Hallo Deutschland!

Großer Tiergarten, Straße des 17. Juni, Berlin, 28-3-2019

We took the subway to Richard's mom's house and had a welcome shot of vodka and dinner. The next day, Richard showed us his city, starting with the Soviet War Memorial at the Tiergarten. It was erected by the Soviet Union to commemorate its war dead, particularly the 80,000 soldiers of the Soviet Armed Forces who died during the Battle of Berlin in April and May 1945. It is located in the heart of Berlin along one of the major roads with a clear sight of the Reichstag and the Brandenburg Gate, both symbols of the city.



The Brandenburg Gate is an 18th-century neoclassical monument in Berlin, built on the orders of Prussian king Frederick William II after the (temporarily) successful restoration of order during the early Batavian Revolution. Throughout its existence, the Brandenburg Gate was often a site for major historical events and is today considered not only as a symbol of the tumultuous history of Europe and Germany, but also of European unity and peace. During our visit, 20,000 teenagers gathered at the Gate for the Fridays for Future climate protest. But this guy with the creative elephant placement, was protesting the former East German Secret State Police, Stasi.
