It is a very lively and modern city with its many attractions such as darling harbour (see picture) and its huge business buildings. The Olympic Games in 2000 surely helped providing the city with a more open and modern look.

The fact that more than 250 different languages are spoken in Sydney underlines the internationality of one of the most famous metropoles in the world.
