London is the capital of the United Kingdom and with over 3.3 million inhabitants the most populous city in the EU. London was first mentioned in 50 A.D. and was already an important trading city in Europe in the Middle Ages. Until 1925 London was the largest city in the world and still is one of the most important cities on the planet. Today London is one of the most important cultural and economic centres in the world. After Bangkok, London is the most visited city worldwide with over 19 million tourists per year. The city on the Thames attracts visitors with its dozens of theatres and opera houses, which are mainly concentrated in the West End.
