What to do
The cities are like people, have their own appearances,
characters, biographies… All that determines the essence and the
originality of the city. You’re invited to join our virtual trip to
Cambridge, great and an amazing place to visit. I’d like to begin
with some historical fact about the city.
It is interesting to know that Cambridge was founded in 875
when the Danes conquered Eastern England. They created a fortified
town called a burgh, from which the word borough derives. However
in 1010 Cambridge was burned by the Danes.
The City of Cambridge is one of the most beautiful and romantic
cities in Britain. It is situated in the quiet east of England.
Cambridge's unique setting on the banks of the River Cam, and the
magnificent architecture of the University buildings all combine to
make it an unforgettable place.
The city of Cambridge is an old English university town and
the administrative centre of the county of Cambridgeshire.
Cambridge has an area of 40 km ² and it inhabits more than 100
thousand people.
The demographics of Cambridge can be hard to measure as it
varies so much when students are away on holidays and when they
are staying in the town. Over time the population has seen steady
and significant growth – due to the expansion of the university and
natural population increase.
The town's river link to the surrounding agricultural land and
good road connections to London in the south meant Cambridge has
historically served as an important regional trading post. King Henry
I granted Cambridge a monopoly on river trade, enabling this area of
the economy to flourish.
Today Cambridge has a diverse economy with strength in
sectors such as research & development, software consultancy, high
value engineering, creative industries, pharmaceuticals, tourism and
agriculture. There are a huge number of hotels, tours, activities and
more that are specifically aimed at tourists.
Many of the world’s most influential and largest
have offices or headquarters in Cambridge, which have
huge amount of jobs and attracted skilled workers from
country and overseas. Some of the companies that call
home include: Microsoft, Abcam, CSR, ARM Limited,

The University of Cambridge is made up of thirty-one colleges;
many of them are architectural gems, founded by Kings, Queens,
bishops, noblemen and wealthy patrons. The magnificent buildings
reflect 700 years of British Heritage. The older colleges were
planned in the monastic tradition, with cloisters, courts, a dining
hall and chapel.
Cambridge University scientists formed from people who left Oxford
because of a conflict with the local people in 1207.The structure of
Cambridge University includes 31 Cambridge Colleges, and more than
150 departments, faculties, schools, and other institutions. Many
famous people were Cambridge students. Today 18,000 students study
in Cambridge.
