This Shopping mall is called EastGate, located in the borough of Marzahn, deep into the East Berlin. It's really nice and spacious but Gropius Passagen in Neukölln is my favourite interriorwise. Thanx for the pictures! AWESOME!

38. Berlin's block areas. They're Western part of the city thus can't be called "commie" blocks, if we strictly stick to terminology. I saw the view from my hotel. Also, wind generators are very common sight around Berlin - also coming in from Eastern side they're many of them.



39. The view to other side from my hotel. Big apartment block was other side of the street, while surrounding area very green & foresty. The city centre was some 10 km to East from here.



40. On the way to Charlottenburg area. I can't stop appreciate of how Berlin's integrating it's infrastructure... It's almost making the city more, not less cosy.



41.



42. And here you see how greatly they've build bicycle roads - they're physically separated both from streets and pavements. I'm not supporting some urbanists ideas, that such a separation is bad and bicyclists should better have only their lanes on the streets



43. As in any large cities, also scooter is a popular way of transport...



44. ...even older ladies use it!

71.



72.



73.



74. Another funny painting



75. Notice the color combinations of blue and red. Almost seems like the trailer is situated there with such purpose.



76.

77.



78. Back to central areas of city



79.



80.



81.



82.



And now aerial views from Dom for a wider spatial understanding of the city

83.



84. Modernity everywhere



85.



86.



87.



88.



89.



90. Vast areas which looks like historical...



91.



92.



93. ...but, of course, Berlin is not also short of commieblocks. But in rare city they look rather appealing than appaling. Berlin has achieved it through massive renovation, rich use of colors. The effect is pleasant.



94. This geometrical world of rectangles almost symbolizes a perfect German "Ordnung".



95.



96. An example of city square, cityscape design below



97. One more reminder of another Berlin's pros - the beautiful public transport (and especially railway) system. This looks like intercity train though.



98. Canyons of perimetrical built-up again



99.



100. Jewish synagogue there

Wonderful photos Vecais! As far as I know the big "monstrous" building is a hospital and there are plans for a complete renovation of the facade (if it's not already in progress)
