There are such famous festivals as Berlin Film Festival, Theater Festival and Jazz Festival "Jazzfest". Every day Berlin offers a lot of cultural events, exhibitions and shows.

This city can be called not only a cultural capital, but also the capital of food and entertainment. There are thousands of restaurants, bars, clubs and discos. And the prices are quite acceptable.

In Berlin it is very convenient to travel by public transport. There are metro, buses, trams and trolleybuses here. You can buy a single ticket for the whole day. And if you buy a Berlin Welcome Card, then in addition to free travel on public transport, it will give you the opportunity to visit major attractions for free or at significant discounts.

And some tips from experienced tourists:
In Berlin, everyone does not care how you are dressed. Therefore, dress comfortably.
Always carry a copy of your passport or hotel card.
Ignore people offering you or asking for help on the street. Most likely it's scams.
Do not eat food on the street. Around there are cafes and eateries.
And although Germany is famous for its beer, it is better to drink it in Bavaria, and in Berlin, try the better incomparable German wines.
