The Lustschloss (or: Pleasure Palace) on Peacock Island was built in the late 18th century and is part of the UNESCO World Heritage today. Everything on the Island was built for Friedrich Wilhelm II./III., and it was used as a summer residence. Today you can easily visit the Island, which is a great thing to do when you’re in Berlin. There is a small ferry setting over each half an hour and on the Island there are not too many people. So you can enjoy the nature, find wild running peacocks and wonder about the architecture.
It’s been some time since the last photo of Bergamo. But everytime I’m processing photos from that time, I wish to go back to that place. If you see those mansions, don’t you imagine how it would be to live in one of them?
When our host drove us to this place, I had no idea where we were. Those walls seemed strange to me, as i couldn’t see at all what’s behind them. I really didn’t believe that behind there is the city we wanted to visit, but it’s been true. In ancient times, those walls have been the walls of a fortress.
The Centennial Hall, the UNESCO World Heritage in Wroclaw, is not only the hall itself and the singing fountain in front of it. Next to it, there is the Japanese Garden I showed you some photos of and the fountain is surrounded by this Circuit which serves as an interesting capture.
I wouldn’t have been able to take that picture if I and my girlfriend wouldn’t have been horribly lost. We ended up walking around for something like an hour, searching our way along the lake Wannsee in south-west Berlin. But as the saying goes, the trip is more valuable than the destination. And so we found this nice apartment. I mean I don’t know if I would like to live in it, but it’s an interesting piece of modern architecture.
