Görlitz, Germany

Görlitz is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the east German state of Saxony.

Located right on the river which forms the border with Poland, it is Germany's most eastern town.

Görlitz is renowned for its architectural treasures spanning different eras. The setting of the old town has led to it featuring as a backdrop to many well-known films - so much so that it now has the nickname 'Görli-wood'.
