The Eden Project or in other words "Garden of Eden" was the plan of the British environmentalist Tim Smit. The idea of the project was to collect and grow a variety of plants from around the world in the moderate but wet and unstable English climate. This idea was aided by many architects and engineers. The construction site was chosen in the county of Cornwall, which is located in the South West of the UK. The year 2001 saw the completion of a number of domes which were built at the bottom of a deep pit, which was formerly a clay pit.
When you stand and look down upon the Eden Project a fantastic picture is in front of you, it’s as if a giant dragonfly with huge eyes is watching you! Huge translucent domes made of hundreds of plastic hexagons seem to hover at your feet, these giant biomes house tropical life!
You feel as if you are on another planet! The paths leading to the biomes are buried in an abundance of greenery. See the brightest of colours, exotic trees and shrubs in incredible shapes. At the very bottom you see a gigantic bee, which sits among the flowers at the entrance to a biome as a symbol of life and ecology.
When you walk inside the first dome you feel a real tropical African heat, it's the Rainforest Biome. Moist hot air creates ideal conditions for the growth of exotic plants: there are the vivid colours of palm trees, bananas, fruit trees including papaya, kola nuts, coffee bushes and pineapples. Here, under the dome light of this "Garden of Eden" flow streams and rushing waterfalls surrounded by lush tropical vegetation!
For almost half of a day you can walk on the numerous paths, climb hills, cross a raging river, enjoy the fragrance of flowers and finally relax under a palm tree in the cafe where you can rest and have a cup of coffee.
But ahead of you lies another biome - the Mediterranean!
This biome is a little smaller with vegetation more familiar to us - cactus, cypress, tobacco, lemons, oranges, grapes and flowers that you can find in the gardens back home. The air is much drier but the same heat and it's all thanks to the transparent film domes that support the ideal temperature for plant life.
An excursion to this wonderful tropical paradise takes a whole day and you may not want to leave! You return to the small train that takes you back to the top of the pit. When you look down - at the bottom, in the evening sunset you once again view the transparent biomes of the Eden Project. The atmosphere is upbeat with smiling and joking people all around you.
Yes, the British people are awesome! In this country which is located on an island with an unstable climate they built a miracle to make people happier and kinder, sending a message to everyone - keep our planet green!
