Munich is always the most important place of Bavaria with its history, culture and technology… II. The city, nearly sixty percent of which was destroyed in the Second World War, preferred to preserve its historical texture and build many things in accordance with the original instead of building skyscrapers. That’s why I think that most of the time, while walking around Munich, you feel like you are walking around the streets of a quiet city. This must be why they named it “Millionendorf” meaning “village of millions”. Taking its name from the monks, Munich is also the capital of the state of Bavaria. It is an ideal city to visit with its historical streets, magnificent museums, palaces and huge parks. In addition to its cultural and economic richness, it has always been one of the most loved and livable places in Germany with its free environment. Especially the state of Bavaria is one of the corners of paradise… Therefore, it is a place you cannot see no matter how long you stay. It is impossible not to admire the care they show to protect nature and historical cities.
