My Euro Travel in Frankfurt, Germany

Frankfurt is considered to be the Manhattan of Germany. It is Germany's financial and transportation centre. You can see in this city a lot of banking and financial institutions that also make it as the financial centre in continental Europe. You can see some skycrapers in my picture here.
