The oldest German city is Nuremberg, located in Bavaria on the banks of the River Pegnitz.

The earliest settlement in modern Nuremberg – the fortified city of Grasburgburgdelach – founded in 1021. The first record of Nuremberg itself is 1050, though surveys indicate a settlement much earlier than that date. The basis of the settlement – the fortress, around which the merchants, tradesmen and servants of the castle settled. The fortunate location of the castle made it the seat of the rulers of the Holy Roman Empire. The capitals status, of course, had a great influence on development in spite of various military events. Of great importance to the economic growth of the city was the reverence for the relics of Saint Sabbald, an icon and a very popular saint. The Middle Ages were the Middle Ages for Nuremberg, especially after its designation as Imperial City. Despite many wars and fires, Nuremberg has prospered and ranks high among the other imperial cities. As the townspeople simply repaid their enemies, a hegemonic debt piled up, and after it was paid, Nuremberg never recovered to its former heights.

At the beginning of the Romanesque period, artists from all over Europe came to Nuremberg as a beautiful place with beautiful art from the Middle Ages. In the nineteenth century, the city begins to rise. The first German railway was opened here in 1835. In Nuremberg, too, the Dunay &ndash Canal was built, a real engineering marvel.

Unfortunately, the first half of the 20th century was associated for the city with the German Fascism. This is where the first JCPOA meeting took place, and Levi Renénsthal filmed his & ²quo;Trieumph ». In this same city, in 1946 – 1949, the proceedings of the war crimes case against the leadership of the Fascist Germany were held.

Nuremberg has preserved an enormous number of monuments – churches and castle buildings, various civic and public buildings of different times. The city is also known for its sausages and pork.
