The decision of locate the effective capital of germany (i.e. one performing all major capital functions) in a federal state with history so unique and complicated as german history is, was proceeded by a long parliamentary and public discussion. This paper is an attempt at tracing and analysing this debate, with special consideration give to the peculiarity (or uniqueness) of the concept of the german capital city, its position and role within the German federal system. An important aim of the paper is to indicate which factors in the debate turned out to be the decisive ones; which of the arguments finally determined the location of the capital in Berlin : both the symbolic capital city and the seat of parliament and government. - (BJ)
