The Beatles and football at Anfield and the world's largest and most prestigious horse race, the Grand National Steeplechase. There is enthusiasm and enthusiastic spectators at the various stands in the old city is working - it's not something museal of either sports or music in Liverpool. When we visited the Beatles Story Museum or the Beatles Shop on Mathew Street, where we also find the cavern - the team that helped to make the group famous - we perceive that the nostalgic Beatlemania is alive and well. And that Penny Lane and Strawberry Fields will be interesting streets sightseeing tour - 'Forever' - along with John Lennon and Paul McCartney's Childhood Home. Liverpool is also exciting because of the Albert Dock - the largest collection of heritage buildings in England, which was opened by Prince Albert for more than 150 years ago and today stands as testimony to Liverpool's heyday in the 1800s, when it was one of world's most important port cities. Today it is home to include Tate Modern Art Gallery and Merseyside Maritime Museum - but Liverpool have seen from the sea with a ferry ride across the legendary Mersey River.

The city is one of the six unitary authorities in Merseyside. These constitute in practice a continuous urban area with a population of approx. 1.36 million, of which Liverpool has approx. 450 000 The inhabitants are called Liverpudlians or Scousers. Their distinct dialect called Scouse.

Liverpool is the UK's second largest export port. It has a good number of industries, but is affected by closures during the 20th century. Among the most famous fellow citizen, the members of the band The Beatles. Liverpool have two great football teams, Liverpool FC playing at Anfield and Everton FC playing at Goodison Park. In 2008 Liverpool European Capital of Culture.

In the center of town street Matthew Street, where one of the world's most famous venues "The Cavern Club", are located. It was here that The Beatles made many appearances, before they were famous.

Every autumn, the past few years, there has been arranged an outdoor music festival in the city. During the festival, called "The Matthew Street Festival", playing many known and unknown bands for free, at various outdoor venues around the city. The Mathew Street Festival, was canceled by the way of the Liverpool City Council in 2007.

Liverpool's probably best known landmark, is "The Pier Head" or the "Liverpool Waterfront," as it is also called. These are the three famous buildings, The Liver Building, The Cunard Building and the Port of Liverpool Building.

It was from a terminal in this area, called "The Prince's Landing Stage," that America boats of the Cunard Line and the White Star Line, went from. The White Star Line, including the ship RMS "Titanic" was later taken over by the Cunard Line. The Cunard Line, changed when, in 1934, named The Cunard White Star Line, but later changed its name back to the Cunard Line.
