Old City (Officially Old City of Ojonan) is a city in the west coast of Neo Delta, in the far south of Archanta, more specifically in Astrasia. The city is home to 558,000 inhabitants who live in the city proper. Old City is the second largest city on Neo Delta, but together with neighboring towns, it forms the largest metropolitan area in the country. The population of Old City lives on the west of the Toquaho Mountains in the shore of the Ojonan Bay and is connected to the cities of Peninsula and Delta City by road. Old City, as well as the entire region, has experienced a significant growth in the past decades, changing dramatically its ancient landscape. The ojonan people have inhabited the region of Old City for more then 300 years, but the connection with the outer world only happened recently, circa 200 years ago, with the arrival of the deltese people.

Old City has a cold climate due to its latitude, but the proximity to the ocean makes it more temperate during the summers.

Name

The city is named after the first inhabitants of the area, the ojonan. As time went by, the last part of the name of left behind, although many still called Ojonan City or Old Ojonan, in order the remember the culture that founded the city.

Old City 2016 Summer Geolympiad Bid

Old City, Neo Delta has entered the bid for the 2016 Summer Geolympiad on June 28th, 2015, following the withdrawal of Villa Constitución (Ardisphere). The bid was seen as a last minute decision and came as a surprise due to the country's recent introduction to international relationships and lack of experience in hosting big events. The Neo Delta Olympiad Committee decided to promote Old City's bid due to the fact that the city hosted the previous edition of the Neo Delta Cultural Games and had built the necessary infrastructure to most types of sports.

New Transportation System

The administration of Old City, together with Neo Delta federal government, has planned a new transportation system to facilitate the transit of tourists and residents during the 2016 Summer Geolympiad that will also remain as a turning point regarding the infrastructure of Old City.
