MY CITY WATERLOO

Today I will show you Waterloo where I live. It became famous as here ended the battle between Napoleon and Wellington and his alleys.



The church where once the wounded soldiers were brought



The new City hall



The Wellington museum, where Wellington slept and signed the end of the battle



Streets and shops




In spring the Japanese cherry trees bloom everywhere and all along the main street flower pots are hanging.


The Gallery Wellington



and opposite the "New Gallery"



We even have a cinema



A music Academy



and an Exposition hall which is called "Les ├ęcuries" (the stables)



it is surrounded by a beautiful park.



a little more outside is another park to walk around



For the British inhabitants there is a store with only British products.



There are lots of restaurants in Waterloo



and an Office park




Every two years after the re-enactment of the battle, the streets of Waterloo look like this !

Wonderful tour... Of a place, which I will never visit in person.

Thank you!!!

And the link looks delightful too... To tours of other cities. Cool idea. Somewhat similar to Daily Photos From One's City. Or whatever that blog, is called now.

I would love to visit Waterloo one day :) Some friends of mine recently visited for the Battle of Waterloo and they all said they had an amazing time! I'm a historical re-enactor from that period as well and I think it would be great to visit in costume one day and sort of relive that time.

Great photos and thank you for sharing your city with us :)
