We (and the old lady are the only ppl) in Potsdam ;)
I always knew, that Potsdam was a quite important town, just few km from Berlin - it was residence town - there is a palais, a big park - but this facts knows everyone;)
I thought - it shoyuld be quite a big town (i mean - great buildings, large wide avenues and so on) - since it's almost like my city - but .... no, the city center - very cute - looks more like in a medium town - houses only of two floors make you feel to be in a relatively small town.
We parked the car in one of those small streets of the old town and went at a bar to have a coffe - it was about noon and so we enjoyed Milchkaffee - sitting outside - and looking the very few ppl walking.

The second weird thing was there were very very few people on the streets - they all must have slept at that time still hahahaha.
But then we walked to the park and to the Palais Sanssouci - it seemed like the whole city were in the park hahahaha (kidding - there were many tourists, but also some bikers and joggers).
We visited the Sansouci an then headed to the Chinesisches Teehaus (Chinese Teahouse), which made this kind of great and weird imression - it was like u were in a different part of the world - and then i relized - how vain all the kings, princes and so on were! They let make such things while they nations were living in dirty holes;) tsk, tsk, tsk! But the place is really nice.

Then we visited the Palais Nouveau - ate something and get back to the town. We walked through the Holländisches Viertel (holland borrogh) -  straigh to the Nikolaikirche. Unfortunately the 'greatest' church was invisible - covered for restaurations and improvements - this huge building lets you hope for the great art works inside but is rather 'poor' like most of protestant churches. I was i bit dissapointed with this church, cuz we walked pretty long way to get there and see it. ;)
The neighbourhood of the Nikolaikirche is rather bad as well - commiblocks and similar awful buiding. This let us go back to the older part of the town, to the small nice streets.
Our way home was even better the the ride to Potsdam - we didn't stuck, didn't get into trobles just drove smooth to sweet Poland;)

It's beautiful in Sansouci isn't it. I spent a day there in 2003 and loved it.
