The Sistine Chapel is a chapel in the Apostolic Palace, the official residence of the Pope, in Vatican City. Originally known as the Cappella Magna, the chapel takes its name from Pope Sixtus IV, who restored it between 1477 and 1480. Since that time, the chapel has served as a place of both religious and functionary papal activity. Today it is the site of the Papal conclave, the process by which a new pope is selected. The fame of the Sistine Chapel lies mainly in the frescos that decorate the interior, and most particularly the Sistine Chapel ceiling and The Last Judgment by Michelangelo.
Few years ago I visited Karlovy Vary, I felt like I was in the most wonderful place in the world. This is a city that is situated in the valley of the river Teplá.
The healing water, the nature and the ancient architecture - these are the miracles that make the Czech town of Karlovy Vary one of the most attractive resorts in the world and already six centuries reveals its possibilities of recovery.
A legend of its origin says that a running from hunters deer took the German Emperor and Czech King Charles IV to the hot springs. He was amazed by this nature’s miracle and called the best chemists to determine the composition of the water. Then the king gave to the small village then called Vary (boiling) the privileges of the royal city and its name. So 1358 is considered to be the beginning of the creation of Karlovy Vary.
Udumbara flowers are part of Buddhist legend, and are said to only flower once every 3,000 years. They are considered an “auspicious sign,” particularly in cases where they bloom somewhere significant. Udumbara flowers are most often observed in rather ordinary circumstances, as in 2007 when they were spotted on an oleander bush. But then you have the rare cases, as in 2005 when ten of them were found attached to a gold Bodhisattva statue, when they seem somehow more significant. According to Buddhist scripture, Udumbara flowers indicate “Chakravartin (“He who turns the Wheel”) descending into the world.” They are considered celestial, fragile, delicate, and magical.
