Pune, also called Poona, city, west-central Maharashtra state, western India, at the junction of the Mula and Mutha rivers. Called “Queen of the Deccan,” Pune is the cultural capital of the Maratha peoples. The city first gained importance as the capital of the Bhonsle Marathas in the 17th century. It was temporarily captured by the Mughals but again served as the official Maratha capital from 1714 until its fall to the British in 1817. Pune has long been a major educational and cultural centre. Pune is known for its educational tourism and has a blend of cultural, business, health, cuisine tourism background. The large student population in the city makes for a lively nightlife and vibrant atmosphere. Pune also houses fantastic restaurants, good museums, and hill forts which offer panoramic views. Pune is a gateway to knowledge about the past with opportunities to learn from the help of forts, monuments, museums and higher-learning institutions.
A beautiful place. Architecture, art, and food, of course....
This place is special to me because... of it's beautiful architectural artistic history. I've always found Rome to be such an inspiring place as an artist, and I've been wanting to create something that would portray that very serene and almost surreal feeling I get from seeing and visiting Rome. The goal of this piece was to show Rome as a courtyard full of marble statues depicting my favorite Roman monuments and various tourists in ancient Roman garb!
When it comes to describing my special place, it would be Ottawa, Canada, because that is where my grandmother lives. Like the bear in this picture, my grandmother is where my home is. She brings lots of joy, love, and beauty to the family.
This place is special to me because I now call it home. Two years ago we moved from the city of Bordeaux, to this golden sweet wine producing region of France where the fall morning mist causes the grapes to have “noble rot”, creating a high concentration of sugar in the grapes before they’re picked and made into wine. The landscapes are beautiful here. Sauternes is home to Chateau Yquem, a wine so special, that it’s the only Premier Grand Cru classé “Superior” in the world.
This place is special to me because I grew up here. I like to show all the great attractions and draw them in my style. I have done this map before in a much looser format. This is a more geographically correct version. I hope you enjoy looking at it as well as coming here for a visit sometime.
Being invited on holiday ten years ago by family friends when I was just 15 was the beginning of many years of adventures in this special town in Austria. Their love for it prompted it to become a home from home for them and I am privileged to have shared many trips, celebrating birthdays, Christmas and seeing in New Year surrounded by family and friends. I learned to ski in these beautiful mountains and have spent many hours having fun exploring the town and the local area. Schladming is special to me not only because of the breath-taking scenery, beautiful churches and quirky bars and restaurants but because of the memories I have made there with the people I love. My next visit in a few short weeks will see us toasting in 2020 and may my adventures long continue in this beautiful little place.
A map of my hometown, Uzice, showing some of the interesting buildings there. I wanted to show the diversity of architecture, ranging from very traditional, oriental buildings up to Yugoslavian brutalism. And we have funny names for all those buildings! Even the MoMa museum had an exhibition and our Hotel was one of the exhibited pieces. We have a Hydropower plant, which is the first electrical plant made according to Tesla's principles of an alternating current in Europe and second in the world, only five years after the first of its kind on the river Niagara in America. Also I've put only one food illustration, our traditional dish called 'Komplet lepinja" that can be only bought in Uzice, and that is one of the things that the Uzice is known for. I hope that this map would spark an interest in you that you find out more about this city.
This place is special to me because I grew up in Kragujevac and a few years ago I returned to my hometown to finish my university degree. Like most people from small towns, I too, was itching to move as soon as possible, get out there and see the world. I'm not saying I've changed, but I've started to appreciate this place more over time, people who live here, it's history. It is said that the town got its name after a bird, a type of raven or an eagle, that's been living in these areas for centuries - kraguj. And if you were to visit for a day, here are a few places to stop by. (:
This place is special to me because I live here and frequent all these places of the New West Riverfront regularly. New Westminster is the oldest city in Western Canada. Yellow and blue are its colours. I had fun challenging myself to use a limited colour palette for my first ever illustrated map! Some fun facts:
1. The World’s Tallest Tin Soldier stands at 9.75 meters high.
2. The sculpture at Hyack Square is a reproduction of an iconic photo taken 3. at that intersection during war times in 1940.
4. The chair at Hive Cafe is made (by Hive City) completely of cardboard.
5. Pier Park has won several awards for urban design and even includes a small man-made beach.
6. WOW Westminster is a giant sculpture of the letter W using four shipping containers.
I love living here! It’s historic, tight-knit, and has the charms of both a bigger city and a small town.
