Glimpses of Melbourne


It’s a mellow Victorian city, always keen to mesmerize you! Whether it’s a modest carriage ride or a sip at a café, laneway lounges or shopping, savoring culture or sauntering on the streets – you simply can’t get enough of it.

Autumn days of Melbourne

Melbourne is known to have the biggest tram network in the world. When you are here, you can’t resist traveling on a tram. It’s an experience which swiftly connects you to the real Melbourne. Being the second most populous city in Australia, it bustles with energy, however, it still has the essence of a colorful old world, which is subtly manifested in the air.

Playing chess in the morning is a local tradition (I guess), because the chess pieces disappear towards the afternoon.

Walk down the Swanston Street with élan and let the city enchant you with every nook and corner. It’s one of the main streets of central Melbourne, which crosses the Princes Bridge over the Yarra River.

Streets & Tram tracks of the city

The street passes several eminent Melbourne landmarks, including the Capitol Theatre, St Paul's Cathedral, Manchester Unity Building, Federation Square, Flinders Street Station, the Melbourne Town Hall, the City Square, the State Library of Victoria, the Melbourne Central and QV Village shopping centres, and Curtin House.

A glittery evening awaits you at the pub Young & Jackson and the Hi-Fi Bar, which is a major live music venue. Bookworms can find a haven at the University of Melbourne and RMIT University, which are also located on Swanston Street.
