Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Located in southeastern Pennsylvania, Philadelphia is the fifth largest city in the United States of America, being located on the border with the states of New Jersey and Delaware. The city of Philadelphia was founded in 1682 by William Penn.

This city had an important role in the American Revolutionary War because the Continental Congress met here and the Declaration of Independence and Constitution were created in this place. For 10 years from 1790 to 1800, Philadelphia was even our country’s capital.

It is said that Philadelphia offers the largest collection of public art in America, thanks to the Mural Art program. Another point of interest for nonconformist art enthusiasts is Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens, a place for unusual and almost rebellious folk art.
