International Workers’ day in Dresden

While I was studying in Regensburg (Germany), I spent a lot of time with other students who were also grantees of the Konrad Adenauer Stiftung (KAS) like me. Thank to KAS I attended many seminars across the whole Germany and took part in many activities that my grantee-group organized in Regensburg. It was in April 2009 when we decided to travel to Dresden in order to celebrate the International Workers’ day there.


I didn’t know what to expect from Dresden. Each of the girls prepared something about significant sights in Dresden which is why we did not hire a professional guide. The weather was nice and Dresden took my heart in no time.


We spent the most time in the ample city center, which is really pretty and has many cute little side streets.


I also enjoyed in many architectural details.


The most significant building in the very middle of the center is the Church of Our Lady (Frauenkirche).


One part of Dresden which I liked most was the Brühl’s Terrace. There were many tourists there and I enjoyed the view to the Elbe river below it.


We took a ride with a steamboat which was the highlight of our trip. It was in dawn, a chilly breeze made us feel cold. We drank hot spiced wine in order to warm us up. An orchestra played Jazz and the life was good.
