Berlin is a city of great importance for the history of Germany. It was the capital of Prussia, the German Empire, Weimar Republic and Nazi Germany. After the Second World War, Berlin was divided into East and West Berlin. The eastern part of the city became the capital of the German Democratic Republic, while Bonn was the capital of West Germany. In 1961, the East German authorities built a wall between East and West Berlin to prevent citizens from fleeing to the west. The wall was destroyed in 1989, and Berlin was reunited as a single city.

Today, Berlin is once again the national capital of a unified Germany. The city has undergone tremendous change since the fall of the Berlin Wall, and it is now one of the most vibrant and exciting cities in Europe.
