Wroclaw: Tour to Dresden

Dresden is the capital city of the German state of Saxony and one of the most visited cities in the whole country. It is located approximately 300 km west of Wroclaw and shares the same tough history. After the bombing in 1945, the inner city of Dresden was largely destroyed. Even if there are still many wounds from the bombing raids within the city, the meticulous reconstruction turned out to be a great success. Dresden regains its former splendor. Undoubtedly, it is one of the most impressive European cities, rich in art treasures, history and legends. In 2004 the United Nations cultural organization UNESCO declared the Dresden Elbe Valley to be a World Heritage Site. Feel invited! It will be a pleasure for us to show you this perfect mix of culture and beauty.
