Berlin, in northeastern Germany, lies just 70km west of the border with Poland. The country's largest city, it has been reinstated as its capital, having served as capital to the Kingdom of Prussia (1701–1918), the German Empire (1871–1918), the Weimar Republic (1919–1933) and the Third Reich (1933–1945). The river Spree runs right through Berlin and it is surrounded by beautiful lakes which, alongside parks, forests and gardens, make up around a third of the city's territory.
