What Russian Tourists Visit in Leeds?

The city of Leeds, the fifth largest city in the UK and the 30th in the European Community, is located in the county of Yorkshire, England.

First of all, tourists visit the Kirkstol Abbey — the ruins of a medieval monastery, which are now in the park. In addition, St. Peter’s Church in Leeds is a fine example of Gothic architecture of the 14th century (Leeds does not have a cathedral).

Architectural sights are also the Town Hall, the Grain Exchange and the City Museum; Many churches of the city, modern skyscrapers. Also worth visiting is the Royal Armory Chamber, transferred to Leeds from the Tower of London, and the Herwood Palace. There is a very interesting Medical Museum in Leeds.

The remaining time can be spent on walks in the numerous parks and green areas of the city: Raunhei, Temple Nyssem, the reserves of Otley Chevin and Fairburn Inge.

It is interesting to note that it was in the outskirts of Leeds that such popular breeds as the Yorkshire terrier and the Airedale Terrier, the «Terrier from the River Valley,» on which Leeds stands, were bred. And it is not surprising that the Yorkshire terrier is famous for its courage and selflessness — after all, this breed was taken out by miners for hunting rats.

In 1884, a certain Mikhail Marx, an emigrant from Belarus, began his trade in the city of Leeds. So the trading empire of Marx & Spencer, now known all over the world, was founded.
