Gongtan, China

Gongtan is a town in Youyang county of Chongqing city situated along Wujiang river, a branch of Yangtze river meeting at Fuling, a city in upper stream before famous Three Gorges. Although as an aged community with 1,700 year-old history, Gongtan is too old and rustic to flaunt itself and, so small too that you can hardly find it in a standard map of China. Gangtan is a rare example of nearly intact old town: most of its buildings were set up in Ming and Qing dynasties in typical southern China’s “Ganlan” tectonic style. The old town extends in a swath along Wujiang river.

Enkhuizen, Holland

Enkhuizen was one of the harbour-towns of the VOC (Dutch East India Comany) , just like Hoorn and Amsterdam, from where overseas trade with the East Indies was conducted. It received city rights in 1355. In the mid-17th century, Enkhuizen was at the peak of its power and was one of the most important harbour cities in the Netherlands. However, due to a variety of reasons, notably the silting up of the harbours, Enkhuizen lost its position to Amsterdam. Nowadays, Enkhuizen continues the maritime tradition and has one of the largest marinas of the Netherlands.

Minsk, Belarus

The Trinity Hill is the oldest surviving district of Minsk, although it's not part of the downtown, rather a suburb, hence another name, Trinity Banlieu (Traetskae Pradmestsye). The historic neighbourhood sprawls along the left bank of the Svislach River in the southeastern part of the modern city. The Belarusian 50-ruble bill features an image of Trayetskaye Pradmestsye.

The district takes its name from the Trinity Convent, of which little remains. The first Roman Catholic church in Minsk, the Ascension Monastery, the church of Sts. Boris and Gleb, and a synagogue have also disappeared. This is an area of 19th-century housing, mostly restored after the ravages of World War II. Modern buildings include the national opera and ballet theatre and the Island of Tears memorial.

Alfonso VI of Castile granted Logroño in 1095 a charter of rights that served as a model for other Spanish cities.
