Grenoble - such a big city next to Lyon
Grenoble (38) is a big city, located between two rivers, the Drac and the Isère (“the lion and the serpent”), and surrounded by three mountain chains, the Vercors, Chartreuse and Belledonne. It is a large academic and scientific centre with a historical heritage which includes Fort de la Bastille and The National Centre for Contemporary Art – one of the best in France. Grenoble has been known for being a host of the Winter Olympic Games in 1968.
