Описание слайда:

San Francisco is the fourth most populous city in California where about 808,000 people live. It lies on the northern end of a peninsula between the Pacific Ocean and San Francisco Bay. San Francisco was founded in the 18th century by the Spanish. Before the Gold Rush of 1849 it was a tiny settlement. The rush brought crowds of people to the city and its surroundings. In 1906 an earthquake and then a fire destroyed the city but it rebuilt itself even into a larger city. San Francisco is famous for its hills. There are about 50 of them in the city. Some neighborhoods are named after the hill on which they are situated. A few of San Francisco’s parks and nearly all of its beaches form part of the regional Golden Gate National Recreation Area, which is visited by over 13 million people a year. It is one of the largest urban parks in the world. There are theatres and museums in the city. The most known are the Herbst Theatre, the Museum of Modern Art and War Memorial and Performing Arts Centre which includes the San Francisco Opera and the San Francisco Ballet.
