Elbe River in Dresden

Elbe River in Dresden

Dresden

Dresden, the Saxon capital is one of the most important tourist centers in Germany. Under the influence of Augustus the Strong, the city adorned itself with buildings of great beauty such as the Zwinger complex, the Court Church, as well as the Japanese Palace. Dresden, the capital of Saxony, which stretches on both banks of the Elbe, has been nicknamed "the Florence of the Elbe" because of its splendid landscapes and its Mediterranean-inspired architecture.

Founded on the site of a former Slavic fishing village, the city of Dresden is mentioned in documents dating back to 1206. Throughout its rich history, this city has known glorious and tragic moments. In the 18th century, Dresden was considered the political, cultural and economic capital of Europe. But, barely two centuries later, its name has become synonymous with destruction and apocalypse. From February 13 to 15, 1945, the night air attacks carried out by the Allies transformed this gigantic city into a veritable field of ruins. Several historic buildings, such as the Zwinger, the cathedral and the Semper opera are restored.
