Kip slobode u New Yorku ostao pust zbog pandemije

Kip slobode, spomenik u Sjedinjenim Američkim Državama (SAD), na ušću rijeke Hudson u New Yorku, ostao je skoro pust i bez posjetilaca zbog restriktivnih mjera uvedenih u cilju suzbijanja širenja koronavirusa, javlja Anadolu Agency (AA).

Svake godine Kip slobode posjeti oko četiri do pet miliona turista iz cijelog svijeta.

Posjetitelji se mogu popeti do krune božice, do koje vodi 354 stepenica. Do 1916. godine moglo se ući i u baklju, ali to više nije moguće zbog sigurnosnih razloga.

Ipak, ove godine zbog mjera uvedenih usljed pandemije Kip slobode je ostao prazan, što pokazuju i fotografije koje je zabilježio fotoreporter AA.

Kip slobode je izgrađen u Parizu i bio je poklon Francuske kojim je obilježena stogodišnjica nezavisnosti SAD-a 1886. godine. Od tada predstavlja pozdrav svim posjetiocima i useljenicima pristiglima u SAD.

Zbog jedinstvenosti i simboličkog značaja upisan je na UNESCO-v popis mjesta svjetske baštine u Americi 1984. godine.
