But at the same time, it remains a progressive and optimistic place, offering to learn a little more about the history of this part of the USA.

Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, ATL

Atlanta Airport is considered the busiest in the world for passenger traffic and for take-off and landing aircraft. In 2017 alone, the airport served more than 100 million people. And this creates certain inconveniences for tourists. Because the main characteristic that can be given to him: "slowness".


Despite all the basic amenities that are at the airport, it is important to stay calm and be prepared for the wait. Flights are often delayed for several hours. And besides, there may be a significant queue at the migration control.

What to do in Atlanta

Atlanta is known as the "hot city". As a decisive final blow to the southern states during the Civil War, much of the city was burned. But as a phoenix bird, Atlanta rose from the ashes, and now it is a city with an active cultural life, one of the cinema centers and flourishing culinary traditions.

Martin Luther King Jr. National History Museum

The main American civil rights activist once walked the streets of Atlanta too. In the house where Dr. King lived, the original interior has been completely restored. Here are collected exhibits dedicated not only to Martin Luther, but also to his wife Coretta Scott King, as well as fellow reformer Mahatma Gandhi.

Fox Theater

This is the oldest theater in the city where you can see everything at all: Broadway productions, performances by popular music groups or the best comedians of America. And in the intervals between the shows, tourists are led to the theater, showing the main hall in the Egyptian style, backstage life, as well as the largest operating organ in the world, “Mighty Mo,” built in 1929.

Piedmont Park

It seems that every city in America wants to respond in some way to Central Park in New York. So Atlanta has its own huge Piedmont city park. This is a paradise for lovers of picnics. Among the flowering greenery, at beautiful lakes and away from the concrete walls of the city, various festivals are constantly staged. And on weekends, jazz plays or the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra performs.

Georgia Aquarium

It is the largest indoor aquarium in the Western Hemisphere, which also serves as a training hospital for veterinary students. More than one hundred thousand aquatic inhabitants live in the aquarium. The largest of these are whale sharks, beluga and dolphins.

Fernbank Natural History Museum

This is not the kind of museum where schoolchildren around the world usually carry. The Atlanta Natural History Museum welcomes guests with a huge atrium with a life-size hanging skeleton of a brontosaurus. Almost the same as in the movie Jurassic Park. And here you can stroll through carefully recreated prehistoric places and watch the educational 3D-film IMAX about the development of life on Earth.

High Museum of Art

This world famous art museum has gathered a large international exhibition. The building was built of concrete, glass and steel, designed by architect Richard Mayer. The collection has literally everything: from ancient African art to contemporary works by American artists. Particularly popular is the exposition of American photography and a series of unusual installations, including Infinity Mirrors.

What to eat in Atlanta

To begin with, they invented “Coca-Cola” in Atlanta, one of the most recognizable brands in the world. We can stop on this point, but Atlanta can also please tourists with other goodies.

In this city you need to try fried chicken. They say that in the south of the United States they are best able to fry any part of the chicken and use it in a variety of ways. You can just take a KFC bucket, or you can order a huge sandwich with a schnitzel inside.

Be sure to try Chinese food in Atlanta. All this hand-made noodles, and Vietnamese soups, and Chinese dumplings. The local diaspora is able to surprise with the authenticity of taste.

Well, of course, you can’t ignore the local burgers. They are made here, it seems, with anything. But it is best to take a burger with ragged pork and pickled cucumbers.
