France - moving around the country
In France, buses are considered to be an excellent means of transportation, not only for intercity travel, but also for intra-city travel. In large cities, you will find almost at every stop a timetable which indicates the time of departure of the train you are boarding as well as other departed trains. Prices for trips vary based on the destination and season. It should be noted that in different regions there are separate transport network of buses or trams, with each having its own unique pricing system. You can buy tickets from the driver or in the newspaper kiosks. Please note that in the capital of France you can move about by using underground trains. The Metropolitan has 17 main branches that connect all areas of Paris, as well as 5 suburban branches that go beyond the capital.
Nature and parks of France
The longest river in the country is the Loire, flowing through the entire central part of France. Its length is just over one thousand kilometers. Historically, it played a strategically important role in the life of the state. Along the river Loire in its picturesque valleys, in the Middle Ages were built more than 70 castles. Many of them at different times were the residences of French kings. The Loire Valley is inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List due to the huge number of monuments of architecture and history. One of the largest lakes in the country is the Lake Geneva, along which the border with Switzerland runs. Surprisingly, picturesque views of Lake Geneva have given inspiration to many creative people from around the world.
