Fun in Tivoli Park
The park is interesting for, that here everyone can find something for themselves to their taste. And everything is organized like this, that carriers of different tastes do not interfere with each other here. You can often see a company of adults, spending time in one of 24 restaurants in the park (among them there are very famous, featured in catalogs and guidebooks), enjoying beautiful views, brewed beer right here, hawthorn (that's what mulled wine is called here) and other joys of life. Meanwhile, their children (they periodically run up to get money) enjoy the rides in the park.
Literally immersed in countless colors, the park has a carousel, made in the form of small Viking ships, slot machines and other entertainment.
One of Tivoli's most notable rides is the huge 'roller coaster', which has a sonorous name "Demon". This is Denmark's biggest attraction, passenger speed, sweeping through breathtaking bends here reaches 80 kmh.
The park also has a concert hall, pantomime theater, show with illuminated fountains on the lake. But, the most important thing: the park is just very beautiful, especially in the evening, when a huge number of all kinds of flashlights and flashlights of different colors are turned on. From a design point of view, everything is done very stylishly here., no frills, the atmosphere of the old park of the last century has been preserved (Tivoli is sometimes called the "old garden"), walking along the alleys is extremely pleasant. by the way, Walt Disney, conceived his Disneyland after visiting Tivoli. Sometimes Tivoli is even called "the world's first Disneyland", but this is overkill. Besides Disney, Andersen was here (he, true, disliked the park), Alexander Benois (didn't like it either), Louis Armstrong, Jawaharlal Nehru.
Every Wednesday, and also on weekends, or rather at night, Tivoli Park is lit up with festive fireworks.
At the entrance to Tivoli you can buy either just an entrance ticket to the park, either a ticket, which includes the use of all attractions. For rides, however, you can pay later, as you use. But this is not very convenient, in addition, for active children it can turn out to be much more expensive. As usual in parks of this kind, the child's growth determines the right to use this or that attraction. Tivoli is not just a park, it's a magical atmosphere, nascent, thanks to the fabulous variety of scenery, entertainment and public.

The history of the creation of Tivoli
Tivoli (first name Tibur) has a very rich history, since it was founded much earlier than Rome - in the XIII century BC. According to the legends, the city is named after Tiburt - the son of the Argos king Amphiara.
Considering that, that Tiebour was located at a good intersection of all roads, leading from Rome to the east, it became a tasty land for many peoples - Pelasgians, Etruscans and Latins.
During the reign of the Latins, Tibur became strong enough and even successfully competed with Rome., but after the conquest of Tibur by the Romans, it lost its former power and turned into an important transport hub. Subsequently, Tivoli was used for recreation by the Roman nobility, who often built her villas here, which we can admire today.
But the desire to own an important transport hub lasted long enough. For some time Tivoli was ruled by the Byzantines, Visigoths, Pope and even Austrian rulers.
Unfortunately, during World War II, the city was subjected to brutal bombing, as a result of which many historical buildings were destroyed.

Origin of the name of Tivoli Park
Actually, Tivoli is an ancient city about 20 km from Rome. In Paris, between 1766 and 1842 years, Jardin de Tivoli amusement parks were in operation, named after the "gardens of miracles" (gardens of wonders) villas d'Este (Villa d’Este) in Italian Tivoli, which served as a model for the development of gardens and parks in Europe. At that time, it was customary to give everything new exotic names of non-local origin.. So they gave the new park an unusual name for the Danish ear, borrowing it from Paris. Someone noticed, what's the word tivoli (Tivoli), read from right to left gives something very similar to "I love it". But it's just a coincidence. by the way, following the Copenhagen Tivoli, analogous parks with the same name began to appear in many cities around the world. for instance, Tivoli parks in Kurashika (Japan), Ljubljana (Slovenia), Rakvere (Estonia). Once there was a park with this name in St. Petersburg.
Danish Capital Park Tivoli Park
Amusement park "Tivoli" (Tivoli Park) in Denmark, founded 15 August 1843 of the year, is one of the oldest and, simultaneously, one of the best in all of Europe. He is sometimes even called the great-grandfather of all modern amusement parks and amusement parks., including well-known Disneyland. And even if there is no place for a super-sophisticated swing here for a long time, made with the latest technology, nevertheless, there are high-speed carousels and roller coasters in the park and are popular.
Tivoli is a real fairy tale in reality, as for children, and for serious adult parents. Finding yourself in this incredible place, surrounded by many old carousels, illuminated by multi-colored spotlights and lanterns, free street performances for the delight of visitors, bright fireworks overhead, a huge number of flower beds and meadows, as well as an incredible pretty lake, in which live fish of rather large sizes is found, it's just impossible not to smile, do not forget about all your pressing everyday and work problems, do not allow you to relax and fully enjoy life at least occasionally, and forget at least one happy, childishly joyful moment. by the way, about the local lake and its inhabitants: you can always buy fish food next to it, which costs only about two crowns, and feed the inhabitants of the lake, admiring this funny process. The park is also famous for, that it is on its territory that the world's tallest carousel is installed, which is called "Star Flyer" (in translation means "Star pilot"). Its height is 80 meters! Thereby, during its rotation, such an impression is created, that you are flying over the city.
The doors of expensive respectable restaurants are always open for park guests., pantomime theater, and also the Moorish hotel "Nimbus", which used to be a real mansion. Moreover, at the local concert hall between May and September, you can enjoy the sounds of classical music, thanks to the most interesting annual festival. It is worth noting, this is far from the only cultural event, which is held here.
Unfortunately, park "Tivoli" works only in the warm season, namely: from 14 April until the 25 September. But on the other hand, some of the most massive holidays are held here.: 14-23 October - Halloween, and with 11 November to 30 December (Besides 24-25 December) - Christmas.
This amusement park is located in Copenhagen, capital of Denmark and covers an area of 8 ha. by the way, it is one of the three most visited entertainment places in Europe (Together with him, this title is shared by Disneyland Paris and Europa-Park). You can get to the park by city bus or taxi.

About the place of Tivoli Gardens
“Tivoli” is the ideological inspirer of Walt Disney in creating an entertainment empire. Danes, привыкшие выражать красоту и гармонию в малых формах, even live on the territory, whose area is slightly more 43 thousand square kilometers. Therefore, it is completely unexpected and unusual in this country to see such bourgeois gardens of Tivoli. This is a kind of pride of Copenhagen, an unusually large amusement park, combining many opposites. Here adults and children can find entertainment for themselves: here and the luxurious classic carousel Mary Poppins, and fairytale heroes of Kai and Gerda, and scenes from the life of Columbine, and Pierrot from the Harlequin, and a beautiful parade of boys-guards in red and white uniforms, and splendid Sunday fireworks. Tivoli Gardens are the most popular attraction of the Danish Kingdom. This is the third most visited park in Europe. by the way, shares of this object are even listed on the stock exchange. Working only five months a year, the park gathers more than three million people on its territory every day. Tickets are sold here either for one evening, or for the whole season, which is much more profitable. But the entrance ticket does not include attractions, they will have to be paid separately at the internal ticket offices of the park. Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen appeared in 1843 year. Then such entertaining gardens in an oriental style only began to come into fashion in Europe.. The author of the project, Georg Carstensen, was allowed to create a park only on condition, that all structures in it will be made of wood, glass and other lightweight materials. This was done in order, so that in case of military necessity, you can easily free up space for guns. It's been a long time since then, and the park has been reconstructed several times. Неизменным тут осталось только озеро, a huge sailboat is moored on the shore. The main beauty of this amusement park is, that its components are constantly changing, сад развивается. In May, 2009 a new attraction was opened in the Tivoli Garden, which is not similar in Northern Europe, not even in Russia. This is something like two huge asymmetrically moving “pendulum” with booths at the ends, making a full circle in the vertical plane. So entertainment is not for the faint of heart. Тем более что кабинки тоже вращаются вокруг своей оси со скоростью, reaching 100 kilometers per hour. Best time to visit Tivoli Gardens – night. At this time, there are thousands of lamps and candles glowing here.. The Danes are not for nothing the most famous masters in the creation of park decor. A discovery awaits at every turn, dragonflies and butterflies in flower beds, beaver houses in ponds, endlessly narrow paths, chinese pagoda, reflected in lake water, огромный мавританский дворец, Chinese theater and more. Another important component of the Tivoli Gardens – classical music concerts. It was after visiting the magical world of Tivoli, great cartoonist Walt Disney decided, how accents will be set in his Disneyland.
Photo and description
Tivoli Park - the largest in Ljubljana. It starts almost from the main square and extends to the north-west of the capital, occupying territory in 500 it. The park was founded in 1813 year, during the stay in Ljubljana of the occupying Napoleonic troops. And the name was given in honor of the Parisian gardens of Tivoli, favorite vacation spot of the French nobility.
Palace, around which the park was laid out, also called Tivoli, although the building was built much earlier. This typical example of classicism was erected in the 17th century by the Jesuits on the foundations of an older structure.. In the 18th century, the palace was the seat of the bishop of Ljubljana. In the middle of the 19th century, the Slovenian Catholic Metropolitanate acquired ownership of the building near the Cathedral of St. Nicholas, and the Tivoli Palace became municipal property. At the same time, an artificial pond with a fountain was created in front of him.. Today the palace houses the international center of graphic arts.
The original design of the park belongs to the French engineer Jean Blanchire. The park area united a small garden around the castle and a park near the Tsekin mansion. This mansion deserves a special mention.. Built in the Viennese Baroque style in 1720 year, during the French occupation, it was the residence of Napoleon's stepson Eugene Beauharnais, Brigadier General of the Army and Viceroy of Italy. Since the middle of the last century, the Tsekin mansion houses the Museum of Modern History, including collections of historical objects, photographs and archives from the start of World War I to Slovenia's independence after the collapse of Yugoslavia.
An arboretum was created in the park in the 19th century, it was handled by Vaclav Heinik, Czech gardener, became the first professional gardener of Tivoli Park. Subsequently, a greenhouse and a small botanical garden appeared on the basis of the arboretum..
The modern look of the park was created by the efforts of the famous Slovenian architect of the last century, Josef Plečnik. He designed a through avenue, connecting Tivoli with Ljubljana Castle through Prešerna Square and the Triple Bridge, as well as the internal layout of the park. As part of the project, alleys appeared in the park in the middle of the last century, hiking trails, fountains, gazebos, statues and flower arrangements. As well as playgrounds, concert hall, pool and Sports Palace "Tivoli". the main thing, the architect has provided many cozy corners in the park, which are not only a haven for lovers, but also tourists, tired of excursions.
History of the founding of Tivoli Park
Tivoli is the oldest amusement park in Europe, occupying area 8 ha. It was founded in 1843 year by Georg Garstensen on the site of fortifications, surrounding the Danish capital. Journalist and entrepreneur Garstensen, born to Danish diplomats, possessed money and influential acquaintances, but still faced difficulties in implementing my plan. He achieved an audience with King Christian VIII to approve the project, as it was necessary to obtain the so-called "privilege" - exemption from taxes for the first years of the park's operation. Before Garstensen, there have already been similar attempts, but unsuccessful. they say, key argument, convinced the king, became Garstensen's phrase: "Your majesty! When people have fun, he forgets about politics ". The argument seemed convincing to the king, because in Denmark then there was a "fermentation of minds" (only a few years remained before the adoption of the first constitution). Permission has been obtained, although the king made a condition, so that there is nothing shameful or humiliating in the entertainment of the park. Another condition was set by the military: all park structures must be lightweight and quickly disassembled, that, if necessary, the place could quickly be cleared for the installation of guns. Probably, that is why little is left of Andersen's Tivoli: the oldest buildings in the park (main entrance and pantomime pavilion) were built already in 1874 year. After the opening of the park, its interesting "collateral" ability to democratize society was discovered: paying for a ticket, all classes received equal rights and opportunities in the park. And since entertainment was liked by different segments of the population, then it turned out to be that unique place, where everyone could meet and communicate.
The park was constantly being rebuilt, developed. Only the lake did not change, around which the park is laid out. New buildings were built, attractions. This process continues now. The possibility of introducing a new advanced visitor control system was actively discussed last year., scanning their faces. New attractions have recently appeared. "Vertigo" - 40-meter tower, around which two aircraft controlled by "pilots" revolve, developing speed up to 100 km / h. In May, 2009 a new record-breaking attraction has opened - two huge "pendulums" revolve around an axis, on which they are attached. Cab speed, fixed at the ends, also reaches 100 km / h. Generally, fans to tickle their nerves will not be bored here. There is also a tragic episode in the history of the park.. During the occupation of Denmark by the Germans, occupation authorities, enraged by the successful operations of the Danish Resistance, decided to carry out a terrible retaliation: 25 June 1944 of the year in the Tivoli park, a gigantic explosion was organized by the sabotage "group of Schalburg". As a result,, the entire southern part of the park is level with the ground. But right after the end of the war, already in 1945 Danish designer Paul Hennigsen and architect Jan Brandt developed a plan for the restoration of the park, which was successfully implemented.
The city has 3 main villas, which brought considerable fame to the city: Andriana, Gregoriana and d'Este.
Villa Andriana bears the name of the famous ancient Roman emperor, who loved to rest here. This villa is the oldest of the three, therefore the worst preserved, besides, it is farther from the center than others, but if you want to see ancient buildings and green fragrant parks, you here.
Villa Gregoriana is a landscaped park with man-made cascading waterfalls, grottoes, streams and tunnels. Due to the abundance of greenery, water and indescribable landscapes, Villa Gregoriana has rightfully gained fame among tourists.

Another villa, stunning no less - villa d'Este. This villa is the most famous in the town, Moreover, with an abundance of fountains and a well-thought-out park area, Villa d'Este is even better than the rest of the villas, although others are no less interesting. Also d'Este is famous for, which became the prototype of the French Versailles and impressed with the construction of the Russian Peterhof. [Подробнее о вилле д’Эсте
In addition to fabulously beautiful villas, in Tivoli you can see other historical sights
The Pia Fortress deserves the attention of tourists - a medieval defensive structure, where various cultural events are held today
Also Tivoli is interesting for its basilicas, cathedrals and churches. Unique creations are preserved in the temples of Tivoli - sculptures, icons and frescoes, amazing creations. In the cathedral church you can admire the masterpieces of Lucatelli, Manenti, Renee, а в церкви святой Анны – фресками XV-XVIII столетия. Интересны и древние святилища – храм Весты и храм Сивиллы.
После прогулки по городу можно подкрепиться в старинном ресторане «Сивилла», which is a kind of landmark of the city.
At one time the restaurant was visited by Goethe, Bryullov, Garrot, members of the Romanov family and other famous personalities.
Sibyl Restaurant (pink) and the temple of the same name
The excursion program can be combined with wellness treatments, because Tivoli is famous for its healing thermal springs: the mineral water of this city is used to treat diseases of the gastrointestinal tract and respiratory tract.
The city is located in 24 km from the capital of Italy. You can get to Tivoli from Rome by taking a bus, train or excursion to Tivoli.
If you want to get a real immersion in the atmosphere of Tivoli, I recommend to book a guided tour by car. This way you will definitely get the maximum experience..
Book an excursion to Tivoli
By bus or train
Buses run every 20 minutes, though, usually, buses are always full enough. Travel time takes from half an hour to one and a half (traffic is delayed by traffic jams).
Trains leave from Rome's Tiburtina and Termini train stations every 40-50 minutes. If you choose a train, the trip process will be more pleasant.
If you choose to go to Tivoli on your own, I recommend booking tickets in advance.
