Strasbourg is valuable French city and during my visit I`ve collected 10 of the most obvious facts and images which make a quick guide through it`s essence.

2) Strasbourg close enough to German borders, and because of this the city has many of German features.

  1. Your photos are like painting . yes Strasbourg is a beautiful town and its cathedral is the most ancient gothic cathedral of France.
    But it looks the center toxwn is almost desert . As you say the cars envade all and there are not much pedestrians .

    1. Thank you for the comment, Michel. At the time I`ve visited Strasbourg it was a bit cold and rainy, may be that`s why people were not show up. I hope than when it comes to warm season people will go out on the streets)
