Bautzen is a picturesque city in Saxony, in eastern Germany. Its population is 40,000. The city lies on the River Spree, on hilltops.
Bautzen is called the city of 2 languages, 17 towers and 1,000 years of history.
The first traces of settlements date back to the 5th century, and it was first mentioned in documents from 1002, hence the 1000 years of history.
The city was founded by the tribe of the Sorbs and still live here side by side Sorbs and Germans, there are two official languages and all the names of shops, streets and offices are written in two languages: German and Sorbian.
I did not count the towers, but several towers you can see in the pictures taken from the Peace Bridge on the River Spree.
I have found only four or five photos of Bautzen on TE.

Une jolie carte postale ensoleillée de la ville. Tu as bien fait de prendre de la hauteur pour nous la faire découvrir.
Amitiés et bonne journée.

but i mean that in a fun way!
looks almost like a miniature set of a town :)
love the lighting, love the tall spheres climbing tall into the skyline.
very attractive shot

questa è una città che non conoscevo e mi ha fatto molto piacere vedere la tua presentazione.
Bella panoramica con le antiche torri e il cielo scuro a fare da atmosfera.

A beautiful town, which I have the pleasure of getting to know thanks to your wonderful picture. The spires and towers vie for attention. The clarity of the scene is superb as we have a look at the town from your high POV

Good exposure and colors in this photo. I like the "Tilt-shift" effect you got, very well done, looks like a picture out of a magazine models of German train. Stunning sky with those clouds threatening a little ... Good composition. Thanks for sharing.

cześć Rysiek, Super zdjęcie z Budziszyna. Fantastyczna ostrość kolory, bahjeczne niebo. Ale najważniejsze, ze to coś nowego na TE. Byłam w Budziszynie, ale to bylo wieki temu. Język tam uzywany to łuzycki (zwany serbo-łuzyckim i chyba nie ma wiele współnego z serbskim). Jest to jedyny język w którego alfabecie jest nasze Ł.

this place looks amazing. An uninterrupted skyline is such a rarity nowadays. So much history and architectural heritage on display here and captured exquisitely.
Enjoy the weekend - B.

Awesome capture of those old architectures against the dark clouds. If not for the cars this could have been taken in the medieval period. Good lighting and sharp details with wonderful colors. Well done, tfs.

This looks like a scene out of a fairytale! Your POV was well chosen giving us a great overview of this great city with it's wonderful architecture. The lighting is outstanding yielding fine color and detail. Thanks for introducing me to a place that I have never heard of but will put on my must see list.

Good evening Ryszard,
Beautiful high point view over the town, with the 5 towers dominating its skyline.
Light was favorable, added good contrast between the green trees and red roof-yops to the grey clouds aloft.

Ce village est vraiment très spectaculaire et ta photo le met bien en valeur. Je regrette de ne pas être passé par là lors de ma visite de la région.

It's incredible that a charming town like this has been visited by so few. This is a superb photo with beautiful buildings and great light and colours. You found a very good POV where we can see five towers nicely spread out along the view. Maybe the clouds turned into rain later, but for the time being this was a perfect day for photography.
