Hi. I deleted the following- the city itself is one of the 5 biggest cities in France, with a population of about 660,000 people including suburbs.
As I researched it and apparently Nice is the 5ht largets city in France. --MarinaKMarinaK.
Hi. I deleted this- As mentioned before, Bordeaux is known for its red wine, and has also a lot of local pastries that you cannot find elsewhere in France (if not in the world). The canneleés are only the most known example of such a pastry.
As I already mentioned the above wine and pastries in the Buy section. I have added restaurant and cafe listings to add to this section. Thanks. --MarinaK 18:27, 3 October 2008 (EDT)MarinaK.
Bordeaux districts - What is happening?
I notice that some districts have been created for Bordeaux, though the article seem to follow a large city, rather than a huge city, template and the name of the districts is not preceeded with Bordeaux/. Consequently, I am not sure if this means an attempt is being made to districtify the article or if someone is simply not following the Manual of Style. What is going on? - Huttite 16:18, 28 February 2009 (EST)
Bordeaux is the capital of what?
The article mentions that Bordeau is the capital of Centre but that link leads to a disambiguation page. Shouldn't it be capital of its department or region. What is correct? - Huttite 16:18, 28 February 2009 (EST)
Changed "capital of Centre" to "the department of Gironde in the region Aquitaine", because Bordeaux is very very far away from Centre to begin with, and the link itself didn't work either.
Living in Bordeaux I can say that some of the selected restaurants are very bad and not worth to visit.
