Throwback Thursday: Dresden Frauenkirche

FX, 22mm, f16, 6s, ISO 100

Once Dresden was the capital of the Saxon kingdom. The last king had to resign in fall 1918.

At the end of WWII huge parts of Dresden were destroyed by the allied air-force bombs, but after the war they were rebuild and reconstructed. The last reconstructed building was the Frauenkirche from 1994 – 2005. The reconstruction costed about 180 million Euro. Donators collected 115 million Euro, while the city government and the state government covered the remaining 65 million Euro.

Take care!
