Guide

Trip Info

Dresden is a pearl among German cities and just 2 hours drive from Prague. Dresden was honoured by the title “Florence of the North” back in the day. Roughly 75% of the historical centre of the city was destroyed by Allied bombing in 1945. The city was slowly restoring ever since then up until now when it once again shines as a jewel on the river Elbe. However before reaching this shinning jewel we will be reminded of the dark past of Germany in Terezin. It is a former fortress from the 18th Century turned into a gathering camp where thousands and thousands of people died in inhuman conditions during the Second World War. Once we reach Dresden we will have lunch together and then I will give a walking tour of the city. After the tour you will have free time to spend at your leisure. In the late afternoon we will be heading back to Prague.
