During the Bronze Age, this beautiful island was the home to the Minoan civilization, which is considered to be the first advanced European civilization, so there are also many historical attractions in Crete. Besides Minoan ruins, visitors can also still see the remains of Ancient Greece, the Venetian era, and the Ottoman period scattered around this island today.

    12 Most Beautiful Canyons of the World

    Last updated on April 19, 2012 in Landscapes, World3 Comments

    Canyons or gorges are one of nature’s natural wonders carved out over eons by fast moving rivers. Most canyons were formed by a process of long-time erosion from a plateau level. The cliffs form because harder rock that are resistant to erosion and weathering remain exposed on the valley walls. Canyons offer some of the most dramatic landscapes on earth (and even in the solar system), not only for the sheer size but also for the beauty that often lie hidden beneath the ground.

Written by touropia on December 13, 2010 in Landscapes, World2 Comments

Deep inside Venezuela’s jungle lie isolated islands of table top mountains, called tepuis. The table top mountains are considered some of the oldest geological formations on Earth, dating back to some two billion years ago. As they are completely isolated from the ground, these ”islands above the rainforest” have a large number of unique plants and animals not found anywhere else in the world. Table top mountains also exist in other parts of the world where they are called mesa, tuya, butte, amba or simply table mountain.
