DRESDEN, GERMANY

 I don't think the Fall weather could have been any more perfect today for my trip to Dresden, Germany.
Semper Opera was built in 1841.
Beauty can be found everywhere you turn in the historic town center. 
 Brühl's Terrace (Brühlsche Terrasse)
 Zwinger Palace is full of amazing late Baroque architecture.
This area is beautiful and displays the famous Madonna Sistina of Rafael in a gallery inside the courtyard. 
 The city is setting up for a big Christmas market.
 Christmas in Europe is a little bit magical.
I don't drink wine, but Europeans sip hot wine as they walk the charming markets in town squares.
Dresden Transport Museum (Verkehrsmuseum Dresden)
 Church of Our Lady (Frauenkirche)

The Procession of Princes (Fürstenzug) is the largest porcelain mural in the world.
 I followed some people inside a catholic church and found this sculpture. It is supposed to be mary and Jesus.
 The Stable Courtyard of Dresden Castle

 Dresden castle
 Elbe River banks flow past the old town skyline.
 Yenidze - a former cigarette factory building
Pfund’s Dairy (Pfund Molkerei) is listed in the Guinness Book of Records as the most beautiful milk shop in the world.
It is decorated from floor to ceiling with hand-painted porcelain tiles from the neo-Renaissance period and full of yummy cheese, ice cream, fresh buttermilk.
