Berlin: History & Highlights of a Fascinating City

Thursday, September 16, 2021

Mariya Fogarasi spent 10 years in this fascinating capital and will focus on her favorite highlights of a city which has joined the major European capitals as a "must see." With 82 million inhabitants, Germany is the most populous state in the European Union and, after the United States, the most popular immigrant destination in the world. 40% of Americans claim German heritage. Berlin has been Germany’s capital city twice. The country’s largest metropolis first became the capital in 1871 when the German states unified to become the German Empire, but after defeat in World War II, Berlin became an “outpost” during the Cold War years.
