Berlin is the modern capital of Germany and has a population of more than 4.5 million people. The city is famed for its history, architecture, nightlife, museums, and palaces. The first real documented proof of the beginnings of Berlin date from the late 12th century. In 1307 the towns that formed the seed of the city merged, and Berlin was born. The city rapidly rose to prominence, and in 1701 with the coronation of Frederick I, Berlin became the capital of Prussia. The Industrial Revolution had a profound effect on the city, and the population ballooned as the railway was set up. Today, Berlin retains its key role in the affairs of Europe on a political and a cultural level, drawing in people from all walks of life.
