Warwick [wɒɹɪk] (the second W in the name is not spoken) is a town in the English county of Warwickshire on the River Avon and has 25,434 inhabitants (as of 2001). It belongs to the District Warwick. Due to a well-preserved castle in the city area, Warwick Castle and the historic buildings in the city center (a mixture of Tudor and 17th-century), the city is visited by a large number of tourists. However, the University of Warwick is located in Warwick not, but on the outskirts of Coventry. The confusing naming can be explained by the fact that an attempt was made in the establishment of the university in the 1960s to give the young university by an associated in England with a long tradition names more prestige.
