The city of Groningen

"For centuries the city of Groningen has been the largest, cleanest and most powerful in Frisia"
EMMIUS

"Thanks to its location in the middle of an area stretching both east and west, for centuries the city of Groningen has been the largest, cleanest and most powerful in Frisia, involved in almost every major event that took place there, both in times of war and peace. Nowadays the city is spacious and big, magnificent thanks to its private and public buildings, and distinguished by its two market squares and powerful fortifications."

Ubbo Emmius, first Rector of the University of Groningen (1614), historian and theologian. #UGCommonGround #UGalumni #tbt
