Once the seat of the Prussian kings and later of the German Kaiser, Potsdam earned its place in the modern history as the host of the Potsdam Conference, during which the winning Allies decided the fate of the post-war world following the end of WWII. The actual place of the conference - the Cecilienhof palace – complete with other local attractions, make the city a largest World Heritage Site in Germany.
