Frauenkirche

The day after we’d arrived in Leipzig, where we stayed in a hotel, we visited the better-known city of Dresden, the capital of Sachsen (Saxony). We weren’t as lucky with the weather as Mariusz, when he visited the city a few days earlier, but at least in the morning there was still some sunshine. This is the most famous landmark of the city: the Dresdner Frauenkirche (Church of our Lady). The Baroque Lutheran church was built in the first half of the 18th century and has got one of the largest domes in Europe. The church was destroyed in the bombing of Dresden in the last months of World War II. The East-German authorities left the remaining ruins as a war memorial. The reconstruction of the church along with the surrounding Neumarkt square started in 1994 and was finished eleven years later.
