Study tours to Chicago
Chicago, situated on Lake Michigan is the largest city in the state of Illinois. The city offers a wealth of study-related experiences, including distinctive architecture, world-famous museums, parks and vibrant neighborhoods.
Along with Chicago's history as a jazz city comes its historical reputation as a gangster city. Though the Mafioso environment has declined since the old days, it’s not hard to imagine the timeless atmosphere of cigar smoke, soft hats, and shady deals. In certain parts of the city, there are still remnants of the infamous gangster era of the 1920’s and 30’s.
At the same time, other parts of Chicago are incredibly modern, with huge skyscrapers and other impressive architecture. As a matter of fact, the skyline of Chicago is one of the tallest in the world. We recommend that you check it out from one of the informative boat trips on the Chicago River. Apart from an abundance of skyscrapers, the city also has beautiful churches and amazing museums. The city’s parks are outstanding. Specifically, Grant Park and Millennium Park offer wonderful city life, a great metropolitan atmosphere, and views of the city's great skyline.
In Chicago, there is a special elevated railway known as "The Loop" on which the railway drive overhead. With their significant rattling sounds, you will be reminded of the many movies and television scenes that have been filmed in Chicago.
