STRASBOURG

Strasbourg is the largest city of the Alsace region in the east of France. The European Parliament, and the European Court of Human Rights, are in Strasbourg. Rouget de Lisle wrote the national anthem of France, “La Marseillaise,” in this city. Strasbourg, which has the nickname “La Petite France,” exemplifies the symbiosis between French and German cultures. The Strasbourg Cathedral, which was called “a prodigy of the gigantesque and the delicate” by Victor Hugo, and the Alsace Museum, which contains more than 5 thousand artifacts, are noted sites of the city. In Strasbourg, the streets are named after crafts. Kammerzell houses, which are among the finest examples of wood carving, face the Strasbourg Cathedral in all their glory.
