Carnival of Venice - Masquerade time

Venice is not only very interesting and picturesque city in Italy, this is also the city that hosts the Carnival of Venice, which is annualy conducted. If it happens that you travel at that time of the year - this is the place you should visit. The tradition of conducting the Carnival of Venice exists since 15th century. It's very spectacular event. The festival starts 40 days before Easter and ends the day before Ash Wednesday. The original purpose was to remove the social boundaries between the classes. After 1970 was decided  this event to be renewed. Each year a great number of tourists travel and come to Venice in order to take part in the Carnival. One of the most interesting parts of it is the contest for best mask desguise. As the masks are fundamental for the festival, this is not surprising at all. The atmosphere of Venice itself is wonderful to be experienced, but the masks, dresses and ornately decorated hats only reinforce the greatness of it. You will feel as you've stepped back in time. Amazing!

Masks Bauta- this kind of masks cover the whole face. Nowadays the most used masks are these who cover the eyes, forehead, upper cheeks and nose, but enable the person who wears it to talk, eat and drink with ease. However, they still keep his identity hidden. I personally enjoy a lot this whole magnificent festival. Celebrations are so flamboyant with all the people wearing these gorgeous ornated masks.
