Frankfurt sightseeing 30.08.2012


Image for Frankfurt sightseeing

There is no strict city border (like Moscow Ring Road, though it’s not true for Moscow anymore due to recent border enchancement). Streets are clean and I was surprised that I met a lot of tourists. Even some Russians.
Though most of the buildings are modern. Just a few blocks are from the old times (I wasn’t there yet). One of old building is Alter Oper (was built more than a century ago, but was damaged during WWII and restored only in 1980s).

Despite popular opinion that people in Europe go sleep at 8 in the evening, it's quite crowdy till about 11. A lot of cyclists, runners. Europe is being healthy :)
A couple of photos of central walking street Zeil at about 11 in the evening. It's something like Moscow Arbat, but a bit more crowdy. Though it also depends on the day; The day before yesterday it was so full, I barely could pass it. Yesterday it was just like on a photo:

There are too many wild animals inside the city. In the park right next to Deutsche Bank twin towers I met rabbits family (not just one lost rabbit, but the whole family, who lives there):

    Деревьев много вроде. Зеленый город?
    Как там с кислородом в черте города?

      Деревьев очень много. Воздух достаточно чистый, не деревенский, конечно, но жить можно =)

    Неужели Оренбург так преобразился?
