Berlin, the German capital, along with London, Paris and Rome, is one of the most visited metropolises in Europe. The demolition of the Wall on 9 November 1989 marked the dawn of a new era for Berlin - an era in which the most significant elements have been the reunification of Germany in 1990, the decision regarding the location of the German capital in 1991 and the relocation of government and parliament to the traditional centre of the nation - in the heart of Berlin. Berlin is also a rapidly developing city when it comes to shopping. With Kudamm (Kurfürstendamm), Friedrichstraße and Potsdamer Platz it boasts three different shopping centres.
