Dresden Castle

A very fresh photo, taken this afternoon in the German city of Dresden, the capital and second-largest (554,000 inhabitants) city of the state of Sachsen (Saxony) and located on the river Elbe. For many centuries, Dresden was the residence of the Prince-Electors (Kurfürsten) and Kings of Saxony, who lived in the building you see here on the right, the Dresdner Residenzschloss. It is known for its mix of architectural styles, including Baroque and Neo-renaissance. The castle was heavily damaged in the bombing of Dresden by Allied forces in 1945. The renovation is still ongoing, after it was mostly left as a ruin in the first decades after the war. The Katholische Hofkirche is seen on the left. It is a Catholic cathedral, completed in 1751.
