엄청난 기대를 가지고 가보았던 요크 성벽은 우리 나라에 있는 수원 화성 같다는 느낌이 가장 먼저 떠오른 곳이었어요. 관광객도 있었지만 편안하게 산책을 하는 노부부나 트레이닝복 차림으로 조깅을 하는 사람들도 많았습니다. 성벽을 따라 걸으며 요크 시내를 보는 경치는 꽤 만족스러웠어요. 요크에 가신다면 꼭 가봐야 할 장소임에는 분명해요. 단 너무 많은 기대는 ...
York is known as the living history of England with its rich historical and cultural heritage and well-preserved historical monuments. Like the ancient city walls of Xi'an, the ancient walls of York have become the historical witnesses of this famous city.

Its historical position is called the Great Wall of England. The entire city wall is centered on York Minster and is square in length and is about 4 kilometers long.

I am here. Britain is most like a hometown.
