Our winners today 🍍


🥇 Antibes France by @leaky20

For me, Antibes was a lot like Saint Tropez only much larger and perhaps a little less charming. But then it's hard for larger touristy cities to maintain their charm in the same way as those that are smaller and little more off the beaten path.

🥈 St. Michael's Castle and Mikhaylovsky Garden by @tatdt

The bronze equestrian monument to Emperor Peter the Great is in front of St. Michael's Castle, the great sculptor Bartolomeo Carlo Rastrelli was the author of this monument. This monument is very famous, it is mentioned in all travel guides. In the people this monument is also popular, and the maximum attention is attracted by two bas-reliefs decorating the sides of the stone pedestal. It is believed that some figures on these bas-reliefs have the special ability to help in various troubles of life. According to the belief, it is necessary to touch certain details (hand, boot, etc.). These details are polished by many touches and shine brightly.

🥉 Ponte Vecchio Bridge, Florence Italy - A beautiful renaissance bridge lined with jewelry shops, built around 1345 by @hoosie

The bridge is quite centrally located, and because of the shops and its beauty, it attracts quite a crowd. It was built way back in the 14th century after a flood in 1345 washed away the previous bridge. Thats nearly 700 years ago !!!!
