weekend #15 photos
Greetings from BEARlin!
What a city!
Impossible to explore enough in a couple of days.
But I’m happy to experience a drip now.
It’s easy to go back – only 1,5 hrs from Helsinki!
This is a view from air (or views)
shopping, shopping, shopping
shopping street Kurfürstendamm with lots of shadows!
All THE brands are here (not for me though)
I like small side streets with real feeling of local lifestyle…
Public transportation is excellent. I loved to travel by bus!
Metro is quick way to travel but you can’t see as much as traveling by bus!
You can see bears everywhere in Berlin.
The first buddy bears in Berlin
“The story of the Buddy Bears started with an artistic event in Berlin in 2001.
Inspired by the idea of bringing art in the streets of a metropolis
like the cow parade in Zurich and New York,
the initiators of the Buddy Bears, Klaus and Eva Herlitz,
decided to start a street art project in Berlin.
It was quickly agreed that a bear would be the ideal sculpture for the backdrops of the
The bear – Berlin’s heraldic animal with a high level of public appeal –
was envisaged to capture the hearts of Berliners
and their guests in various different designs.”
I posted of these buddy bears when they were in Helsinki 2010
I’m too busy to post more pics for this post
but there will be more next week!
Have a relaxing weekend!
