On the third day of their visit, Queen Beatrix and the Crown Prince Couple were in Dresden, the capital of Saxony. Welcomed by the Prime Minister of Saxony, Stanislaw Tillich, the Dutch Royals started the day by visiting the Frauenkirche Cathedral. This Cathedral was rebuilt in 2005, after the destruction which occurred during the Second World War and is regarded as symbol of peace and reconciliation.
