The prohibition in the USA was established by the 18th amendment to the Constitution on 17.12.1917 (entered into force on January 17, 1920) and abolished by the 21st amendment on 5.12.1933.

In South America, 450 kilometers from the Peruvian capital, the city of Lima, the plateau of the Nazca desert is located, which became widely known about eighty years ago.
It is quite a deserted place, dominated by strong winds, which direction depends on the season. Plateau is considered to be one of the most arid places in the world. Rains fall two to three times a year. People have always avoided building dwellings in this area. However, this was true until the forties of the twentieth century.

The Inca Empire is one of the greatest civilizations of the past, with a rich history and culture and a significant influence on the modern world. This Indian state occupied wholly or partly the territory of six countries of modern South America.
Machu Picchu is an ancient city, built at the behest of the Inca ruler Pachacutecus in the 15th century. This place is often called a lost city, because for a long time no one knew about it.

For more than a century the Statue of Liberty all around the world is associated with New York and the United States. But what kind of prehistory did it have?

Impressive travelers can even experience a real shock, since there is simply no other such place on our planet.
This is a black country. And not because 95 percent of the inhabitants are from Africa, but because of the fact that its past and present are hopeless. Even more, the dark forces oppress it ever since the advent of the ships of Columbus.
Pre-Columbian America experienced the heyday and fall of the great civilizations - the Maya, the Aztecs, the Incas. The territory of modern Central and South America was inhabited by more than 5 thousand tribes. Some of them disappeared, leaving almost no trace. The others were completely destroyed. Most descendants of Indians of that era still live in Mexico, Bolivia, Peru, Ecuador and other countries of South America.
The mysteries of ancient civilizations left by the Inca Indians, the unique natural beauty of nature, the fairly high level of service in hotels and the quite loyal prices of tourist services have made Peru a real paradise for tourists.
Tourists, arriving in this country, as a rule, immediately go to examine the historical monuments of the ancient civilizations.
