In a unique symbiosis, London is able to maintain it's traditions while being one of the most modern capitals in the world. With icons of the monarchy like palaces, the landscape is transformed at each corner in the capital. In the East London area, such neighborhoods as Shoreditch set the trends that are followed by the rest of the world. Parks and squares with elegant buildings are always crowded with people. When taking the omnipresent tube (how they call the subway there), you just need to choose in which London you want to disembark.
