Meißen is a town of approximately 30,000 about 25 km (16 mi) northwest of Dresden on both banks of the Elbe river in the Free State of Saxony, in eastern Germany. Meißen is the home of Meißen porcelain, the Albrechtsburg castle, the Gothic Meißen Cathedral and the Meißen Frauenkirche.

Hope you like my photos of this beautiful small town!

The Albrechtsburg. It was constructed solely as a residence, not as a military fortress, the first German castle built for such a purpose:

Thanks for your comments, mates! :)

@Nightsky: Heaven't you ever heard of "Meißen porcelain"?
I don't know if it's familiar in other countries but in Germany it is very famous because it is the first hard-paste porcelain produced in Europe.
