Sanssouci park and palace

Sanssouci park and palace in Potsdam are a worthy answer to the French Versailles. This palace complex appeared in 1745-1747 upon the order of the King of Prussia Friedrich II the Great. Summer palace is rather modest, but is decorated with great taste in rococo style. Art and luxury items are preserved here – from paintings and sculptures to vases and furniture that belonged to Prussian kings. In the local picture gallery don’t miss the painting of the great Caravaggio “The Incredulity of Saint Thomas”. 

Besides the Sanssouci palace the following objects are located on the territory of the huge park: Chinese tea house, New Palace, Orangery Palace, Charlottenhof Palace, historical railways station Kaiserbahnhof which was the personal station of the Kaiser, belvedere and Roman baths of the 19th century. The latter were never real baths, as from the beginning this construction was only a tribute to the Roman architecture. However you still have to take a look inside the “baths”: their luxurious interior is really impressive!
