Z - Zaragoza, Spain

 

Zaragoza, also called Saragossa in English, is the capital city of the Zaragoza province and of the autonomous community of Aragon, Spain. It is situated on the river Ebro and its tributaries, the Huerva and Gállego, near the centre of the region, in a valley with a variety of landscapes, ranging from desert (Los Monegros) to thick forest, meadows and mountains.

 

The population of the city of Zaragoza in 1 January 2010 was 699,755, ranking fifth in Spain. The municipality is home to more than 50 percent of the Aragonese population. The city lies at an altitude of 199 metres above sea level, and constitutes a crossroads between Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, Bilbao and Toulouse (France) — all of which are located about 300 kilometres (200 miles) from Zaragoza.

 

Zaragoza hosted Expo 2008 in the summer of 2008, a World's Fair on water and sustainable development.

 

The city is famous for its folklore, a renowned local gastronomy, its trilogy of landmarks (the Basílica del Pilar, La Seo Cathedral and the The Aljafería Palace). Together with La Seo and the Aljaferia, several other buildings form part of the Mudéjar Architecture of Aragon which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Fiestas del Pilar are among the most celebrated festivals in Spain.

Tourist Shops all over.

I had a railpass around Western Europe at the time, but this little challenge included a trip on a coach through the beautiful Pyrenees.

Bruges (Dutch: Brugge) is the capital and largest city of the province of West Flanders in the Flemish Region of Belgium. It is located in the northwest.

 

The historic city centre is a prominent World Heritage Site of UNESCO. It is egg-shaped and about 430 hectares in size. The area of the whole city amounts to more than 13,840 hectares, including 1,075 hectares off the coast, at Zeebrugge (meaning "Brugge aan Zee" or "Bruges on Sea").

 

Along with a few other canal-based northern cities, such as Amsterdam, it is sometimes referred to as "The Venice of the North".

 

Bruges has a significant economic importance thanks to its port. At one time it was the "chief commercial city" of the world.

 

800px-Panorama_beginenhof.jpg

 

 

And last but not least, Bruges is also a football town, represented by two teams in the Jupiler League. Club Brugge KV 001.gif and another team that is not worth to be mentioned. :)

Home ground is the Jan Breydel Stadium, which has a capacity of 30000.

In 2000 Bruges was one of the eight host cities for the UEFA European Football Championship.

O - Olomouc, Czech Republic

 

Olomouc is a city in the east of the Czech Republic. The city is located on the Morava river. Olomouc contains several large squares,

the chief of which is adorned with Holy Trinity Column, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

The most prominent church is the Saint Wenceslas cathedral. In the end of the 19th century it was rebuilt in neo-Gothic style, but it

kept many parts from the original church, which had also been rebuilt many times. The Saint Maurice Church, a fine Gothic building of

the 15th century, and the Saint Michael's Church are also worth mentioning.

The principal secular building is the town hall, completed in the 15th century, flanked on one side by a gothic chapel, transformed now

into a museum. It possesses a tower 250 ft (76 m) high adorned with an astronomical clock. Olomouc is also proud of its six Baroque

fountains.

Quebec (or Quebec City) is the capital of the Canadian province of Quebec. It is the second most populous city in Quebec.

 

Founded in 1608 by Samuel de Champlain, Quebec City is one of the oldest cities in North America. The ramparts surrounding Old Quebec (Vieux-Québec)

S - San Francisco, USA

 

San Francisco is the fourth most populous city in California and the 12th most populous city in the United States.

 

In 1776, the Spanish established a fort at the Golden Gate and a mission named for Francis of Assisi on the site. The California Gold Rush in 1848 propelled the city into a period of rapid growth, increasing the population in one year

from 1,000 to 25,000, and thus transforming it into the largest city on the West Coast at the time. After three-quarters of the city was destroyed by the 1906 earthquake and fire, San Francisco was quickly rebuilt, hosting the

Panama-Pacific International Exposition nine years later. After WW II, massive immigration, liberalizing attitudes, and other factors led to the Summer of Love and the gay rights movement, cementing San Francisco as a center of

liberal activism in the United States.

 

Today, San Francisco is a popular international tourist destination, renowned for its chilly summer fog, steep rolling hills, eclectic mix of Victorian and modern architecture and its famous andmarks, including the Golden Gate

Bridge, cable cars, and Chinatown. The city is also a principal banking and finance center, and the home to more than 30 international financial institutions.

 

The city's large gay population has created and sustained a politically and culturally active community over many decades, developing a powerful presence in San Francisco's civic life. The most popular destination for

gay tourists internationally, the city hosts San Francisco Pride, the largest and oldest of the world's pride parades.

U - Utrecht, the Netherlands

 

Utrecht is the fourth largest city of the Netherlands and the capital of the Dutch province of Utrecht.

 

Utrecht's ancient city-centre features many buildings and structures from the early Middle Ages. It has been the religious centre of the Netherlands since the eighth century.

Until the golden age, Utrecht was the city of most importance in the northern Netherlands (the present-day country of the Netherlands, excluding Belgium and Luxembourg), until

Amsterdam became the cultural and populous centre of the Netherlands.

 

Utrecht is host to Utrecht University, the largest university of the Netherlands, as well as several other institutes for higher education. Due to its central position within

the country it is an important transportation hub (rail and road) in the Netherlands. It has the second highest number of cultural events in the Netherlands, after Amsterdam.
