On one side this region used to be a rich one. The most famous elector of Saxony and king of Poland Augustus II the strong gathers the biggest part of Dresden Art Collection and also scientists to create gold. Instead of that they discovered the white gold and called it porcelain.
In February 1945 Dresden was bombed and almost nothing left in this city. I will show you a few buildings and parts which persevered. You will never be the same after you see the city and imagine how it looked like after the war.
Dresden is a city of legends and mystery. And of course city of mistresses! Together we will drink the eyes of Countess of Cosel, the most famous one!
We will start our tour by picking you up in your hotel in Prague and transport from Prague to Dresden which will last about 2 hours. Then 2 hours walk in the city center of Dresden. Local lunch in my favorite restaurant Sophienkeller im Taschenbergpalais for one hour is waiting for us. You will also have 1 hour for museum visiting (either Green Vault treasury or Old Masters Gallery). Shopping is also an option. Half on hour coffee break if needed will be just after it. We will be back to Prague by dinner.
Please take your passports and travel insurance with you!
