After Wittenberg we went on to Torgau.  We walked around the city, saw the church where Martin Luther's wife Katharina von Bora is buried, walked through the castle-Schloss Hartenfels  and on to the memorial of where the American and Russian troops met at the end of World War ll.  Walked back to the boat for dinner.   

 Street scenes of Torgau.

This building still has the look it had during the East German era.

 I think this is Russian.  I don't know if it is a sign or graffiti.
