Dresden — The Phoenix


I had a special experience on Saturday, September 21. 8 hours visit to Dresden, around 30 k steps and visit as much as I could:

Dresden has been ruined during world war, especially with many many bombs dropped on this beautiful city, lots of fire and burnings. And then it was reconstructed again. This is why I read in an article that it can be called Phoenix.

I never thought that sharing my feelings will be this hard with my second language. But, as promised, I want to share this post sooner. It’s better than later. And yes, I am not satisfied with it.

Just want to say: Visit Dresden, your heart will feel everything. Specially in Zwinger Palace and Simultankirche Sankt Martin.

Long story short …

Vapiano — Schössergasse 14, 01067 Dresden

It was the best experience with a restaurant I had so far, you can order directly to the chef, he / she will cook it in front of you, you can ask for flavors or also ask them not to use special ingredients you may not like or have allergy. And, it was so delicious.

Rest and Caffee or Tea

Starbucks — Altmarkt 7, 01067 Dresden

I ordered the biggest tea size [:D] Don’t do that, it was huge!
