Potsdam


Potsdam is the capital city of the state of Brandenburg in Germany. As of 2007, Potsdam had an estimated population of 148,691.

Although Berlin was the official capital of Prussia and later the German Empire, the Prussian kings (later German Kaisers) used Potsdam as the location for their court, until the last Kaiser, Kaiser Wilhelm II abdicated in 1918. However, the city is most famous for being the location that the victorious allied leaders (Harry S. Truman, Josef Stalin and Winston Churchill, then Clement Attlee) held a series of conferences on the future of Europe in 1945.

Product Description:
Potsdam has, in Germany, a similar status that Windsor has in the United Kingdom or Versailles in France: it was the residence of the Prussian kings and the German Kaiser until 1918. Interconnected lakes and cultural landmarks―in particular, the parks and palaces of Sanssouci―create unique landscapes. The Potsdam Conference, the major post-World War II conference between the victorious Allies, was held at another palace in the area, the Cecilienhof. Designated a World Heritage Site in 1991, Potsdam is a magnificent synthesis of dream and reality.
