day 274 October 1

Kiel Germany. Wikipedia tells us:
Because of its status as a naval port and as production site for submarines, Kiel was heavily bombed by the Allies during World War II. The bombing destroyed 80% of the remaining old town, 72% of the central residential areas, and 83% of the industrial areas.

This I suspect is an influence as to why this city feels so modern and unlike the rest of the places recently visited in Europe.
