2- (Wiki): "It is the tallest church in the world, and the 4th tallest structure built before the 20th century, with a steeple measuring 161.5 metres (530 ft)[2] and containing 768 steps. Where is the world's tallest church located and what is its proper name?

3- This bridge in Berlin's Wannssee/Potsdam area was called 'The Bridge of Spies" in the Cold War because spies from both sides were exchanged on this bridge between East and West Germany/Berlin.
