Venice, Italy: Fun facts


"Venice never quite seems real, 
but rather an ornate film set 
suspended on the water." 
 -Frida Giannini-

Although we spent only one day in Venice, I divided the photos in two parts. Here you could read my own impressions and now you can discover some fun facts that I gathered up together, as well as another bunch of photos from this beautiful Italian city. As I told you in my first "fun facts" post from Andorra (here), this type of posts is something that I quite like and that I want to become a little tradition whenever I visit a new place. Hope you like it!

1. There are 118 islands, 416 bridges, 177 canals, 400 gondoliers, 450 palaces, 60 000 inhabitants and 50 000 visitors each day.
2. The first woman in the world that graduated was born in Venice in 1646.
3. It is not allowed to ride a bicycle and feed pigeons.
4. By the late 13th century, Venice was the most prosperous city in Europe.
5. The narrowest street in Venice is called Calleta and it's only 53 cm wide.
6. Acqua alta is the Venetian term for high water, which occurs during November and December when the tide rises up to 2 m and floods low areas such as Piazza San Marco.
7. Venice got its first female gondolier in 2010.
8. Words with Venetian etymology: ciao, ghetto, arsenal, gondola, lagoon, lido, Montenegro, regatta, quarantine...
9. Venice is one of the most expensive cities in Italy.
10. Venice is sinking at the rate of 2 millimeters a year.

Aunque pasamos solo un día en Venecia, dividí las fotos en dos partes. Aquí habéis visto una descripción de Venecia desde mi punto de vista, y para hoy he preparado unas cositas que a mí me parecieron interesantes. Además, como os gustó tanto mi primer post de este tipo cuando os hablé de Andorra (aquí), he decidido continuar con ellos cada vez que visite un sitio nuevo. Espero que os guste.

1. En Venecia hay 118 islas, 416 puentes, 177 canales, 400 gondoleros, 450 palacios, 60 000 habitantes y 50 000 turistas que vistitan esta ciudad a diario.
2. La primera mujer que se graduó, nació en Venecia en 1646.
3. Está prohibido montar en bici y dar de comer a las palomas.
4. En el siglo 13, Venecia era la ciudad más próspera de Europa. 
5. La calle más estrecha del mundo, Calleta, se encuentra en Venecia y mide solo 53 cm.
6. Acqua alta es la marea alta que puede llegar a medir 2 m y ocurre en noviembre y diciembre. En esta época se inunden las partes más bajas de Venecia, entre ellas la famosa Piazza San Marco.
7. Una mujer obtuvo por primera vez el título de gondolera en 2010.
8. Hay varias palabras que tienen el origen veneciano: ciao, ghetto, arsenal, góndola, laguna, lido, Montenegro, regata, carantina...
9. Venecia es una de las ciudades más caras de Italia.
10. Venecia se hunde 2 mm al año.

Iako smo proveli samo jedan dan u Venciji, podelila sam slike na dva dela. Ovde ste mogli da saznate kakav je utisak ovaj grad ostavio na mene, a za danas sam izdvojila nekoliko zanimljivosti o Veneciji, po uzoru na prvi post iz ovog serijala o zanimljivostima koji sam započela sa Andorom (ovde), a koji vam se toliko svideo. Nadam se da će vam se dopasti i ovaj.

1. U Veneciji se nalazi 118 ostrva, 416 mostova, 177 kanala, 400 gondolijera, 450 palata, 60 000 stanovnika i 50 000 turista dnevno.
2. Prva žena na svetu koja je diplomirala, rođena je u Veneciji 1646. godine.
3. U Veneciji je zabranjena vožnja biciklom, kao i hranjenje golubova.
4. Oko 13. veka, Venecija je bila najmoćniji grad u Evropi.
5. Najuža ulica na svetu, Calleta, se nalazi u Veneciji i široka je svega 53 cm.  
6. Acqua alta ili u prevodu "visoka voda" je venecijanski termin za povećan nivo mora koji zahvata ovaj grad u novembru i decembru. Plima dostiže visinu i od 2 m, a niže oblasti kao što je Piazza San Marco, trpe posledice poplave.
7. Venecija je dobila i svog prvog ženskog gondolijera 2010. godine.
8. Reči venecijanskog porekla su: ćao, geto, arsenal, gondola, laguna, lido, Montenegro, regata, karantin...
9. Venecija je jedan od najskupljih gradova u Italiji.
10.Vencija tone oko 2 mm godišnje.

  5. bilo bi šteta da nisi objavila ove fotografije jer su stvarno prekrasne...meni se sviđa ta ideja da se fotografije podijele u više objava, jer nakon nekog broja fotografija, malo je teško mozgu sve to upiti.

    Sviđa mi se i ova ideja zanimljivih činjenica....i sama uvijek volim čitati takve članke u novinama....što još reći? vas dvoje ste opet savršeni, a fotografije jednostavno oduzimaju dah, pogotovo one iz kanala.

    1. Da, nekada stvarno treba tako :) Ja obično znam da razgraničim šta želim da stavim na blog, a šta ne, ali kad je Venecija u pitanju, malo toga je ostalo po strani. Mislim da nema mesta koje je toliko fotogenično. Makar govorim iz svog iskustva.
      Ja uvek volim da čitam i istražujem, a neke stvari mi se urežu u glavi, pa eto, nekako je ovakva vrsta teksta došla spontano. Iako danas svako može da nađe bilo šta o nekoj temi, ja ipak volim da vidim i šta je to nešto što neko drugi izdvaja posebnim, pa me to i inspirše da učinim isto :) Hvala ti! :)

  8. These facts about Venice are very interesting, and I sure will enjoy reading the fun facts about other places, so please keep on doing that! I mean, you definitely extracted the most interesting facts about this city. I didn't know many of them, especially the one with the woman that first graduated is quite interesting. Thanks for letting me know, and I must say that Venice looks amazing through your photos! :)

I've heard about that Venice is sinking , actually I watched documentary about this, it's terrible for people who life there. What's more, I had no idea that Venice is including with so many islands! Great post, Tijana!
