Since the beginning of the Russian -Ukrainian War, thousands of cities throughout the world have paid tribute to the Ukraine, showing their solidarity with the country’s flag and its blue and gold colors, be it on the Brandenburg Gate, the Eiffel Tower, Tower Bridge, …

…or even this bridge: the Old Town Hall and Bridges in Bamberg. This shot was taken by Martin Glas for his page on Instagram, der_heimatfotograf. There, the house in the middle of the Regnitz is lit with the Ukrainian flag, seen clearly from both sides of the river. As long as the conflict continues we will be showing our support for Ukraine as we will do everything possible so that the country is protected from Russian aggression.

A short fact about the bridge, it and the city hall were first mentioned in 1371, though the city hall was rebuilt twice in the 15th Century. Baroque and Rococo style elemants were added in the 1700s and the facade murals, which rounds off the appearance, was created by Johann Anwander in 1755. The area has been considered a technical heritage monument and a UNESCO World Heritage site. A museum also occupies the town hall to this day. More information can be found here.
