The historical Dresden

Hello to all users no matter whether you liked to look only pictures or my Elbflorenz by pictures and information would like to get to know, take you a little time and look everything.
I will start of course at the beginning with known from Dresden, but with the time you will get to know something what is not known thus, but one must have seen, nevertheless, sometimes. And give me some time that I can introduce bit by bit Dresden to you.

A lot of fun! And now I already apologise for my bad knowledge of English, I try my best one.

1. Church of Our Lady

The Dresden Church of Our Lady was built from 1726 to 1743. During the second world war she became severely damaged during the air raids on Dresden at night from 13. to the 14th February, 1945 by the fire storm raging in Dresden and collapsed in the morning 15th February burnt-out in herself. In the GDR her ruins were preserved and served as a memorial. After the turn the reconstruction concluded in 2005 which conveyor associations and donators helped to finance from all over the world began in 1994.

In 30. October, 2005 an inauguration service and firm act took place in the Church of Our Lady. Now from the memorial against the war a symbol of the reconciliation should become.

2. Procession of Princes

Procession of Princes (builds: 1589) in Dresden is a larger-than-life picture of a rider's train which was applied on about 25,000 Meißner porcelain tiles and when the biggest porcelain picture of the world counts. It shows the millennial history of the house of princes Wettin. In Augustusstrasse, so between Semperopera, court cathedral, castle and Georgentor on one side and the Church of Our Lady on the other side, this piece of art on the outside of the long way was appropriated in the north face of the stable court by the castle. Today it is one of the most-visited places of interest in Dresden. The Procession of Princes got over the air raids on Dresden at the end of the second world war in February, 1945 to a great extent regardless of. Only about 200 tiles had to be substituted. From 1979 to 1980 the picture was cleaned and restored.

3. Catholic Court Cathedral to Dresden

The Catholic court Cathedral to Dresden was established under elector Friedrich August II of Saxony by Gaetano Chiaveri from 1739 to 1755 in the style of the baroque and counts as one of the biggest church constructions of Saxony.
It was consecrated on the 29th June, 1751 by the apostolic Nuntius in Poland, archbishop Albert von Archinto, to the holiest Trinity (Sanctissimae Trinitatis). Besides, to the inauguration service were performed the fair in d minor and the Te Deum in D major key by Johann Adolph Hasse.
On the balustrade which surrounds the nave, 78 saint statues and in the tower are four allegorical figures faith, love, hope and justice of the Italian sculptor Lorenzo Mattielli.
During the air raids on Dresden from the 13th to the 15th February, 1945 the church was met several times by explosive bombs. The roof and the vaults in the interior collapsed; the outer walls were damaged, partially they were absent completely. The reconstruction lasted till 1965. The tracks of the destruction are recognizable till this day in the different stone colouring of the nave. The court Cathedral was raised in 1964 to the Kon cathedral (co-cathedral). By the move of the bishop of Bautzen to Dresden it is since 1980 a cathedral of the diocese Dresden-Meissen.

4. Royal Palace

Since the 7th September, 2004 the new green vault is opened in the first upper floor about the green vault by the Renaissance up to the baroque in the rooms of the castle. Here approximately 1000 objects of the court goldsmith Johann Melchior Dinglinger and are shown more different. The treasury (green vault) in the ground floor has come in 2006 with other 3000 objects in addition. On the 13th February, 1985 said Erich Honecker, the outside construction of the castle would be finished 1986–1990. Indeed, the west wing was not ready in 1989 yet, because the means flowed very meagerly and only very much few workers were occupied there. To the 800-annual celebration of the city of Dresden in 2006 the castle destroyed during the second world war should be restored in his external figure. On the 4th April, 2007 the Saxon Minister of Finance Horst Metz appeared contently with the progress by the reconstruction. The castle should be restored at the latest in 2013 completely. The costs for it are numbered at about 337 million euros. However, the interior arrangement will be visible only in some decades again.

5. The New Market

The new market in Dresden between old market and the Elbe is a known place of the Dresden city centre. He is limited by the Dresden Church of Our Lady, the Johanneum, the cultural palace and the health resort lands palace. By the active construction activity, released by the reconstruction of the Church of Our Lady, the today's place changes his figure consecutively. The reconstruction aims at a reconstruction of many historical buildings and building plans which marked the new market in the past.
A row of plots is called new market area or new market accommodations all around new market and Church of Our Lady or between cultural palace, castle and Albertinum which partially farms, are partially still incomplete.

6. Johanneum

Johanneum was built from 1586 to 1590 of the architects Paul Buchner and Hans Irmisch under elector Christian I. The draught for it probably comes from Giovanni Maria Nosseni. The building was grown to the side subtending to the Dresden residence castle of the stable court, so that in the stable building beside the health resort-princely horse stable and the Wagenremise also the health resort-princely armory and suit of armour chamber was accommodated.
Today the Johanneum accommodates the Dresden traffic museum. It served as a stable building originally the accommodation of the health resort-princely horses and carriages. The facade is decorated with Sgraffito paintings. The building is in the new market near the Church of Our Lady, in the immediate connection with the stable court.

7. Semper Opera House

After the destruction of the first Semper Opera in 1869 by a fire it was begun already in 1871 with the construction of the second royal court theatre. While the construction work might not return Gottfried Semper yet to Saxony. At the request of the Dresden population he sketched the construction, therefore, from a distance and transferred the management the construction work on his son Manfred 7 years after start of construction work the opera with the performance was initiated by weaver "Jubelouvertüre" and Goethe "Iphigenie on Tauris". The new opera was by far bigger than the burnt down old opera and had been further shifted to the back to win more space for the theatre square. The new opera was a construction of the Italian high-level Renaissance and fitted with it to the only Semperconstruction open shortly before in the Zwinger. Up to war-conditioned closing of the Semper Opera on 31.08.1944 51 premieres and 120 premières took place in this „second“ Semper Opera. On 13.02.1945 the city of Dresden was destroyed in bomb attacks. Also the Semper Opera was hard concerned by it. It exisitierten only the outside walls and some sculptures. Nevertheless, in contrast to many other historical buildings of Dresden the ruins did not get lost at the clearing work. Already in 1952 the outside facade of the Semper Opera was protected and with it a later construction was allowed.

Then in 1977 the foundation-stone was laid for new „Third“ Semper Opera. It was reconstructed widely faithfully. To do justice to the changed requirements for modern stages, however, one carried out smaller changes. Thus the number of the seats was reduced to 1,300 and the stage house was widened. For better view relations one renounced by the reconstruction also the division of the auditorium in single concluded boxes. On 13.02.1985 it was opened with the performance by weaver „Freischütz“ the third Semper Opera.

8. The Zwinger

Of Dresden the nicest baroque building is in the centre of the Old Town. It counts to the most significant constructions of the late baroque in Europe. The crown gate with the gilt bonnet has become one of the Dresden landmarks.
The name "Zwinger" is due to the original position between external and internal fortress wall. Today the arrangement presents itself with her wide inner courtyard, the different pavilions, the curve galleries and the gallery construction as a harmonious unity. Really the history of the origin of the kennel is marked by several sections. From 1710 and 1728 elector Friedrich August I (August the strong) instructed the first constructions. In particular master builders Daniel Pöppelmann and sculptor Balthasar Permoser stamped a unique baroque firm space with narrow connection of architecture and plastic. The at first open south side was closed in 1855 with a museum construction in the style of the Italian Renaissance, sketched by Gottfried Semper. Today after strong damages during the second world war and quick reconstruction the Zwinger accommodates precious collections, according to the world-famous picture gallery old person most, the armory, the porcelain collection, the zoology museum and the mathematical-physical drawing room.
With graceful water fountains and his dreamlike scenery the Zwinger court invites for staying. In summer he becomes the stage for Open Air arrangements.
