Mind if I continue #MyItchyFeet journey hereee :)...I hope you won't..
So, we had a glimpse of Strasbourg here in my previous post :).
And as I said there, one of lovely landmarks that will be too bad to miss is Petite France.
Sekarang mampir ke Petite France yuuuk..
Kawasan unik di kota Strasbourg ini memang menjadi salah satu magnet bagi mereka yang mengunjungi Strasbourg. Tidak heran memang karena area ini unik banget dan cantik dan terletak di Grande Ile, atau pulau utama, yang ada di kota Strasbourg.
Located in the Grand Ile or the main island, Petite France is beautifully stretched along the Ill river with bridges and canals.
Karena letaknya dekat dengan sungai Ill, kawasan ini jadi makin terlihat cantik lewat refleksi rumah-rumah khas dengan hiasan kayu di permukaan air. Apalagi kalau hari cerah...dapet bonus langit biru :)
I love to see the timber patterns and its sandstone bases. Pretty!
It's easy to find because the sign heading to Petite France were easily spotted as well.
Dan tidak perlu waktu lama juga untuk menikmati kawasan ini, karena memang tidak terlalu besar dan terlihat cantik dari agak jauh :)
But the history of Petite- France or Little France was a bit grim.
Why? Because it was actually built as a place to cure people with syphilis!
At that time, this disease was known as the "french disease".
I read on Wikipedia, it was called that way because it was spread by the French troops. Ooh my...
Anyway, despite its bleak background, Petite-France is still worth a visit.
Here are some our pictures taken during the visit.
Photos were taken by my hubby, Udi :)
