City of the Golden Gate
• The city with the golden gate
What is San Francisco? It is a large city located on the west coast of America, in the "golden state" - in California. San Francisco grew from a small town in the large settlement just a few years in the mid-nineteenth century, thanks to the "gold rush". This city, which at times turned away fortune: it was destroyed by strong earthquakes, burned. But this is a city that never left his turbulent spirit.
In the late '60s San Francisco became the center of sexual freedom, subcultures, the hippie revolution. It is a city of computer and Internet companies, is a city with exploding real estate prices, it is a city on many hills, a town with Victorian houses, the town where not a lot of the black population, the city opposite of New York, a city of the Golden Gate city. .. can continue indefinitely. And now let's go for a walk and look around.
