Hannover is a city in Northern Germany, the capital and the largest city of Lower Saxony. It is noteworthy that Hannover does not look like a typical German city, despite the fact that it was founded in the 12th century. Most of the original attractions, ancient buildings and cultural monuments were destroyed during the Second World War. The historical center has preserved very little medieval architecture. It consists of a few very charming streets with the Market Church and the Old Town Hall in the middle.

Almost half of the city's territory is occupied by parks, forest plantations and water reservoirs. The ensemble of the royal gardens of Herrenhausen, founded in 1674, is the only baroque garden and park ensemble in Europe that has retained its original appearance since the time of its creation. The city center houses an artificial lake Masch – a great place to relax in the fresh air. Pleasure boats travel from the shore every hour.

The most popular sights of Hannover include the New and Old Town Halls, the Marienburg Castle, the Hannover Opera House, the Sprengel Museum, which features works of art from the 1900s and 1930s (Picasso, Klee, Malevich, Kurt Schwitters), the Kestner Museum with Greek and Egyptian art, works of ancient Romans and Etruscans, as well as handicrafts, ranging from the Middle Ages to our days, the Museum of Lower Saxony.
