If you go downtown and walk along cozy Munzgasse Street, you will eventually find yourself in Frauenkirche at Noitmarkt Square. This round church made of sandstone was built during 6000 days in 1726-1743. The project of the church belongs to architect George Bar. In 1945, during just one night, the church was totally destroyed. When Germany united, it was decided to give Dresden its ancient look back. Therefore, the marvellous Frauenkirche was rebuilt. The reconstruction started in 1994, and the grand opening took place in 2005.
The New City.
After 1989 the area of the new part of the city between the Elba and Albertplatz has been turned into the most popular place in Dresden. The district is mostly covered with 4- or 5-storey buildings of the 18th century. The majority of them are placed along Keningstrasse. At a glance this street may seem quite dull, but if you look more attentively, you will find beautiful gangways and cozy courtyards with good cafes and restaurants. The district is also home to numerous boutiques, galleries, antique shops and even a theatre. If you want to do some shopping, Hauptstrasse will be your best choice. Tourists, who want to visit large department stores and shopping centres, are recommended to visit Alkmarkt and Pragestrasse, which are also located in the ancient part of the city.
