During my Easter break my family and I travelled to Dresden, the capital of the German state Sachsen, and Berlin, the capital of Germany.
This post is going to be about Dresden. At first our plan was just to stay in Berlin for a couple of days but then my father told us that we should combine the trip to Berlin with a day in Dresden. At first we were a bit skeptical that this city could be interesting but we decided to visit it because nobody of us has ever been to Dresden before.
So during the second world war the city of Dresden was completely destroyed and afterwards it was cleared up, all ruins were brought out of town so that there was a big free area where they planed to rebuild everything the way it had been. Now the old town of Dresden is a beautiful place to visit with old buildings which have been rebuilt. On some structures one can see light and dark elements, the dark ones are the pieces that were found after the demolition and the light ones are the pieces that had to have been added to the ruins that were left over.
So all in all I can say that the town of Dresden is very interesting to visit because of its old but new buildings and architecture. The old town of Dresden is often called the “Elbflorenz” because of the river Elbe that is located in Dresden and several museums which have many pieces of art leading from the 15th century and the architecture in Dresden.
I would recommend everyone to explore the city especially the old and new town of Dresden, how it is called.
Hope you enjoyed the photos and my experience visiting Dresden!
Have a nice day!
