Wellington reflects the pride and beauty of New Zealand. The second largest city in the country, it plays vital role for culture and arts, commerce and politics in New Zealand. Government is based in Wellington, where the main diplomatic decisions are made in its Parliament building, and the mainstays of New Zealand’s film industry are also based in the city. For instance, the movie trilogy Lord of the Rings brought a lion’s share of tourist interest to the city.
In addition, its impressive harbor setting entices visitors with unforgettable views, while ferries dominate the city’s waterfront. This is a city to sunbathe at the best swimming beaches, enjoy excellent surfing and sailing and end the day with the quintessentially Wellington experience - the Te Papa Museum – a landmark in the city.
Other attractions include;
Museum of Wellington City & Sea, a museum of the history of Wellington
Frank Kitts Park, a great place to have fun with walls to climb, inline skates
Brooklyn Windmill, a place to get an excellent view of the city
Old St Paul's, the Anglican center for decades
Matiu/Somes Island, an island with its share of history
The harbor around Wellington has attracted visitors since ancient times. Famous explorer Kupe came to the area in 950AD, while the ship of the British explorer Captain Cook docked at the shores of the city in 1773. Even though the first pioneers of the land, the Maori, named it `Whanganui-a-Tara’, the final adopted name was Wellington to honor the Duke of Wellington. Since then the city has become a draw for Europeans to relocate, especially once governmental credentials moved from Auckland to Wellington in 1865.
This tendency placed Wellington at the 12th position among the most livable cities in the world in 2009. People fancy Wellington for its mix of architectural styles, cultural flavor and social significance. Today Wellington is easier to visit with Booked.net.
