In the middle of the city of Potsdam, Germany is a quaint and pretty little Russian village called Alexandrowka. This village is decorated with beautiful gardens, historical buildings, well-constructed cathedrals, castles and ancient houses. All of its elements showcase the authenticity of Russian culture.
It has 12 small farms, a royal country house, a guard house and a chapel which are a must-visit. All these structures are renovated and are as beautiful as they can be.
Some houses have museums and restaurants which are open to tourists and locals. Meals with beautiful views along with precious knowledge about Russian reign are sure to top the list! The half-timbered houses have an attached log cabin, giving us the vintage feels!
The village is named after Russian Czar Alexander I by King Fredrick William III, who wanted to leave a ‘lasting monument’ for his dear friend.
Have a look at how adorable this hamlet is!
