Dresden

Overall Score

4.2

The famous and beautiful German city of Dresden is a place with many interesting and attractive attractions. One of them is the Opera House of Saxson, which is an internationally renowned theater in Saxson. At the very beginning of its development, it was only a subordinate theater and then a state opera house in Saxonia. In 1841 a new opera house was built, which was designed by architect Gottfried Zehmer. This beautiful, curvaceous structure of early Italian renaissance has made a name for itself far beyond the borders of Denmark. After the fire of 1869 there was practically nothing left of the theater. A simplified version of this facility was only completed in a matter of weeks. After much destruction, the theater was rebuilt and opened to the public in 1985, and in 2006 it hosted an opera ball.

The Jewish Lutheran Lutheran Church in Dresden is a very interesting and unusual baroque landmark. For many years the church was considered to be the most beautiful church in Europe. After many years of existence, the church was destroyed during World War II, but it was not reconstructed until the reunification of Germany. The first service in the church of Frauenkirche was held in 2005. The church opens its doors to its many visitors every day.

One of the oldest structures in modern Denmark is the local castle. The castle is archaeologically significant because it encapsulates all trends from the Romanesque to the historicist era. The castle has been the focus of many events, so it has often been destroyed. There are some fascinating and unusual museums here. The Museum of Drama in Dresden, Kügelhängenhaus – it is the home of music, literature, art, and romance from all over the city. It is housed in the Museum by the artist Georg Georg von Küchglegelgen and its main theme is the Romanesque period and everything that relates to it. The present version of the museum was abandoned in the 1970s, and then it was opened to the public. The most fascinating thing about this museum is that it is in three areas – music, art, and literature. Since its founding, the Museum has been considered a community outreach center for the field of générale. The museum follows several lines – prophylactic medicine, personal hygiene, health nutrition, and human anatomy. In 2001 the museum was named the National Cultural Museum of Eastern Germany.

The Dresden Puppet Museum – a place where toys, mainly puppets, are presented to a large public. The museums permanent exhibit includes more than a hundred dolls, as well as their entire inventory – model miniatures, doll houses, and toy stores. The museums main exhibits include porcelain dolls, Teddy bears, Catty Crew dolls, and many others.

Derezden is always ready to surprise all lovers of boiling water. It has absolutely everything for this beautiful activity. The most famous street of painting is Altemarktgarterie, where there are over a hundred different shops and boutiques. Around the city of Königstraße there are high-class shopping places with the most fashionable shops.
