Germany Day 7: Egyptian and Roman Artifacts, Berlin Sunset

On my seventh day in Berlin, I ventured to the Neues Museum, which has an impressive collection of artifacts, the most notable of which is the Nefertiti bust; and the impressive Soviet War Memorial in Treptower Park, which includes a 40-foot-tall statue of a Red Army soldier holding a sword and child and standing on a broken swastika.

There was also a sunset behind the TV Tower, seen from Treptower Park across the Spree River, that was too good to pass up.
