'Market square of Stendal.'
The statue of Roland, dating 1525, is symbol for Stendal's membership of the Hanseatic League, a medieval alliance of mostly northgerman trading cities. Such cities are famous for their brick architecture, as shown here in the town hall and the towers of the Marienkirche. Photo Paul Smit.
