These are nice photos of Dresden. Thank you for posting them.

But why are you so critical of the reconstruction? I think they look good. What's wrong with reconstructing in a historic style? Who cares about how "authentic" it is? It looks good.

Thanks guys!

@Darryl
I critical of the fact they want to get rid of always anything DDR.
And also quite confuse like many that new faux old buildings may be taken for older ones in a few years. It's not an aesthetical issue but more a question of memory, heritage and identity for the generations that come visit or live in this city. Nothing is done to help recognised what's being reconstructed and that's an issue I think.

I don't agree with that. Whenever there are fragments of the long gone buildings they are integrated in the new structures and made visible.

Anyway, beautiful photos of my favorite german city.

I like the honesty in your pictures.
Dresden not only consists of the baroque (looking) facades in the old town.
And some of the rest is really worth to be presented.
