Canberra

Canberra is the hidden capital of Australia. Most travellers completely miss it out but we had a little opportunity to check it out.

Canberra je schovane hlavni mesto Australie a vetsina cestovatelu celou oblast vynecha a to je skoda.



Let this be a short and intense review of Canberra. It was an alternative route away from rain so we didn’t expect much. The capitol was really built to serve just one purpose and nothing else. Most buildings are “sterile” and they lack style, warm hearty touch and it’s just and only practical. Some people like/prefer it but we don’t.

There are heaps of museums and most of them are free so we went for the Portrait Gallery and the National Gallery. Verdict? Portrait gallery blew us away. It ended up being very personal and intimate experience and very much different from the National Gallery which lacks that personal feeling. Your taste = your choice.

We got a “last second” tip from a local guy to try the close-by mountain bike trails and the extra day that we had paid off. We have actually waited more than a month to go biking and this was the proper welcome back. Even though the trail complex is rather small it took us few hours to go through and truly enjoy the excellent flow. Awesome job guys with the Majura Pines trails!

So there you have it. There’s not much to do in Canberra but it can take you 2 full days which will be packed with different things. Go check the government house thingy on the hill, watch the sunset at above the War Memorial Museum, spend some time in one of the museums or you can always be creative in Canberra – dress you teddy bear in your girlfriend’s panties 🙂

Toto bude kratka a vystizna recenze Canberry – byli jste varovani! Kvuli desti jsme museli jet alternativni cestou a vyslo nam to na Canberru – osud asi fakt chtel, aby jsme si uz konecne zabajkovali.

Inu, jaka je tedy Canberra? Cele mesto bylo vybudovane pouze za jednim ucelem a to reprezentovat Australii a je to videt na kazdem rohu – vsude je placene parkovani, temer vsechny budovy jsou sterilni, bezpohlavni a chybi jim jakakoliv jiskra. Ale asi to dava I smysl – lepe se tem urednikum vladne a jsou krativnejsi v tech vsech podvodech kdyz doma maji byt jak vezni…

Je tu taky plno muzei a ackoliv nejsme zadni bohemove nebo uznavaci umeni tak jsme to riskli do 2 techto instituci. Galerie portretu byla pecka! Velmi osobni a intimni zazitek, jehoz nejvetsim a nejsilnejsim bodem byla video kolaz ze souteze studentu. Nekdy je potreba postavit archivni bysty k soucasnosti a pak se deji zajimave veci. Parada. Oproti tomu Narodni Galerie byla pro klasicke “Canberrani” – sbirka umeni bez smrncu a nazoru. Nevadi, my jsme se uz zabavili 🙂

Tesne pred odjezdem jsme dostali od mistnaka tip na maly areal stezek na kola a protoze uz to bylo par tydnu co jsme naposledy provetrali pedaly (Radi predni okolo bylo odcizeno nejakym spatnym clovekem) tak sme kejvli a dalsi den sli na to. Nevim jak vy, ale jeden den v muzeu a druhy den radit na kole terenu – to je docela basta! Nalezite jsme si uzili kazdou klopenku, vuni jehlici a toho krasneho zpoceneho spokojeneho pocitu na zaver celeho dne.

Takze joooo, Canberra prekvapila celkem prijemne, ale chapem, ze vetsina cestovalu se ji vyhne. Bez tech kol by byl ani ne polovicni zazitek. Sterilnost Canberry vyburcovala moji tvorivost a s medvedem jsme zkusili mensi modni prehlidku kalhotek. Vypadal spokojene, kulisak jeden 🙂
