Dresden is an interesting city. It was mostly bombed out and rebuilt after the war. Its a cool city to explore and see how germany once was. Most of the city was rebuilt in the soviet style so it is interesting to see the differences around every corner!
I took a day trip from Berlin to Dresden it only took a few hours. I arrived at the train station with a friend I met along the way. We walked endlessly through the over lapping streets. One of the coolest things to see is the Opera House which is an exact recreation of the original that was destroyed.
