France City: Tru
Troyes City (Troyes, 78 km South Reims, 110 km south-east of Paris) is the ancient capital of the champagne region, and his appearance with characteristic graders and cathedrals can be found in many photos of the region.
The central part of the True, sandwiched between the railway station and the cathedral, is replete with amazing churches, four of which are open to the public. Business cards of the city are Saint-Pantaleon Church (XVII B., Now it contains a rich collection of sculptures), located just north the oldest church of Troy – Saint-Madelene (XII B.), Saint-Jean-O-Marsh (XIII-XV centuries., It is here in 1420. Henry V English was married with Katerina French, putting the beginning known "Shameful agreement") opposite the municipal tourist office, as well as elegant Gothic Basilica Saint Urban (XV-XVI centuries.).
On the other side of the channel of Othena, there is the most impressive museum of the city – Modern Art Museum (open from Thursday to Sunday, with 11.00 to 18.00; entrance – 5 euros), located in the old Palace of Bishops near Cathedral Saint-Pierre-E-Saint-Paul (Open daily, from July to mid-September – from 10.00 to 19.00, from mid-September to June – from 9.00 to 12.00 and from 14.00 to 17.00), whose light gothic non-bright contrasts with wonderful stained glass windows. On the other side of the cathedral and the museum, in the complex of the old abbey Saint-Loup, is located Museum of Fine Arts (open daily, except Thursday, from 10.00 to 12.00 and from 14.00 to 18.00, input – 4 euros), and just below Rue de La Cite, on the corner of the embankment comtes de Champagne, you can detect the richly decorated Pharge XVI century.
Despite the numerous fires that were a real disaster since the days of Middle Ages, Troa retained many picturesque wooden buildings, especially commonly found around the labyrinth of old streets south of the main shopping street of the city – Rue emile-zola. Interestingly, it’s the most destructive fire in the history of the city of 1524 and led to the fact that many dilapidated buildings were massively demolished, and in their place rich Renaissance palaces, which are now happy to be demonstrated by guests of the city. Among the most significant monuments should be mentioned Hotel de Mauroy (XVI B., Now here is the complex Maison De L’Outil Et De La Pensee Ouvriere), the building Museum of tools, Hotel De Vauluisant (XVI in., here now Knikota Museum and True History Museum and Champagne), and Synagoga Troua (Opened in the 1980s in memory of the Jewish scientist and theologian Rashi, 1040-1105.) and the university university institution opposite.
The basis of the well-being of True has always been trade in clothing, and today in the textile industry more than half of the city’s population. The ability to purchase clothes of leading brands directly from the factory attracts no less tourists here than historical monuments, and shopping complexes, especially numerous within the forecasts, are known far beyond the region.
