Brandenburg Gate, Berlin



It was a very warm and sunny day in Berlin when we went sightseeing the city. Brandenburg gate was constructed around 1778 -1791.It has beautiful carved statues and monuments from Greek mythology. During the cold war the wall was gate dividing the East and West Berlin. Today it is a symbol of unified Berlin and peace.


It is venue for celebration of Fall of Berlin wall.. When you take a tour in Berlin you will definetly notice the difference in former communist East Berlin and capitalist west Berlin..in the buildings, structures, housing. roads etc..





This place is highly popular tourist destination.. It is surrounded by ice-cream/Gelato shops and restaurants..If you happen to be there don't forget to get a visa to enter other part of Berlin stamped on a postcard as a souvenir!! 


Visit Skywatch Friday for more beautiful skies!!
