If you are not alive, San Francisco will make you to live."

San Francisco is consided like the prettiest city in the USA. Native San Franciscans think of their city as a group of neighborhoods which pack an amazing level of diversity into a small area. Nowadays are 47% white, 30% Asian 13% Latino and 10% black living here. The biggest Chinas community is here (over 100 000) and Japanese the second one.One of the symbols of city is on Columbus Ave. - Transamerica Pyramid that´s hight is almost 300m. A few blocks north is Czech restaurant Prague. You can visit Alcatraz,ferry is from Pier 19. This fort was established in 1775. It was used like prisoner till l 1962. A group of 80 Native Americans manifestly occupied it in 1969.

Along harbor you can go to really beautiful Golden Gate bridge (r.1937, length almost 3 km). At both ends of bridge are parks -a great place for rest on the Pacific´s shore.
