Title: Slajd 1

United states of America
Flag of the United States
  • The national flag of the United States of
    America, often simply referred to as the American
    flag, consists of thirteen equal horizontal
    stripes of red (top and bottom) alternating with
    white, with a blue rectangle in
    the canton (referred to specifically as the
    "union") bearing fifty small, white, five-pointed
    stars arranged in nine offset horizontal rows of
    six stars (top and bottom) alternating with rows
    of five stars. The 50 stars on the flag represent
    the 50 states of the United States of America and
    the 13 stripes represent the thirteen British
    colonies that declared independence from
    the Kingdom of Great Britain and became the first
    states in the Union. Nicknames for the flag
    include the "Stars and Stripes", "Old Glory", and
    "The Star-Spangled Banner."

American kitchen
  • American Cuisine, despite appearances is not just
    fast food, although it is generally fat, calories
    and unhealthy. Americans generally eat three
    meals a day rich breakfast, lunch and dinner in
    the evening at our dinner time. Using other
    kitchen Americans remake the rules "in their own
    way." Roast saddle of mutton - lamp chop grill -
    with pineapple, mushrooms, cloves and tomatoes
    ... sprinkled with sugar to improve the taste.
    Pork stew with apples with cinnamon and sugar.
    Apples stuffed with sausage.

  • Breakfast is usually cereals or pancakes with
    wheat or corn flour, topped with maple syrup. A
    popular dish is also eggs with bacon or ham. At
    the end coffee with cream and bread with cheese
    and ham. And the obligatory glass of fruit juice.
    A really great breakfast.

  • Lunch is usually in the city, at a restaurant
    during a break at work. They're the most
    sandwiches - hamburger or slices of ham, turkey
    or roast beef on bread. Lunch, or our dinner is
    equally abundant as the morning meal that
    consists of minimum of three courses.

  • On the occasion of festivals or celebrations
    dishes are unique and festive. And so on Easter
    is ham wirginijska. On the day of Lincoln's birth
    them to the casserole with bacon and beans on
    bostonsku. The traditional Thanksgiving turkey
    and pumpkin pie.

Traditions in the United States
Easter Parade
  • On Easter Sunday in many cities are held parades.
    The most famous of these is Easter Parade in New
    York, where it passes on Fifth Avenue elegant
    ladies dressed in costumes from the past,
    emphasizing especially the hats. Easter Monday in
    the U.S. is no longer a normal working day. On
    that day, the White House is just the traditional
    Easter event for children turning eggs across
    the lawn

Day of the dead
  • All Saints' Day in the United States is known to
    us as Halloween. On the same day the children in
    small groups, dressed as ghosts and ghouls, go
    from house to house, knocking on the door and
    saying, "Trick or Treat" (Refreshments, or
    scare), demanding treats. Although these customs
    come from Catholic Ireland to the U.S. they have
    the character decidedly pagan.

4th of July
  • The most important festival celebrated in the
    United States, Independence Day is celebrated on
    July 4. On this day, there are numerous concerts,
    parades and festivals. Tradition is also a
    patriotic speech uttered by politicians and civil
    servants. However, after dusk take place
    boisterous fireworks.

  • Thanksgiving Day this next to the Christmas is
    the most important religious holiday celebrated
    in the United States. On the last Thursday of
    November traditionally consumed as a gala dinner
    with family and friends. The main course is
    roasted turkey, served with side dish of
    cranberries and sweet potatoes.

USA Communications
Public transport and international transport
  • On the local market there are plenty of both bus
    operators and budget airlines offer transport is
    therefore broad and tickets at affordable prices,
    which makes traveling a real pleasure. Inherent
    means of communication in the country was and is
    a turn-enabled connection to the major cities and
    local routes. Endless hairpin turn highways are a
    magnet for coaches and cars. This is by far the
    most popular form of transportation, as indeed
    reflected in the number of cars moving on the

Travel by car
  • Travelling to the United States can and do have
    the right to drive a car, if they have an
    international driving license. Proceeding in this
    manner should exercise extreme caution and
    remember to observe the traffic regulations in
    force on the highways, and more. Particular
    attention should be paid to the speed limit and
    driving behavior to the police. We will be
    treated strictly drivers who are under the
    influence of alcohol, which may end up arrested.
    The car is therefore the most popular but
    somewhat inconvenient transportation. This is
    especially true of parking in large cities such
    as San Francisco, often finding space for our
    vehicle can border on the miraculous.

  • A good option is to travel by public transport
    especially if you already buy a special card
    called CityPass. It is a kind of ticket that
    entitles us to travel urban transport. The prices
    of these tickets are formed depending on the
    city, which happened to visit the. It is clear,
    therefore, that, for example, in New York, the
    ticket price will exceed those applicable in
    smaller cities like Chicago, Boston and
    Philadelphia. Nevertheless, having CityPass
    allows maximum use of public transport lines
    during our entire stay and "take off" with us to
    buy single tickets at a time. CityPass is an
    additional attraction, it pays to have, not only
    in financial terms - is in fact a ticket to visit
    the main attractions in the USA. Traveling around
    the United States we have so many options to
    choose from, in addition to bus and rail lines
    can move the colored trams or how it takes place
    in San Francisco - the famous train. We need to
    decide which way to travel suits us, especially
    because of the convenience and travel expenses.

Places to visit
  • Definitely a place you just can not miss is New
    York. Go through Times Square, admire the
    magnificent buildings theaters, exclusive shops,
    fine restaurants and lively clubs all night.
    Although for a while to stay in the heart of the
    city and feel like a real movie star. Millions of
    visitors each year to its charm delight as
    wonderfully situated on the Pacific city with an
    amazing atmosphere - San Francisco. It is here
    that we delight in the world-famous Golden Gate
    Bridge or will have the opportunity to ride a
    distinctive historic train. The major San
    Francisco to its location and climate zone in
    which it is located. City because often spowiela
    fog approaching from the Pacific Ocean.

City entertainment
  • The next stop on our journey is the city that
    never sleeps and annually attracts crowds of
    tourists to the famous Las Vegas. The world of
    gambling, casinos great restaurants, beautiful
    hotels is a showcase of the "desert" of the city.
    On site full of attractions and activities in the
    form of concerts and world celebrities, art shows
    and circuses. But Las Vegas is not only the
