Going to Berlin with Bus
Berlin is an amazing city with a lot of attractions and historical landmarks. In this article we will show you some of the most famous attractions in Berlin.
The one that you definitely can’t miss is the so called Brandenburger Tor. This was the city’s main gate and is one of the main symbols of Berlin and Germany. It is a monumental entrance to the boulevard Unter den Linden (under the limes) that leads to the Castle of the Prussian monarchs. Only a few meters away across the road is the building of the Reichstag. The Gate has 12 Doric columns – 6 columns each side, and that way the 5 entrances are created. In the past the citizens were only allowed to use the two outside entrances. On top of the gate there is a cart with four horses and Victoria (roman goddess of victory).
When we talk about Berlin we can’t miss the Berlin Wall. The Berlin Wall was a concrete wall built by the German Democratic Republic (GDR). This wall was separating GDR from West Germany and West Berlin. The wall had security towers and devices stopping cars from passing. Before the wall was built more than 3.6 million East Germans cross the border and go to West Berlin. The wall was stopping the immigration before it was destroyed on the 23rd of August 1989. Today many visitors go to the celebration that is every year on the same date.
The last place I am going to list in this article is the Berlin Cathedral. Berlin Cathedral is an impressive basilica well known under the name ”Protestant St. Peter”. Today’s Baroque Architecture is only 100 years old. Before the cathedral at the same place many other buildings existed. It is 114 meters long and 73 meters wide. The dome of the cathedral is decorated with very impressive and interesting mosaic. The dome of the cathedral offers an amazing view. To get to there though you will need to climb 270 steps. Unlike other cathedrals the stairs to the dome in this cathedral are very wide and there are a lot of places for rest. On the way to the dome there are many interesting art works and photograph that you can see. One very important place in the cathedral is the crypt. In the crypt there are over 80 sarcophaguses of noble Prussian Royals.
