Melbourne is the capital city of the state of Victoria in Australia. It is the second busiest city in Australia and in Oceania, with a population of 4,7 million. Something quite curious about the city is that it has between 6 and 23 foxes per square kilometre in the urban area, even it’s difficult to see one in the middle of the city. Melbourne’s tram is the fourth largest tram in the world, with 244 km and 450 trams.... Almost the 40 % of the Melbourne’s population was born overseas (2013). People coming from Melbourne are called “Melbournians”. The largest stained-glass ceiling in the world is in Melbourne, in the Melbourne’s National Gallery of Victoria. Something also very curious is that the city has the highest number in the world of cafes and restaurants per number of people than any other city. Melbourne has also the largest Greek-speaking population outside Europe. According to the Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) Melbourne is the world’s most livable city (2011). Something quite useful to know is that under local laws, it is an offence to drive a goat or a dog harnessed or attached to a vehicle in a public space.
