New Haven

The small and almost forgotten city of New Haven with 130,000 inhabitants is located on the shores of Long Island Sound in Connecticut. Although the city is not large, covers an area of 52.4 km2, it is the third largest city in this US state. New Haven is famous for one of the most famous universities in the world – Yale University, which is based here. Almost a third of the buildings in the city belong to the university and we know them by their Gothic architecture. The university keeps New Haven in the limelight.

Yale was founded in 1701, but was originally based in Killingworth, only in 1716 was it moved to its new location in New Haven. Yale University is considered one of the best universities in the United States. It was founded in the manner of the old British schools at Oxford and Cambridge. Over time, it grew to 12 tracks. The city’s culture is also closely connected with the city’s university. Everything revolves around the university, which is why many houses and institutions are named after it. Sprague Memoriam Hall – the site of Yale Schoul of Music. Just a short distance away is the Schubert Theater, where theatrical student productions take place before the main premiere takes place in New York.

Today, the university has 2,300 employees and 11,390 students. Its campus covers an area of 1.1 km2. The mascot of the school is a bulldog named Handsome Dan and the traditional color is blue. The school got its name from the first patron Eliaha Yale, who in 1716 donated a significant amount of money and a number of books. To date, a number of celebrities have passed through the university. After graduating from university, they were prepared for the next life and took up all conceivable fields. Among the most famous Yale University graduates are Eli Whitney, Samuel Morse, Charles Goodyear, writer Noah Webster, Presidents William Howard Taft, George Bush and Bill Clinton.

Nevertheless, the main credit for the city’s prosperity and prosperity came from industrialization, which over time made it a port and trade metropolis. Even today, there is an important port. In addition to the university, churches are also typical of the city, which is blessed here. Among the most important are the three: Center Church, United Congregational Church and Trinity Church. Churches are a symbol of the city and characterize it. Thanks to them, we can learn more about the development of religion in America. In one of the university buildings there is a museum of prehistory, where you can see real dinosaur skeletons. The city is the venue of a prestigious tennis tournament every year. The 43rd President of the United States, George W. Bush, was also born here.
