Probably worst art museum ever seen. 500 square meters used to show 20 paintings of not known latvian (not even lithuanian) artists. Not children friendly, if you are disabled no chance to see anything. Two small rooms upstairs for some wooden lithuanian crosses and Jesuses and metall works, but on the top floor, where you can get only small stairs. Staff not friendly. For a building history only one room reserved, everything you can get on wikipedia, wouldn't be surprised if they printed it from wiki. Not worth even a penny. Park nice, but if its wett, cant walk with a buggy, many locals walk dogs and dont collect their leftovers. Very good looking building, but very sad exhibition. They probably just have nothing to show.

Bamberg Historic City Centre

Bamberg is located in Upper Franconia on the river Regnitz close to its confluence with the river Main. Its historic city center is a listed UNESCO world heritage site.

Bamberg is a good example of a central European town with a basically early medieval plan and many surviving ecclesiastical and secular buildings of the medieval period. When Henry II, Duke of Bavaria, became King of Germany in 1007 he made Bamberg the seat of a bishopric, intended to become a 'second Rome'. Of particular interest is the way in which the present town illustrates the link between agriculture (market gardens and vineyards) and the urban distribution centre.

From the 10th century onwards, Bamberg became an important link with the Slav peoples, especially those of Poland and Pomerania. During its period of greatest prosperity, from the 12th century onwards, the architecture of this town strongly influenced northern Germany and Hungary. In the late 18th century Bamberg was the centre of the Enlightenment in southern Germany, with eminent philosophers and writers such as Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel and E.T.A. Hoffmann living there.

Bamberg extends over seven hills, each crowned by a beautiful church. This has led to Bamberg being called the 'Franconian Rome'.
