Germany

Germany is the most populated country in Europe. 82.7 million people live in it – more only in Russia. The country is similar to a patchwork quilt: it consists of 16 federal lands, each of which has its own capital, traditions, and dialect. The capital of the Federal Republic of Germany is Berlin with 3.6 million inhabitants.

Almost every city in Germany, and not just Berlin, boasts either a long history, or outstanding sights, or a rich cultural life, or all at once. In many cities, the historical center (Altstadt – “Old Town”) with its market square (Markt), “gingerbread” medieval houses and the town hall is perfectly preserved. In such places it is easy to imagine how the life of the burghers proceeded several centuries ago. Continue reading

Berlin, Germany

Berlin is Western and Eastern. Even now. And for three decades now, the Germans have been getting rid of the legacy of the GDR. Antiquities and the historical center, in general, in Berlin after the war, practically did not remain, lovers of narrow streets, palaces and fortresses here will not be too interesting. Nevertheless, the capital of Germany is an interesting and “lively” city. I propose to start dating.

Acquaintance with the city began in the afternoon, after arrival and check-in at the hotel. The hotel itself was close to Potsdamer Platz. An interesting monument of a bygone era met on the way – all that remains of the huge Anhalter Station (Anhalter Bahnhof). The station was built in 1841, during the Second World War it was badly damaged, then it ended up in West Berlin, from which, of course, there was nowhere to go by train. Continue reading

Tourists note

Public transport. It is considered one of the most harmoniously functioning on the whole continent. In addition to buses and trams, you can use the city electric trains (S-bahn) and the underground (U-bahn), which operate from 4 in the morning. Unified tariff systems are applied for all types of public transport. You can save various travel and tourist tickets. If you plan to use mainly intra-city transport, then it is more profitable to buy a travel card for the whole month. One-time tickets are valid for two hours, then they become useless pieces of paper. As for the condition of the roads, it is beyond praise in the territory of the former West Germany. Things are not so good on the old ex-GDR tracks, so drivers should be careful.

Communication and the Internet. Mobile communication covers almost the entire territory of the country, with the exception of remote areas between small village communes. Surprisingly, it is a fact: in Germany there are practically no pay phones, and this is because most citizens prefer to use cell phones. Machine guns were preserved mainly at railway stations. In order not to be left without communication, tourists upon arrival buy a SIM card of a local operator, it can be Vodafone, T-Mobile or E-Plus. Continue reading
