Dresden, the capital of saxony, is the city in eastern part of Germany which has a long history. Founded as a slavic city around before 1200 it is by European standards a young city. Hundred years later, Dresden was already a capital. Through the early history through modern age it grew, became prosperous, suffered from a great fire in 1685, a later one during the Seven Years' War. In early 20th century Dresden was a leading European centre of art and classical music. World War II came, Dresden was bombed out to 90% where lots of historical buildings like the Dresden Frauenkirche were damaged (remarkably it withstood all wars, also this one. It collapsed in 1945 because of the surrounding fire). The ruins remained during the time of GDR (1949-1990), after reunification with Western Germany the Frauenkirche was reconstructed. Today the city has a unique silhoutte of historical buildings with Frauenkirche, other churches, Semper Opera and the Dresden Zwinger. More info see Wikipedia and some pictures.
