POTS­DAM

Female (Malaysia) - - TRAVEL HIT -

Lo­cated at the bor­der of Ber­lin, Pots­dam is filled with palaces and parks as it used to be a res­i­den­tial area to the Prus­sian kings back in 1918. If you’re some­one who ap­pre­ci­ates his­tory and cul­ture, then spend a full-day here as the jour­ney from cen­tral Ber­lin to this UN­ESCO World Her­itage Site eas­ily takes about 45 min­utes. Out of all the palaces that I vis­ited, the one that I loved the most was Sanssouci that was filled with 10 rooms and built on a hill in the cen­tre of the park. The in­te­rior of this palace caught my at­ten­tion be­cause each room came with unique Ro­coco style of ar­chi­tec­ture that brought out the story of par­tic­u­lar events that took place there. If you’re al­ready here, do stop by at the Bran­den­burg Gate that’s lo­cated about 15 min­utes away, which is the main sym­bol of Ber­lin and Ger­many’s di­vi­sion dur­ing the Cold War.
