Bird eye view grenoble and Bastille

One of the beautiful sunny warm days of our stay in Grenoble, on the advice of friends, I decided to visit the local landmark – The fortress called Bastille (Bastille). I must admit that I knew nothing about her and went there by for the most part, because I wanted to rise on the teleferike (residents capaciously styled it “eggs”) and look at the panorama of the city with bird’s eye view. Generally, these balls are spoken of as the main attraction of Grenoble, no matter how portrayed, usually they are always in the photo. But we were soon it’s interesting to just “fly” over the river and ride the cable car ski lift in your favorite mountains.

So I went to the embankment Stefan-Jay (Quai Stephane Jay) River Isere, from where that telefherique (telepherique) starts. There was almost no queue, I bought a ticket without any problems, but stay up still had to. Like the smartest, thought the best view will be from the last, so to speak, eggs – that is, booths funicular, so politely began to let everyone in front of him. But it was not immediately possible to fulfill our plans, since first facing me a couple decided to do the same, and the next time the Arab the family loaded into the last booth I wanted, standing in wrong place in front of me.

But with a sinking heart, I sit in the arrived egg (I know It sounds hilarious) and we slowly begin to rise up, crossing the river below him. In vain I kept on making a camera – dull glass of the ball did not allow to make any decent Photo. So I just sat and looked around, good, full glass cabin allows it.

Subtracted on the Internet that the speed of the funicular in Grenoble 6 meters per second, although it seemed to me that at some moments he slowed down, and in some, on the contrary, accelerated. By the way how say some sources, was built by telefrey Grenoble in 1934 and became the first cable car in Europe.

And so I arrived at the main attraction of Grenoble and passed on the first viewing platform. Grenoble is beautiful extraordinary! WITH the wide river Isere, the artery passing through the city, with all its streets, with a clear and beautiful geometry of the quarters, and stunning the mountains around the city! Impossible to stop looking!

Pohah and pohov, done a bunch of photos on this lookout, I went to the other, which is located on the opposite side of the arriving cabins funicular. Here I was met by the snowy peaks of the Franzuz Alps, and below was the outskirts of Grenoble. On this site me very pleased with the colorful stands with different historical information. And if you are too lazy to read it all, you can click on the button anglais and listen to all the same in English (well, or on francais and do the same in french).

Listening to historical information was complicated by the fact that all the children falling on this viewing platform, considered their it is obligatory to press on all buttons of all 6 or 8 stands for a long time, what was the reason for such a multi-lingual voice that even it was sometimes difficult to talk. But the very idea with these I really liked the stands. They even special entrances made, apparently, to be more convenient for people with disabilities.
