postcards2_3Another card from David in Germany, this one shows a Dresden snow-scene. Although perhaps more famous for its more recent history and heavy bombings during WW2, Dresden has fantastically rich history from earlier periods with the area initially being settled around 7500BC by Neolithic tribes. By the late 12th century a Slavic settlement – Drez’dany – had been established. Although it likely looked nothing like today’s city, it is safe to say that this has remained one very popular area throughout history!
