Dresden: Frauenkirche

(Church of our Lady)
1796 it was an architectural wonder: the biggest sandstone construction worldwide, with the biggest stone cupola north of the Alps. Six decades after its destruction by a fire storm in the second world war one of the most beautiful baroque churches in Europe has risen from its ruins thanks to the support and donations from all over the world. For the 800 years jubilee of Dresden the cathedral, otherwise known as the protestant equivalent of St. Peter's in Rome, shone in all its splendour after twelve years of reconstruction. From the new platform, almost 70 metres high, the visitor has a panoramic view over the roof tops of Dresden.
