It seemed to us, that saturation by the information reached its apogee. Really how all this would be located in our heads?
Usually names of some cities necessarily associate with a prefix in our minds. If we hear - Orleans, we imagine - New Orleans. If we hear York, we imagine - New York. And so, we went to real Orleans, not New Orleans.

You can watch my 0 min 59 sec Video Orleans out of my Youtube channel.

The city is in a bendof Loire on a crossroads of the important trading ways.
It was arisen in days of Roman empire. The city was destroyed by Caesar and restored by the emperor Avrelian. The name of the city occured on behalf of this emperor. In the end of the Xth century the city even was the capital of the Franc state.
In 1306 Phillip IV established the university in the city which became one of the most authoritative in Europe.
During the Centenary war at the walls of the city a solving fight against Englishmen took place. A defeat in this fight meant a partition of France. The removal of the siege happened, as it is considered, owing to Divine will as which conductor was Jeanne d'Arc.

    Haha, Orléans vs New Orleans! Amazingly, I never really made any connection between both cities! I sure should have but they stand in such different areas of my mind that they did not meet!
