Hello guys !
Just sharing some pictures of my city Strasbourg, in France ! I guess most of you must know this but Strasbourg hosts European institutions such as the Parliament, Council of europe, Human Rights etc. It became a symbol of Europe's reconciliation after WWII, so in the 1950's.
It's a small city of nearly 300 000 inhabitants and more than 700 000 inhabitants for the urban area. The city has a natural border with Germany which is the Rhine river, and it was multiple times German, therefore a part of the city called "Neustadt" (the new city) was built under German empire.
Now the city center and the Neustadt are both part of the UNESCO World Heritage sites
The city is famous not only for its architecture but also for its extansive transportation network (for a city this size), 5 lines of tramway and one line of BRT, and has more than 500km of bicycle paths !

So let's start with the basics, the historical centre :
This picture was taken during the blue hour in a neighborhood called "La Petite France" which is famous for its canals
This one, (which was my highschool), is in the Neustadt it was built in 1902 and integrates elements from the Art Nouveau movement.
Here is a cinema in the city centre which was built in 1948 :
I'll continue later with other pictures of other parts of the city, I hope you'll like it
