It seems that this city is far from all over the world! Every step you take is making you more and more love this place! This city can not be likened to anything, it's just like a movie. Someone is reading a book on the corner, others are drinking local beer. On the balcony of houses there are lovers behind the flowers making a French kiss. And just a little bit over there a strange passenger is walking with a dog on the bridge

These days I focused my mind on my trip to Strasbourg and its memories. The silence, beauty, and cleanliness of Strasbourg make the first mention of it. Flowers and its romantic river, which has greatly poeticized the city's atmosphere has caused me to say "Strasbourg" when everyone ask me where you loved the most. After visiting the "Rhine River" with Alex and Igor we arrived here. It was here that I slowly fell in love with Strasbourg. On the other side you can see the "Barrage Vauban" bridge, and we are going to that side. Igor is not really friendly with photography, just the opposite of me

After a romantic break under the sky of Strasbourg, my friend Igor woke me up with his tongue. And then Alex had made a lunch and I was so close to bite my left fingers while eating (because I'm left handed - Happy International Lefthanders Day) After a pleasant walk with Alex and Igor on the stones of Strasbourg, we reached this beautiful place. It was as if the water of the river had flowed down from the springs of paradise! What a pleasant sound! On the balcony of houses were full of flowers, I'd like to sit around for years and stare at them, but this time unfortunately Igor curiously needs to go

I love the architecture of Strasbourg, I don't know why, but I felt very good in this city, as if I had lived here for many years. I'm sure one of the big reasons for that was friendship with Alex. And another reason is the good people of Strasbourg as well as its beauty. In this photo you can see "Strasbourg Cathedral" which has a long story (you can read in wikipedia) It was described by Victor Hugo as a "gigantic and delicate marvel", and by Goethe as a "sublimely towering, wide-spreading tree of God". Strasbourg is chiefly known for its sandstone Gothic Cathedral with its famous astronomical clock, and for its medieval cityscape of Rhineland black and white timber-framed buildings, particularly in the Petite France district or Gerberviertel ("tanners' district") alongside the Ill and in the streets and squares surrounding the cathedral, where the renowned Maison Kammerzell stands out

The Strasbourg astronomical clock is located in the Cathédrale Notre-Dame of Strasbourg, Alsace, France. It is the third clock on that spot and dates from the time of the first French possession of the city (1681–1870). The first clock had been built in the 14th century, the second in the 16th century, when Strasbourg was a Free imperial city of the Holy Roman Empire. The current, third clock dates from 1843. Its main features, besides the automata, are a perpetual calendar (including a computus), an orrery (planetary dial), a display of the real position of the Sun and the Moon, and solar and lunar eclipses. The main attraction is the procession of the 18 inch high figures of Christ and the Apostles which occurs every day at half past midday while the life-size cock crows thrice

Sometimes you feel that humans are so bad, the world is not what you want, and all people are different from you. You don't like to see anyone anymore, don't want to be friends with anyone. U know? Have you ever had that feeling? But what is the remedy? You have to travel, just a bit more than your own home, You see humans that are even far from your mind. Alexandre is the best example of one of those people. We were friends before I traveled to Strasbourg, I traveled to Strasbourg without any expectations of Alex. But he made a paradise of Strasbourg for me from the first moment until the last moment. And now Strasbourg is the best city I've ever seen. He is one of the most brave and magnanimous men. Generous people like Alex deserve the best. I don't say this because he is one of my best friends and helped me a lot, but his personality is very lovely and bright, love for animals and living simple is not something easy to cope with. Get away, find your real friends. True humans still exist

Strasbourg is the official seat of the European Parliament. The institution is legally bound to meet there twelve sessions a year lasting about four days each. Other work takes place in Brussels and Luxembourg City. Also all votes of the European Parliament must take place in Strasbourg. "Additional" sessions and committees take place in Brussels. Although de facto a majority of the Parliament's work is now geared to its Brussels site, it is legally bound to keep Strasbourg as its official home. The Parliament's five buildings, all named after distinguished European politicians, are located in the Quartier Européen (European Quarter) of the city, which it shares with other European organisations which are separate from the European Union's. Previously the Parliament used to share the same assembly room as the Council of Europe. Today, the principal building is the Louise Weiss building, inaugurated in 1999

We sometimes need a flip to remind who we were, who we are. A flip that awakens you, something that bites us. This can be achieved by losing something, getting so depressed, Like last week I lost something and this flip made me a better guy. By the way I love this area of France #2017
