Liege city center is located around the square Lambert, where he stood before the Revolution French cathedral. Lambert. Today, left after only the steel poles defining its outline. Places within a square teeming with life. On the nearby Place du Marche, is a fountain, which was a symbol of justice, a bishop, and is now a symbol of the city. It was located around many restaurants and pubs. On the left side of the building with a semicircular roof, this former church, today converted into a museum. Opposite beautiful building, which houses the town hall. It is worth to go inside, the interior is impressive. At St. Peter's Square. Lambert is also a wonderful Episcopal Palace and the underground Archeoforum. Characteristic of Liege is also a statue of Charlemagne.
Fortunately, despite the fact that in the fifties and sixties in the Liege loosely approached the protection of monuments, which resulted in the destruction of many historic houses and buildings, we have managed to halt the process. Thanks to modern Liege also has much to offer tourists. Beautiful museums, charming houses, churches or age (although in this case I must admit that in Flanders attention to the churches are much higher) testify to the long history of this historic city. Noteworthy are also attractions located a little further from the center. Charming nooks around the collegiate St. Bartholomew, beautiful narrow streets that are a haven of rest from the hustle and bustle. Kilometer path on the hill, allow you to view the panorama of the city. For fans of modern architecture a real treat will be a wonderful station, who designed Santiago Calatrava.
Liege is also a city in which we have quite a lot of Polish diaspora. They are the descendants of our countrymen who emigrated here from Poland before and after the Second World War. They are celebrating the memory of Poland to this day, meeting the Holy Mass on the occasion of the feast of 15 August. The celebration of this Polish feast takes place in the church of Cointe by Father Oblat Heller, who has been a pastor of Polonia in Liege for over 20 years. Always after the Mass, the Polonia flowers at the monument dedicated to Polish soldiers killed on the fronts of World War II.
