Frankfurt on the Oder/Slubice

Details


Frankfurt (Oder) [ˈfʁaŋkfʊət] is a city in Brandenburg, Germany, located on the Oder River, on the German-Polish border directly opposite the town of Słubice which was a part of Frankfurt until 1945.

In 1430 Frankfurt joined the Hanseatic League, but was a member for only a short time.

There was intense fighting for the city in 1945 during World War II when the city was declared a fortress (Festung) in an attempt to block the Red Army's route to Berlin.

See some pictures of the city.

Słubice shares many of its urban amenities with Frankfurt (Oder) and both towns collaborate on various projects such as the extension of some of the Viadrina European University's departments on the Polish side of the border.
