QUEZON CITY

Quezon City is the largest city in Metro Manila as well as the largest city in the Philippines. Recently, it has become the hub of information technology as well as its entertainment industry in the Philippines. The city was named after former Philippine president Manuel Luis Quezon y Molina. Quezon City was the country's capital from 1946 until 1972, when the seat of government was officially returned to neighboring Manila.

 Quezon Memorial Park. Built in memory of President Manuel L. Quezon, it is in front of the City Hall of Quezon City and is a favorite prominade for Sunday strollers

Quezon Memorial Park. This quiet park of trees and lawns was developed in honor and in memory of the late president Manuel L. Quezon. A marker fenced by concrete and set on a circular cement platform serves as a landmark of Baler, the birthplace of Quezon. A replica of the house where Quezon grew up could be found at Quezon Park. The park now serves as a public recreation center and a place for remembering the great leader.

  1. Nie wiedziałam, że Quezon przez pewien czas było stolicą Filipin. Ale jak widać, przenoszenie stolicy nie zawsze zdaje egzamin.

  2. Filipiny od zawsze kojarzyły mi się z Manilą, a tu proszę jednak była inna stolica. Sama pocztówka niezbyt przypadła mi do gustu, niestety z Filipin wolę chyba bardziej naturalne widoczki :)
