The old and new German capital was and still is in a constant state of flux which is well visible in mixed both old and modern architecture of the city. This phenomenon has accelerated since the fall of the Wall. Large efforts and money are now concentrated upon turning Berlin into an international metropolis, the new "capital of Europe".

For over the past decade, Berlin has been undergoing a major rebuilding process which is the best visible at Potzdamer Platz and Mitte. Even now, in 2003 that is over 13 years since the fall of the wall I could see quite many small and large construction works underwent in Berlin.

But I am sure that there was also a rebuilding process taking place less visibly - in the hearts and minds of Berliners.
