After the end of the Second World War, the city was occupied by four coalition forces, and then the occupied areas of Britain, France, and the United States were united and became West Berlin, surrounded by The Berlin Wall and the rest occupied by the Soviet Union became East Berlin (the capital of the German Democratic Republic).  After reunification of Germany on October 3, 1990, Berlin became the capital of the whole German federal state, hosting 147 foreign embassies.  After the Deutsche Bundestag’s Declaration of Capital in 1991, the city also carried out its function as the headquarters of government and parliament since 1999.
