Bike parking built underwater, timelapsed video of the incredible work

We are in Amsterdam. The bicycle capital of Europe par excellence. Statistics speak of 900,000 bicycles for a population of 882,000. And therein arises the difficulty of parking one's bicycle. Especially in the most congested places like stations. And so the city of Amsterdam wanted to make it even easier for cyclists and built in less than 3 years a bicycle parking lot near the central station, which is known to be located on 3 artificial islands. How, then, to gain space? By building the mammoth parking lot under the waters of the Amstel river that cuts through the capital of the Netherlands. The structure, built 9 meters below the water level, can accommodate more than 7 thousand bicycles and is connected via a tunnel directly with the station.

Zoolatry is the religious cult that regards animals as manifestations of divinity, characteristic of ancient and primitive religions.

The greatest empires in history

What was the largest empire on earth? The largest domain that has ever occupied the globe? We have all, at one time or another, asked ourselves this question. First of all, it should be made clear that to call by the term "empire" any large state is a serious mistake. An empire (from the Latin imperium, "military power," "coercive power") is conventionally an entity consisting of an extended set of territories and/or peoples who are diverse (in language, religion, origin, customs and traditions), sometimes far apart, subject to a single authority, normally (but not necessarily) represented by the physical person of the emperor. Every true empire is underpinned by an imperial ideology that conditions every single aspect of it. The empire, therefore, is by its nature a spiritual structure, directed toward universal domination.

9 strangest and most peculiar lakes in the world

Some of the lakes are really special, such as the Dead Sea (a very salty lake). However, there are also some rather bizarre lakes that we are sure you have hardly ever heard of but that, if you ever find yourself in those parts, are worth exploring. Here are the 9 craziest lakes in the world. Nature is capable of creating spectacles that are simply magnificent: for example, it has managed to shape some lakes in such a way as to give them truly distinctive shapes. Such is the case with the striking lake Nackern, located in the Swedish region of Östergötland, a short distance from the city of Linköping. When viewed from above, it truly looks like a heart nestled among lush forests.

The story of Molly Malone, the Dublin fishwife.

For those who have actually visited Dublin in their lifetime, the story of Molly Malone will certainly not be new. A very famous Irish folk song since the 17th century, it tells the story of a fishwife (whose historical existence is uncertain) who alternated her day job with that of a prostitute at night. She died prematurely, and a statue was erected to remember her in the very capital city. Her popularity especially in Ireland is enormous, but many tourists also seek her out to kiss a part of her body, a well-wishing action according to popular superstition. Made famous by Dubliners, her bitter end is known all over the world.
