Strasbourg in bloom by mamba
Clear

Strasbourg, France. Taken along one of the canals in this beautiful Alsace town.

Wikipedia:- Strasbourg’s historic city centre, the Grande Île (“Grand Island”), was classified a World Heritage site by UNESCO in 1988, the first time such an honor was placed on an entire city centre. Strasbourg is fused into the Franco-German culture and although violently disputed throughout history, has been a bridge of unity between France and Germany for centuries, especially through the University of Strasbourg, currently the largest in France, and the co-existence of Catholic and Protestant culture.
