Zwinger

Zwinger is located in the city center, on the banks of the Elbe. Very beautiful architecture. But before visiting the palace and park complex, see the photo of the results of the bombing of the city. Then you will appreciate the work and efforts of those who carefully restored the historical center of Dresden for almost 40 years. And it was during the existence of the GDR!

Zwinger - bright monument of German baroque. This is a palace ensemble, which is located in Altstadt - the Old Town of Dresden. It consists of elegant elegant pavilions, which are combined by galleries. This also includes the building of the Dresden Art Gallery (or the Gallery of Old Masters), which was built in the Neo-Renaissance style.

Around the courtyard with fountains is a whole complex of grouped buildings. Here you can see direct one-story galleries that are replaced by arched contours of the gates and pavilions.

The southern border of Zwinger is represented by the Direct Galleries and the Crown Gates. They are crowned with a royal gilt copper crown.

The northern border is the building of the Art Gallery, annexed in the mid-19th century.

In the east and west, the composition seems to be mirrored. Rounded galleries create a horseshoe shape that rests on two small pavilions.

Zwinger was built about 20 years ago under Augustus II the Strong, King of Poland and Elector of Saxony. Zwinger's columns, as well as niches and ledges, indentations and other decorative forms create a beautiful picturesque relief.

If you have not had time to visit here, then be sure to come.
