METZ, France

Metz is a city in the Lorraine region in the northeast of France. The city dates back
to Roman times and after the Franco-Prussian war it also belonged to Germany
for 48 years (1871-1919). Some decades ago the entire region was in an economic
crisis because a lot of the industrial and mining companies shut down, but since
then it has successfully diversified its economy. Today the population of the inner
city is 125.000 and the urban area has around 320.000 inhabitants.

Al photos were taken in April 2007

It's always good to see pictures of french cities, but Metz got me very, very impressed! I've already heard about this city, but I had no idea how beautiful it is... And it looks very clean, I couldn't find a single paper on the streets (at least the streets that you showed, heheh)!

Thanks for sharing! You're pics are great, as usual!

Wow, great pics and beautiful city. Is there such a thing as an unattractive French city?

Incroyablement une belle Ville! I had always thought Metz was a run-down place, yet it looks beautiful.

Must have felt strange, when Metz was german some decades ago, because it looks absolutely french! XD

It is not far away from my home town. But I did not know the city was this pretty.
