Berlin, the capital of Germany, is a fascinating city and a monument of living history. The Berlin Wall was dismantled in 1989, but the some of the districts of the East and West show signs of the cultural and physical divide that existed for 30 years. There is plenty to see to remind the visitor of the difficulties of those years including graffiti covered remnants of the wall itself.
