Nurnberg Contrasts

Nurnberg is the capital of Franconia and has a glorious past as capital of the Holy Roman Empire but also a very dark past as the spiritual capital of the NSDAP (Nazi) Party. There are perfect streches of medieval beauty and also the legacy of the party Rally Grounds where the Nurnberg racial laws were proclaimed. The city is built of a a rose red stone that can look beautiful but also dirty and oppresive. Nurnberg is defintley worth a visit and a dig into its very interesting history.
