As many cities in France, Metz takes its origin in the Pre-Roman and Roman time, has been growing as major medieval centre and retains today a variety of great monuments from the different periods, including a splendorous cathedral. However, what makes Metz unique is its position, on the border between Germany and France. The city has been disputed during centuries between the two nations. The result is a unique combination of French and German culture. One of the golden period of Metz was during the German annexion of the end of the 19th century. From this imperial time, the city retains several buildings including the Imperial Station Palace, the Opera house and the temple.
