ENG: Dynamic and modern capital of Germany, embodies the historical and political events that have left a strong impact on history of this country. Berlin is the capital city since 1991 and today has 3,4 million residents.

Berlin is the city that really surprised me. I didn’t expect that Berlin would be so lively, fun, diverse, colorful. A week is not enough to visit all the tourist attractions and museums of this city. Tourists have opportunity to take a cycling, boating, bus or walking tours.

Until 1991, until the demolition of the Berlin Wall, Berlin was divided in two part, East and West. Today, all around the city, you can find the remains of this wall, painted by international artist. West Berlin is full of luxurious and modern buildings, where is East Berlin, despite the renovation of the city, you can still feel the spirit of the Soviet era.

Landmark of Berlin is Brandenburg Gate at the Pariser Platz. The most famous boulevard is Under den Linden that streches from Pariser Platz till the Museum Island. Berlin is city of museums and some of them are National Gallery, Old Museum, Jewish Museum of Berlin, Museum of National History, German Museum od Technology…Numerous memorial stand around the city as reminders of turbulent history of this city. Be sure to visit Checkpoint Charlie ( the border between East and West Berlin), East Side Gallery, Memorial of the Murdered Jews of Europe, Berlin Wall ( the largest open-air gallery in the world) .

Two main squares in the city are Alexender Platz ( East Berlin) and Postdamer Platz ( West Berlin). At these sites you can find two places where you can enjoy the panoramic view of Berlin. At Postadamer Platz, in the building named „ Postdamer Platz Panorama Point“, in just 20 seconds, you can be at 100 meters above sea level and enjoy the view as well as the colored beer made of menta or raspberry. At Alexender Platz, you can find TV Tower and in 40 second be at the top of this building and have lunch or dinner at the restaurant, 203 meters above the sea level. These squares are perfect choice for shopping. Here you can find everything you need, on any price. One more shopping place worth visiting is Berlin’s flea market.

Historical, political and travel center is definitely the Government’s district. Which is divided by Berlin’s Spree River. South of this area is the Reichstag Building – the German Parlament since 1999.

I hope you’ll have the chance to visit this amazing city and don’t forget to visit the zoo, aquarium, numerous parks, Madame Tussauds Museum and drink some beer with your friends. I’m sure that this city will make you breathless, as it made me.

SRB: Dinamična i moderna prestonica Nemačke, oličenje je istorijskih i političkih događaja ovog grada. Berlin nosi titulu prestonice od 1991. godine. Danas u ovom gradu živi 3,4 miliona stanovnika.

Berlin je grad koji me je prijatno iznenadio. Nisam očekivala da će ovaj grad biti toliko živ, zabavan, raznolik. Nedelju dana je malo da posetiti samo najznačajnije turističke atrakcije i muzeje ovog grada. Turisti u Berlinu imaju mogućnost obilaska grada biciklama, turističkim autobusom, brodovima, i naravno pešice.

Berlin je do 1991. godine bio podelje na istočni i zapadni deo, sve do rušenja Berlinskog zida. Danas, svuda po gradu možete videti ostatke zida,  oslikanih od strane umetnika iz celog sveta. Zapadni Berlin je oličenje luksuza i modernih građevina, dok se u istočnom Berlinu, uprkos brojnim promenama i uređivanju grada, još uvek oseća duh sovjetske vladavine ovim delom grada.

Obeležje Berlina je svakako Brandenburška kapija na Pariser Platz-u. Najpoznatiji bulevar ovog grada je Under den Linden koji se prostire od Parizer Platz-a do Berlinske katedrale i ostrva muzeja. Berlin je grad muzeja, a samo neki od najznačajnijih su nacionalna galerija, antički muzej ( starogrčka , rimska i etrurska kultura), muzej istorije Nemačke, Jevrejski muzej, tehnološki muzej. Širom grada, nalazi se veliki broj spomenika i istorijskih mesta. Obavezno obiđite Checkpoint Charie (nekadašnji granični prelaz između istočnog i zapadnog Berlina), zidni muzej na kome je fotografijama prikazana istorija Berlina, spomenik stradalim Jevrejima Evrope koji sa svojih 2,711 betonskih ploča različitih boja i veličina treba da dočara hladnoću, skučenost, strahote nacističkih logora, Berlinski zid koji se prostire u dužini od 1,316m i samim tim predstavlja najveću galeriju na otvorenom na svetu.

Dva najznačajnija trga u gradu su Postdamer Platz ( Zapadni Berlin)  i Alexander Platz ( istočni Berlin). Na oba trga možete naći mesta na kojima možete uživati u panorami Berlina. Na Postdamer Platz-u, u zgradi pod nazivom „ Postdamer Platz Panorama Point“ možete se za 20 sekundi liftom popeti na 100 metara visine i uživati u pogledu na Berlin i opustiti se uz čašu piva u boji ( pivo od maline, nane…). Na Alexander Platz-u možete se popeti na vrh televizijskog tornja za 40 sekundi i ručati ili večerati u restoranu na visini od 203 metra. Ova dva mesta su odličan izbor za šoping, gde se može naći za svakoga po nešto, za svačiji džep. Još jedno zanimljivo mesto za kupovinu je svakako i Berlinska buvlja pijaca.

Istorijski, politički i naravno turistički centar je svakako vladina četvrt. Sa obe strane reke Špreje, prostiru se zgrade vlade i sedište kancelara Nemačke a južno od vladine četvrti i nemački savezni parlament Bundestag (zgrada Rajhstaga).

Nadam se da ćete imati prilike da posetiti ovaj grad i pritom ne zaboravite da posetite zoo vrt, akvarijum, brojne parkove, muzej Madame Tussauds i naravno popiti po koje pivo bilo to samo jedna krigla ili čak i pivo na metar. Sigurna sam da če i Vas kao i mene ovaj grad ostaviti bez daha.
