The modern city of Frankfurt am Main - also known as "Bankfurt", "Mainhattan" or "The Big Äppel" - is Germany's fifth largest city and the country's financial and business center. It is home to the European Central Bank, the German Federal Bank and the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. It is also Germany's premier traffic hub and home to one of the world's busiest airports and largest rail terminals. In the Holy Roman Empire, Frankfurt was an imperial city, subordinate only to the Holy Roman Emperor himself, not to a regional ruler. Although its major historic landmarks were largely destroyed in World War II, those reconstructed to their former glory include the Roemer, the Old Opera House, the Hauptwache and the Goethe House, and all are worth seeing. Further points of interest include the Senckenberg Natural History Museum and the Museum of Modern Art. Culinary specialties are of the more hearty variety here, and include wurst, kraut, green sauce, and apple wine.
