Here are a few cities with mind-blowing public art.

From classic statues and abstract sculptures to murals and street art, cities throughout the world are covered with public art. Street art has grown popular all throughout the world, with festivals encouraging it and municipal governments promoting it in many areas.

Here are a few notable examples of cities with extremely beautiful and mind-blowing public art.

On the remnants of the city’s 28-year-old wall, one of the most beautiful and important pieces of art may be found. The East Side Gallery, now designated as a monument, houses the work of foreign artists who commemorate and celebrate the city’s political past. Visitors may learn about Berlin’s diverse public art through a museum dedicated to the subject and a variety of art walks.
