    This a is just an amazing wall. I think it is about a block covered in art of all the kings of the area. Such a spectacular history in this city.

    A wall that's almost a city block long covered in beautiful Meissen porcelain tiles depicting the history of the rulers of Dresden. It's a wonderful sight to see and best of all it's completely free. It's really worth stopping by and taking a few pictures.

    An amazing art piece, both in aesthetics and scale, covering the whole side of a building, depicting every individual Saxony royalties and rulers in great detail (of which Dresden is the capital city), names included. It would get 5 stars from me had I been more interested in Saxony history.

    This is a must see while in Dresden. It's amazing to me that it survived the fire bombing in 1945.

    One of the most unique and impressive historical attractions of Dresden. Made out of 23000 porcelain tiles to make the mural waterproof. Beautiful craftsmanship. Apparently this is the largest porcelain artwork in the world.
