The signature landmark of Dresden is the Frauenkirche, the Church of Our Lady. It is one of the most talked about German buildings in the recent past.
In World War II, air-raids wiped out Dresden, destroying many historic buildings and churches. Among them was the Frauenkirche, which collapsed into a 42 feet high pile of rubble; the ruins were left untouched for 40 years, a reminder of the destructive powers of war.
Dresden was on our way to Prague so we thought we would look at the old city, and the church they had to rebuild after the serious bombing during the war. We had a walk around, saw some great historic buildings and had a beer. It was a lovely city but me and Roy were both hot now, so we pushed on to Prague to find a hotel.

You could sense their excitement as we pulled up alongside our sister ship, Viking Beyla.
The evening would conclude with a lot of the crews from other ship rekindling old friendships.
The next morning was sure to feature king-sized hangovers for some of our dining room servers.
But we headed off to our cabin, so we could be bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, ready for a day in ...
... is considered the first castle used as a residence in the German speaking world.
We walked around some more, Torlaf asking me if I wanted to eat or try some Meißen wine. I didn't know if I wanted wine right before having to bike back to Dresden, but, after many times of asking, I said if he wanted to eat and drink wine, then I would also. A cheap restaurant was closed, and another place he looked at had a vegetarian option, but it was double what he was going ...
