Sydney (Сидней, крупнейший город Австралии)

Sydney is the gateway to Australia. It’s one of the most attractive cities in the world and it was voted the Number One Convention City in the Asia Pacific Region for 2000. But no introduction to Sydney would be complete without paying tribute to one of the world’s great harbours.

Sydney Harbour is the heart and soul of the city. It provides spectacular views, ferry transportation and a variety of recreation options to the city’s four million residents. Its banks are home to the iconic structures of the Opera House and Harbour Bridge. Each of the areas along its 20-kilometre stretch offers a different perspective on this major port. Darling Harbour is flash and tourist-friendly, the North Shore suburbs are refined and trendy, and the various Sydney Harbour National Park areas provide a welcome break from the hustle and bustle of the city. The best way to experience Sydney Harbour is from one of the many cruises departing from Circular Quay.

Sydney is a major centre of culture and the arts, and a mecca for world class sport and entertainment. There is fabulous shopping, fine dining, natural beauty and the friendliest people in the world.

Sydneysiders always knew they lived in one of the world’s great cities, but it wasn’t until the 2000 Olympics that the rest of the world started to agree with this fact. Since the Games, Sydney hits consolidated its position as one of the world’s most enchanting cities. Hosting the 2000 Olympic Games has been a catalyst to ;i range of new and exciting venues as well as innovative and unique products for Sydney.

It might seem surprising that Sydney is not Australia’s capital. The creation of Canberra in 1927 has not affected the view of many Sydneysiders that their city remains the true capital of Australia, and certainly in many ways it feels like it. The city has a tangible sense of history: the old stone walls and well-worn steps in the backstreets around The Rocks are an evocative reminder that Sydney has more than two hundred years of white history behind it.

Just imagine a place of distinctive sights and sounds and a city with spirit. It is a place in a legendary land that combines the best the world has to offer and that place is Sydney.
