#About the Getty Museum

The Getty Museum is one of the city's most impressive museums. The museum opened in 1997 and bears the name of philanthropist Paul Getty, who loved art and wanted to allow the public to enjoy and experience the pleasure of it. It is located on a mountain peak, which can only be reached by trains carrying visitors from the bottom of the hill.

The Getty Museum opened in 1974 in a house known today as "Getty Villa" and is still a museum in its own right.

Getty was one of the richest Americans and established quite a few important institutions, including the Research Institute and the Conservation Center and the Foundation in his honor. In his lifetime he collected many diverse items, including antiques and paintings, photographs, sculptures and prints that are still exhibited in the museum. In 1982, after receiving $1.2 billion from the Getty Heritage, the place became the richest museum in the world.

The collection is said to be "one of the finest collections and certainly the most important of those that were privately owned." You can still see it in the museum.


#The Structure of the Museum and its Surroundings

#About the World Famous Amusement Park

The Disneyland of Los Angeles opened in 1955 and is, just like Disneylands in other countries, home to the Walt Disney cartoon characters. Here you will not only see the characters' walking and taking pictures with children, but a whole show full of stunts and advanced technology. One of the most beautiful shows here is the "It's a Small World" ride - be sure do not miss it. The park has dozens of rides, castles, performances, shopping, parades and hours of pure pleasure.

The whole complex is actually built in the shape of a star, so you can easily explore it and go to different parts of the park: Adventureland, the land of the Wild West, the land of legends, Tomorrowland, and more.

The number of visitors who arrived here today exceeds 650 million.


#History of the Park

Disneyland Park where you stand now was actually the first one built in 1955.

The idea of ​​the park was founded by Walt Disney, who was then the owner of one of the most successful film companies in Hollywood. At the time, he visited various theme parks in the 1930's and 1940's. He had the desire to build an amusement park for the whole family, which would provide a sense of a traveling circus, without the negative elements, which would provide both adults and children with pleasure. It was a time when quite a few people visited his studios and were eager to meet the characters who were drawn from the famous films.

So the initial idea was to open the park near the Walt Disney Studios in Burbank, so that visitors could be photographed with the statues of characters from movies. After he began to think about the subject in depth, he realized that the space offered to him was too small to implement what he imagined, especially because he expected the demand for the park to be very large.

In 1953 he bought the territories that are here, in Los Angeles and opened it to the general public two years later. The cost of its construction was $17 million for the park's initial phase.

By the way, as expected, the opening day of the park did not register as a spectacular success. Although the event was closed to guests only, many people forged invitations and entered anyway. The lines were long and hard. It was a very hot day, and due to the strike by all the plumbers in the area, the weather-dried faucets could not be repaired. Beyond that, there was still wet tar on the sidewalks, causing some of the visitors to get stuck in them.

The criticism that was published the next day was severe and Disney was forced to make a new opening day in order to allow journalists to enjoy the experience, and correct the harsh criticism.

In 2012 the family was declared as Hollywood heroes by the Hollywood Trade Commerce, for the generous support and contribution to the Hollywood community.

The observatory was built in Griffith Park by Colonel and astronomy enthusiast, Griffith Jenkins Griffith. His dream was to make the stars reachable for everyone, and not only scientists. This is the reason the entrance to the observatory is free, and has been this way since its establishment in 1935. Griffith's donation money ensure that the entire park around the observation would be named after him. About 10 years ago, the building was renovated at a cost of about $35 million.

In 2006, after renovations that cost about $93 million that lasted 4 years, the observatory was re-opened, with a sophisticated planetarium and small theater, a Foucault pendulum, and fantastic telescope, theater, and more. In the galleries there are scientific exhibits that help understand the sky, solar system, and earth.

In the great musical "La La Land," the famous observatory was one of the most prominent and beautiful locations for the shootings, where the romantic couple spent time. It has been commemorated in many movies, and it even has a monument for the actor James Dean, who filmed here a famous knife fight scene in his famous movie, "Rebel Without a Cause." Besides looking at the sky and stars, the observatory is a great place to look over the Hollywood Sign, as well as a viewpoint for all of Los Angeles.

Hollywood Walk of Fame
#About the Place Where you Can See all the Stars

The Hollywood Walk of Fame is one of the places to visit in Los Angeles. It is located between Hollywood Avenue and Wayne Street in California. The boulevard was created by the artist Oliver Weismuller, whose goal was to upgrade Hollywood a little.

The names of over 2,500 entertainment artists are here, and all have been honored for the significant contribution they have made to the entertainment industry. Each star has a pink mosaic with a bronze frame. Inside is the name of the winner and underneath it one of the five symbols symbolizing in what way they contributed to the entertainment industry: film, television, music, radio or theater.

Each year, potential stars are announced on May 31. The Star Avenue Council holds the annual meeting in June to select the people that will receive a star the following year. These council members, by the way, are not known to the public, and this is also the reason why the electoral system is so secretive.

Each name listed here has undergone a complex application approval process. This is why it is also interesting to read on the Hollywood Walk of Fame website stories about the various celebrities who came here for the awards ceremony. The ceremonies are open to the general public. Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, the twin television stars were the youngest to receive a star - at the age of 17.

One of the most common phenomena here is to see tourists clinging to the name of a star of someone they really admire and taking a picture with their star. Louis Armstrong, David Bowie, Alfred Hitchcock, Marilyn Monroe, and Harrison Ford and even cartoon characters like Mickey Mouse and Pooh the Bear. You can find them all here.


#Stars and Criminals on the Avenue of Stars

The boulevard is being strengthened by the Historic Foundation of Hollywood. Every star who wants to see their name on the boulevard undertakes to attend the ceremony for up to five years from the date of the declaration and pay $15,000 to the fund for expenses (such as securing the ceremony). This amount is usually paid by movie studios and record companies as part of advertising costs. Sometimes the fan clubs pay the price - or the stars themselves.

Despite the meticulous care and maintenance, eight cases of theft of stars from the boulevard have occurred. In October 2016, it was vandalized with a hammer, the Donald Trump's star was stolen in the midst of the US presidential election campaign, which was destroyed by Jamie Otis, an ordinary man who pretended to be the mayor of Los Angeles.

In 1978 Los Angeles declared the boulevard as having cultural and historical significance.

Santa Monica Pier
#About the Pleasant Coastal Town

Along the Pacific Ocean stands Santa Monica, a beautiful and quiet beach town with a pleasant promenade, restaurants and cafés where many sit, volleyball courts with amateur and sometimes professional players, a children's playground and a "chess park" reminiscent of the square Washington Square in New York.

The beaches of Santa Monica are certainly known from the movies and series that are filmed here and include scenes filled with young surfers, shapely rescuers, pristine beaches with a lonely lifeguard hut, plenty of sun, sea, and sunshine.

Santa Monica itself was established in 1886 and named after the mother of Augustine - the Christian Santa Monica.

Its almost Mediterranean climate and exact location made it one of the most recognized and leading places among vacationers in the early 20th century. As a result of the growing numbers of tourists here, the city experienced a significant flowering during the 1980's. Pedestrians can enjoy the pleasant promenade, where shops and restaurants, designer stalls, street performances and what not, are located. You can also rent hiking or cycling equipment and children will enjoy the Pacific Park amusement park on the pier.

In the Hippodrome lies the legendary turnstile which is housed in a structure with a unique design from the past of Santa Monica. If you have time to get on it - it's a memento from other times, especially naive and nostalgic.

Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels
#About the Modern Cathedral of Los Angeles

Unlike the other cathedrals you have probably encountered, the Cathedral of Our Lady of Angels is a new addition to the landscape of Downtown Los Angeles and does not have a history for decades.

The building was designed by Spanish architect Jose Rafael Moneo and built to last 500 years. It was opened to the public in 2002. Moneo combined traditional European motifs into a modern and new structure.

It caused quite a few controversies due to its interesting design, the high costs required to complete the building, and the Archbishop's decision to store over 1,200 corpses on shelves in the church basement.

Inside the cathedral is a natural light that enters through the large windows and above the altar is a bright and impressive cross. If you go down to the Crypt Museum, you can see the city's previous cathedral, built in 1876 and damaged by an earthquake in 1994.

The large bronze doors at the front of the building were created by the sculptor Robert Graham, who also sculpted the statue of Our Lady with the angels guarding it from above.

Hollywood Sign
#About the Famous Sign that Was an Advertisement and Became a Symbol of Hollywood

The Hollywood sign is one of the most important cultural icons for any tourist coming here. It is located at an altitude of 478 meters above sea level, on Mount Lee, within Griffith Park.

The sign itself is protected, so do not be surprised if you can not touch it or approach it. In September 1932, actress Peg Entwistle committed suicide by jumping from the letter "H."

This sign is currently registered as a trademark and can not be used without the approval of the Hollywood Board of Commerce.


#History of the Hollywood Sign


The funny story behind it is that it was designed here as a real estate advertisement in 1923. Its purpose was to promote a new construction project in the Hollywood Hills of the Santa Monica Mountains, with the name "Hollywoodland." In fact, the intention was not to let the sign stay up, the developers intended that the sign would remain in place for only a year, in order to promote the project.

The contract with the maintenance company of the sign ended in 1939, and after a few years the sign deteriorated. In 1949, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce purchased the sign, removed the word "Land" and corrected the rest of the sign.

The new sign was inaugurated on the 75th anniversary of the founding of the city of Hollywood on November 14, 1978. The ceremony was broadcast live on television, where 60 million viewers watched. It also became a star in its own right when it appeared in various scenes in films and series, especially to indicate the location of the plot.


#Tips

For a good photo location: to take pictures of the sign without disturbing the residents, and without getting a parking ticket or being too far away, reached Lake Hollywood Park. Parke a little further down. Walking to Mulholland Drive with Deronda drive will take you to the open entrance to the White Wall and from there to an observation point and an excellent shot to the sign.
