The Frauenkirche, Dresden

Some photos of the Frauenkirche, Dresden, from my fellow Domer "Boots," a remarkable Lutheran church recently reconstructed after being destroyed in the firebombing of the city in 1945. While still essentially a gigantic preaching auditorium from a liturgical standpoint, it is nonetheless architecturally quite remarkable--both as a work of German Baroque and as a successful reconstruction. It still looks a little over-shiny and new (love that new church smell), but in a few decades it will have a nice patina of historic grime.
