Frankfurt am Main

Frankfurt is well-known for a couple of things: large metropolitan area, largest European financial centre (major banks have their headquarters here, including the European Central Bank), gateway to trans-Atlantic flights through its airport and one of the few cities in Europe with a large collection of skyscrapers (sometimes called Mainhattan). Part of the German state of Hesse, it is close to the geographic center of the European Union and about a quarter of its population consists of foreigners (the Romanians are the 6th largest group of foreigners as of 2017). Despite this, you are quite lost if you don’t speak German. I took some photos while in a short visit and I do hope to return so as to utterly enjoy this city.
