OVERVIEW

Brest is a military harbour located on the western point of France, in Britany. 

The weather is changing, but in summer temperatures reach to 25 °C. 

Brest has been totally bombed during the WW2, thus the architecture is modern. There are developped public transports such as bus, tramway, train, plane, bicycle, and also a cable car ! 

Thanks to the harbour that allows open-minding, Brest inhabitants are very welcoming and warm. 

Student life is pleasant, Brest is knowned as the city with the highest level of bar in Britany ! You can go to a bar called "The Dubliners" the favorite of medical students. There is also "The Guarida" in the city center or others on the harbour like "Le Tour du Monde" with a beautiful view and very busy the weekend !

About food : britain food is known in the whole country with his salted-butter, "caramel", "crêpes" and our delicious "kouign amann".

There are many beautiful beaches around Brest, a giant aquarium called Océanopolis which is nationally recognized, some little islands to visit, many magnificient places, museums and points of view, like "La Pointe St Mathieu" or the Locronan City.

To put it in a nutshell : even if Brest isn't the first choice of many students, it promises you a lot of surprises and nice meetings.
