In the northern corner of Potsdam sits an unusual neighborhood, Alexandrowka. This Russian colony was built by Frederick Wilhelm III from 1826-27 to honor his great friendship with Czar Alexander I.
Today, the peaceful Russian Colony is home a few descendants of the original inhabitants and is still full of orchards. Time your visit right and you could enjoy a wonderful Apple strudel for your afternoon Kaffee und Kuchen
Would you be surprised to know this Russian Colony is in Germany?
