Dresden

4.6

Florence of the North

Dresden boasts a long history as a royal residence of many Saxon kings. It became a city in 1206 and quickly developed into the region's commercial, governmental, and cultural center. Dresden is perhaps best known for its historical attractions and landmarks in the old town center. Everything in this compact district is easily accessible by foot. The historical quarter was practically destroyed during World War II. The scars of war have long been removed, and the city is now a place of light-hearted and youthful energy. But the tragic events are still remembered in annual processions and ceremonies. Dresden has always been one of Europe's main cultural and educational centers, and nowadays it continues to grow into a major center of tourism. Many travelers use it as a convenient resting place and pleasant sightseeing destination halfway between Berlin and Prague.
