Peter and Paul Cathedral

Built on Zayachy Island, between 1712 and 1733, the cathedral’s bell tower is the world’s tallest Orthodox bell tower. It also acts as a lightning rod protecting the cathedral.

The cathedral houses the remains of most of the Russian emperors and empresses from Peter the Great to Nicholas II; including Catherine the Great, Empress of Russia for 34 years.

A religious site and place of pilgrimage, Bodh Gaya (in Bihar State) is where Gautama Buddha is said to have obtained enlightenment; after meditating under the Bodhi tree, for 49 days.

For Buddhists, Bodh Gaya is the most important of the main four pilgrimage sites related to the life of Gautama Buddha; something akin to Mecca for Muslims.

Champagne Sunset in Darwin

What better way to enjoy nature’s lightshow than clinking a glass of sparkly with the one you love.

The bubbles rise as the sun sets and the colour of romance reflects in the loving couple’s eyes.

Sunsets in Darwin are big business; from sunset cruises to the food and craft Sunset Market at Mindil Beach.
