Located on the Leine River, Hannover is the capital and the largest city of the Federal State of Lower Saxony. Despite the fact that Hannover was founded in the 12th century, it does not look like a typical German city. Unfortunately, a large number of attractions, ancient buildings and cultural monuments were destroyed during World War II. The downtown has preserved a very small number of medieval architecture and ancient atmospheric streets that remind people of the old days.

Traditionally, the very heart of the city is the Old City Hall, next to which one can see the majestic Market Church. This church is one of the oldest sacred buildings in Hannover. This beautiful example of North German Brick Gothic architecture was built in the 14th century. The church was destroyed during World War II, but it was reconstructed over time. No less remarkable construction of the city is the New City Hall, which looks more like a castle.

When visiting Hannover, one should definitely take a walk in Herrenhausen, which is a magnificent garden and park complex founded in the 17th century. Many works of landscape art, fountains, sculptures, a castle and a greenhouse create a beautiful landscape that will impress even the most sophisticated travelers.

Nowadays, Hannover is not only the city with a rich past and a lot of interesting sights, but also the largest exhibition city in Germany, the economic and industrial center of the country, as well as one of the musical capitals of Europe.
