Each city has its own character, language, signs and stories — the ones that shape its true look. Earlier this year, we talked about the real stories of the city with people on the streets. They are not necessarily popular and sometimes even anonymous, but have become emblems of the city or created the places that have become symbolic for it.
Discover the true stories of the city in a project we created in partnership with Ballantine’s.
