 Gersbach District, Ordona 

Hey guys, thanks for stopping by. Today we will return to Ordona to see the Gersbach(pronounced gyers-back) district. It also known as the Ambassador's Village. It used to be Grevershki, but was moved down to Ordona. Gersbach district is directly across from the Petrova Simlympic Park and just outside of the city(another update). So far, there's about 6 embassies in the city and growing. There is unlimited space, so don't forget to PM me your building of choice for the embassy(preferred landmark, mid-rise, no high rises please).

Gersbach Dist. has a couple of amenities for our international guests. There are numerous five star hotels along the coast, a resort, and a mall. These will be revealed at a later time, but here is a teaser of what to expect:

Arevalo Mall, Gersbach District, Ordona 

Welcome back to Ordona and today, we will take a rest! Today we are going to visit the newly constructed Arevalo Mall!

 

ArevaloMall.jpg

 
 
Located in Gersbach District, the Arevalo Mall gives our guests and foreign leaders a chance to relax after a day's hard work. The modern and funky mall offers 20 restaurants, a huge food court with 50 mini-restaurants, 178+ stores, 3 spas, an arcade room, 3 movie theaters, 4 banks, an outdoor botanical garden, 5 department stores and more. The mall actually has 5 stories underground for a more vast shopping experience. The King also wants a roller coaster ride inside the mall, but will it be underground?

Arevalo1.jpg

Being located in the ambassador's village means that Arevalo Mall caters to international tastes. Therefore, the King has sent volunteer Petrovar tourists all over the world to find the best restaurants in the world. The King chose half from that list and ordered them to be built in the food court. There are a couple of restaurants built outside the mall: McDonald's, Olive Garden, Jolibee, Burger King, KFC, Wendy's and Chili's.

Wow...I just realized that there were two CJ sections...ahhhh! It looks nice, so I think I'll try and start moving my updates over there. I will prolly do simultaneous updates so that y'all can go to either one to see my updates.

Sorry guys, today I don't have a cultural update for Petrova, but I do have something that I haven't posted in ages: the Chihiro Diplomat. I also changed the format so yea, enjoy!

 Petrova Simlympic Park, Ordona 

I thought you guys are prolly tired of seeing Chihiro, so here is another city in Petrova: Ordona. Ordona is a suburb of the Petrovan capital, Chihiro. It is a new city, and there are no inhabitants as of February 2009. However, luxurious and spacious suburban houses are being built and will be ready by the end of March. Just outside of Ordona will be the new Petrova Simlympic Park. Ordona used to be a boring and endless forest, but thanks to Project Brytyavska, 15 million tons of sand will be transported from the beaches of Mexico, Madagascar, China and Spain to Ordona's shores. It will redefine the word "green" as the park will offer a beach paradise setting for the October 2009 Simlympics that will hopefully be in Petrova.

Photobucket

The new Petrova Simlympic Park is scheduled to be completed by August 2009. This is just one of the four total parking areas in the PSP. Each parking area will have a capacity 30,000 making a total capacity of 120,000. The palm trees seen here have been imported from Cancun, Mexico. Each palm tree has been decorated with white lights, with LCD screens in between the trees. Cameras have been hidden in every other two trees for security.

Hopefully y'all like this update. I know its short, but I dunno about you, but I am tired from the Miss SimUniverse Competition lols. Anyways, I have been changing formats and looks of the updates frequently, but I think I will stick to this one. I like the widescreen look as well as the modern banners. As for the cultural insights of Petrova, I like them, so they will be back next update! The next update will probably be in the middle of this week or the weekend. And lastly, thanks for everyone's participation at the MSU and for keeping up with this CJ. I have a lot in store to show you guys, so stay tuned!

Economy 

I am proud to say that regardless the recession that's occuring worldwide, Petrova is one of the few countries that is still going strong. Thanks to our analysts, we were able to put forth stimulus packs before anything got worse in the country's economy. Also, Chihiro, Petrova has become one of the most wanted cities to live in. It currently ranks at 7th place in terms of developing cities. Of course there's Dubai, Jargeah and Hong Kong. Here's a look at the new Asla Vehram Residential District. 

AslaVerham.jpg

Here is a sneak peak of the new Ladaysha District just west of the Cuidad fi Cisnik. Yes, we know there's repetition in this district, but as soon as the city gets settled, we will immediately work on a more realistic and unique city.

Every update, I will take you to different places and cities, cuz I'm sure y'all are tired of Chihiro. I will also try to finish up showing the CIV by the end of January. There is also a new look to the pictures. Well, here's the first update of 2009! 

The Downtown will have a totally new layout from the old one as well as this will be more dense, less Maxis, more custom and it will be divided into districts. The Business District (south of the English Strait) will be full of foreign companies and domestic companies. It will be also home to many embassies. So please tell me if you would like an embassy and also please pick a building from the STEX. Thanks.

 Wow...thanks to all who commented on my CJ, I guess the Royal Palace is a success...hmm maybe I should post more of the Royal Family...

I just got back from Orlando yesterday so I wasnt able to do much, but I think I owe you guys a late Christmas gift. Some of you guys are wondering what's next after the opening, well it got pretty hectic. Some were still doing Christmas shopping and fortunately nobody was ran over, shot, hanged, kidnapped, and tortured regardless of the extra low prices. Its CHRISTMAS IN PETROVA! The day after the opening, the people gathered at the Grand Amphitheater to watch the lighting ceremony. 

Lighting.jpg

Then a couple of days later, its Christmas! Thank God it snowed during Christmas Eve! The first mass was also held on the eve and over 8,000 attended the St. Mark's Catholic Cathedral in the Natoire District. 

Mass.jpg

Despite the snow, there was a fireworks show at the Royal Palace.

Petrovar Ambassador

 Today is the day when the capital of Petrova is re-opened and comes to life. Over 1 million people will literally move into Chihiro overnight. They have been living in temporary residential areas near Grevershki and will be compensated 50,000 Petrovars each person. The construction sites have been closed off pretty good even from the sky, so nobody could've possible seen the new city, except for you guys 

So without further ado let's begin! The people entered the new capital through the Chihiro International Airport. It will be the largest in Eastern Europe and will be home to over 200 airlines. The new airport will accomodate the traffic in the upcoming years when Chihiro will have a population of 30 million. The CIA has three main terminals, 40 Restrooms, 6 Theaters, 50 Restaurants, 1 Shopping Mall, 3 Police HQ and 5 Fire HQ. 

AirportAd.jpg

Parking.jpg

View.jpg

The airport has opened last night and over 600 planes have arrived at Chihiro. There has been an adequate amount of security to prevent any chaos. The highways have been widened so that there wasn't any major traffic. Once the citizens have settled into their new homes, they gathered at the Grande Amphitheater. Here's the welcome presentation that was shown to the citizens. 

When it was night time, the citizens were treated to a night of entertainment at the Chihiro International Village Lake. (Yes, I know it says Disney's Epcot, but this is what I was talking about when I said nighly entertainment at the CIV Lake. The night show in the CIV will be just like Epcot). Enjoy. 

 

Fireworks2.jpg

Well, I hope you guys enjoyed this show as much as the Petrovars did. This event was a success and now we hope for a successful outlook of not only the city, but the country of Petrova!

 Update: The European Village at the CIV


Europe.jpg

I know, I know, I said the next update will be the Grand Opening, but its still on the 20th haha. But I was thinking, how can we have a grand opening if I haven't even finished showing you guys the rest of the CIV?? So I am going to show you guys the European Village. The rest shall come on Saturday. Enjoy!

Here are some pics of the European Village.

Destination: African Village at CIV


Gracias, Merci, Salamat, Spasibo, Thank ye, Jag tackar, Yaqhanyelay, Thank you very much for stopping by. I apologize for not updating lately due to school. I was going to update Tuesday and Thursday, but i was busy with this project in French class lol. So here I present to y'all three updates! 

First, we will continue the tour of the International Village to Africa. The famous attraction of this village is the safari tours. There wasnt much I could dig up on African bats, so here is the best I could do. If you guys find any other African buildings, please let me know, thanks.

The Petrolympics is a national sporting event that occurs in Petrova prior to every Simlympics. The city of Grevershki hosted this year's Petrolympics. Here are the highlights of the games. The games began with the opening ceremony at the National Stadium. 

Opening.jpg

Opening1.jpg

In the Petrolympics, cities choose a good amount of athletes to compete nation-wide. There are 600 athletes competing to be in the 150 athletes representing the country in Ylmeria. Here are some of the events: 

Artika.jpg

Rowing.jpg

Marathon.jpg

The Petrolympics was a huge success. All of the hotels outside of Chihiro were filled up, yet only seventy percent of the visitors and tourists attended the Petrolympics. This is probably because of the grande opening of capital city on the 20th. Even now, Petrovars have no clue what is hidden in the city. And the outside world has only seen only a small portion of the constructed city... 

Petrovar Ambassador

San Prado

 Let's take our eyes of off the capital and into its suburbs: San Prado. With a population of 5,200, San Prado is the wealthiest city in Petrova and second in Eastern Europe. The city is located south of the capital with its own state of the art athletics center. The city is heavily guarded and secured. Everyone who lives in SP earns more than 150,000 Petrovars/Dollars a year.

Update: The Mall of Petrova at the International Village

MallofPetrova.jpg

The Mall of Petrova will be the largest mall in Eastern Europe. Only the eastern part is done, and as you can see below, it is the canal plaza from pegasus(so thanks pegasus, just the right time!) When finished, this mall will be very much alike to the Dubai Mall. In fact, Project Brytyavska is often compared to whats going on in Dubai right now. The Mall of Petrova will have 1,000 shops, 70 restaurants, 7 cinemas, 10 plazas and more! 

Mall.jpg

Here is a small list of some of the stores in the mall. This is only about 1/5 of the total stores.

Americas.jpg

Milestone 2 of the americas has been done. This means that you guys get to see the americas. As you can see below, there's not that much in the americas. So if you have any suggestions to more landmarks I can put, please reply below! 

Americad.jpg

Here is the North American part of the americas. Suggestions for anymore landmarks that you think will be great in this area are welcomed! 

NA.jpg

This is the ancient city of Tenochtitlan, which is now present day Mexico City. I have tried to recreate the "floating gardens", but keep in mind that this is still milestone 2, so more things will be added and changed as time progresses. I am still searching for more stuff on the STEX, so please stay tuned. 

Tenochtitlan.jpg

Here are some nightshots of the americas. 

America1.jpg

When the CIV has been completed, every night, there will be a huge fireworks show at the lake, just like in Disney's Epcot. So here's a leaked picture of a test rehearsal:

Suggestions, questions, critiques are welcome!!

Petrovar Ambassador

 I know, I know, I said that my next update will be the International Village. Since it was Thanksgiving, I was really trying to fit in the Americas. Although its mostly finished, I still am trying to experiment with the North American part. So I apologize for making you guys wait a tad longer. I'll try to post it by the end of this week or early next week. But in replacement to this, I am going to show you the Simlympic Torch Relay in Petrova which occured on the 17th. 

torchr10.jpg 

Minogue1.jpg

Greetings.jpg

Welcome to the second day of the torch relay! We are now in Eastern Europe to watch the action in Petrova. 

Torch1-VanesUronski.jpg 

Good morning, I am Vanessa Uronski, and I will be your comentator for today as we watch the torch relay. The torch still hasn't arrived in Petrova. A little reminder that this event will take place in the old city, not the new rebuilt city. The torch is still in the Mediterranean Sea from Dimland. It should arrive any second now... 

Anyways, let's check out the route the torch will take: 

PetrovaMap.jpg 

The torch will arrive in southern Petrova in Azovo, then make its way to the capital via train. 

TransportationMap.jpg 

The torch will arrive in Chihiro at the Garos fi San Prado (San Prado Train Hub). Then head north towards the Downtown and Business Centre. From there, the torch will go to Grevershki to the Petrova Simylmpic Park. Then south to the Grapotsch Palace, Royal Palace. It will then go to the Grande Amphitheater then pass through the Olympic Complex then through the Civic Centre and then end at the Athletistadium. 

Let's now watch the action in Azovo.

At the Athletistadium, the thousands of tourists and citizens were treated to a concert from all the famous stars in the world. This is to last until midnight, however, the torch is to leave at eight to go to the Chihiro International Airport to go to Port Matthew. Here are some highlights of the concert: 

Rascal Flatts & Kelly Clarkson from the US. 

 

And the torch relay concluded with Josh Groban & Celine Dion singing "The Prayer" to wish the competitors good luck.

Here in Chihiro, we are way ahead of the schedule. It was originally planned that we should be in phase 4 by now, but we are now at phase 8. So we decided to continue on with the project. I present to you the new Chihiro International Village. It will be expanded. I have downloaded over 30 unique temples, buildings, pagodas, landmarks, and flora from the STEX to give the village a more authentic feel. SO here is a brief description of the villages:

Intro

Petrova, Kingdom of


Bienvenidos, bonjour, shalom, greetings fellow Simtropolitans! I welcome you to the Simtropolis CJ of Petrova, a country in Eastern Europe. This is my second attempt at a CJ here at Simtropolis, my other at Simsports. Chihiro, the capital city of Petrova is undergoing a massive rebuilding at an expense of atleast 500 Billion Petrovars(Dollars). So I though why not make a new CJ to go along with the new city! Along with Chihiro, you will get to see the cities of San Prado, Avenida Vista, Predeccia, Azovo, Oradea, Grevershki and Bovino.

History


Founded in the mid 1900's, the present day country of Petrova is situated in the center of the map, between Russia, Ukraine, and Georgia. Though small in size (half the size of France), Petrova has gained the cultural admiration of Eastern Europe as well as Western Asia. But everything began in the late 1800's. Petrova was founded by the future Petrovan Royal Family, Naridah and Sergei Petravo. They were a poor family who settled in present day Chihiro, the country's cultural and political center.

Soon after, the city of Chihiro was established, and prospered steadily until the world wars. The country became even more prosperous during the world wars after providing the vast Russian and allies armies with food and arms. When the technology revolution occured in the west, Petrova, like its neighbors were struggling with its economy. By the 80's, the country is home to over 40 million inhabitants. There were mass starvation, since the soil was barren and the southern half of Petrova is mountainous, until a genious farmer named Sim Bob Sim came up with the technique called "love thy soil". The idea was to water the soil with the special water found in the the Sea of Azov (now Sea of Petrova). The soil immediately became soft and allowed for farming. Around 1970, the people were fed up with the Russians not paying attention to them. The country of Petrova wasn't declared a country until the Petro-Russo Revolution in 1975.

Economy


Petrova is known for its lucious soil and therefore the ability to produce wines, wheat, rice, soy and is currently number 5 in the top exporters of lumber. Petrova has a growing middle class and is gaining wealth every year due to its exports around the world. Petrova is also known for its rare diamonds found in the Caucus Mountains.

Culture


Since the country is situated between Eastern Europe and Asia, Petrova truly is a melting pot of different cultures and people. They speak Petrovan and English and although there is 90% freedom, Roman Catholic is the prevailing religion. Although it is one of the youngest countries in the world, the Petrovan culture is very rich due to its Russian ancestry. There are numerous art, music, fashion and cultural institutions throughout the country.

Petrovar Royal Family


Petrova is a ruled by the Royal Family of Petrova and the Petrovar Prime Minister. The Petrovar Royal Family is of mixed ancestry, and the current head of the country, King Dmitry was born in Pristina, Kosovo. The Petrovar Royal Family also contributed to Petrova's diverse culture due to King Dmitry being Albanian-Kosovar, while his wife, Queen Vera is of Canadian-Filipino roots. They have two children, the Dauphin of Petrova, Prince Matthias was born in the Bovino Palace, while his younger brother, Prince Igor, was born in the Palace of Bausmik in Predeccia. Both have been sent to other countries to study, and as a result, they have brought with them, French, American, Indian, Chinese, Greek, Italian, Latin and other cultures. Prince Matthias, the dauphin of Petrova, is to be crowned king of the country.

However, there are rumors speculating about in the country as to whether there will be a rebellion for a republic. Many Petrovars have looked up to their sister, Kosovo and thought about a 'Petrovar Republic". The Royal Family has not spoken of the matter.
