Garden Kingdom of Dessau-Wörlitz - GERMANY - UNESCO #534
The second official card came from Germany and it shows another beautiful angle of the Garden Kingdom of Dessau-Wörlitz, classified by UNESCO as World Heritage and a place I really want to visit (specially to show it to my wife that loves gardens). Thank you very much Klaus, I really like your card... to bad you didn't wrote your message and instead printed a standart salutation and address. This postcard took 6 days to arrive!
The Garden Kingdom of Dessau-Wörlitz is an exceptional example of landscape design and planning of the Age of the Enlightenment, the 18th century. Its diverse components - outstanding buildings, landscaped parks and gardens in the English style, and subtly modified expanses of agricultural land - serve aesthetic, educational, and economic purposes in an exemplary manner.
