Inexpensive cafe for a tasty, simple and nourishing breakfast. It works without a weekend and opens at eight in the morning, which made us very happy, because today we got up early to have time to visit all the planned places and in the evening to be in another city.
The land on which the Capitol was built was donated by patron Kir Holliday, president of Topeka Town and one of the founders of Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe railways in 1892. On February 7, 1862, the legislature accepted the donation and approved the design of the building, designed by the architect Edward Townsend Mix of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. The majestic building, built in the style of classicism, still impresses with its exterior and interior design. From Monday to Saturday you can visit some of the Capitol's rooms with a tour guide, but on Sundays you can only see the building from the outside.
We've decided to continue our acquaintance with the history of the state of Kansas at the local museum. The exposition here is very interesting and informative, the old clothes, household items, weapons and ammunition are exhibited, and, in my opinion, the most interesting - vehicles, from simple carts to locomotives and planes.
We went to the pizza place for a snack. Everyone liked such a dinner - fast, tasty, and not expensive. Another advantage of this place is that here you can not only choose a pizza from the menu, but also collect it to your liking, adding any ingredients and sauces.
The mission of the reserve is to preserve a nationally significant natural zone, which now represents a fragment of a once vast prairie with tall grass. We enjoyed the space and a walk on one of the trails. The reserve is home to bison, and you can see entire herds here. At the information center we were immediately warned that buffalo are wild animals, so for your own safety, it is better to watch them from afar. The recommended distance is at least a hundred yards.
If the previous park was a habitat for large wildlife, this one, which is located within the city limits, can be called a real home for birds. There are flocks of ducks and geese in the lakes (and also on the lanes and in the flowerbeds). They are not afraid of people at all, but, on the contrary, very bravely begging for food.
We learned about this gastropub from friends, who have been here more than once, according to their assurances - this is the best such institution in the city. I will fully agree with their assessment, here, really, very tasty and atmospheric: nice interior, interesting serving of dishes, positive bartenders and waiters. From the dishes I can safely recommend pork in Korean, spicy and delicious.
