The attractions of Potsdam in Germany that a English city guide in Potsdam in Germany can reveal to you
Located a short distance from Berlin, this city is only a quarter covered with buildings and streets - the rest are lakes and green areas. The Prussian King Frederick the Great chose Potsdam as his summer residence in the 18th century. The magnificent Sanssouci park, its regular gardens, fountains and stunning buildings are the hallmark of modern Potsdam, although all this seems too important to accept the literal meaning of the French name of the park; "No worries". This place is Frederick's idea of escaping from the concerns about the state.
Potsdam had a lot of starts during World War II. Later, the communist government of East Germany razed many monuments to the ground. Since the reunification of Germany in 1990, many attempts have been made to rebuild it, but some important plans (for example for the stately Stadtschloss, the Emperor's former winter residence) have been suspended, and only the Fortunaportal Gate (Gate of Fate) was rebuilt in 2002.
The Stadtschloss was located in the centre of the old town, next to the old market square, today dominated by the classicist St. Nicholas Church. The 18th century old town hall building, crowned by the figure of Atlas, is also located here. Other interesting sights include the French oval church, the 18th century Dutch quarter with its red brick houses, built to remind Dutch craftsmen of their homeland and the Potsdam version of the Brandenburg Gate from Berlin. There is also a Russian quarter built by emigrants in 1825.
Potsdam's weight and attractiveness can be judged on the basis of the fact that its palaces and parks occupy three positions on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
