City of Festivals
Situated on the confluence of the rivers Ouse and Foss, York has witnessed an abundance of major political events throughout its two millennia of existence. This tourist-oriented city offers a wealth of historic attractions, as well as a variety of cultural and recreational activities. York was once the capital of the Roman province Britannia Inferior, and in the Middle Ages grew into an important wool-trading hub. Today, this relatively small urban center is one of the most popular places to visit in England, nicknamed the "City of Festivals" because of its busy calendar of cultural events. The roads within the old city center are pedestrianized, making sightseeing on foot or by bike a breeze. York is in North Yorkshire.
