DRESDEN | Phoenix from the ashes



DRESDEN -
the Diva presents himself masterfully.



In bright sunshine golden jewelry sparkles on towers and cupolas.

At night they are mysteriously in the glow of gas lamps and the river Elbe:
the Brühlsche Terrasse with the Frauenkirche, the castle with Hofkirche and Theaterplatz.
Behind the Zwinger Palace with its breathtaking Crown Gate and the playful Nymphenbad.

Art is everywhere in the city.

Rest and relaxation, the Dresden found near the town of bizarre rock landscape of the Elbsandsteingebirge.

____________
@openlyJane: The Dresden Elbe Valley is lost because of the construction of Waldschlösschenbrücke its World Heritage title.

The Waldschlösschenbrücke is an under construction road bridge over the Elbe in Dresden. Already the end of the 20th Century planned Waldschlösschenbrücke is controversial. Following a referendum held the bridge became known throughout Germany. Because of them got the Elbe Valley on the Red List of World Heritage in Danger and lost the World Heritage title. The new bridge will relieve the adjacent, historic bridges from heavy traffic.

Very impressive.

Is there much architecture, such as above, which survived the war, or is it limited to a small area?

Unfortunately, sometimes limited.

Dresden was one of the most devastated cities in Germany.

In the GDR, some buildings were rebuilt. Since the reunification the historic old town is historically reconstructed. Many things are done, some historic streets are still missing. Coming from the old town, Dresden has many vacant lots. Partial reconstruction of important places are in the plan. There are neighborhoods that have the air war, miraculously, survived almost unscathed. For example, the Innere Neustadt, Blasewitz, Weißer Hirsch, and so on.

Certainly has every district some historic, but just around the center there are many East German apartment blocks. Since Dresden has a strong population growth, it is unfortunately not possible to demolish all apartment blocks this time.

I felt very sad during my short visit to Dresden
,when I heard the unfortunate story about Dresden`s bombing in WWII.That was shameful,especially by killing so many people,women and children due to political reasons between Brits and Americans on one and Russians on the other side.Anyway,I think they did great job by restoring all these old buildings.
My visit was in the winter and I am planning to visit it again in the spring because Dresden has large green areas.
L.E.,photos are beautiful.I have some as well but not even close as beautiful as yours.I know that the old,historic center had the World Heritage status but also lost it due to construction of the bridge across the Elbe which was not compatible with the site.Is that this bridge or if not can you please post for us the photo of the one,to compare.

I hope that I understood your question correctly. What many people think and what is wrong, unfortunately:

Not the historical old town of Dresden was World Heritage (even if it would be appropriate), but the green meadows along the Elbe.

You can find practically in any city of this size such large untouched nature in the middle of the river and the city center. The bridge that you have shown is the historical Augustubrücke, one of the four bridges over the Elbe. The new bridge, due the World Heritage has been lost, looks that way.

The problem with the Waldschlößchenbrücke is that it is crosses the Elbwiesen (lit. Elbe meadows) at there widest point. To deny the heritage status was the only correct reaction of the Unesco. To build this bridge that way while ignoring all alternatives, is, in my opinion, the biggest shame for this city since 1989.

I have never seen so much detail before in photos of Dresden.

The city is a vision - a dream.

L.E. Sorry,my mistake.I knew the green area alongside the Elbe was the WH site but I also thought the same about the city center.Firstly,it looks great but maybe too recent for being the part of the UNESCO list.I am not sure about the regulations.
