Punting on the river

Jednym z najlepszych sposobow na zobaczenie budynkow Uniwesytetu Cambridge jest relaksujaca wycieczka z przewodnikiem po rzece Cam. Podczas wycieczki lodka mozna zobaczyc kaplice King’s College, Biblioteke Wrena, oraz Most Matematyczny.

One of the nicest ways to see some of the Cambridge Uni colleges is a guided punting tour on the river Cam. During the tour you can relax and enjoy the views of King’s College Chapel, Wren’s Library or Mathematical Bridge.

Most matematyczny, pomimo iz ma ksztalt luku, zostal zbudowany tylko z prosych kawalkow drewna. Legenda glosi, ze most zaprojektowal sam Izaak Newton w oparciu o prawa fizyki, bez uzycia zadnych gwozdzi czy srub. Podobno ciekawscy studenci, ktorzy chcieli sie przekonac, czy naprawde nie ma w nim zadnych gwozdzi, rozebrali most jednej nocy i nie potrafili zlozyc go  z powrotem, wiec uzyli srub i gwozdzi do polaczenia elementow.

The mathematical bridge, although shaped like an arch, was build using only the straight pieces of timber. According to the legend, the bridge was designed by Sir Isaac Newton himself, based on the laws of physics, without any use of bolts or screws. Apparently, some nosy students wanted to check if there really isn’t any screws inside and took the bridge apart one night. Unfortunately, they weren’t able to put it back as it was and had to use some bolts to keep the timber beams together.

Ale jednym z najbardziej urzekajacych widokow jest Bridge of Sighs (Most Westchnien).

But my most favourite attraction was The Bridge of Sighs.
