Strasbourg...

Situated on the eastern border of France with Germany, next to the Rhine, the city of Strasbourg grew from a Roman camp first mentioned in 12 BC. It is best known for its medieval centre, with the magnificent gothic Cathédrale Notre-Dame, construction of which began in the 13th century, being the focal point. But it is also the location of the European Parliament and various other European Union institutions.

A city of contrasts, where the old meets the new..
