TOWN PRESENTATION

Verdun. Heart of the Meuse and the World Capital of Peace. The meanders of the river quiet lull that country where the emotion comes from the rich history of a city which, by treaty and battle, has finally chosen the path of Memory and Peace.

This city is very surprising and pleasant. The Wharf in London is sympathetic with the river Meuse where cross many barges and pleasure craft.

Citadel Underground: single term recovery in Europe, presenting the lives of Hairy during the War. Discovered in "toy trains" of 15 galleries, reconstruction of a trench and choice of the Unknown Soldier. Tours in English, French, German, Dutch, Italian and Spanish.

Monument to Victory: staircase of 73 steps cut into the old ramparts of Verdun and leading to a crypt surmounted by a tower supporting a warrior. In the crypt, the books are exposed gold medalists Verdun.
