The the Tyrol is an alpine area of Central Europe.
Formerly autonomous Province, it was divided into 1919 by the treated Saint-Germain-in-Bush hammer in two distinct parts:
- the the Tyrol of North and the East ( Bundesland ), Land Austrian whose principal cities are Innsbruck and Lienz.
- the the Trentin-Tyrol of the South (or Welschtirol for Trentin), Italian area whose principal cities are Thirty and Bozen. In French, one rather tends to call this area the Haut-Adige as in Italian Alto Adige .
Name Welschtirol can be translated by the foreign Tyrol , since historically this province was foreign (italophone) if one places oneself from the German-speaking point of view.
The Tyrol extends on the chain from the the Alps, its more high summits are the Ortler (3902 m) and the Königspitze (the Tyrol of the south), the Grossglockner (3798 m) (the Eastern Tyrol) and the Wildspitze (3774 m) (the Tyrol of north). It is crossed by Inn, which is thrown then in the Danube.
Three languages are spoken in the Tyrol: the German in the Tyrol of North, the East, and the South; the Italian in Trentin; the Ladin in the Tyrol of the South.
