Style, ease and lightness reign in Berlin. Too many grandiose and at the same time tragic events took place in the German capital – the declaration of the Third Reich, the Nazi pogroms, the almost complete destruction by bombing, the half-century division into Western and Eastern parts. Now the city seems to be resting and is happy to write its history anew.
The districts of Berlin are not at all similar to each other. In the historical central part, the gloomy hulks of the Reichstag and the palaces of the Museum Island rise. There are interesting restaurants, stylish clubs and art spaces in the trendy eastern quarters. The best shops of the city are located on Kurfurstendamm Boulevard.
Berlin, of course, is not as elegant and ceremonial as other European capitals, but it has its own soul, which opens up to the traveler gradually.
