We arrived at Dresden around midday on Sunday. The city was badly demolished during the allies bombing in the IIWW but now it's not so apparent, since a lot of monuments were rebuilt. We started our trip from die Frauenkirchie - the church that was renovated just a couple of years ago and is now the sign of distruction the war left.
Dresden has rather a small old city part, so when we came down from the tower, we just strolled around without a map. At the river side there was some kind of a race accompanied by a festivity. From what I noticed, 'festivity' in Germany is understood as drinking beer, eating Bratwurst and listening to German folc music. That's I guess what we call "local charm".
