GERMANY ~ Cologne - UNESCO ~

... Pretty views of one of the oldest and today also the fourth largest city in Germany... the Cathedral of Cologne is the main symbol and the single most visited landmark in the country... it's the third-tallest cathedral in the world and it took 632 years to build... a UNESCO WHS site... the city is a major cultural centre for the Rhineland... it hosts more than 30 museums and hundreds of galleries... Thanks a lot Johan!!【ツ】→

Cologne is located on both sides of the Rhine, near Germany's borders with Belgium and the Netherlands.

The name Cologne derives from the German name Köln, which in turn comes from the Latin word Colonia from the Roman name of the city (founded in 38 BC)—Colonia Claudia Ara Agrippinensium.
