The Zwinger Palace is located in the city of Dresden, Germany. The construction took place in the year 1709 and was originally made of wood and served as the amphitheater for the knights contests on the handling of weapons or other entertainment for the Saxon royal court. Between 1710 and 1719, under the command of King August the Hard took place the reconstruction of the palace using the stone so like it looks nowdays. The desire was to outsmart the King's Palace of Versailles wich was a great and luxury Palace.

In 1945, at the end of the Second World War, the Zwinger Palace was seriously damaged, but it was built with the help of city residents. Inside the palace we can visit 4 rooms, each filled with works of art and the gallery of paintings, paintings of the artist Raphael, Rubens, Canaletto.
