Church of Dresdren

Delighting Dresden

Dresden is the capital city of the German Federal Free State of Saxony. It is situated in a valley on the River Elbe. The Dresden capital is part of the Saxon Triangle metropolitan area.
Dresden has a long history as the capital and royal residence for the Electors and Kings of Saxony, who for centuries furnished the city with cultural and artistic splendor.

The "Church of Our Lady" is a Lutheran church in Dresden, Germany. This church survived the firebombing of Dresden during World War II but was totally burned out and collapsed the next day. It has been reconstructed as a landmark symbol of reconciliation between former warring enemies.

The reconstruction of its exterior was completed in 2004, its interior in 2005 and after 13 years of rebuilding, the church was re-consecrated on 30 October 2005 with festive services lasting through the Protestant observance of Reformation Day on 31 October.

The controversial bombing of Dresden in World War II by the United States Army Air Forces and the Royal Air Force, 40 years in the Soviet bloc state of the German Democratic Republic and contemporary city development has changed the face of the city broadly. Considerable restoration work has helped restore the city to its pre-war glory.

Since German reunification in 1990, Dresden has re-emerged as a cultural, political and economic centre in the eastern part of Germany.

World Time Clock in Berlin

The World Time Clock is one of the Alexanderplatz's (center point of Berlin) most well-known features. It was constructed in 1969 as part of the square's redevelopment and has become a popular meeting point.
Weighing 16 tonnes and 10 metres tall, it features a revolving cylinder with the world's 24 time zones bearing the names of major cities in each zone. I wish it has also time of Kathmandu, Nepal. :( The mechanism constructed in a way which enables the current time in each zone to be read.

The clock is topped by a simplified model of the solar system, which revolves once a minute.

At night.

The Fernsehturm (German for "television tower") is a television tower in the city centre of Berlin, Germany. This well-known landmark, close to Alexanderplatz, was constructed between 1965 and 1969 by the former German Democratic Republic (GDR). The GDR administration intended it as a symbol of Berlin, which it remains today, as it is easily visible throughout the central and some suburban districts of Berlin. (Source: Wiki)
