Cologne being a city with long history is very modern and fresh. Also walking in the centre of city between its historical sights the spirit of modernity exists. It is truth that Cologne is more "modern" then "old" inspite of its long past. -- Old town was underbuilt and modernised.

In the last decade Cologne has developed from a classical industrial city into the modern service centre. Today Cologne is associated primarily with the media, trade fairs and culture. Today, Cologne is Germany's leading media metropolis with one third of all German TV productions being produced there.

    That cathedral is difficult to photograph at night, isn't it? But it is an amazing sight!

    Great opening picture, Jevgeni. I was on the other side of the river. Mariefred was freezing indeed, but a great experience. I'm preparing for Sydney now. Do you?
