The Glienicke Bridge

The Glienicke Bridge
During the Cold War, Glienicke Bridge was one of the few places in the world where the Soviet Union and the United States stood directly opposite each other. Thus, “deals” could be made here without any of their allies having any say in the matter. The bridge lies at an isolated joint where US-occupied West-Berlin met Soviet-occupied Potsdam, which was in East Germany.
The United States and the Soviet Union used it four times to exchange captured spies during the Cold War, and the Bridge was referred to as the Bridge of Spies by reporters.
