Dresden, capital city of the Free State of Saxony. Famous for being the home of the oldest running Christmas market in Germany and for being on my Travel Bucket-List for ages (well maybe not famous for that but hey, a girl can dream right? ^^). News is, I can finally cross it off, Dresden was the last stop of our Saxony trip (you can read more about it HERE and HERE).
Located in the bank of the river Elbe and by the Czech border, Dresden is a cultural and historical hub since the middle ages, and a baroque and rococo jewel. Unfortunately most of its historical city center was distroyed towards the end of WWII. But thanks to a magnific and exhaustive restoration process, important building such as the wold renowned Semperoper or the Dresdner Frauenkirche can be enjoyed once again. If you don't believe me, grab a cuppa coffee (or hot cocoa if you're so inclined) and keep looking!
Dresden has quickly become one of my favourite cities in Germany after Munich and Bamberg (what can I say, I have a thing for Bavaria!), Hannover and Bremen.
Have you ever been to Dresden? What did you enjy the most?
