The university city of London

London has 7.5 million inhabitants and is the capital of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. The city stretches 45 kilometers along the River Thames in south-east England on the island of Great Britain. Because it is in the temperate zone, summers are never too hot, with a few exceptions, and winters are never too cold, with temperatures rarely falling below freezing.

There is so much to see in London, such as the British Museum in Bloomsbury with over six million exhibits or the National Gallery in Trafalgar Square. Other well-known museums and exhibitions include Madame Tussaud’s Waxworks and the National History Museum. One can also visit the residences of the royal family such as St. James’s Palace, where the Prince of Wales lives, or Buckingham Palace with the world-famous ritual of the Changing of the Guard, the Queen’s residence in London.

Interesting buildings are Saint Paul’s Cathedral, the Tower of London or the London Bridge. It stands on the site of the only bridge that crossed the Thames in the city until the late 18th century. The most famous tower is the 98 meter high bell tower with Big Ben, part of the Palace of Westminster, the seat of the English Parliament. Hyde Park is one of the most popular parks in the city with Marble Arch and Speakers’ Corner. It used to be called the “lungs of London”. Nothing really needs to be said about the nightlife and shopping opportunities in the metropolis, there are countless options for every taste.
