With 82 million inhabitants, Germany is the most populous state in the European Union and after the United States, the most popular immigrant destination in the world. Fact: 40% of Americans claim German heritage. Fact: Berlin has been Germany’s capital city twice. The country’s largest metropolis first became the capital in 1871 when the German states unified to become the German Empire, but after defeat in World War II, Berlin became an “outpost” during the Cold War years. Fact: Following German reunification in 1990, the German parliament voted to move its capital city from Bonn back to reunited Berlin, which has now resurfaced bigger, better and culturally stronger than ever before. Fact: Berlin has been called edgy, poor (financially), rich (culturally), sexy, liberal, exciting, a movie-making destination, historical, international, and never ending. Whether high or low-end budget, there is something awaiting every visitor to Berlin, and if you can’t find your interest here, you won’t find it anywhere. Mariya Fogarasi spent 10 years in this fascinating capital and will focus on favorite highlights of a city which has joined the major European capitals as a “must see”.
