Potsdam

Located a swift 25 kilometers from Berlin, is the regal town of Potsdam, Germany. Once the royal residence of the Prussian kings and the German Kaiser, its city planning embodied ideas of the Age of Enlightenment crafting a serene and elegant balance of architecture and landscape. Through strife and war years, Potsdam has prevailed with little damage, and the residents' care of the historical municipality creates an utterly picturesque town that appears to rise from a fairy tale.
