Hollywood Bowl
Hollywood Bowl
#About the Wonderful Acoustic Shell

About 17,000 seats await you at the famous Hollywood Bowl Amphitheater, which hosts hundreds of concerts and diverse music events each year and serves as the home of the Hollywood Bowl and the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra.

Over the years, many famous artists have appeared here, such as The Beatles, Frank Sinatra, The Doors, Elton John and many others.

The amphitheater was built in 1922 and to this day it looks more or less the same. It is built on the hills of Hollywood, not far above which stands the famous Hollywood sign. The shell that was built on the stage was built by architect Lloyd Wright. Although it was a great acoustic success, the audience did not like it, especially because it looked too modern for its environment.

In 1929 the dome, which became the symbol of the place, was built in the form of a large white hemisphere. When sounds like the movements of cars and airplanes increased over the years and hindered performances there, great efforts were made to improve the acoustics of the dome. In 2004, the new and larger dome that you see today was also presented. Inside it is a large ring on which the lighting and amplification equipment are installed for performances and television cameras. In addition, the rear wall that "breaks" the shape of the ball has been added to the dome over the years.
Dodger Stadium
Dodger Stadium
#About the Baseball Stadium of Los Angeles

The Dodger Stadium, opened in 1962, serves the Los Angeles Dodgers Group. It was built in less than three years and the cost of its construction, which was financed by private sources, totaled $23 million. In fact, it is one of the most famous stadiums in the US and worldwide and the largest in the American MLB League.

A lot of important and decisive games have taken place here - from famous boxing matches to football games, performances and the baseball games for the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics.


#History of the Stadium's Construction

In the mid-1950's, the president of the Brooklyn Dodgers group, Walter O'Malley, tried to build a stadium in Brooklyn's New York district but could not reach an agreement with city officials to buy the land. In the end, the deal with the city of Los Angeles took place.

The land was purchased from the owners and residents of Los Angeles by the city of Los Angeles, which planned to develop a public housing project here, including two dozen 13-story buildings and more than 160 two-story homes. This is in addition to the college and playgrounds and schools that were rebuilt.

Before the start of construction of the housing project the political climate changed drastically. This happened after Norris Paulson was elected mayor of Los Angeles in 1953. After his election, public housing proposals and projects such as "Ellisian Park Heights" lost most of their support. After lengthy negotiations, the city sold the land in question at a price significantly lower than the original price. The land was purchased with a commitment that it would be used for a public purpose - building a stadium for the city, which was Dodger Stadium.
La Brea Tar Pits
La Brea Tar Pits and Museum
#Enter the World of Ancient Animals

The La Brea Tar Pits and Museum, both fascinating and stunning in their history, are surrounded by gardens and paths and are in the heart of the bustling city.

This is one of the most special places in the world. The famous tar pits of Los Angeles have existed there for tens of thousands of years. Over the years, mammoths and other animals that lived about 11,000 years ago have been caught in the wild Los Angeles area of ​​those days. In the pits fossils were created, from which we learned quite a bit about what happened here in the past. Over 3,000,000 fossils and artifacts are displayed or stored in the museum, for research purposes and for visitors.

The burning pits of the tar, from which the scientists of the place annually remove more and more remnants of ancient animals, teach about the life that existed here tens of thousands of years ago. The tar is usually covered with dust, leaves or water.

You can see the work of the scientists and work on the site, tour the active sites in the area, experience a variety of activities at the museum, watch the active tar pits and explore the pleasant gardens with seating areas and ancient animal statues.

Mammoths, tigers, giant lizards - remains of hundreds of ancient animals that sank millions of years ago in tar and since the 18th-century scientists have been working hard to expose to the public. In the exhibition halls you can also see fossils and skeletons and the exhibits here are updated regularly.

Then all the great Hollywood filmmakers come here and present themselves to dozens of cameras and photographers, interested in every detail, including personal or at least gossip.

The rest of the year it serves as a hall for performances, official ceremonies, concerts, reality shows, "America's Got Talent" and dance performances. It is located in Hollywood in the Highland entertainment complex on Hollywood Boulevard and North Highland Avenue.

In its external design, this theater is misleading. Although it was designed and built at the beginning of the 21st century, its façade is much more typical of the architecture of the 1920's and the 20th century.

The interior design of the theater includes decorated columns displaying the names of the films entitled "Best Films." There are quite a few places for future winners of this prize.

On other evenings, by the way, it is hard to recognize that here is the sparkling ceremony for the entire world to see.
