Strasbourg

Situated on the Grande Ile, an island in the River Ill, Strasbourg is an historic, medieval city, greatly influenced by Gallic and Germanic culture. The Old Town of Strasbourg with its bustling squares, narrow streets, half timbered houses and medieval watchtowers guarding covered bridges, is enchanting and fairy tale pretty. Strasbourg is the intellectual and cultural capital of Alsace, a region in Eastern France on the frontier with Germany. The city is also known as the crossroads of Europe ( City of the Roads) and is the unofficial seat of European power. The European Parliament, the Council of Europe and the European Court of Human Rights, are all situated in Strasbourg.
