Hello everyone. As you know, our journey in the Netherlands unfortunately is over but don’t worry because there is another beautiful nation that is waiting for us. We are talking about Germany.
Let us introduce it!
Let’s start from the political aspect of this nation. Germany is a federal parliamentary republic of sixteen states (called Länder). Its capital but also the most popular and best known city is Berlin (we are sure that everyone knows it!).
However Germany is considered the most populated country in the European Union (after Russia). This is also due to the fact that Germany is a popular destination for immigrants, especially in the Rhine-Ruhr area (such as the cities of Düsseldorf and Cologne) but also in Berlin, Hamburg, Monaco, Frankfurt… To sum up they are in all the great metropolis. This encouraged the coexistence among people of different ethnicities and religions (despite this, Christianity is the official religion of Germany)
It is nation located in the central-western Europe and is bordered to the north by Denmark, to the east by Poland and the Czech Republic, to the south by Austria and Switzerland and to the west by France, Luxembourg, Belgium and the Netherlands. It is also bordered by the North Sea and the Baltic Sea. There are several rivers in the area and they are: Danube, Elbe, Rhine, Main, Oder, Weser and Ems (all pretty famous rivers).
The official language of Germany is the German. Anyway there are some dialects: Frisian language, Franconian languages, Saxon languages and so on (easily understandable by those who know German).
As for the economy there isn’t much to say, Germany is a great power and the financial center of the nation is Frankfurt. In addition to this, Germany is also very developed in the scientific and technological areas. It also has a dense railway network.
Let’s know something about the climate. That of Germany is an Atlantic climate. Winter is pretty rigid (with snowfall) in every area of the Germany. On the other side the summer tends to be cool in some areas and hot and muggy in other (like in the center for example).
Sports are really common, especially soccer and Formula 1.
So much to say about its history. Pretty much everyone knows its historical events, such as: Nazism, the Berlin Wall (which divided the west from the east). The start of the various artistic currents such as: the “Sturm und Drang”, Romanticism. The music also had an important role with Beethoven’s birth, as well as the philosophy with the advent of Immanuel Kant. Well,there is to learn!
With this we finish the presentation of this vast nation. As you can imagine there will be so much to know and admire and we can’t wait to take you around Germany. If you want to join us, you just have to stay tuned for the next updates.
Good new adventure to all!
