  • Ever since I can remember is restored there. But the exhibits are the highlight. This time we've looked at the old masters. You should check which definitely!

  • The Palace from the outside is beautiful. You can enter in the gardens and enjoy the architecture of the buildings: the enormous Crown as soon as you enter, right on top has a sculpture of Hercules holding the world and, up the stairs, enjoying the view of the city. Inside is a Museum, which is paid, with works of art until the sec VIII-including the Madonna of Raphael

  • Wonderful plant which it serves only the purpose of the Verlustieren. It is what renovated keeps and that is necessary. The almost black stone figures are hard to see.

  • Stojí za kouknutí
  • Great architecture. A must see sight when visiting Dresden. Close to most other major sights too and the garden is a great place to sit down and chill for a bit.
  • A great place. Beautifully maintained and many attractions nearby. Buy a day ticket for the museums there and you'd spend an entire day. Arrive early (around the museum opening hours) to visit them relaxed.
  • It is great place to learn WWII history. Whole city was destroyed during the war. German people built it again.
  • Beautifull, Schön, Piękne
