This is a continuation of the review, the first part of which can be found here.
The main city street, 

Unter den Linden, was

 still full of iconic objects of past heritage.

Berlin

did not cease to amaze us with its contrasts.

Pergamon Museum

, Berlin Cathedral, the Art Gallery and the Egyptian Museum.

34berlin-from-inside.jpgThree of the most beautiful buildings in Berlin are located here. They are the Concert hall in the center, the French Cathedral, and the German Cathedral.
35berlin-from-inside.jpgWe witnessed a strange live installation like "The Last Supper".
36berlin-from-inside.jpgThen we went further.
37berlin-from-inside.jpgSoon, we found ourselves back in a symbolic place - Checkpoint Charlie. Many tragic events took place here on the border of West and East Berlin after the war.

Indeed, Berlin has experienced real madness!
43berlin-from-inside.jpgCheckpoint Charlie is now a museum, the entrance to which costs about 10 Euros (as of 2015). Although, the fragments of the infamous wall can be seen nearby, outside of the museum. 
44berlin-from-inside.jpgIt's amazing how quickly everything that was associated with the hated division of Berlin has become a hot commodity.
45berlin-from-inside.jpgNowadays, the feeling of nostalgia brings good profits. For example, the "Trabi" museum and amusement park is dedicated to the once-popular German car "Trabant".
46berlin-from-inside.jpgTo sum up, it may be said that our walk through the city of Berlin was exciting and interesting. Perhaps, this city lacks external aesthetics, and sometimes it looks very unsightly, but it also has a rich and interesting history.
