Opa-Locka

This city was created by Glenn Curtis on the theme "Thousand and One Nights" in 1926. Opa-Locka owns the largest collection of Neo-Moorish- style architectural objects, and its streets have the most unusual and beautiful names, for example, Shaherizad and Sultan.

Initially, it had the name Opa-Tisha-wocka-locka, that is, “a huge island under the cover of trees and swamps,” but because of the extra complexity it quickly transformed into a simpler and more convenient version. The famous architect Bernard Muller created twenty unique works of architectural art, which became part of the National Register of Historic Places.

Bright domes and arches suggest that you are not in Opa Locka, but in Central Asia. In addition to the incredible buildings, there is a huge airport in Opa Locka, several parks and lakes and a railway. Celebrities such as Brisko, Tedd Luis and Harry Wain Kasey live here.

Sights of Opa-Locka

Opa Locka is a great place to admire unusual sights. For tourists, twenty buildings by Bernard Muller have a special magnetic power. These are unique architectural works in the style of the Moorish Renaissance, distinguished by extraordinary beauty. Another place to spend your time in the city is Sherbodny Park - beautiful and cozy, with wonderful paths, tall and beautiful trees, inviting you to sit there and enjoy the tranquility and coolness.

The famous Reef of the Memorial of Atlantis is a good way to think about the transience of life and the fragility of man, and to find a better use of cremated remains than decorating a mantelpiece. This is the world's largest artificial reef - an underwater mausoleum for the remains of surviving cremation. The dust here becomes an integral part of the reef, turning into a part of a surprisingly beautiful exposure. The other artificial reef was not so lucky, and after the failure to create it, the place of construction was trivially flooded with tires, making it an equally fun sight and original installation about the harm to the nature of human activity.

How to spend time in Opa-Locka

A trip to Amelia Earhart Park will be a wonderful memory for you. Here you will find many beautiful things surprising: eight-mile routes for bicycles and skateboards, fishing and a small farm, where your children can get to know agriculture, milk the cows and sheep to shave, buy souvenirs and visit the insect museum.
