History has it that Germany is a focal point of humanity's history. Among its many cities and states, it's capital Berlin is the most popular for its rich historical value. The Berlin Wall is a world-known iconic symbol of the Cold War. For 28 years, it served as the symbol of a post-war divided Germany, a towering symbol of Communist tyranny sending a strong message of Germany's political and economic distinction from the rest of the world. Berlin Wall's fall in 1989 showed the world Germany's transformation and adaptability to modernist ideologies and philosophies, making the city a more celebrated place in Europe and the rest of the world. Recently, Berlin has made yet another historic event after hosting the 2006 FIFA World Cup.
