Philadelphia started as small European settlement in the 17th century, but soon the Swedish took over the area until 1663 when the English conquered the city. Since then it has become a location for revolutionaries and later would serve as the temporary capital of the US in 1790s. The city became the nations largest and a center for finance and culture. New buildings and roads reshaped it into the United States' first major industrial city.
Consequently, Philadelphia became a city of contrasts, where renaissance buildings sit in the shadow of 21st century skyscrapers. It is here in Philadelphia you can dine in French restaurant ''Le Bec-Fin'' and cross the road to a fast-food establishment or start your guided tour from the Independence Hall and then feast eyes on the modest Mario Lanza Museum.

It could be the diverse opposition of interests that made Philadelphia a focal point for innovations in the 20th century. Philadelphia is sometimes believed to be a birthplace of the first modern shopping center and several chains of supermarkets and discount shops. Thus, shopping in Philadelphia is more than just new dress, but a lesson in the history of the art of marketing.
