Why do citizens of Europe build walls? What is so solid in a wall to sustain power of division? Berlin Wall is one from examples of enactments of political power. I want to catalog the most popular walls. Below I give list of names. The Long Walls (450-404 B.C.) from Athens to Piraeus; The Walls of Servious (378 B. C.); The Wall of Hadrian (121 A.C.); The Walls of Antonius (282 A.C); The Wall of Constantine (324 A.C.) The Wall of Theodosius II (408 A.C.); The Wall of Warsaw ghetto (1941); Berlin Wall (1961-1989). Gathered together they give us horizon of possible barriers; differences; ethnicity and economic embargo; cold war and finally situation of a new world order.

My aim is to create an open table of content with quantitative and qualitative measurement. First I want to clear differentiate all through geographical and topological procedures. Second I want to write about architectural and decorating differences. In third I ask about cultural differences based on religion and economy. I try to finish with drawing conclusions giving especially stress on Berlin Wall.
