Entitled – Dresden. The Parkstrasse. 

From a Photo by Stengel & Markert, Dresden.

Below the picture an inscription reads:

Dresden. – Four hours’ journey from Berlin.

Dresden is the capital of the kingdom of Saxony, and it lies on both banks of the Elbe; the population is about 246,000.

The beautiful environs of this town have tempted quite a number of English people to settle in it.

The Altstadt and Neustadt are connected by three stone bridges.

The old bridge is a quarter of a mile long and rests on 16 arches.

One-third of a mile below is the Marienbrucke, 250yds. long and resting on 12 arches; this latter bridge was finished in 1852, and was built for railway as well as ordinary traffic.

The Albertsbrucke connects the suburb of Pirna with the Neustadt; all the bridges command fine views of the town.

The Bruhl Terrance, laid out as a garden in 1738 by Count Bruhl, rises above the Elbe, and is half a mile long; this is a favourite promenade, and commands an excellent view of the river.

It is approaced from the Schloss-Platz by a broad flight of steps adorned with allegorical statues in sandstone.

The new Hof Theater in Dresden ranks among the finest in Europe; it was opened in 1878, and has an area of 5,550 square yards.

The entrance in the Exedra is particulary fine, and the theatre seats 2,000 persons.

The Museum forms the north-east wing of the Zwinger, a building erected in 1722, but left uncompleted for more than a century.

The Zwinger, as now seen, consists of seven pavilions, connected by a gallery of one story and inclosing an oblong court 384ft. long by 351ft. wide. 

The Picture Gallery occupies the first and second floors of the Museum, and it now ranks with the Louvre, Pitti, and Uffizi collections as one of the finest in the world.

The engravings alone number 400,000.

Outside the Pirna Gate is the Grosse Garten, a Royal park of 300 acres.

In a chateau in the middle of this park is established the Museum of Antiquities.
