One fact about Berlin, Germany: the 70% of the city stands of forest. So Berlin is one of the cleanest and most beautiful cities of the world, with a lot of parks and threes even in the center, what gives an unbeatable, calm and comfortable feeling to the city. I spent there a week but I couldn’t hear even a single loud word or somebody shouting. The other surprising fact was that Berlin is cheaper than most of the European capitals and I didn't only mean the extremely expensive London but cities like Budapest or Bucharest.

There are a lot of places what you can visit thoroughly free like the Bundestag, Sans Souci Park in Potsdam, the Alexanderplatz, the Brandenburg Gate, the monuments of the wall separating East and West and many others. About the nightlife, a beer costs about 2-3 Euro and Saturday night all streets are tied up with young people goin' from one party to other.

And before I forget, one of the most kind thing about Berlin is that almost everybody is riding a bicycle instead of driving a car and the people are (or seem to be) very patient and tolerant one with the other. So there's no doubt that you should pick up Berlin into your must-see list.

Many of the popular museums and art galleries are in the Mitte area, which also features several interesting bars and restaurants. Sch√∂neberg is... Read more »
