Enjoy a visit to this newly reconstructed capital of Saxony, home to the Zwinger Gallery, otherwise known as the “German Louvre”.
Stretch your holiday across two countries and get a glimpse of the gorgeous scenery of České středohoří (Central Bohemian Highlands) with a trip to the German city of Dresden, just across the northern border. Originally a small fishing village, Dresden grew to become a spa town, a royal residence and finally, the capital city of Saxony. A simple day trip can show you the similarities and differences between these two neighboring countries. During World War II, Dresden suffered a massive air raid that almost destroyed it entirely; however, the city has been immaculately reconstructed and rebuilt.We'll walk around Dresden's most important historical monuments, including the Zwinger and Albertinum galleries, the Hofkirche and Frauenkirche churches and the Semperoper Opera House and then you´ll have a plenty of time to explore this beatiful city on your own.
