Today on View of the Day, I present to you – Berlin, Germany. Berlin is a fascinating place to visit, with an incredibly varied history. Sure, you will have probably heard of the Berlin Wall or the Brandenburger Tor.
Berlin is a world city of culture, politics, media and science. Its economy is based on high-tech firms and the service sector, encompassing a diverse range of creative industries, research facilities, media corporations and convention venues. Berlin serves as a continental hub for air and rail traffic and has a highly complex public transportation network. The metropolis is a popular tourist destination.
Berlin was the centre of one of the most infamous regimes in history, and remained so until 1945 when it was liberated by the Red Army. Unfortunately liberation was a painful process. After the fall of the Wall, Berlin became the capital of unified Germany and a building boom began in the 1990s that included more than 30 major construction works in the east of the city.
It has also become the cultural capital of Central and Eastern Europe, excelling in every field. (Some info culled from Wikipedia)
