DP Theme day : City Exchange


City exchange *brain storming*light bulb*... let's do Szentes' sister cities/town, fantastic!

Will just focus on one city which is Markgröningen(Germany) . Obviously I haven't been to the area but would really love to see the place for myself because...
am curious of what happens at a Shepherd's Race (a tradition since 1445)!
If I'm there for the race, I could attend their international music festival. Of course, the great attraction for me is their gorgeous architecture such as the one shown above. Can't wait!

FYI, our sister cities/towns incl :-
Bácskatopolya (Yugoslavia), Bunol (Spain), Markgröningen (Germany), Dubravuta-Újszentes (Romania), Sankt Augustin (Germany), Hof Ashqelon (Israel), Kaarina (Finland), Skierniewice (Poland)

Good idea. And a very impressive list of sister cities.

Kate said...

A wonderful building, imposing but charming!

Felicia said...

Hi Kris! I agree with both Denton and Kate - good idea and charming building. I'd like to see a close up of that door!

Nathalie in Sydney said...

I'm not sure what Sydney's sister cities are, nor even if it has any! What a brilliant way to treat the theme, and the photo is absolutely gorgeous, Kris!

I was overseas for a few days and only came home last night, too late to enrol in the Theme day, but I am participating anyway.
Cheers!

Mandi said...

Great idea!

Kala said...

for some reason, I kept thinking this was switzerland but i guess it could also be Germany - little do I know my buildings - but it does look very impressive

alice said...

Very good idea to list your sister cites. It could be a separate theme day topic. Well we kind of did it this time. I love your photo.

isabella said...

When are you going there? I'd like to come along...at least for the Shepherd's Race (I hope they don't race sheeps!).

Abraham Lincoln said...

Very nice photograph and a great idea to list your sister cities.

My Theme Day is of a city unto itself, with its own zip code, and a portrait of the "Peashooter" at the National Museum of the United States Air Force. Hope you like flying.
