Originally, Bordeaux thrived under the name of Burdigala as a commerce center. Its trade campaigns paid off with success and Bordeaux became very attractive to foreigners. This led to the foreign invasions and consequently, the city came under English control. The French took efforts to return the land of Bordeaux and this resulted into formation of truly French identity in the struggle for the county's uniqueness. Eventually, the English lost control over the city.
Despite the foreign presence, Bordeaux came back under French regency as an influential trading hub. Today Bordeaux is among the most prosperous French city that attracts thousands of visitors with its architecture, wine and food.
