Experience an immersive delve into centuries of Prussian history, on a journey to cities that were once at the heart of one of world’s most prominent kingdoms. In each destination, handpicked for its historical significance, discoveries of fascinating monuments, palaces and castles created during the rule of the now vanished region’s iconic leaders will offer an insight into when Prussia was in its pomp. There are symbolic sites to uncover throughout; amongst the highlights are the seven surviving city gates of Kaliningrad – the birthplace of the First King of Prussia – in Russia’s Kaliningrad Oblast exclave and, in Poland, Gdansk’s Teutonic Order-era, UNESCO-listed Melbork Castle and Szczecin many monuments dedicated to Bismarck. In Germany, tour from Travemunde to Berlin and see its mix of Prussian treasures, from imposing Brandenburg Gate to the gilded gems of Charlotteburg Palace. Alternatively, perhaps head to Potsdam to explore the beautiful grounds of Frederick the Great’s summer retreat and final resting place, Sanssouci Palace.
