All in all, more than 1 million people participated in the central festive events in the German capital, with some 500,000 watching the opening of Berlin's historical and architectural symbol in Paris Square and Unter den Linden street.

German President Johannes Rau and Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder with their wives, speakers of both houses of parliament Wolfgang Thierse and Klaus Wowereit and many foreign guests, including former US President Bill Clinton and Moscow Mayor Yuri Luzhkov, participated in the ceremony.

Yuri Luzhkov congratulated Berlin residents on the "happy and grand event" - the completion of the Brandenburg Gates reconstruction, and wished both partner cities, Moscow and Berlin, further productive cooperation.
