    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.

In the period from 14 to 27 February 1826, the planning was worked out, in which the king himself played a decisive role.

    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.

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

    Here you can find Russian flair in the middle of Potsdam. On certain days you can also visit the large courtyards that belong to the wooden houses. Here you can take apples and plums with you. The residents then wish to throw a small fee into the cash register provided.
    I found the museum a little overpriced, but you get original Russian Moroshenoje (Мороженое - Russian ice cream) for it. Not the imitation ice cream from the German supermarket, but the original.

    Wikipedia: The Russian colony Alexandrowka is located in the north of the city of Potsdam. King Friedrich Wilhelm III. von Prussia had it put on in 1826/27 for the last twelve Russian singers of a choir that formerly consisted of 62 soldiers.Due to the family and friendly relations between the Hohenzollern and Romanow houses, the colony was named as a memorial to the memory of Tsar Alexander I, who died in 1825. As part of the Potsdam cultural landscape, the colony is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
