MSM visits the cultural center of Germany
On a warm Saturday, August 10, students of the summer educational programs of the International Union of Youth had a trip to Dresden, which is close at hand from Prague – the whole journey by bus takes only a couple of hours. Despite the relatively close distance, you find yourself in a completely new environment: here is Zwinger, and many beautiful museums, exhibitions of famous paintings, such as the world-known “Sistine Madonna” by Raphael Santi or “The Chocolate Girl” created by Lyotard, fountains -just in walking distance from Theater Square. One of the most visited streets is surprisingly the Prague Street, where tourist usually do shopping.
Dresden is included in the tour program of students, in addition to visiting famous places in Prague, Vienna and Carlsbad. This is a great opportunity not only to see new places in Europe, but also to practice their knowledge of a foreign language, which the guys learn in Prague in classrooms. Throughout the trip, students were accompanied by a coordinator and a professional guide who reported the main information about the history of the city and its sights, as well as the latest news about Dresden – recently a new sight wheel was built here, and Palace Square was temporarily closed for restoration, which did not prevent students and other tourists enjoy the views of architectural buildings.
Interesting fact! The guide also said that the famous Elba Valley located nearby, which used to be under the UNESCO protection, was excluded from the UNESCO lists of objects because of the bridge build in the valley. Despite the warning about possible sanctions, the city government was inclined to solve the transport problem in this way.
For many people, it may seem that the city center looks like a messy mixture of historical and modern styles of architecture, but for a sophisticated look, the tremendous harmony of Dresden opens up, where each district is different and has its own special architecturally integrated features.
