The Elbe River divides Dresden more or less in half. All the major cultural attractions, including art museums, the newly restored Frauenkirche, churches in the Altmarkt (Old Market) and Neumarkt (New Market) squares, the Zwinger Palace museums, and the Semper Opera House, are on the south side of the Elbe. Prager Strasse, a wide pedestrian street lined with shops, hotels, and restaurants, is the main thoroughfare. Dresden-Neustadt occupies the north side of the river. Pretty 19th-century houses reconstructed to hold shops, apartments, and restaurants line Hauptstrasse and Königstrasse, its main streets.
