Dresden Frauenkirche Altarpiece

Altarpiece of the Dresden Frauenkirche | Germany

After the Frauenkirche was totally destroyed in the Second World War, the GDR regime decided to keep the ruins as a memorial. Finally, in 1994 Dresden begun to rebuild the church for more than 10 years. The interior of the Dresden Frauenkirche is very different from what I know of other churches. Much lighter, very friendly and kept in pastel colors. That results in a great contrast of the colors to the golden altarpiece and organ.
