The city of Oxfordshire is 80 kilometers from London in the Oxfordshire Territory. The city is known for its unique architectural project, the University of Oxford, founded in 1117. It gained its true recognition during the reign of Henry II, when it attained its official status as a university city.

Most of the buildings in the city are in the old style, and the university grounds are a large rectangular shape, It is also home to libraries, museums, cemeteries, cemeteries, churches, and other buildings.

The largest college in Oxfordshire is the Church of the Cross, built in the mid-16th century during the reign of King Henry VIII. The main attraction is the Gergely bell of Old Tom, which rang every night and announced the return of the monks of Oxfordshire Cathedral to the College grounds. Not far from Creighton Church is Magdalene College, founded in 1458. Every May 1 at 6 a.m., the local choir convenes and performs a local hymn, which dates back to the 17th century.

The Ashmole Museum at the University of Oxford is the oldest institution of its kind in Britain. The museum was created in 1683 to preserve the outstanding works of art. Its galleries are enhanced by works by Michelangelo, Leonardo da Vinci, Faio, Rafael, Ouchello, Picasso and other masters of the past centuries. Among other artifacts, the museum keeps ancient rings and stone figurines of the Minoan era, the Porcelain marble, and the famous Stradraddle. Fans of the Middle Ages will be able to see the unique arms and armor of the 10th-17th centuries, as well as a collection of ancient English coins.

Modern Occidental Oxford has an unconventional appeal and a Middle Ages fascination. Most of the citys buildings are adorned with elaborate grotesque stone figures depicting mythical wonders. On the whole, the exterior of the Oxford is reminiscent of good old England, with an enormous number of ancient buildings with uppermost chapels of many towers.

An integral part of the citys landscapes are the daily gazebos and gazelles, which are cared for on a daily basis, It keeps them in perfect condition, making the capital city of Oxfordshire look like a very green and clean city.
