There are two things that made Liverpool famous around the world. The first is the band The Beatles, which revolutionized modern music in the mid-twentieth century, and the second song "The Living of Liverpool", thanks to which everyone knows that the city is a port on the Mersey River. And these two aspects, the river and music intertwine in Liverpool at every turn.
From the beginning of its existence, the city was an important trade center and seaport. In the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, many ships set off on a cruise to America. Currently, the city's past and its connections with the sea are reminiscent of the modernly arranged Liverpool Museum in the vicinity of the docks. And these have undergone a profound change in recent years. From a place considered dangerous, dingy and dirty, they have become a fashionable and eagerly visited meeting point for both locals and tourists. The former warehouses contain apartments, restaurants and souvenir shops. There is also a Yellow Submarine center dedicated to the Beatles here.
Music is the theme of The Cavern. Located a little further from the port, it is teeming with life and bustle until late at night. The famous The Cavern club operates here, where the biggest stars of British pop music played or started their careers, including The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Queen and Black Sabbath. It also houses a small museum showing the history of the Beatles and British music of the 20th century.
