After moving to Sydney, the first thing that I did was go and see the two most iconic structures in Sydney. It was the first weekend being here and my brother and I had decided to go to the city and have a look around. We ended up heading towards the Opera House.
The view right outside the Opera House was absolutely breathtaking. We spent some time sitting on the steps of the Opera House, walking around the building and later on went on to grab some hot chocolate! It was so hot outside, but to be honest I would never give up on some delicious hot chocolate. I mean would you?
So moving on to these structures, I am going to add in a little about the history of these structures. The Sydney Opera House opened its doors in October of 1973. It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the most visited places in Sydney. The building was designed by a Danish architect, Jørn Utzon. It comprises of various performing venues and its distinctive design makes it one of the famous buildings in the world. You can also take inside tours of the Opera House and it just costs approximately AUD $39. I still have to do that and I am keeping it on the list of things I have yet to do here.
The next structure is the Sydney Harbour Bridge. Opened in 1932, this bridge was designed by a British firm. It is the sixth longest spanning arch bridge in the world. The view of the bridge, the harbor and the Sydney opera house definitely creates an iconic image of Sydney. You can also climb the Sydney harbor bridge or choose to take a cruise along the harbour to witness the spectacular views. Climbing the Harbour Bridge is definitely on my bucket list!
There is always so much history in a place. The architecture represent so much of the culture of a city or country. This is one reason why I spend most of my weekends trying to explore this city. There is so much to see and so many places to go to.
I hope you all have an amazing weekend and Happy Easter!
