Dresden is the state capital and after Leipzig, the second largest city in Saxony. There are about 475 000 residents in Dresden. The first documentary mention of Dresden was in the year 1206. Only 10 years later,  Dresden received municipal rights. In the course of its history, Dresden was not only a baronial residence, but grew to the status of a European capital. Especially during the period of baroque, many splendid constructions like the Church of Our Lady (Frauenkirche Dresden), the Zwinger or the castle park of the castle palace 013-pill were developed.

Dresden experienced its biggest catastrophe during the Second World War. No other city in Germany was as much destroyed by bombings like Dresden. More than 35 000 residents of Dresden became victims of the bombing attacks. The city center including its landmark, the Frauenkirche Dresden (Church of Our Lady), was completely destroyed. After the war, the reconstruction of the historical buildings was not of priority and therefore, for a long time, a rebuilding of the historical sites was not performed.
After the German Unification, the process of reconstruction and restauration was finally started and partly has not been completed until this day. Today, the city center of Dresden presents itself in its old historical style and almost looks like it did before the war.

People who want to get to know Dresden and its famous attractions can take part in a city guide or a sightseeing tour. Sightseeing tours are offered by the Municipal Transport Services of Dresden. For guests who prefer to explore Dresden on their own, the use of a city map is recommendable.
