Often called “Florence on the Elbe” or the Jewel Box City, for its magnificent Baroque and Rococo architecture, Dresden has been beautifully reinstated after suffering major damage in World War II. The capital of the province of Saxony, Dresden has an artistic ambience, which gives it a dreamy quality. Known for its fine craftsmanship, particularly the Meissen porcelain, which is made here, Dresden China was once a tradition in many aristocratic homes.
Inspired by Versailles, the Zwinger Palace is a highlight. The Green Vault within the palace has an impressive art collection, and the city’s historical sites are worth exploring. Take a leisurely stroll through its thoroughfares, and experience a more personal side of Dresden.
