Xaviera: Hey guys! I’m Xaviera. I am pleased to have a News Sharing presentation today. The topic is How a French city became the European capital of silk, which was from Euronews, posted on 08th September, 2021. Xaviera: First, let's take a look at the city of Lyon, which is an important industrial city and the most important science and education center in France. It is a cultural and artistic center in Europe, known for the silk trade. Xaviera: Next, this is the local customs. A different style of France is silk, In Lyon, the 13th century building sits at the foot of a hill and feels as if history has been piled on top of the town. Xaviera: Architecturally, I really wanted to explore the labyrinth of secret passageways in Lyon, as you can see, the center was silk, as a busy place of work, which went through three different revolutionary periods. Xaviera: And then there's the history part. In the Middle Ages, silk was expensive and was used by the highest classes of society as a symbol of wealth and status. By the 16th century, Lyon had become the silk trading capital of Europe. Xaviera: Last but not least are the humanities. For the workers of Lyon, silk was as much a part of daily life as coffee and croissants are today. Xaviera: Therefore, in the Middle Ages, Lyon's silk was almost universally known. At that time, the silk was also introduced to such powerful countries as UK and Rome. Xaviera: Let’s have a look at the culture in Lyon. Xaviera: This is the connection of station in Lyon to Paris, which is the largest rail hub in France. Paris Lyon Station is located in the southeast of the city of Paris. From this station, you can travel to most parts of southeast France, as well as the neighboring Geneva. Xaviera: Anyway, our reflection is: China Suzhou silk once brilliant world, its development has been difficult. Lyon, as the western terminus of the ancient "Silk Road", is also a road of development. Lyon became the silk capital of Europe mainly because of its "revolution" focusing on talent cultivation, art design and technological innovation. We also hope that the China-France Silk Road will become a new bridge for ChinaFrance exchanges and promote the spread of the Eurasian culture of peace along the Silk Road.

Which city do you like best? Free answering, please. It’s doesn’t matter. So, for me, Personally, I prefer Lyon, because France is a culturally mixed country in Europe. Its capital, Paris, is also a magnet for travel enthusiasts from all over the world. But Lyon's culture is more valuable than Paris's landscape. In particular, it became the Silk State of Europe, adding to the glory of France. I think this is more worthy of being liked and admired by the world.
