Being one of the most prosperous parts of Germany, the city centre is always crowded by people due to a great number of first-rate shops and restaurants. Despite this fact, the center of the city is rather calm.
Every city has got its historical places of interest and monuments.

Stuttgart is situated very close to River Neckar banks and is famous for its mineral spa centre, which is one of the biggest centers in Western Europe.
