to the present; except that instead of the fountain there was an opening with tall trees and on the western side, where the flight of stairs is today, was a building was standing on pillars. The Chamber of Commerce was critical of the concept, concluding pedestrians on a lower level would produce poor business sites, an analysis which would eventually prove correct. Their own proposal the following year, developed together with various authorities, reserved street-level to pedestrians while cars were confined below ground. This counter-proposal was however produced in only two months, which made it easy for opponents to pin-down its weaknesses (mostly a failure to leave enough space for the metro which was being constructed at this time). Nevertheless, Helldén's proposal failed to impress the city as well, and Helldén together with other hand-picked experts was therefore sent on a tour around Europe, including Coventry and London, to find a better solution. In Stuttgart they could conclude that having pedestrians on a lower level required escalators, and in Vienna the pedestrians hall Opernpassage gave them the inspiration to replace the central open space at ''Sveaplatsen'' with a round restaurant with glass walls, an aesthetic device intended to give the square an architectonic dignity. junction WikiPedia:Coventry Dmoz:Regional Europe United Kingdom England West Midlands Coventry Commons:Coventry

Coventry is located in the county of West Midlands (West Midlands (county)) although historically (Historic counties of England) speaking, it is part of Warwickshire. Coventry is the 10th-largest city in England and the 12th-largest UK (United Kingdom) city overall. List of English districts by population based on Census 2011 figures, Coventry is the 10th-largest city in England and the 12th-largest city in the UK proper with a population of 316,915; after London (1st: 8,204,407), Birmingham (2nd: 1,074,283), Leeds (3rd: 750,683), Glasgow (Scotland) (4th: 598,830), Sheffield (5th 551,756), Bradford (6th: 523,115), Manchester (7th: 502,902), Edinburgh (Scotland) (8th: 495,360), Liverpool (9th: 465,656), Cardiff (Wales) (10th: 346,100), Leicester (11th: 329,627) and Wakefield (12th: 326,433). It is also the second largest city in the West Midlands (West Midlands (region)) region, after Birmingham, with a population of 329,810 in 2013. 2013 mid-year estimates from the Office for National Statistics "UK Population Estimates", ''ONS (Office for National Statistics)'' Coventry is an ancient settlement that predates Birmingham and Leicester.

Coventry is situated north of Warwick. It is further from the coast than any other city in Britain (City status in the United Kingdom). Although harbouring a population of almost a third-of-a-million inhabitants, Coventry is not amongst the English Core Cities Group due to its proximity to Birmingham. Approximately half a million people live within 10 miles (16 km) of Coventry city centre.

Coventry was the world's first twin city (Twin towns and sister cities), when it formed a twinning relationship with the Russian city of Stalingrad (Volgograd) (now Volgograd) during the Second World War. The relationship developed through ordinary people in Coventry who wanted to show their support for the Soviet (Soviet Union) Red Army during the Battle of Stalingrad. A part of the city centre at the entrance to the Lower Precinct is named Lidice Place.

Coventry Cathedral is one of the newer cathedral buildings, having been built after the destruction of the 14th century cathedral (Coventry Blitz) church of Saint Michael by the German Luftwaffe on 14 November 1940. Coventry motor companies have contributed significantly to the British motor industry. The city has two universities, the city centre-based Coventry University and the University of Warwick on the southern outskirts.
