Time Traveling at Historic Neighborhoods Around the World




Comments  (0)

Apr 22, 2013 —  As humanity seemingly changes at a faster rate than ever before, it can be easy to lose sight of history. But in major cities throughout the world, entire neighborhoods serve as living museums of the past. With centuries-old pubs, storied city centers, and iconic monuments, spending a day in one of these historic spots can be like traveling back in time.

In Boston’s North End, history hounds chase the ghosts of the Founding Fathers on the Freedom Trail. Along the way, culture buffs stop by the roots of the American Revolution at places like the Paul Revere House, Old North Church, and old watering holes where community leaders helped plot their rebellion against the British Empire.

Over in Central London, modern England and old Britannia collide at famous public spaces like Trafalgar Square, Piccadilly Circus, and Leicester Square. And across the Channel in Berlin, Mitte attracts political junkies seeking to snap a shot of Checkpoint Charlie as a reminder of the Cold War.

From the birthplace of the United States to massive European monuments, global hotspots continue to tell tales of antiquity. So brush up on your favorite stories of yesteryear and get ready to immerse yourself in the past at some of the most historic neighborhoods in the world.
