Golden Horseman

The Statue of Augustus the Strong (Elector of Saxony and King of Poland) is located since 1736 at New Town market. The monument is covered with gold leaf and shows August the Strong in a Roman armor on his break to the Kingdom of Poland to the east. He and his son Frederick Augustus II gave rise to those baroque buildings and unique art collections, which earned the Elbe metropolis known as "Florence on the Elbe". The Golden Horseman is attainable from Palace Square over the Augustus Bridge.
