There are places on earth that are famous for their ability to fulfill our desires. Old legends and traditions tell us about this. And we believe them! And the point is not at all in superstition, but in the fact that sometimes we all just need to believe in magical places, in the healing power of springs, in good old magic …
So, before you - 7 magical places of our planet, capable of fulfilling the most cherished dreams.
Charles Bridge in Prague
The bridge over the Vltava is one of the oldest and most beautiful in the world. This is a truly magical place!
More than 600 years ago, or rather on July 9, 1357 at 5 hours 31 minutes, King Charles IV laid the first stone here. He did this on the advice of the court astrologer, so that the mystical figure 1-3-5-7-9-7-5-3-1 was formed.
And to this day, the townspeople and guests of Prague believe that all the wishes made on the Charles Bridge will definitely come true!
How to make a wish: one must put one hand on the statue of Jan Nepomuk, and the other on the dog on the reliefs of the bridge. Or touch the five-star cross on the marble board. These places are easy to recognize as they have been polished with many hands.
Zero meridian in London
The huge Royal Park in Greenwich was once the hunting grounds of the royal family. This is a beautiful green recreation area in southeast London, home to the famous Sir Christopher Wren Observatory. It is its territory that is crossed by the same Zero Meridian, which divides the Earth into two hemispheres - East and West. All time zones of the planet begin to count down here.
The meridian is painted with shiny paint. And since such places usually have a strong energy, it is considered a good omen to stand on it.
How to make a wish: to do this, you need to stand so that one leg is in the Eastern Hemisphere, and the other is in the Western Hemisphere. Another option is to stand with both feet on the meridian line and make a wish.
Trevi Fountain in Rome
The Trevi Fountain is one of the most popular and beautiful in Rome. This huge sculptural water composition occupies an entire area.
The fountain is especially beautiful at night, when the water is illuminated by lamps and the images of Neptune and sea inhabitants seem to come to life … Then you involuntarily begin to believe in a fairy tale and remember the legend about three coins that must be thrown into the water to fulfill your wishes!
How to make a wish: to return to Rome again, throw one coin into the fountain. To meet a romantic Italian - two coins. And to marry (apparently, to the same Italian) - three coins.
Seven springs of Rhodes
The Seven Springs Nature Reserve is located near the town of Lindos on the island of Rhodes. There, straight from the ground, 7 water jets are beating, which merge into one stream flowing through a dark 200-meter tunnel.
They say that if you walk barefoot on icy water all this way, you can be cleansed of all earthly sins! And at the end of this difficult test, you will see a stunning azure lake. Here you can enjoy the beautiful nature and see peacocks walking along the coast.
How to make a wish: just do it - take off your shoes and walk through the tunnel with the ice stream. And believe that from now on all your sins are forgiven!
Blarney Castle in Ireland
The famous medieval fortress in Ireland is very popular among tourists - after all, it fulfills any desires!
The ancient wall of the fortress is embedded with the "stone of eloquence", or the magic stone of Blarney, kissing which you can instantly become a skilled orator. And in the modern interpretation - quickly learn English. True, the stone is located at a height of several tens of meters, so you will have to try to get to it.
And next to the fortress there is a "fabulous" house Blarney House, next to which there is a garden of wonders Rock Close. It is in this garden that the cherished "witch's staircase" is located. According to legend, the witch promised to fulfill any wishes of the guests of the castle in exchange for fire from their hearth …
How to make a wish: first, kiss the "stone of eloquence." And secondly, to walk up the "witch's ladder" with your eyes closed to fulfill your cherished desires.
Western Wall in Jerusalem
The largest shrine for all Jews is a half-kilometer-long wall made of powerful stones. This structure has remained on the holy land of Jerusalem since the time of Herod the Great.
And today not only devout Jews, but also people of various religions come to the Wailing Wall to pray and ask for the most intimate. They do this with the help of notes with desires, which then necessarily come true.
An important custom - after prayer, you need to leave the Wall only by turning your face to it!
How to make a wish: write about your dream or wish on a piece of paper, and then shove it between the stones of the Wall.
House of the Virgin Mary in Ephesus
A few kilometers from the ancient city of Ephesus (Turkey) there is a valuable place for many Christians at Marieman - the house of Mary. According to legend, the mother of Jesus Christ spent the last years of her life here, after which her Assumption took place, i.e. transition to another world.
This place is recognized as a saint by the Catholic Church, and every year thousands of pilgrims come here on August 15 for a service in honor of the Mother of God.
How to make a wish: there is a chapel on the territory, and a healing spring beats near it. Nearby there is a wall of wishes, where you can tie a ribbon to the lattice and make a wish.
