Metro Berlin


What is the difference between the remotest place on earth and Berlin? Of course its Metro.

So you’ve hitch-hiked through Latin America, stalked rare beasts in Africa and trekked your way through a remote place. You’re pretty well traveled. Before you get ideas about being an intrepid explorer, however, consider this. Very little of the world’s land can now be thought of as inaccessible, according to a new map of connectedness created by Italian researchers for European Commission’s Joint Research Centre and the World Bank.

The authors combined a series of maps to create a new map of connectedness showing the most interconnected and remote places on earth. The maps are based on a model which calculated how long it would take to travel to the nearest city of 50,000 or more people by land or water. The model combines information on terrain and access to road, rail and river networks. It also considers how factors such as altitude, steepness of terrain and hold-ups like border crossings slow travel.

The remotest place is in Tibet at 34.7°N, 85.7°E check the map

The most tragic aspect of this map is that few places can still considered remote. For sure we cannot say that bars, places, currywrust are remote in Berlin. According to me Berlin is one of the most well connected city with its multiple lines covering large sections of the city. The Metro in Berlin can transport more than 750 people at one ride. The U-Bahn network is of 170 stations and trains are available every 4 to 5 minutes. The trains of Berlin Metro play almost for 24 hours through day and night. PAY ATTENTION there is a random check by the ticket collectors, they have the ability to camouflage themselves :))))… it’s very funny to see the next disguise, no way it can be everyone…
Ah if you are planning to visit Berlin and you want to know how the benches of every single metro station look like, then you have to visit this website!

Enjoy Berlin!!!!

This is proven in the politically-driven exhibition “Selfies from Oranienplatz," of which the opening event will be taking place on the 16th of October as part of the European Month of Photography in Berlin.

    Solar Eclipses and Beyond

    The skies were busy with magic today — or maybe it was just the solar eclipse that caused all that ruckus? Decked out in space-age goggles and other various sun viewing paraphernalia, groups of people gathered as the moon moved between the sun and the earth this morning across Europe. Only a few lucky folks witnessed the total eclipse, and here at Vienna HQ, the greatest moment of the partial eclipse happened at 10:45 A.M. and lasted only a few minutes. We stopped everything we were doing to join the sky watchers crew and share in this astonishing moment. Check out these brilliant solar-inspired shots to celebrate the occasion!

    Top 5 Noteworthy Architectural Details

    A building is a story of collective effort. The people who dreamed it up and polished every surface are anonymous to many, but their work announces a unique identity. For tourists, architecture is a marker of place, like souvenirs with flags and national costumes. For the camera-lugging traveler, a strong visual statement is what matters most.
