"Welcome to PIRNA" Pirna by Leipzig

Pirna Travel Guide: 106 reviews and 417 photos

Pirna has about 40,000 inhabitants and is situated south of Dresden on the Elbe River. It was founded in 1233. Its name comes from the old czech word "berne" which means "Tax" or "Duty" due to its function as duane on the Elbe river. All ships coming or going to Bohemia had to stop here for paying taxes. This made Pirna a wealthy town.
