One color: the most stunning monochrome cities in the world
Do you remember how Malvina wanted to paint all the objects around her in blue to get a fabulously wonderful world? We decided to go further and found stunning one-color city, which certainly would have delighted the girl with an unusual shade of hair. And if you have not yet decided where to spend your next vacation, then look at these areas.
Jaipur, called the Pink city, is the capital of Rajasthan state, lost somewhere in the desert. All buildings in the city, founded in 1727 by Sawai Jai Singh II, are made of pink Sandstone, which, in fact, gave the area a special charm and became a kind of hallmark of Jaipur.
This former capital of Morocco is the fourth largest city in the country after Casablanca. And if you like Oriental tales, then we advise you to visit the Medina, which is the oldest part of the city and preserved the appearance of the good old Marrakech. It is here that in the winding maze of narrow streets you can find houses made of red clay and have a characteristic shade, as well as Eastern markets and other attractions.
Orange or Red Bologna, Bologna Scientist — as soon as not called this Italian city located in the region of Emilia-Romagna. All the buildings here have a terracotta shade, and the construction of the streets is so convenient that even a small child will not be lost in Bologna. By the way, here is the University of Bologna opened in 1088 — the elder among the universities of the world. Therefore, in the city you can meet a lot of students hurrying in the morning to lectures, and in the evening — in bars, skip a glass or two “Aperol Syringe”.
The settlement, which is referred to as the Yellow city, is located in the Mexican state of Yucatan, 66 kilometers from the state capital, the city of Merida. Today it is a charming place where all the buildings are painted in a pleasant yellow shade, and on the streets you can find carriages and tricycles (3-wheel bikes with canopies). In 2000, the population of the town was about 15 000 people, and today Isamal is one of the most popular destinations where crowds of tourists come every year from all over the world to learn more about the preserved traditions of the Maya.
Perhaps, Sidi Bou said is the most beautiful and the most romantic city in Tunisia. It is not for nothing called blue and white: all buildings in the city are white, and all the Windows, shutters, bars and gates — sky-blue hue. According to local legend, once upon a time a house in this amazing area bought a rich French Baron, who, in fact, offered the townspeople to repaint their homes in blue and white, so they are not heated under the rays of the scorching African sun. The locals liked this idea so much that they enthusiastically took up its implementation and since then do not recognize other shades.
Another amazing city, impressive for its blue, is located in the North-West of Morocco and is the main city of the province of the same name. It is believed that during the medieval Spanish Reconquista here found refuge Jewish refugees who left Europe. They were first to bleach at home blue with lime to mark their settlements in Chefchaouene, and then other people took over this venture.
