London, England, June 2017

Standing on the River Thames in the south east of the island of Great Britain, London has been a major settlement for two millennia. It was founded by the Romans, who named it Londinium. London's ancient core, the City of London, largely retains its 2.9 km2 medieval boundaries. London has a diverse range of people and cultures, and more than 300 languages are spoken in the region. —From Wikipedia.
