The 7 Best Historical, Artsy, and Quirky Museums in Berlin
Berlin is the capital city of Germany, dating to the 1300s. It was initially a small town but eventually became the capital of the former Kingdom of Prussia. Of course, it’s most well-known for its role in the 20th century when it became the center of world events during the first and second world wars. The city was heavily damaged during WWII and was subsequently divided into two halves: East Berlin was controlled by Russia, and West Berlin became an enclave of freedom controlled by the Allied forces.
