From the East on the West Paris Seine. The island to Zita on the river – a historical cradle and the downtown, its development began from here. On the island the well-known Notre Dame de Paris – a brilliant example of Gothic architecture of the XIII century towers.
In the east of the Massif Central where Son's river merges with Rhone, the second-large city of France – Leon is located. The Mediterranean port Marseille concedes to Leon on number of inhabitants only a little. Marseille – seaport of the country, the first on goods turnover.
In France there are a lot of underwater rivers. The toiler Senga, patiently laying a way to the ocean, bears a never-ending chain of self-propelled barges. Rough Rhone aspiring to the Mediterranean Sea is fed with water by the Alpine glaciers.
