History and culture

According to the archeologists, on the contemporary territory of the country the European civilization was born, namely in this area the oldest settlements of Cro-Magnon's considered to be the main revolutionary link to Homo Sapiens were found. Prehistoric area of Brittany was not affected by the Global Ice Age, and therefore from the Mesolithic period people lived here and left behind the traces of cultural and social development. From the bronze and Iron ages until the conquest by the Roman Empire, the freedom-spirited Gauls lived here. After the Romanization the Gaul was conquered by the Franks, then by the Vikings, and it returned to the normal state only under the monarch Louis. During troubled 18-20 centuries France experienced several revolutions, formation of empires, the German occupation, and on the verge of 20-21st centuries the country became one of the new leaders in Europe. Modern France is a multiethnic country where along with classical Christian beliefs Islam is actively widespread. Free views and traditions of French society as well as many attractions of the country annually attract millions of tourists.

Do you want to feel the coloring vibe of the south-west of the country?Then travel to the South canal on the outskirts of Toulouse: quiet water artery-alley peacefully flows its waters through the ages, while in the shadow of the trees you will find a true reconciliation. In the village of Alesia, the small French village, in early years the great battle took place that predetermined further development path of Europe: here, the leader of the Gaul’s surrendered himself to the young Caesar which made the latter the world famous dictator of the great empire. In the province of Brittany close to Saint-Michel and around Carnac found the megalithic constructions of predecessors of modern European civilization, the Cro-Magnon's.
