Melbourne is the southernmost cultural and sports center of Australia distinguished by its unique architecture. Over 170 years of its existence have been marked by continuous growth from a tiny village to one of the most populated cities on Australian continent. In the Victorian era there were a lot of miners, bankers and entrepreneurs here, as well as people from other countries who were hunting for an easy prey. During the global gold rush, Melbourne was the capital of the Australian Federation. At those times, it gained a lot of old buildings and a treasure house built in the style of an Italian castle. The Treasury still adorns the center of the city and is now a museum.

Modern Melbourne is a very lively metropolitan area. Festivals, carnivals and parades take place in the city regularly. Melbourne is considered to be the sports capital of Australia. In Melbourne, there is the world-class tennis complex "Melbourne Park", where the Australian Open tennis tournament is held annually giving a start to the grand slam tennis season in January. Melbourne's Albert Park is the place where one of the races of the Formula 1world championship takes place. One of the most interesting sights is the Melbourne Aquarium, located in the heart of the city on the banks of the Yarra River. Within the walls of the famous aquarium there is a wide variety of marine creatures from the gray nurse shark to the sub-Antarctic Gentoo penguins. Here you can see the world's first "circular aquarium" which creates an unusual realistic sensation of the underwater world surrounding the visitors.

Melbourne Museum also belongs to the category of interesting attractions, not only of the city, but the entire Australian continent. It contains seven main galleries, a children's gallery for visitors from 3 to 8 years old, and a three-level gallery for temporary exhibitions.
