One of the most interesting cities that I have visited is London. You cannot get bored of this city. When you move from West to East or North to South it seems that you are traveling from one country to another. Some streets are so narrow that you can barely see the sky. The city contains several world heritage sites and historical places no matter where you go, you can travel back hundreds of years. Its history and culture will be transfered to the next generation, shaping up their beliefs and mentality. While London is often remembered and advertised for its historical sites, it has emerged as a major metropolitan city in Europe with new developments in and around the city. It is a city of art, museum and fashion.
