Victoria City

You arrive in Victoria at Old Bradford airport, built in 1958, and its name is an homage to the architect of the airport

Near the airport only building houses is permitted, since the number of tragedies decreases considerably in places where this practice is adopted (oh really?!)

Another image of the airport area. This neighborhood is Old Bradford, in reference to Bradford airport.

In the city downtown, we face the immense town hall and its gardens.

Still in the Downtown, got some pictures of the amazing buildings built there.

Another very busy area and even sought after by tourists, is Countrytown neighborhood, which has a very particular style, where the trade all over the world have settled in large fairs.

Finally, we come to the neighborhood considered the most sympathetic of Victoria City, the Kingsveil neighborhood. The name of the neighborhood, residents said, comes from the surname of a well known family in England who moved to the place, lifting the first of mansions hereafter arise there.

Bridges are also strong attractions in Victoria. Here we see the Polden Gate, which connects the Industrial Island to Kingsveil, and Metal Bridge that connects Old Bradford to Industrial Island.

Kingsveil at 3 o'clock in the morning is awake only those who have insomnia or else who is partying, because the neighborhood is very quiet.

I got an awesome picture of part of Kingsveil and another nearby town, Lime City, the sunset is really spectacular.

I'm showing in the following images the more modern part of town with three shots, one of 10:00 am, one at 06:30 pm and another at 10 pm.

Let us now see the old part of the city, which is connected to the modern part through the "Tacoma Narrows Bridge", at the same times: 10:00 am, 06:30 pm and 10:00 pm.

There are many churches in Tacoma, but the main one is this:

Not far from the city center, which lies between the "Tacoma Narrows Bridge" are the quietest, neighborhoods full of homes that now, going into the spring season, are watching the snow slowly melt.

There is a very famous convention center in Tacoma.

The University of Tacoma is highly regarded worldwide. And the university reserve 20% of their places for exchange students.

Flashy and beautiful buildings are the ones that draw attention in Tacoma, a region that has its -20 degrees in the winter has a curious record in the Guinness Book, the city of the planet that has more heaters per square mile.

For the flow of tourists and even natives, giant airports are kept at a distance from the centre, taken by skyscrapers. Next to them there are several theaters and even schools, strange but true.

That's Tacoma City, hope you like it.
