    Due to a series of non-related facts and events, Dallas has gained a certain notoriety that has nothing to do with the city’s essence: many Americans relate

    Dallas with the assassination of J. F. Kennedy, Western Europeans might think of it as populated by cowboys and Texan rangers, while Easter-Europeans will always imagine Dallas in the same way it was depicted by the ’70 homonymous TV series.
