Reichstag – Berlin
The Reichstag building is among the most famous landmarks and historical monuments which were almost demolished and reconstructed in the modern way. The reason of the destruction was the Reichstag fire in the Adolf hitler’s time. The reason of the fire is still unknown because the Nazis, Germans and communists blamed each other for this happening. The building was reconstructed without the dome whereas the dome idea was implemented later by modern architectures.
This is considered as the seat of the German parliament but some parts are opened for the visitors to have the Reichstag tours. The roof and dome have the wonderful sightseeing and there is the restaurant in the dome where the wonderful traditional and continental food is served.
