Here are some of the highlights of historic area of Dresden:
After my exploration of the historic area, I head in the opposite direction to the artist/student area. Dresden is full on many artist and students that have embraced the city. It was described to me as "colorful" in an unique way and I was impressed with the individuality of the part of town, funky shops, and awesome outdoor pubs/restaurants. I found a little hole in the wall pizza restaurant and had the best mushroom pizza I have had in a long time...I would even risk saying that the pizza was much better than the Italian pizza I had in Rome.
After dinner, I headed back to the hostel for some much needed rest. The next morning came quickly and I got up and headed back to the artist section I had been at the night before. I did a little clothes shopping in some of the funky stores and bought some cool clothes that I am excited to wear when I get back home to America.
Dresden is definitely a city that I want to go back to when I have some more time. I am a little bummed that I didn't have more time to spend in Dresden and that I hadn't gone there sooner. It is only a 2 hour train ride from Prague and I am happy I got to see it at least once.
