Bermuda islands have been discovered by a Spanish explorer Juan Bermudez. Briti sh admiral. The people, left by Somers in the island, must have inspired Shakespeare to write the play 'Tempest'. These islands, that once were known only due to cedar forests, have become a large resort area, known for its coral reefs, beautiful pink sand beaches, gardens, quiet coves and clear water.

The capital, the largest city and the commercial center of the picturesque Bermuda is Hamilton. It is also the place of the local government and commercial institutions of the country. Named after Henry Hamilton, the Governor of Bermuda, the city began its development after it became a new port for the ships on the route between the coast of the New World and Europe. Now it is a small town with the population of 15 thousand people, which is constantly clogged with tourists.

The city center is located along the harbor and is marked by old Victorian buildings, overhanging verandahs, limestone fences, apricot orchards and the blue sky. Most of the city’s interesting places can be walked to on foot, but walking is not the best way to travel here because the roads and the streets of the old quarters are quite narrow and seldom equipped with sidewalks.

The main attractions include Hamilton's neo-Gothic cathedral Bridge-Holy-Trinity, the building of the Cabinet, the House of Assembly and the pentagonal Fort Hamilton. The latter is an impressive building, situated on a hilltop with magnificent views of the harbor of Hamilton and beautiful gardens.

One more cultural center of the city is the Bermuda National Gallery, whose exhibition includes the works of the local artists and the masterpieces executed by such European masters of the 17th-19th centuries as Thomas Gainsborough and Joshua Reynolds. A rather good art collection is stored in Desmond Fountain Gallery on Front Street. Behind the building of the Municipality, there is Victoria Park, created in honor of Queen Victoria. Now the park is a favorite destination for a variety of musical performances. Nearby is the marina of the Royal Bermuda Yacht Club.

Not far from here, one will find the entrance to the famous Crystal Caves. The place is also known for a large subterranean lake with crystal-clear water. It is the largest underground lake in Bermuda. Around the capital, there are also many interesting places. One of them is the widely known reserve Blue Hole Park, and the Bermuda Botanical Gardens with more than a thousand varieties of plants.

St. George is one of the oldest capitals of the British colonies and one of the most colorful cities in the New World. In December 2000, St. George was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Its old quarters, narrow winding streets and historic buildings attract the attention of thousands of tourists from around the world. The main attractions of the city belong to the middle of the 18th century. The heart of the city is Royal Square, the Town Hall, and the State House Residence. The locals call it 'Buckingham'. The residence is considered one of the oldest British buildings in the New World. Another sight in the city is St. Peters Church. The city is rich in museums, such as the Historical Museum and the St. George Tucker House Museum with a magnificent collection of silver, china and antique furniture.
