The old Bavarian town of Bamberg is one of the jewels in historical region of Franconia. Since the middle of the 13th century and until 1802 the town was ruled by bishops, which had an impact on Bamberg's history and architecture. The only Pope buried to North of Alps, rests in Bamberg's cathedral. There are seven hills in town, each of which is crowned by a beautiful church. This fact alludes to Rome, which is also called a "city on the seven hills". The town itself is an untouched historical monument survived in World War II - this fact is emphasized by inscription of Bamberg into UNESCO World Heritage List. With its 11 breweries, Bamberg is famous for its beer traditions.
