Liverpool - Maritime Mercantile City

Liverpool - Maritime Mercantile City

It consists of six areas that are closely associated with Liverpool's global commercial port, a port that has contributed significantly to the building of the British Empire.  This dock holds the story of the mass movement of people, slaves, and immigrants that came from northern Europe and America. The prosperity that this trade brought upon the city is reflected in the Cultural Quarter. A group of monumental public buildings was erected here in the (Neo) Classical style. The lavish St. George's Hall (middle 19th century) is the most prominent example of these. Its design is like a Greek temple on the outside, with a Roman interior.However, Today due to its modernization it has been labeled as an endangered World Heritage Site, one of only two in Europe.
