Strasbourg, France – One of Europe’s Great Capital Cities

Published Date Author: , September 16th, 2012

The Council of Europe, the European Parliament, the European Court of Human Rights, the Eurocorps and other institutions all have their seat in Strasbourg.

But this is no coincidence: after World War II the Council of Europe was encouraged to settle specifically in this border town, which had for centuries suffered considerably under the so-called “traditional Franco-German enmities.”

Now it was to become a place of reconciliation and friendship and at the same time the symbol of a unified Europe. The largest city in the Alsace region (280,000 inhabitants) can by rights be called a Capital of Europe.
