Bourges, a “City of Art and History”, is a beautiful medieval town. In its centre stands the Saint Etienne Cathedral, a World Heritage Monument chosen by UNESCO for its unique architecture.

Capital of France during the time of Charles VII, Bourges became a busy commercial centre in the 15th century. They were graced with the elegant Jacques Cœur palace, a popular visitors’ attraction today. The decorative arts museum, the Best Craftsmen of France Museum, the Estève Museum, the Berry Museum, and the natural history museum provide ample opportunities for discovering the province’s rich history. A city of light and music, Bourges puts on three grand annual pageants: “Springtime in Bourges”, “Summer in Bourges”, and the “Nuits Lumière”, a magnificent sound and light circuit that combines culture, tourism, and heritage.
