It was founded in 1205, mentioned in documents 1275.
Basilica dates from 14th century.
Today there are ca. 40.000 inhabitants in Chojnice. Sibiu is a city at the centre of Romania
Between the 12th century and WWII it was dominated by German language and culture (partly Austro-Hungarian), up to the 19th century it was the political and cultural centre of the Transylvanian Saxons (people of German ethnicity who settled in Transylvania).
Today, Sibiu has ca. 170.000 inhabitants.
In 2007, it was a European Capital of Culture. With its 125.493 inhabitants, Salihli is the third-largest city of the Turkish province of Manisa

Salihli goes back to the town of Sardis, which was the capital of the ancient kingdom of Lydia, one of the important cities of the Persian Empire, the seat of a proconsul under the Roman Empire, and the metropolis of the province Lydia in later Roman and Byzantine times.

In the 13th century, the city declined and was then probably destroyed by the Mongol warlord Timur in 1402.

Close to the old Salihli (Sardis) - ca. 10 km from its ruins - the new Salihli developed from the 16th century onwards. Sciacca: a typically Sicilian town of ca. 41.000 inhabitants.
on the southern coast of Sicily; famous for its beneficial thermal baths since antiquity
founded in the 7th century BC - one of Sicily's oldest towns
Ca. 30 minutes from Sciacca are the temples of Selinunte. In 1034, Amberg was first mentioned in documents.
Amberg acquired wealth through mining and trading iron ore, thus the town could afford very strong fortifications (the town walls still exist today).
Today ca. 45.000 inhabitants live in Amberg, a town with four high schools (Gymnasien), a university of applied sciences and innovative industry. German stamp on the occasion of
the tricentenary of Comenius' death (1970) Tolerance ... learning about similarities
