WIth 770,000 inhabitants, Strasbourg ranks among the 10 biggest urban areas in France, and is definitely one of the most dynamic cities in the North-East. Obviously, as it hosts the European Parliament as well as numerous international organizations, it was dubbed the "Capital city of The European Union". It is no wonder that Strasbourg has so many hotels fully equipped for group accommodation. Let's take a tour of the main districts. Strasbourg's throbbing heart is located in a medieval ellipsis-shaped island around the Ill river, including such landmarks as the gothic Cathedral and Place Kléber. Westwards from the inner centre, you get to the Central railway station district, which mixes ancient with contemporary architecture. Southwards, Krutenau and Esplanande are both lively student districts. On the Western tip of the on the historical "island", which ranks among Unesco's World Heritage spots, the picturesque "Petite France" quarter casts its spell on tourists, with its canals, half-timbered houses and "winstub" restaurants. Eastwards, on the opposite side, the "Conseil des Quinze" area is encompassed in the Imperial "Neustadt" district, an expansion that was created at end-XIXth century. It harbors the European institutions - Parliament and Council - and the Orangerie Park; the city's biggest green area is posh and sought-after. Even farther East, Wacken is a developing international business area hosting the city's Convention and Exhibition Centre.
