Multicolored Berlin - what do you need to see there?

The capital of Germany is a unique city in many respects. Eagerly visited by tourists, valued for monuments, attractive at any time of the year, tempting with shops and cultural events, and full of contrasts.

Berlin is the third largest city in the EU. So it is difficult to plan a weekend tour, making sure that you will not miss anything that you need to see. We will try to help a bit, indicating the greatest treasures of this interesting city.
& Nbsp;

Berlin Wall


Berliner Mauer - the fortification system divided the city into West and East Berlin. He measured over 150 km in length, and stood infamously from 1961 to 1989. Over the years, it has become a historical symbol of division and the Cold War. Berliner Mauer is best preserved in the longest piece at the Bernauer Straße, the smaller fragments still stand at Niederkirchnerstraße and at Liesenstraße.
& Nbsp;

Brandenburg Gate


The next symbol of Berlin is Brandenburger Tor. Located in the heart of the city, it was built at the end of the 18th century. Its spectacular dimensions are over 26 meters high and over 65 meters wide. Built in the eighteenth century in an early-classical style. On the top of it proudly presents a chariot driven by Queen Victoria, drawn by four horses. The gate has already entered the city landscape so much that it is difficult to imagine Berlin without it.
& Nbsp;

Parlament / Reichstag


The Reichstag is the place where the Bundestag functions. It has a rich history - it was created in 1884-94, remembers the Weimar Republic and the parliament of the Second Reich. At the top of the classic building, which is reached by a high staircase, there is a glass dome with an observation deck.
& Nbsp;

Czerwony Ratusz


Rotes Rathaus was built in 1861-1869. It was built in the classical Neo-Renaissance style. It is here that the mayor of the city has its headquarters. The name promises a great exterior appearance of the building, which was made of red bricks.
& Nbsp;

Victory Column


Siegessäule is another symbol of Berlin, which can not be overlooked during sightseeing. It is located in the Großer Tiergarten park. From 1864, he stands proudly, honoring the victory of the Prussian army. The center of the column is occupied by winding stairs leading to the observation deck at an altitude of 50 meters (at the foot of the reigning Nike peak).
& Nbsp;

Bellevue Castle


Schloss Bellevue is a palace complex and another monument in the Großer Tiergarten park. It was created on the orders of Prince Ferdinand in 1786. Renovated at the beginning of this century, it plays the role of a presidential residence. Beautiful, impressive and definitely worth seeing.
& Nbsp;

Pałac Charlottenburg


Schloss Charlottenburg is a picturesque castle in Berlin - Charlottenburg. Built in the eighteenth century, but rebuilt with considerable changes that gave it the character of French architecture after the war.
& Nbsp;

Church of Remembrance


Also called the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church, and Kaiser-Wilhelm-Gedächtniskirche in German. An unusual object that was created at the end of the 19th century. Represents the Neo-Roman style. He suffered during the bombing of Berlin in 1943. After these events it was not restored - the destroyed tower remained as a symbol of the negation of war and violence.
& Nbsp;

Charlottenburg


A charming neighborhood that was once an independent city. Today - next to well-known and eagerly visited objects (Palace, Train Station, churches, opera, Olympic Stadium), it is peaceful, full of greenery and places to relax with a busy Berlin area.
& Nbsp;

Berliner Dome Cathedral


An unusual beauty of the Evangelical cathedral, erected between 1894 and 1905. Represents late-Italian style. It suffered severely during World War II, but it was rebuilt. Work to restore its former splendor, however, is still going on. In the cavernous basement of the cathedral there are graves of 90 dead from the Hohenzollern dynasty.
& Nbsp;

New Synagogue


Neue Synagoge is the seat of the Jewish community in Berlin. Also destroyed during the war - renovation works have been going on so far. Proudly presents a very beautifully decorated dome.

Byłam niedawno, choć czułam się chwilami w obawach przed nachodźcami, to chyba bez podstaw. Miasto piękne, dużo zabytków i sporo sklepów :D
