The capital of Saxony has been dressed up so magnificently by the former electoral princes, that today's tourist can only visit just the most famous sights: The Zwinger, the Semper Opera, the Brühl Terraces, the Church of Our Lady or the Residence Palace, all baroque jewels from the time of the Saxon Elector Augustus the Strong and his son. The Golden Horseman, a statue in honor of Elector August, is set up in the baroque quarter of the new town, where the Goethe-Institut is located, as well. Tourists can visit 51 museums housed in castles, palaces, farmhouses, galleries, power stations and warehouses. The Old Masters gallery is a paradise for art lovers, here you can admire the world-famous "Sistine Madonna" by Raphael, but also many works by Rembrandt, Vermeer and Rubens. The New Masters Gallery attracts with works from Caspar David Friedrich to the Expressionists. The Green Vaults are the treasure room of the former Saxon Kings and Electors. The city's orchestras are among the world's best. The trailblazing work of Dresden's young writers, supported by associations, festivals such as "Literatur Jetzt!", and the Literaturbüro, make the city a leading center for contemporary literature.
