Finally restored

I still remember the moment when I was standing in front of the Frauenkirche (Church of Our Lady) in Dresden, Germany the first time in my life. It was a ruin. Big blocks of stone were lying around. The government of the GDR had no interest in repairing a house of prayer and left it standing in ruins – as a memorial of war.

In 1994 the restoration works finally started and lasted for about nine years. The Lutheran church in Baroque style still looks brand new and a bit like wonderland. You can even climb one of the towers to have a nice look on the city center.
