Regensburg is an ancient city on the banks of the Danube with a rich history. Nowadays known primarily for its bridge, which is a symbol of the city. The biggest crowds of tourists go exactly on it. Stone bridge across the Danube was built in 1135-1146, respectively, and even was used by participants of the first Crusades.
