DE-837148 & DE-839419

I´ve been receiving a lot of officials from Germany and they've been really nice.

DE-837148, sent by Martin.
"Dortmund is a city in Germany. It is located in the Bundeslan of North Rhine-Westphalia. Its population of 587,830 (in June 2005) makes it the 8th largest city in Germany and the 34th largest in the European Union.
Cultural history tones are set by the churches in the city centre whose towers characterise the skyline of Dortmund. The Reinoldikirche and the Marienkirche are gems of medieval architecture.
The city centre of Dortmund still retains the outline of the medieval city. A ring road marks the former city wall, and the Westen-/Ostenhellweg, part of a medieval salt trading route, is still the major (pedestrian) street bisecting the city centre." - in: wikipedia
DE-839419, sent by Rafal.
I've already received some great cards sent by Rafal and now he sent me another beautiful card as an official.
Görlitz is the easternmost town in Germany, located on the Lusatian Neisse River in the Federal State of Saxony.
The Church of St. Peter and Paul is located on a hill above the Neisse River. It is a good example of a medieval Romanesque church, from 1230; and the church built after that, between 1423 and 1497 in Gothic style. The neo-Gothic towers were built in the late 1800's and can be seen from anywhere in Görlitz. Many tourists like to view this church from poland, across the Neisse River.
