The topography of Bamberg is shaped by its adjacent River Regnitz and the upperlands of Steigerwald. The town is vertically separated into the Regnitz plain, a large and several small islands joined by two arms of the Regnitz (Inselstadt), and the town of Hill Town or Bergstadt. Due to its geographical similarity with Rome, Bamberg is often called the
Franconian Rome or the Italian Bamberg. Like the former, Bamberg also extends over seven hills, each capped by a church. The population is around 7000, out which 4100 are Americans army men and their dependents.
