LOS ANGELES

Since its founding on September 4, 1781, Los Angeles has grown into a dynamic metropolis with its eye on the future, while preserving its extraordinary cultural heritage. LA is one of the most ethnically diverse cities in the world, making it a truly global city. The city of Los Angeles covers a total area of 1,302 km2, comprising 1,214 km2 of land and 88 km2 of water. The city extends for 71 km longitudinally and for 47 km latitudinally.

The City of Los Angeles holds many distinctions. LA is the entertainment capital of the world, a cultural mecca boasting more than 100 museums, and a paradise of good weather. From tourist attractions like the Walk of Fame’s collection of stars (numbering 2,576, and growing by one or two a month) to career opportunities like those presented in the expanding tech industry, Los Angeles is the place to be. It is the only city in North America to have hosted the Summer Olympics twice. Downtown LA is the largest government center outside of Washington, D.C.

  1. Przepiękna pocztówka! W LA mam swojego internetowego znajomego, dostałam kiedyś nawet dwie karteczki, muszę je odszukać i wrzucić na bloga :).

  2. Uwielbiam pocztówki z takimi widokami! Nie dość, że ujęcie z lotu ptaka, to jeszcze nocka. Coś wspaniałego :) Mam trochę kartek z Los Angeles, ponieważ kiedyś wymieniłam się z pewnym mieszkańcem tego miasta.

  3. Niesamowity i piękny widok. Chciałabym kiedyś odwiedzić to miasto, pospacerować po Beverly Hills i plaży w Santa Monica - uwielbiałam oglądać Słoneczny Partol :D
