Germany is today the most populous and affluent democracy in Europe, and one of the most significant countries on the planet.  Germany participated in, and suffered through, the devastating results of World Wars' I and II, and many decades of Communist influence. Constantly rebuilding since the collapse of the Berlin Wall. and the unification of East and West Germany in 1990, it's a very modern, sophisticated country with a fascinating past. Tourists flock to Germany to visit the stylish cities, legendary medieval castles, and the hundreds of additional cultural and historic wonders, both past and present.
