    The Russian colony was 1826-1827 at the request of Frederick William III. designed to commemorate his deceased friend Tsar Alexander I. It consists of a total of twelve small farmsteads and a boarding house on a hippodrome ground plan and a chapel on the associated Kapellenberg and a corresponding house of the overseer of the chapel, which was also referred to as a royal country house, since there entertained the king a tea room. The model for these unique architectural forms of the homesteads was the Art Village of Glasowo in the Park of Pavlovsk, built by Tsar Alexander I in 1815.

    Who is in Potsdam should not miss this. The charm of these houses is unique.

    A piece of Russia in the middle of Potsdam is the Russian colony Alexandrowka. There is a small museum here, where you can get the real Moroshenoje (мороженое) from Russia. On the open day you can harvest apples and plums here. The residents are happy about a small fee, if possible in euros, because nobody wants rubles here.

    The restaurant in the Russian colony is definitely worth a visit.

    In the middle of the Russian colony there is the "Russian tea house" with a nice beer garden. Here you can fill pelmenis appropriately
