Alexanderplatz is a large square in East Berlin. It was a cattle market until the 18th century. Then, after The Russian Tsar Alexander, I visited the place in 1805 – the square was named after him. It became a central transportation center at the end of the 19th century and the center of Berlin's nightlife in the 1920s.
After WWII, the damaged square was reconstructed, and the high TV tower was built. In addition, the square houses shopping centers and souvenir stands.
