Brandenburg, germany offline car navi: mobile gps apps - Province of Brandenburg - Wikipedia



When Germany was reunified following the fall of the Berlin in November 1989 Brandenburg Gate quickly reinvented itself into the New Berlin's symbol of unity. It was officially opened to traffic on December 22, 1989 and 100,000 people came to celebrate the occasion. Unfortunately this also resulted in severe damage to the monument which needed to be restored and was only officially reopened on October 3, 2002.

When visiting the monument and before crossing over to the other side, the "Raum der Stille" (Room of Silence) situated on the north wing provides a restful place for a short break. Two additional important landmarks just on the side of the Gate are the Pariser Platz with the "Akademie der Künste" (Academy of Arts) and the restored American embassy. The Platz des 18. März commemorates the demonstrations during the 1848 revolutions for democracy.

Brandenburg ( German pronunciation: [ˈbʁandn̩bʊɐ̯k]  (   listen ) ; Low German : Brannenborg , Lower Sorbian : Bramborska , Upper Sorbian : Braniborsko ) is one of the sixteen federated states of Germany . It lies in the northeast of the country covering an area of 29,478 square kilometers and has 2.48 million inhabitants. The capital and largest city is Potsdam . Brandenburg surrounds but does not include the national capital and city-state Berlin forming a metropolitan area.

Originating in the medieval Northern March , the Margraviate of Brandenburg grew to become the core of the Kingdom of Prussia , which would later become the Free State of Prussia with part being the province of Brandenburg . Brandenburg is one of the federal states that were re-created in 1990 upon the reunification of the former East Germany and West Germany .

Brandenburg is situated in territory known in antiquity as Magna Germania , which reached to the Vistula river. By the 7th century, Slavic peoples are believed to have settled in the Brandenburg area. The Slavs expanded from the east, possibly driven from their homelands in present-day Ukraine and perhaps Belarus by the invasions of the Huns and Avars . They relied heavily on river transport. The two principal Slavic groups in the present-day area of Brandenburg were the Hevelli in the west and the Sprevane in the east.
