Abstract
Savezna Republika Njemačka država je u srednjoj Europi od oko 82.500.000 stanovnika. Njezin glavni grad Berlin je kulturno, političko, društveno i gospodarsko središte Njemačke, a ujedno i njezin najveći grad sa oko 3.400.000 stanovnika. Nakon što je Drugi svjetski rat završio u svibnju 1945. godine potpunim porazom i bezuvjetnom kapitulacijom Njemačke, četiri su saveznika zaposjela Njemačku i podijelili Njemački Reich u četiri okupacijske zone. S obzirom na veliki broj izbjeglica koji su pokušavali pobjeći u Saveznu Republiku Njemačku, Njemačka Demokratska Republika nasilno je pokušavala zaustaviti val izbjeglica. U 2 sata i 30 minuta istočnonjemačka vlada zapečatila je granicu između Istočnog i Zapadnog Berlina i počela graditi zid koji je podijelio grad, a ujedno i dvije Njemačke države. Bijeg iz Istočne Njemačke nije bio moguć. Zid je konačno srušen 9. studenog 1989. godine a 3. listopada 1990., gotovo godinu dana nakon pada Berlinskog zida, Njemačka je ujedinjena. Tema ovog rada bila je upravo Berlinski zid, nekad i danas. Nekad je bio glavni simbol hladnog rata i podjele svijeta, a danas dvadeset i pet godina nakon njegovog pada, poznata je turistička atrakcija i znamenitost Berlina koja privlači milijune posjetitelja iz cijelog svijeta,a njegova valorizacija je svake godine sve veća.

The Federal Republic of Germany is a country in central part od Europe with approximately 82.5 million inhabitants. Berlin, Germany´s capital as well as its biggest city with cca. 3.4 million Inhabitants, is its cultural, political and socio economic canter. After the Second World War ended with complete defeat and unconditional capitulation of German forces in May 1945, four allies occupied Germany and divided German Reich into four occupational zones. Considering that a large number of refugees tried to flee to the Federal Republic of Germany, German Democratic Republic attempted to stop the wave of refugees in an extremely violent manner. At 2 hours and 30 minutes, East German government sealed the border between East and West Berlin and it began to built a wall that divided both the city and the two states. Escaping East Germany was impossible. The wall was finally torn down on the ninth of November 1989, while almost one year later, on October the third, Germany was united. Subject of this paper is the Berlin Wall, as it was then and as it is now. In the past, the Berlin War was the mail symbol of Cold War and world´s division, while today, twentyfive years after the Fall, it became top tourist attraction and one of Berlin´s landmarks which attracts millions of visitors from all around the world. Furthermore, its valorization is increasing with every year.

Die Bundesrepublik Deutschland ist ein Land in Mitteleuropa, das zirka 82.500.000 Einwohner hat. Die Hauptstadt Berlins ist ein kulturelles, politisches, gesellschaftliches und wirtschaftliches Zentrum Deutschands, sowohl auch die größte Stadt mit 3.400.000 Einwohner. Nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg im Mai 1945 endete, mit voller Niederlage und bedingungloser Kapitulation Detuschlands, haben die vier Alliierten Deutschland besetzt und das Deutsche Reich in vier Besatzungzonen geteilt. Aufgrund der großen Zahl der Flüchtlinge zu stoppen, die in die Bundesrepublik Deutschland fliehen versuchten. Innerhalb von 2 Stunden und 30 Minuten hat die Ostdeutsche Regierung die Grenze zwischen Ost und West Berlin geschlossen und hat begonnen die Mauer zu bauen, die die Stadt geteilt hat, somit auch die zwei deutschen Staaten. Die Flucht aus Ostdeutschland war nicht möglich. Die Mauer fiel endlich am 9. November 1989 und am 3. Oktober 1990, fast ein Jahr nach dem Fall der Berliner Mauer, wurde Deutschland geeinigt. Das Thema dieser Arbeit war gerade die Berliner Mauer damals und heute. Damals war die Mauer das Hauptsymbol des Kalten Kriegs und teilte die Welt. Die Mauer ist heute eine bekannte touristische Attraktion und Sehenswürdigkeit Berlins, die Millionen von Besuchern aus der ganzen Welt anzieht, und die Wert der Mauer wird jedes Jahr die größer.
