construction-works all over town
All over the town of Pirna you will see restoration-works going on, and on one side this is great of course for future visitors BUT on the other side many of the lovely facades will be hidden behind scaffolds during your stay maybe...
be prepared for this and come back another time. The restorations of the interior of the church of St.Marien will be finished in 2005.

sometimes you need to swim
Just click on my picture and you will see the mark on the wall of this house, showing the waterline during the big flood of summer 2002.
This is really almost unbelievably high, about 2 meters above the street and about 4 meters above the ordinary water-level, that you might see in the background of my picture .
The flood in august 2002 was extremely high, but smaller floods might occur several times a year and it is always a good idea to think about, where to park your car after a heavy rainfall - just ask the local people, they have their own experiences.
