This Dresden Day Trip from Prague will show you why it is known as “the Florence on the Elbe”, due to its great resemblance with the Italian city. Dresden is a Saxon capital which boasts many baroque monuments and a large cultural environment, worldwide-recognized art collections, and a renowned sculptural and musical tradition.
The meeting point for our journey is in the centre of Prague, and we will arrive in Dresden in less than two hours. Led by our Spanish speaking guide, we will start our stroll through the architectural complex composed by the Brühl’s Terrace, the Theatre Square, the Semperoper (is the most famous opera house in Germany) and the Royal Palace.
In the historic heart of the city, we will come across the Wall of Princes, a mural which depicts a procession of riders in a huge size. It boasts 24.000 Meissen porcelain tiles, what make it the largest porcelain mosaic in the world.
We will also come through the Zwinger Gardens, the Dresden Frauenkirche and the Catholic Cathedral as we explain you everything about the sad historical occurrences why Dresden is nowadays famous, such as the Second World War fights or the communist repression for nearly half a century.
Finally, we will recommend you where to eat and the most traditional shops at the end of our Dresden Day Trip from Prague. After an intense journey, we will go back to Prague and we will arrive at 19.00h.
