Giant’s Causeway – is one of the most recognizable places in Ireland. This interesting rock formation consists of tens of thousands of basalt columns in the shape of cubes with a width of several dozen centimeters and reaching up to several meters in height.

Researchers claim that the giant’s causeway was created millions of years ago during a giant volcanic eruption, but Irish storytellers have a different opinion. They tell a legend of two giants: Scottish and Irish who fought among themselves and the causeway was a bridge between Scotland and Ireland.

The Giant’s Causeway was discovered in 1692 by the then bishop of Derry and is the only attraction of Northern Ireland on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
