The Old Town of Goerlitz is a real gem. The city was fortunate enough to escape the war's destruction, so you've got here that feeling of 'touching the authentic'. The concentration of historic sites is unique in such small space, amounting to over 3,500 objects. There are so many fine examples of great European architecture that you are not able to take them in at one visit. Strolling around the squares or along narrow streets you constantly come across another 'wonder' that you marvel at for a few moments before you see that the next building is equally amazing. It's just not possible to notice the details and embellishments if you keep walking. So take your time while visiting Goerlitz, it definitely deserves it.
