Derry, also known as Londonderry, is a city on the Foyle River. It is the second largest city in Northern Ireland. The name Derry is an Anglicization of the old Irish name Daire, which means "oak forest". It is famous for the intact 17th century Delhi wall (with 7 doors). Inside the walls, the spiral-shaped St. Columbus Cathedral displays handicrafts from the Siege of Delhi in 1688.
Derry or Londonderry is nicknamed "Maiden City" because it is one of the few cities in Europe whose walls were not breached during the war. A city wall with such a heavy burden of history can no longer be seen elsewhere. You can feel the long history and rich culture of this city by walking along the city wall.
The City of Londonderry, also known as the Virgin City, has never been breached and is intact. After walking around and measuring, the widest part of the city wall is nearly 30 meters thick, and the thinnest part is 6-7 meters thick. A small hill is built on the slope, which saves materials and is strong.
I like to come to Londonderry very much. It’s really great here. There is a great old town here. I really like the architecture here. It really feels like walking here. It’s like going back to the ancient British Empire. Most of the buildings here are beautiful , It's really great to be here.
The history museum inside is worth visiting. It is one of the few cities in Europe whose walls were not breached during the war.
The ancient city wall is well preserved, and it is one of the few cities in Europe where the city wall has not been broken during the war.
