Berlin is a magnificent city located in the northeastern of Germany and it‘s the capital city. With a population of 3.5 million people, is Germany's largest city.
In the13th century, Berlin was the capital of the Kingdom of Prussia (1701-1918), the German Empire (1871-1918), the Weimar Republic (1919-1933) and the Third Reich (1933-1945). Berlin in the 1920s wasthe third largest town in the world. After World War II, the city became divided into East Berlin and West Berlin by the Berlin Wall (1961-1989). After German reunification in 1990, the city regainedits status as the capital of Germany.
German architecture is a really odd mix between classic buildings and modern buildings, plus the extravagant which results in a special atmosphere. BerlinWall’s traces are exhibit in the best museums where you can relive very sorrowful times of division. Concentration Camps expose secrets about Germany worst period, Third Reich, and bunkers transmithorror-flashback about those dark days. There are some happier places to go in this wonderful city, for example: The Britzer Garten, which is a splendid park full of life.
One of the bad aspectsI can find in this town is how rude people are. They look down at you only because you are a foreign and if you ask for help they just keep walking. In my opinion german people is very cold. Anotherthing I notice is the food’s price, very expensive and not so tasty.
I think I’m in love with this town. Although Germany has a really horrible story related with Hitler and all the abominableacts committed by his followers, I believe German’s history is epic. Just think about all the bright minds that had made some big contributions to our world, for example: Albert Einstein, FriedrichWilhelm Nietzsche, The brothers Grimm, Sigmund Freud, Karl Marx, Ludwig van Beethoven. We can’t forget all the beautiful places where you can relax and philosophize about Berlin’s greatness....
