Germany - Hamburg

Postcrossing card from Germany - Hamburg sent by BaileyBlue.
Hamburg ( /ˈhæmbɜrɡ/; German pronunciation: [ˈhambʊɐ̯k], local pronunciation [ˈhambʊɪç]; Low German/Low Saxon: Hamborg [ˈhaˑmbɔːx]), officially Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg, is the second-largest city in Germany, the thirteenth largest German state, and the sixth-largest city in the European Union.[2] The city is home to over 1.8 million people, while the Hamburg Metropolitan Region (including parts of the neighbouring Federal States of Lower Saxony and Schleswig-Holstein) has more than 4.3 million inhabitants. Situated on the river Elbe, the port of Hamburg is the second largest port in Europe (after the Port of Rotterdam) and 11th-largest worldwide.
Hamburg's official name, Free and Hanseatic City of Hamburg (German: Freie und Hansestadt Hamburg),[3] reflects Hamburg's history as a member of the medieval Hanseatic League, as a free imperial city of the Holy Roman Empire, and that Hamburg is a city-state and one of the sixteen States of Germany.

Portugal - Odivelas

Postcard from Portugal, Odivelas. This is the city where I live.

Odivelas is a Portuguese town in the district of Lisbon, Lisbon region and sub-region of Greater Lisbon, with about 59,500 inhabitants.

It is home to a very small municipality with 26.14 km ² and 144,549 inhabitants (2011), divided into seven parishes. The council is limited to the northeastern city of Loures, southeast and west to Lisbon for Amadora and Sintra. The county lies in 1998, following the secession of the seven parishes of the county then southwest Loures.

The current county area of Maynooth was affected by the phenomenon of sobreurbanização. Between 1950 and 1970, the population of the parish odivelense increased from 6772 to 51,395 inhabitants. The growth of the population favored his elevation to the status of village (1964) and subsequently to the City (1990).
