If you don't already know, here's a brief introduction to the city Frankfurt Oder.
Top-class culture, many shopping opportunities, history at every turn and Poland just a bridge crossing away: That is Frankfurt (Oder), the historic and at the same time young city. Border city, city of poets, city on the river: As a twin European city, Frankfurt an der Oder has a long history and a lot of culture.
The more than 750-year-old city of Frankfurt (Oder), also spelled Frankfurt an der Oder or Frankfurt/Oder, is the fourth largest city in the state of Brandenburg with around 60,000 inhabitants; it is a border town in the eastern part of the country to neighboring Poland.
Frankfurt was once a Hanseatic and trade fair city on the middle Oder, which flows below Stettin (Polish: Szczecin) behind the Oderhaff to the Baltic Sea. The city was already settled in 1226 and received city rights in 1253. The Brandenburg State University Viadrina in Frankfurt was opened in 1506.
