DRESDEN Friday 6/16

Av EvaLena Hallgren - Lördag 17 juni 01:23

Neither one of us slept well and for me, it was because the heavy rain and thunder, why Mom couldn’t sleep I have no clue. This is what we woke up (sunny again)to and we hit the road early.

 


we didn’t drive very far this time either. We ended up on a very steep and narrow road, a sign said 18% and of course we met a truck in one of the narrow curves. I did hear a bad word out of Moms' mouth as she shifted to second and then first!! she did just fine and I say it’s good training………..


We drove to Dresden which is situated in a valley on the River Elbe, near the Chez Republic and there are only 92 miles to Prague!!! Oh, now I’m putting my paws down, stick to the plan or else…..


Dresden has a long history as the capital and royal residence for the Electors and Kings of Saxony, who for centuries furnished the city with cultural and artistic splendor. The city was known as the Jewel Box, because of its baroque and rococo city center. The controversial American and British bombing towards the end of the war killed approximately 25,000, many of whom were civilians, and destroyed the entire city center. After the war restoration work has helped to reconstruct parts of the historic inner city, including the Zwinger and the famous Semper.

           

Since the German reunification in 1990 Dresden is again a cultural, educational and political center of Germany and Europe. The Dresden University of Technology is one of the 10 largest universities in Germany. The economy of Dresden and its agglomeration is one of the most dynamic in Germany and ranks first in Saxony.It is dominated by high-tech branches, often called as “Silicon Saxony”. The city is also one of the most visited in Germany with 4,3 million overnight stays per year.The royal buildings are among the most impressive buildings in Europe. 

           

this looks like a guy I used to know..................

 

 

 

 

  Built in the 18th century, the church was destroyed during World War II. The remaining ruins were left for 50 years as a war memorial as a reminder of the destruction from World War 2 The newly built Frauenkirche has charred stones from the destroyed church adapted with new stones.The church was rebuilt from 1994 to 2005.

   


Dresden has so many museums and exhibits it was just too much to take it all in, so we sat down for lunch and Mom order an Australian burger. It looked very nice but it was a really strange crumbled up meat. As a matter of fact, it tasted more like beans so Mom asked if it was a vegetarian burger, but it wasn’t. The fries was very good though.

   


We biked next to the river Elbe for 10miles, and it was windy as &%&#………Mom had to work hard as I was sitting comfortably in the basket cheering her on,   

It'll be interesting to see how far we get tomorrow since Mom is changing her mind every second................she says it's because there's so much interesting stuff to see on the way.
