

So are you curious???

To have some fun, let’s go to the Chester Zoo! With over 20.000 animals to discover, I think you will not know where to start! It was the same for me, as a tip from me, you should visit it during the summertime just because you will be able to explore all the animal’s habitats and the gardens! Some animals are hiding inside during the wintertime, and the gardens don’t have that wow factor:D!

RO: Haideti sa mergem intr-un oras frumos, unic si istoric…Chester!!!

Ce oras carismatic este Chester-ul care are aproape cele mai complete ziduri de protectie ale vechiului oras, cel mai vechi hipodrom si cel mai mare amfiteatru Roman din Marea Britanie, in plus o catedrala veche de 1000 de ani si stradute unice vechi de peste 700 de ani. Chester este casa pentru gradina zoologica numarul unu din UK!!!

Sunteti curiosi???

Ca sa ne distram un pic haideti la gradina zoologica !!!! Cu peste 20.000 de animale de descoperit ma gandesc, ca nici nu ai stii de unde sa incepi!!! Eu am facut la fel, dar ca un sfat, ar trebuii sa o vizitati in timpul verii deoarece puteti explora toate habitaturile animalelor si gradinile!!! In timpul iernii cateva din animale erau ascunse si gradinile nu au acel wooow factor:D!

EN: Chester was founded as a “castrum” or Roman fort with the name Deva Victrix in the Emperor Vespasian reign in 79 AD. One of the main army camps in Roman Britain, Deva, later became a major civilian settlement. You can feel like a Roman walking on the city walls or try the Roman Tours with a ‘real roman’ using authentic clothing and equipment. Their soldiers brave the climate to bring you an informative, educational, and interactive experience suitable for any group or age range.

RO: Chester a fost fondat ca un “castru” sau fort roman cu numele Deva Victrix în timpul domniei imparatului Vespasian in anul 79 AD. Una dintre principalele lagare de armata Romane din Marea Britanie, Deva a devenit ulterior o asezare civila majora. Poti sa te simti ca un Roman mergand pe zidurile romane ale orasului sau poti incerca turul Roman cu un “adevarat roman” care foloseste haine si echipament autentic, acesti soldati curajosi o sa va ofere informatii, intr-o experienta educativa si interactiva potrivite pentru orice interval de varsta.

EN: The Rows are unique in Britain. They consist of buildings with shops or dwellings on the lowest two stories. The shops or dwellings on the ground floor are often lower than the street and are entered by steps, which sometimes lead to a crypt-like vault. Those on the first floor are entered behind a continuous walkway, often with a sloping shelf between the walkway and the railings overlooking the street. Much of the architecture of central Chester looks medieval, and some of it is, but by far the greatest part of it, including most of the black-and-white buildings, is Victorian, a result of what Pevsner termed the “black-and-white revival.”

RO: Aleile sunt unice in Marea Britanie. Ele constau in cladiri cu magazine sau locuinte la primele doua etaje. Magazinele sau locuinte la parter, sunt de multe ori la un nivel mai jos decat strada. O mare parte a arhitecturii centrale din Chester este medievala, insa de departe cea mai mare parte a acesteia, inclusiv cele mai multe cladiri alb-negru, este victoriana, un rezultat a ceea ce Pevsner la numit “negru-alb renastere “.
