About Berlin: In Europe, it is difficult to find a place that bears as many heavy historical scars as Berlin does. During World War II Berlin suffered recurring devastation from bombings but it has since emerged from the ruins reborn. Berlin preserves Germany’s long history, from a royal monarchy to the Second World War to stories from the Cold War. Museumsinsel—Berlin's Museum Island located in the Spree River—is listed as a World Heritage Site. There are not only charming exhibits on fascinating topics ranging from ancient times to the present, but also other museums from which you may gain a lot. The streets are full of graffiti which give the city a modern artistic atmosphere and temperament, but the most significant graffiti is painted upon the remains of the Berlin Wall. The nightlife in the capital city is also spectacular. Hidden under its serious governmental and historic countenance, Berlin's endless vitality makes itself known.
