Berlin is the capital city of Germany with a population of 3.4 million. It is a major centre of culture, politics, media, and science in Europe. The Berlin Wall between East and West Berlin was built in 1961 completely separating the two halves of the cit until the wall was breached on 9 November 1989. In October 1990 the East and West Germany were reunified as the Federal Republic of Germany, and Berlin became the German capital.
