Dresden Day Tours - History of Dresden

Dresden was founded more than 800 hundred year ago and it was a seat of many Saxon kings and princes as it was a capital city of Saxony.

The most famous king of Saxony is Augustus the Strong from the family of Wettiner and many buildings of the city date back to the period of this family. The world famous art collections are testimony to their interest in art and extreme wealth.

During WWII, the historical centre of Dresden was almost completely destroyed by bombing in 1945. This is something still alive in the history of Dresden and is commemorated each year in ceremonies and processions. More than 30,000 people died as a result of the attack.

At present the historical centre is largely restored to its former beauty and since the reunification of Germany in 1990, Dresden has played an important part as one of the country´s cultural centers.

A Wonderful Day Trip from Prague to Dresden

 In August 2015, we took a day trip from Prague to Dresden. Kamil met us at our hotel at the pre-arranged time and, after about a 2-hour drive in a comfortable mini-van, we arrived in Dresden. As we walked around the Old Town, Kamil discussed the major sites (Zwinger, Semper Oper, Hofkirche, Royal Palace, etc.). Our last stop before lunch was the Frauenkirche, which we entered. After lunch, we continued our sightseeing on foot, and then my wife and I toured the Albertinum Musuem and then the 'Green Vault' on our own while Kamil attended to other business. We then met up at an agreed upon time and headed back to Prague. Kamil was an excellent, knowledgeable guide, who was friendly and engaging. The cost of the 10-hour trip was very reasonable, especially compared to other trips with private guides that we have taken in Italy and Denmark. We very much enjoyed our day together and would highly recommend him if you are looking to arrange a private tour in or out of Prague.
