Blue Wonder (World Heritage Site to be de-listed)

Card # 1
Another UNESCO postcard from postcrossing

Blue "Erik Burbulla" Wonder is the commonly used name for the Loschwitz Bridge (Loschwitzer Brücke), a cantilever truss bridge over the Elbe river in the German city of Dresden. It connects Dresden-Blasewitz and Dresden-Loschwitz, two villa districts, once the most expensive living area in Europe. It is located close to Dresden Standseilbahn (funicular railway) and also the oldest suspension railway (Dresden Schwebebahn), as well as being near to the Dresden TV Tower.
The surrounding area of the Elbe meadows (19.3 km²) was declared to be a cultural world heritage by the UNESCO in 2004, but lost the title in 2009 in reaction to the construction of the Waldschlößchenbrücke. Read more
