interesting facts:
The Brandenburg Gate, the most famous city-gate of Berlin, was designed by Karl Gotthard Langhans and built in years 1788-1791. It was topped by a statue of Roman goddess Victory in a Quadriga. After world war II it was standing in a border zone between West Berlin and communistic German Democratic Republic, what made it inaccesible. Only the unification of Germany re-opened the gate for the common use. The Brandenburg Gate became thus the symbol of the united Germany.
