|Country Map and Shields of the 16 Federal States - GERMANY|
Wednesday, June 25, 2014
I can't really explain why, but Germany is probably the country I know the least in Western Europe and only visited briefly. Looking at the map in this carg I identify lots of names from movies, books and TV shows. I really must start to think in planning a true trip around this country. Thank you very much Liane, this is a great contribution to my map postcard collection. This postcard took 3 days to arrive!
Germany is a federal parliamentary republic in western-central Europe consisting of 16 partly sovereign federal states. Its capital city and largest city is Berlin.
