Free County (Franche-Comté)Free County (Franche-Comté) is a traditional province of eastern France that shares a border with Switzerland. It is home to 11 towns that span the tranquil countryside and the Jura Mountains. Free County is known for its boundless natural beauty, its rolling foothills frequently featured in postcards along with a large section of the Jura Mountain Range. Haut Doubs and Haut Jura are particularly renowned for their scenic hiking and idyllic farming communities and have been rising stars in the ecotourism industry. Throughout the spring and summer, these Alpine regions are full of blooming wildflowers, but as winter approaches they become coated with a blanket of snow. Naturally, the areas are quite popular with hikers, photographers and nature lovers. Besançon is the region’s capital and also happens to be one of France’s best preserved historic towns and has been inhabited since pre-Roman times. The town’s most prized feature is its 17th-century citadel. The UNESCO World Heritage Site attracts many tourists each year and has helped put Besançon on the tourist map. At night, many visitors choose to stop at Casino Barriere Besançon. The mid-sized casino features a lovely restaurant along with some 145 slot machines and a few live table games for Blackjack, Poker and Roulette. Visitors must be at least 18 with a valid ID to enter the casino.
