Exploring Germany


Today I traveled to Europe, I traveled to Berlin, Germany. Berlin's population is 3.4 million just inside its city limits. It holds the title for the second most populated cities in the world. There are also many sites and things to see, for example, you can walk down to the Altes museum on Berlin's Museum island in Berlin, Germany. You can view many collections of antiques in these museum. Many of the buildings in Berlin were built sometime in the 1800's. If you are a religious person, they have many churches you can visit including the Cathedral which is a church in Berlin that was built between 1895 and 1905. There is a nice memorial peice you can visit while staying in Berlin too. It is the Tiergarten Soviet War Memorial which was built in 1945, a few months after the battle of Berlin and the end of WWII in Germany; stands in honor of more than 80,000 soviet soldiers who lost their life in the battle of Berlin. Enscrypted "Eternal Glory to the heroes who fell in battle with the German fascist occupiers for the freedom and independence of the Soviet Union."
