Berlin is the capital of Germany and is subdivided into 12 boroughs. It is located in the North Eastern part of Germany and is the centre of the Berlin-Brandenburg Metropolitan Region. Berlin was documented as Germany’s largest city in the 13th century and was the capital of the Kingdom of Prussia. Berlin was divided into East Berlin and West Berlin after World War II by the Berlin Wall. In 1989 at the end of the Cold War the Berlin Wall fell and became demolished with little of the structure remaining today. In 1933 Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party came into power and destroyed Berlin's Jewish community. Berlin is well known for its festivals, nightlife, contemporary arts and diverse architecture.
