PARIS, "The City of
Light" draped in history, tradition, culture, and glamour, has long been
a center of academia. The Seine River has long been a source of the
city's economic, political, and artistic notoriety. The two banks of the
Seine each have distinct personalities: the spacious boulevards and
formal buildings of the Rive Droite [right bank] to the north and the cultural and intellectual reputation of the Rive Gauche [left
bank] to the south. Both banks contribute to the diversity of this
magnificent city. While Paris probably has more familiar landmarks than
any other city in the world, it also has an endless amount of enchanting
nooks to be discovered.
STRASBOURG is the 9th largest city in France and host to a high concentration of cultural activities: theater, concert halls, opera, and cinema. Around 49,000 young people study in Strasbourg and contribute greatly to its dynamism and lively atmosphere.
Strasbourg also hosts three important European institutions: European Parliament, the Council of Europe, and the European Court of Human Rights. These three institutions combined with the citys proximity to several European countries make Strasbourg a very cosmopolitan city and one of the capitals of Europe. Within two hours by train or car, one can be in Switzerland, Luxembourg or Belgium. Germany can be accessed within minutes by crossing one of the many bridges over the Rhine River.
