When we arrived in Dresden, it was cool and drizzling. Despite these unfavorable conditions, the silhouette of the city center was beautiful from afar. And then the gloomy day did not spoil the impression, although the city is even more beautiful in sunny weather.

Dresden is a very unusual and beautiful city with a tragic fate. In February 1945 Allied planes destroyed the central historical part of the city from the ground. There are practically no entire buildings left.
