Royal residential palace with a porcelain mural

Former residence of Saxon prince electorates and kings is a luxurious palace ensemble in the Dresden Altstadt. It is an intricate mixture of styles – palace reconstruction did last almost five centuries. However 18th century baroque is still in the lead. Besides the interior and exterior decoration of the castle, other place of interest here are the museums of the ensemble. “Green Arches” (Grunes Gewelbe) museum is a unique exhibition of jewelry of the Saxon royal family. The numismatic room is also interesting – it has the largest collection of coins, gathered by the numismatists of the House of Wettin.

One of the walls of the residential palace is decorated with a mural “Procession of Princes” (Fuerstenzug). It is the largest image created from Meissen porcelain tiles. Their total number reaches 25,000! It was collected from 1904 to 1907. It shows a cavalcade of 94 Wettin princes, who ruled Saxony for a millennium. Curiously, among almost hundred figures on the mural, only one is female.
