Organized as atrip around the city, this book uses double-page spreads to highlight the best of the new and old around Dresden?s various districts. Stunning aerial photographs show how Dresden?s unique situation among the hills and the Elbe River have informed its distinctive infrastructure and offer breathtaking views of Switzerland and the neighboring mountains.
