Shreveport

Photo story about Shreveport.

According to Wikipedia: Shreveport is the third-largest city in the state of Louisiana and the 113th-largest city in the United States.

In this city lives about 200 thousand people. The population predominantly African-Americans.

From 1863 to 1865 during the Civil War, the city was the capital of Louisiana.

Today Shreveport is an industrial city with developing economy. City is located close to the borders of Texas and Arkansas.

For tourists, the city is attractive for his six casinos and variety of malls. We are talking about tourists from nearby cities. Because I don’t think that one foreigner which plan to travel across America will mark Shreveport in his wishes list. But if the same foreigner would be in this city for work, then he will find something to fun in his free time.

For my opinion, Shreveport quite a small city, compare the standards of American cities, but also there you can find something beautiful to see.

Especially for you, I took a walk around downtown and photographed the most scenic place. Have a look…

P.S. As I already told in “Irony of Fate or Enjoy Your Bath!” By the Austrian and American” in an American downtown (if it is not a world-famous big cities) it is very difficult to find people which during the day walk around the city. Don’t be surprised when you will see some pictures without man on it.

City bus. City bus will bring you and your bicycle in any place.

    Hi Ellina, I met you and your friend (Vesna? I’m not sure how to spell her name) on the tour at the Garden of the American Rose Center on Friday (My 6th). I enjoyed meeting you both. I live here in Shreveport, and if there is anything else you are interested in seeing while you are here, I would be happy to try to act as a tour guide for a few local sights. Just email me.
