Great Second Life Destinations: Potsdam's Rococo Splendor at Parc de Sanssouci


Sanssouci is the former summer palace of Frederick the Great, King of Prussia, in Potsdam, near Berlin in what is now known as Germany. It was built between 1745 - 1747 in the Rococo style, and is much smaller and more intimate than France's Versailles, which it is frequently compared to. The name Sanssouci brings to mind gorgeous architecture, fountains, statues, and lush plantings-- which it's Second Life virtualization shows off to good effect. This is a retail sim -- there are many shops in the arrival "street" which sell fashion and period home decorations. The "role play" area-- which is very effectively done in a low prim construction-- is a great place to take photos and relax in a park like setting. Recommended for a visit.

I used Windlight Sky Setting TOR Places "Bentham" to take these images.
