The Frauenkirche, a Baroque architectural treasure representing Dresden. This Protestant church was built in 1743 during the reign of Elector Frederick Augustus I of Saxony. It was in ruins after being bombed during World War II, but was finally rebuilt in 2005, restoring it to its former glory. Today, it is a symbol of the city that conveys the preciousness of peace, and is loved not only by Dresden citizens but also by tourists.
Dresden, the capital of Saxony, is located in eastern Germany near the border with the Czech Republic. The beauty of the old town, nestled in the open land along the Elbe River, is outstanding. The magnificent Baroque cityscape built in the 18th and 19th centuries was devastated during World War II, but years of restoration work have restored it to its original beauty, and many travelers come to enjoy the elegant atmosphere of the ancient city.
