It’s an incredible feeling to see the Dresden Frauenkirche virtually glowing at night. The church that for such long time served as a reminder on the destruction of Dresden in the Second World War. The Frauenkirche was completely destroyed and the dark stones that you see in the wall were taken from its ruins. Even though I didn’t have much to do with Dresden until now, I must say it was very impressive to be at that place.

The Dresden Frauenkirche was part of the UNESCO World Heritage
The Dresden Frauenkirche and the whole Dresden Elbe Valley were part of the UNESCO World Heritage between 2004 and 2009. Unfortunately, the politicians from Dresden decided to build a new bridge that destroys the uniqueness and therefore Dresden was delisted from the World Heritage.
