    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.

    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.
