Metz is one of the oldest European Cities. In ancient times it was inhabited by the Celtic tribe of the Midiomatrici, and so known as the City of the Midiomatrici. In Roman times it was even bigger than Paris. During the 5th century AD people started to call it Mettis, which changed later to Metz.
This place has been populated for about 3 000 years. Between the 5th and 8th centuries, the city was the capital of the famous and legendary Merovingian Kings of Austrasia. In some stories some figures are even given magical powers. In 843 it became the residence of the Kings of Lotharingia of the Holy Roman Empire and was later a semi-free Republic until the 15th century. In modern history, after the Treaty of Chambord of 1552, Metz became part of France and a strategic fortified city.
With the creation of the European Community and the later European Union, the City now lies right in the heart of the Saar-Lor-Lux European region and is a symbol of European Friendship. Today it is also called the Green City, located on the banks of the Moselle and the Seille rivers, close to the Schengen tripoint.
