Brandenburg Gate:
Brandenburg Gate in Berlin, Germany
Berlin is the capital of Germany. As of 2006, the city has an estimated population of 3,405,000, with 4,262,480 living in the metropolitan area.

During the Cold War, Berlin was divided between Communist East Berlin, and Western-orientated West Berlin, the latter of which was a Western enclave in East Germany. The city was physically divided into these two parts by the Berlin Wall which was erected in 1961, and came down in 1989.
