"Russian Quarter" Alexandrowka - Russian Quarter Tip by Kate-Me

  Paul and Gregor at Russian house
by Kate-Me

Our walk took us past the old Russian quarter, with these quaint very old Russian houses.
Many of these timber houses had been lived in by many generations of the same family. There were family name plates in Cyrillic text which were nailed on the front of the house. Each generation added another plate, so in this way the houses were like living family trees with their own history.

Directions: In the north of Potsdam.
