Goa is a very beautiful fishing town located 500 km from Mumbai. Its distinctive and recognizable feature is white-stone houses that remind of Hellenistic era Greece. But most of all tourists are attracted not by architecture, but by the sea. It is here truly charming, magical and attractive due to the incredibly rich blue hue.
Goa got its name due to the abundance of caves in its territory. One of them is the hallmark of the city: this is the “Tiberius Grotto”. According to historical records, Tiberius, being the emperor of that time, ordered that a summer residence be equipped for himself to hide from the scorching heat. There are no ancient sculptures in the grotto right now, but you can visit the nearby archaeological museum, which houses a sculpture group dedicated to the episode with the blinding of Cyclops Polyphemus from Odyssey. Surprisingly, it was recreated by scientists only from the wreckage.
Speaking about Goa, we cannot but mention the most important thing – the beaches. Among them there are paid and free, and all of them are open for visits usually from 8:30 to 19:30. Whichever one you choose, all the beaches are maintained in perfect condition: on the coast – the purest golden sand, clear azure water and a comfortable descent into the sea. The most popular among tourists are such beaches.
Tourists usually come to Goa either by train or by car. But if you choose the first option, then remember that it will be necessary to make one change to a bus or a passing taxi.
