Welcome to Görlitz

The town was split between Germany and Poland in 1945, when the Allies drew a new border along the Neisse River. Görlitz’ former eastern flank is now the Polish town of Zgorzelec, easily reached via a footbridge across the river (indeed, it's hard to tell you've even left Germany). The authorities on both sides tout Görlitz and Zgorzelec as a single tourist destination, with all the major sights located on the German side, while Poland lures visitors with cheaper food and accommodation options.
