Pariser Platz sign and TV Tower

The square in front of the Brandenburg Gate is named after the French capital. Until 1989 it was a no-go area by the Brandenburg Gate just inside East Berlin. The TV Tower was constructed by the GDR Government in 1973.

Times have changed, but the East Berlin TV tower remains for me a symbol of the Russian Soviet influence in Berlin. The name of the square harks back to a significant French influence, dating back to the migration to Berlin of the Huguenots.
