Valencian: Where Traditional and Modern Culture Coexist

The Valencian community is an autonomous community of Spain. Being inhabited by approximately 5 million people, it has become the fourth most populated community of the country. They mainly communicate with others in a variety of Catalan. After gaining an official status in 1982, they started to implement education system and public administration. When it comes to the economy, these people mostly depend on agriculture, and give special emphasis on the cultivation of Citrus, to export them to other countries. Two international airports, Alicante Airport and Valencia Airport mainly serve this community. The Alicante Airport is mostly tourist-oriented, while the latter is responsible for driving the trade traffic.
