Berlin Wall Memorial

Berlin, Germany
4.8 / 80
The wall, which, following the Second World War, divided Berlin into zones of influence of the two main opponents - military blocs of the ATS and NATO. The wall stood for almost 30 years and became a symbol of the Cold War. It was a real border with checkpoints and security. After the fall of the Wall and the reunification of Germany in 1989, its wreckage was gradually stolen for souvenirs. It was decided to save some fragments of the structure as a monument.
