What To Do for 2 Days in Dresden?

What To Do for 2 Days in Dresden?, Dresden, Germany (B)

Dresden is internationally renowned not only for its great cultural heritage but also for contemporary music, arts-and film festivals. Dresden is the capital of Saxony (Sachsen), situated along the banks of River Elbe. The city is famous for its beautiful architecture and as a center for arts.We visited Dresden for 2 days and it was in connection with our Prague trip. The journey from Prague to Dresden is only about 2 hours by train.

During WWII, the city was heavily bombarded and lost most of its cultural architecture but after that, the city has managed to resurrect its charm by rebuilding the most important landmarks. Alongside this reconstruction, Dresden has many remarkable modern architectures also. This is truly the mixture of the historic and modern world.

Our first destination was Royal/Residence palace. Dresden has a rich history and it is very well preserved and displayed in this museum. Especially, the Historic Green Vault museum displays the Baroque treasure chamber in its full splendor. The precious objects made of amber and ivory, gemstone vessels and elegant bronze statuettes and many more such treasures, once owned by the King ‘August the Strong’, are on display. I will definitely recommend this museum. There are many more exhibitions in the area but we did not visit all. I am sure, those will also be worthy of visiting.  ......
