Potsdam (19th century)

This Prussian city is situated near the river Havel, an area of lakes and forests. It became world famous because of the so called “big three” leaders’ conference (Truman, Churchill, Stalin). The conference took place from July 16 to August 2, 1945, and was held in the Cecilienhof palace of the Hohenzollern family.
