Germany Holiday Tour

In the present scenario, Germany is the largest economy of Europe and plays a significant role in the defense, economic and political fields. During cold war, this country was divided into two parts east and west, German Democratic Republic and Federal Republic of Germany respectively. The eastern part was a puppet of USSR, whereas the west flourished exponentially. After the fall of USSR, the unification of both parts took place.

Germany played a key role in starting a common currency and founded European Economic Community in coordination with other founder members. Germany is the capital of Berlin and currency is Euro.
