During warm, summer holidays we like to visit some interesting place, for time to time. The best option is to use longer weekend, especially if our destination isn’t so far away or we can get there by plane. Europe is filled with nice cities with many monuments, one of the most interesting is Berlin, the capital of Germany.
How to get there?
There are multiple ways to get to the Berlin from Poland, all depends on the distance and our needs. People, which are living in the west country can use bus or train, the journey will take about four hours. But the most comfortable will be trip by plane, available from each bigger airport in our country. The flight may be very cheap if you only book it couple of months ahead. At the start of the sale airline carriers are offering big discounts. It is also the perfect moment to book the accommodation, it is not cheap in the capital of Berlin, however very hostels is available.
Probably the most popular building in the area of Berlin is Brandenburg Gate, a symbol of military triumph from the past. It is situated in the central part of the Berlin. About ten minute walk from there you can find extraordinary Memorial of Holocaust’s Victims. It is huge square covered by black, tall stones, each represents a group of dead people.
