The historical and lively district of Mitte also contains Museum Island, with a selection of interesting museums including the famous Pergamon Museum, the National Gallery and the Museum of Antiquities. Berlin Cathedral (Berliner Dom) is also on Museum Island.Unter den Linden crosses the historic centre of Berlin which over time accumulated several prestigious buildings in the 18th century.
