Tha Ambience of Caen

The city of Caen is a destination rich in culture and history. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to this town, especially the beautiful views from different parts of the city. Caen was founded around the eleventh century and since then has played an important role in many wars, battles and conflicts, like the Hundred Years War, during which the city was invaded by the British and occupied for 33 years. During this time the University was founded. Equally or even more notable was the impact of the Second World War. The Normandy landings took place a few kilometers from the city. The city suffered bombings which killed thousands of civilians and destructed 80% of the town.

City of Caen

Caen is a city that is underestimated. Situated in Normandy, it is rich in history, as well as in business, culture, nature and the setting is incredible. If the weather is good, it is even better, but most museums are indoors, and the star of the city is the Caen Memorial, which traces the history of the great wars, and the steps toward peace in a number of different nations that were involved. Caen is definitely worth a visit. The city was founded in the 11th century, when it had an important role given its geographical situation in the middle of a war. With the English landing, Caen was destroyed and rebuilt many times.
