Germany: Berlin

For today's card, I choosed Berlin because today we are celebrating German Unity Day.  It commemorates the anniversary of German reunification in 1990, when the goal of a united Germany that originated in the middle of the 19th century, was fulfilled again. Therefore, the name addresses neither the re-union nor the union, but the unity of Germany. The Day of German Unity on 3 October has been the German national holiday since 1990, when the reunification was formally completed. This year's Unity Day is a special one because its it 25th Anniversary.
