Take a tour of Dresden's Church of Our Lady in Germany – part of the World’s Greatest Attractions series by GeoBeats. The exquisite Dresden's Church of Our Lady is an Evangelical Church in the Germany. Built on the site of a Roman Catholic church, the original Baroque structure was erected in the 18th century. It is a true masterpiece with several unique and important elements adorning it, among which is the momentous Martin Luther statue. The church was near completely ravaged in the Second World War and remained dormant in ruins for about 40 years. Its dismantled grounds bore a symbolic connotation in history when thousands gathered here to support the 1980's peace movement prevalent in East Germany. 18th century construction techniques, original stones, and designs were referred to in order to re-produce the original structure which today graces the Dresden city.
