History has left its indelible mark on the streets and buildings of Dresden, the easternmost major German cities and a symbol of the country's reconstruction.
Some specialists often speak of Dresden (in German, "Dresden") as the "city" of Baroque although, after the terrible bombing of the Second World War, the city lost some of the most significant buildings of that style.
That said, however, does not detract from this city the great merit of having very unique buildings and monuments, from ancient royal palaces and churches to factories today reconverted for other purposes.
Dresden, located 500 kilometers from Hamburg and Berlin 190, has been increasing its tourism just for the elegance of its picturesque streets. Among the highlights to visit; l Frauenkirche Church (which dates from 1723 but was partially destroyed in 1945 and rebuilt in this decade) and Dresdner Dresden Castle, Baroque and Romanesque palace inspiration.
Much more recently and more curious is the "Yenidze" very similar to a mosque for years hosted a snuff factory construction. In what appear Yenidze minarets are actually chimneys and no relation to Islam, the building is first and foremost a tourist attraction. Indeed, in the Kuppel restaurant , located at the top of the building, you get an excellent view of the city.
Finally, there has been visited Dresden if paced call Brühl Terraces, a vast architectural complex that overlooks the River Elbe and including from the School of Fine Arts to Delphinbrunnen (source "Dolphin"). Caminándola and exploring it, there is little doubt about why a poet called the city "German Florence".
