Walk through the night ancient city in Jordan
• the night ancient city Walk to Jordan
Petra - an ancient Nabatean city, abandoned in the Arabian mountains for centuries, but Europeans discovered two centuries ago. Now it is the main tourist attraction of Jordan, a member of the list of "new 7 wonders of the world." Kilometer narrow canyon leading to the most famous buildings of Petra - the Treasury. In the evenings for tourists this place is illuminated by thousands of torches and becomes incredibly beautiful.
I offer photo essay with panoramic shots
Night tour for tourists begins an hour after sunset, at the entrance to Petra. In the photo the distance - lights of Wadi Musa, the journey begins from there.
The road to the Treasury lit by paper lanterns, in which - the candles, put on a pile of sand.
The road runs through a narrow gorge, beautifully lit full moon.
The height of the rocks - 60 meters, in some places, dark and narrow, the sound echoing steps given on many meters
After 15 minutes of the entrance to the canyon - we're almost at the Treasury.
While the tourists came, I took a few shots at the site from the Treasury.
Presentation begins. It is, by modern standards, modest. The Bedouins, accompanying herself with old instruments, tell stories from the lives of their ancestors.
Tourists from all over the world, some drink Bedouin tea, included in the program of the show.
At the end of the performance leading invites all to get the camera and take a picture signal simultaneously. For a moment, Peter is illuminated by hundreds of lights
For me, the magic of the evening picture of Petra - one of the best memories of the ancient city
