Short trip to Germany. Saxon Switzerland. Meissen.

Our family often makes over weekend a short trip. Usually it is something not far from Berlin. This weekend we visited beautiful Saxony. Our first stop was the city of Meissen.
 This city is famous for its porcelain. Several years ago I was on tour in the porcelain-factory.  But this time we decided to see the city. Unfortunately a lot of buildings are abandoned. 


But in general the architecture here is very beauty.
The city - centre in Meissen reminded me  my native city - Riga.

In the old city you will pass through the old cobbled narrow streets. 


At the top you will find a magnificent view and cozy cafes on the square of the cathedral.
