PostSubject: Town search   Wed 1 Mar - 7:12

Hi all,

I suggest a game : I am going to give you some information about a town and let's see who's the first one to find it.

There will be more hints each day so try to be the first one to read the hint.

The first one who will post the correct answer wins.

--------------------------------------------------------

Hint n1 : The name of this town begins by a "C"

Hint n2 : About 320,000 people live in it


Good luck.
More hints tomorrow.

cheers

The town is Craiova


Craiova : Romania

Craiova (formerly known as Krajova) is a Romanian city, the capital of the county of Dolj, situated near the left bank of the river Jiu.
Craiova is the chief commercial city west of Bucharest the surrounding uplands are very rich in grain, pasturage and vegetable products, and contain extensive forests. In the town, which is the headquarters of the First Army Corps, there are military and commercial academies, an appeal court and a chamber of commerce, along with many churches Greek Orthodox, Roman Catholic and Protestant with synagogues for the Jews.
The natural conditions Craiova has enjoyed, have favored the permanent hiring of population in this region and the succession of many civilizations: the Prethracian civilization, the Thraco-Dacian civilization, the Gaeto-Dacian civilization, the Daco-Roman civilization, the Daco-Roman-Byzantine civilization, then the Romanian one.

It may also be Cardiff

Cardiff (Welsh: Caerdydd) is the capital and largest city of Wales. Located on the South Wales coast it is administered as a unitary authority. It was a small town until the early nineteenth century and came to prominence following the arrival of industry in the region and the use of Cardiff as a major port for the transport of coal. Cardiff was made a city in 1905 and proclaimed capital of Wales in 1955. In the Census 2001 the population of Cardiff was 305,340, making it the 16th largest settlement in the United Kingdom.


Both towns have 320 000 inhabitants.
