Knowing Helsinki – Part 1

Helsinki is the capital of Finland, a state that gained independence from Russia relatively recently, in 1917. The memory he left the Russian occupation was not very good and Finland fought a couple of times against the Soviet Union during World War II. The metropolitan area includes several neighboring towns, Espoo, Vantaa and Kauniainen, to raise more than a million inhabitants. Helsinki was founded in the sixteenth century by King Gustav I of Sweden and the Swedish influence still survives as the street names are in Finnish and Swedish.

Arles a treasure in Provence

Jueves, marzo 24th, 2011

Arles is a small and quiet city in southern France, located in the heart of Provence. Founded in the sixth century BCE by the Greeks, therefore has more than 2500 years of history, but it was during the Roman Empire when Arelate assumed the status of really important city, becoming capital of the province Gallia Narbonensis.
