President Park visits art and photo exhibits representing unification in Berlin Updated: 2014-03-27 16:41:37 KST

We begin this Thursday evening in Berlin where President Park Geun-hye has kicked off the third day of her state visit to Germany.
She started off the day by looking around art and photo exhibits that represent unification and freedom.
The Korean president stopped by Berlin's East Side Gallery, which is what's left of the Berlin Wall.
More than 1-hundred artists from around the world painted murals there to commemorate the 1989 fall of the Berlin Wall that led to German unification.
President Park also visited a photo exhibition that compares scenes from the demilitarized zone on the Korean peninsula and Germany's Grunes Band , which is now an ecological park.
The president had proposed turning the DMZ that divides the two Koreas into something similar.
