Introduction of Adelaide

Adelaide is the capital, business and cultural center of South Australia (South Australia). It is the largest city in South Australia, the fifth largest city in Australia, with a population of more than 1.2 million, and one of the most livable cities in the world. Adelaide is a port city along the Indian Ocean, situated on the Adelaide plain ,9.6 km north of the Ferrierian Peninsula (Fleurieu Peninsula) and east of Saint Vincent's Bay (Saint Vincent). It is a long and long city with a range of about 20 km wide and about 90 km long from the seashore to the hills, with rolling hills to the east and extensive beaches to the west.

Adelaide was named after Adelaide of Saxe-Meiningen, the Queen of William IV, which was founded in 1836 as the only freely colonized British territory in Australia. Colonel William Wright was one of Adelaide builders who designed the city and built it near the Torrance River (River Torrens). Ledt was influenced by William Payne and the pastoral city movement, the design of the city is a chessboard shape, the building area between the spacious streets and public parks. Adelaide was known for its religious freedom, political openness and civil liberties, and until the 1970s Adelaide remained a Puritan city. A series of reforms in the 1970s restored the culture of the past.

Today's Adelaide is known for its many festivals, wine, art and sports competitions, with many government and financial institutions and the largest central business district in South Australia. Adelaide have three Australian universities, namely Adelaide University (The University of Adelaide), South Australia University (University of South Australia) and Flinders University (Flinders University).

Adelaide is rich in tourist resources, the east hilly ups and downs, the west beach stretch; the city is small, surrounded by green trees, all over the architectural monuments, wide streets, gardens, cafes and restaurants; the suburbs elegant and pleasant, clean and peaceful. There is no such thing as the hustle and bustle of Sydney and Melbourne, almost no traffic jams or urban pollution. For centuries Adelaide people have maintained a simple life tradition, with historic colonial-style bars, renovated churches and modern facilities, and Victorian and Edwardian architecture as the highlights of the city. Adelaide and the state of south australia was selected by lonely planet (Lonely Planet) at the end of 2016 as the world's must-see attraction in 2017, and is the only region in australia that year.
