Berlin. Kaiser-Wilhelm-Gedachtniskirche. Zoologischer Garten

Here's the Kaiser-Wilhelm-Gedächtniskirche (

The Protestant Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church

). It is a memorial. In the Fall of 1943, the church was destroyed after a bombing attack. Ruins of the tower were preserved and today have been used as one of the symbols of 

Berlin

. In the evenings, the building emits a blue glow. Inside, it's unusual and quite interesting.

This was a monument to an unknown plumber :) Actually, the monument was dedicated to the unification of Berlin. It's located near a department store called KaDeWe. The pipes represent parts of Berlin, united and disconnected at the same time. The construction was revealed on the 750th anniversary of the city, in 1987.

Then, we were walking through a park called 

Tiergarten

. We saw different monuments on the way: a column with an unknown meaning, a man standing on the corner of a house, different historical personalities that I did not know and strange sculptures that frightened with their avant-garde style.

These carefully pilled blocks formed a fountain :) It just didn't operate in November.

This was an interesting building. It looked like a bunker that was ready to slam its doors and windows shut at any moment.
