Marseillaise – French national anthem
This is where the national anthem of France, the Marseillaise, was born. It is a song sung by a battalion sent to Paris after the outbreak of the French Revolution.
Currently, Marseille is an unusually colorful and lively city. It is a mixture of people of different races and nationalities. Entire districts are inhabited by immigrants mainly from the countries of Black Africa and North Africa. Unfortunately, the city is also very dangerous.
