Brest France

In the majestic Brest bay, the city merges with the sea. The port, base of the French Navy for centuries, also hosts ferries and large cruise ships. 60% of the world’s oceanography researchers work in the city's institutes devoted to this field. The Oceanopolis Centre receives numerous visits throughout the year. Fair play for a city that was devastated during World War II. In case you want to learn more about the pre-war history of this city, you should visit the old Castle that is now used as a museum. Its towers and fortifications date back to the 11th century. Climb up the Tanguy tower for magnificent views of the city and its suburbs. Energetic and daring, Brest is today a lively port and university town, home to a fantastic aquarium and the gateway to the sea-swept Île d'Ouessant.
