Department Var - 9 page

Var is the department of Provence Region – the Alps – Cote d’Asur, situated on the Mediterranean coast in south-eastern France. The department includes 3 districts (Brignoles, Draguignan and Toulon) and 23 cantons. Its population is slightly over 1.0 mln people.

The department was formed in 1790 on the territory of a former Roman province of Provance.The name of the department originates from the name of the river Var (translates from the Ligurian language as ‘stream’), which has its outflow high in the mountains (1800 m) and finally flows into the Mediterranean. The river is 114 km long. As the result of the administrative reform of 1860, a part of the territory where the river Var (which gave the name to the department) flew, was passed to a newly-formed department Maritime Alps. Ironically, the river Var found itself outside the department of Var.
