Visiting Atlanta

(Atlanta, Georgia - GA, USA)

Atlanta is a vast and pleasant city, often known as the unofficial capital of southern USA. Much of Atlanta was redeveloped and revamped when the city hosted the hugely successful Olympic Games in 1996, which has given Atlanta a truly cultural and modern appearance.

However, the city of Atlanta still retains much of its historic charm, contrasting with glass-clad skyscrapers, large sporting venues and a bustling financial center.
