Germany: Frankfurt (Oder)

Frankfurt (Oder) is a town in Brandenburg, Germany, located on the Oder River, on the German-Polish border directly opposite the town of Słubice, which was part of Frankfurt until 1945. At the end of the 1980s, it reached a population peak with more than 87,000 inhabitants. The number dropped below 70,000 in 2002 and was just above 60,000 in 2010. The official name Frankfurt (Oder) and the older "Frankfurt an der Oder" are used to distinguish it from the larger city of Frankfurt am Main.
