This is Germany

This is Germany. From the rough Alps to the beaches of the North Sea and the Baltic Sea. With its baroque bavarian monasteries, beer gardens and mountain huts and the half timbered houses in its romantic towns. Majestic gothic cathedrals, renaissance styled operas and mighty skyscrapers shape this land as well as the Rhein river with its medieval castles. The palaces and historical monuments give Germany its soul. The modern Autobahnen, airports and economical hubs assure the strength and prosperity of this country in the heart of Europe. Germany is tradition and modernism in one, Germany is an old nation that has been shaped by its people for over a thousand years and will continue its way to a bright future in accordance, friendship and respect to its neighbours and the world. Germany is my fatherland and the country that gives me my unique identity. We have dark and bright years in our history and yet we arose from ruins after every conflict and kept our place among the first nations on this world. Germany is more than a piece of land. Germany is an idea, a spirit created by generations of people. Germany is a flame, and every German is one spark and part of a greater community.
