The Berlin Cathedral (Berliner Dom): To date, I have not met anyone who didn’t find it very aesthetic. By the way, this largest church of Berlin is a protestant, not catholic one. This fact comes as a surprise for most, but to me the age is more astonishing: Built from 1894 to 1905 the cathedral is just a little over 100 years old – pretty young for such kind of church.
The Bode Museum on the Museum Island in Berlin is in my opinion one of the most beautiful buildings in the city. Even though the Museum Island in Berlin was heavily affected by the war, the Bode Museum withstood it relatively good. Here you go with a black/white/orange version of my photo from the Bode-Museum in Berlin.
Now this is how it looked like, the room of power and the heart of the German Government for 35 years until 1999. This is where the Chancellors like Willy Brandt, Helmut Schmidt, and Helmut Kohl lived and received international guests.

As the heavens opened up a bit and the UFO was illuminated in the orange light, it seemed to me as if I saw a version of the famous scene from the movie Independence Day – live in Bratislava. Surely, soon the first laser beams would appear across the Danube and raze the city to the ground…
Since more than 14 years I like to call the Olympic stadium in Berlin my second living room. At some point I had the thought that theoretically, the sun should shine through the 2nd side throughout the whole stadium. By the way, the sunlight is broken by the fire bowl for the Olympic flame – the Eternal Flame.
