Description

The historical centre of Dresden is located on the left bank of the Elbe, at the peak of a graceful river bend. Protected for centuries by mighty fortifications, the Saxon capital developed splendour and activity.

Even today the buildings from the Renaissance, baroque and 19th century determine the Elbe front and the face of our city. Viewed from the opposite bank or from one of the Elbe bridges Dresden presents itself at first glance as a cultural city of European rank.

In spite of vast destruction during the Second World War, the Old City part of Dresden has preserved or regained fascinating ensembles. The most famous symbol of reconstruction in the city centre is the Dresden Frauenkirche Church, the magnificent baroque dome, which already today dominates the city centre.

Many important cultural institutions are situated along the Old City-side of the Elbe banks: from the Old Masters Picture Gallery to the “Green Vault”, the treasure chamber of the Saxon electors and kings.

The Old City is likewise the centre of city life, for in the Saxon State Parliament the destiny of Saxony is determined and in the town hall that of the city. Around the Altmarkt square and Prager Strasse shopping centres, restaurants, culture and work are to be found.
