Dismantling the Palace of the Republic

The first time I went to Berlin back in 2006 I noticed there was this ugly building "under construction". I was curious and I took a picture that was buried in my hard drive. Today when I was cleaning up my computer I found this picture again and I realized they were not building anything, but it was actually the other way around: They were dismantling the "Palace of the Republic". This building was the seat of the parliament of the German Democratic Republic. A couple of years later I visited Berlin and the construction was gone. Berlin will always be one of my favorite cities in Europe.
