The well-known American city, Chicago is the third largest city of the USA. The city is the transformational, financial, commercial, educational and cultural center of the region of the Great-Lakes. The Chicago O'Hare International Airport is the second busiest in the USA. We make a difference between Chicago, with 3 million inhabitants, and Great-Chicago (Chicago with its suburbs), which has a population of over 10 million people. Millions of people visit the downtown every day. Museum, historical memories, and alternative entertainment possibilities are waiting for the visitors.

The famous Sears Tower skyscraper is situated in the downtown, which is the tallest building in the USA. It offers a splendid view from its highest storey onto the city. It's also worth to visit the John Hancock Center, which isn't much smaller.

A further interesting sight is the Museum Campus, where three different museums are to be found. These are: the Adler Planetarium and Astronomy Museum, where a fantastic astronomical exhibition is on display; the Field Museum, which is a collection related to natural science; and the John G. Shedd Aquarium, where we might become familiar with several species of animals. If you're looking for a little rest, visit the entertainment center of the city, the Navy Pier, where you'll find an ice-skate rink, mini golf course, a Ferris wheel and merry-go-rounds.
