Philadelphia ranks among one of the most economically strong metropolitan areas in the USA and is also one of the oldest and most important cities in the country. The city is the birthplace of the USA: in 1776, the declaration of independence was proclaimed and the constitution of the United States of America was enacted here in 1787.
Philly, as the city is affectionately named by its residents, is rich in US history yet at the same time a modern, vibrant metropolis full of surprises. If you want to find out more about the charm of this city, we recommend this article:
