Must to see. Amazingzing deconstructed external layout; Very Interesting exhibition displays.
Definitely comparable to the NHM in London, a wonderful way to spend a day.
Dear Sirs Or are the two sculptures of lions, presented at the photo, a national treasure in Germany, secretly removed after the Second World War, the Soviet Union? Unique in terms of expressiveness and the quality of castings, sculptures are in poor condition - lack of care led to the bronze focal perforations. There are no prospects of monuments to be preserved, so the question of the return of their country - the rightful owner is, in essence, the question of their existence. So, as an organization on the territory of which the lions are installed, is a public entity, the question of restitution has a chance of success, judging by the growth of mutual interest in the stability of our states in all fields of cooperation. Since the question of attribution of sculptures and owner can go to the politi¬cal plane, I was, understandably, fear that disclosure of the information on this topic may have negative consequences for me. Therefore I ask when considering my treatment adhere to a certain level of confidentiality. Best regards,
visiting Checkpoint Charlie should be enough to satisfy most visitors, but if you have a particular interest in the history behind this spot, this is a decent museum!
Didn't get a chance to go inside but the outside of the building is incredible, right next to the stunning Berliner Dom
the House of Checkpoint Charlie offered a fascinating insight into the strange history of those times. I remember growing up and hearing stories about the Berlin Wall and other Cold War affairs so it was fantastic to come to Berlin and experience a slice of history. Hard to believe that it was only twenty years ago
Your description of the Crown Prince Palace being constructed by King Frederick William I for his son Wilhelm II is very, very inaccurate. Frederick Wm I ruled from 1713 to 1740. His son became Frederick II "the Great" and Fred.Wm I had the palace remodeled for Frederick II and his wife Elisabeth Christine in 1733. Wilhelm II was born in 1859! Need to check historical fact!! Such garbling of facts puts all your article in question.
I really enjoyed looking round the pergamon museum. The work has lots of detail and its amazing how something so old has been kept in its orignal condition.
