The 15th East Meridian Monument
Have you looked at a time zone map and been agog to know why the CET spans as far west as Spain and France? A monument defining a central axis for Central European Time can be found in this very spot and its history is anchored to Nazi Germany. This reference to the line of longitude, unlike the Greenwich Meridian, is far from elaborate however. On balance, the park in which it lies - Stadtpark - is peaceful, undervisited and great to stroll around. I had to use Google maps to pinpoint its exact location given its unimposing yet significant role in Görlitz. #monument #photography #free #history
