Yes it was destroyed massively. But it was rebuilt and reconstructed massively as well...and they are still going on...

No, those landmarks you see are not fake, because all the old parts were integrated.

parcdesprinces: Calling reconstructions 'fake' is... A disgrace! I should outright ban you for this, beware!

@Tiaren: Don't worry, it was just a bad French "joke"....

This is surely not the place for a talk about Dresden (the good and the bad of its rebuilding...Blah blah blah), especially since my country married Germany, for the best and only the best of our continent's future !!!!!

(We even share a TV network...which is THE real and THE only one (imho) cultural channel !!!!!)

@ erbse: Be banned for that ????
I didn't know that the German people were so touchy !!!

i think banning needs no reason, i ban people in other forums on spec or actually in the course of an autumnal depression or at least just for the sake of fun , i vist em also personally sometimes, with my friends the "finger crusher mafia".

Beautiful, its such a shame we rebuilt Coventry as a then "city of the future" instead of trying to restore some of its historic character.

So maybe if we are so off-topic with all these historical pictures let me post something of Gdańsk, Poland:


Tower of Mariacka Basilica is true medieval skyscraper - 82m Maybe not as spectacular as cathedral in Ulm But it's still dominating.
