A Phoenix From the Ashes
From the Church of Our Lady to the Residenz Palace, Zwinger Palace to the Semper Opera House, Dresden is blessed with an abundance of cultural and historical significance and architectural gems. In fact, Dresden’s wealth of architecture is so prolific it inspired the creation of one of history’s most elaborate styles: Dresden Baroque. What is so amazing is that the city was virtually destroyed by bombs during WWII. Much of the architecture that you see today was rebuilt in the last 20 years but is identical to how buildings looked before the war. The builders used detailed plans from the original structures to replicate the architecture.
