Germany - Rhine
This postcard was sent by Hanna! It's a map about the famous river Rhine (or Rhein, in german), with 1233 km lenght, one of main rivers in Europe, important for commerce and transportation, and the main cities on its riverbank. It flows into North Sea, in the city of Rotterdam, which is located the largest European seaport. The vines occupying the slopes, peaceful villages and the forty castles are the summary of the romantic Rhine landscape. In 2002, the region between Bingen/Rüdescheim and Bonn was declared a Unesco World Heritage.
