San Francisco began as a city of adventurers obsessed with the brilliance of the Gold Rush and the possibility of instant enrichment. From the small settlement of Yerba Buena, it has grown to a large modern city, which today attracts thousands of tourists.
Unfortunately, everything that was built before 1906 has practically not been preserved. As a result of a large-scale earthquake, old San Francisco ceased to exist. But gradually a new one began to appear – with magnificent squares, business districts and huge parks.
There are many amazing places in the city – Pier 39 with a colony of California lions that settled right in the city limits, and a mysterious prison island, and a group of miraculously surviving Victorian mansions. In a word, everyone will be able to find an attraction to their liking.
