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.
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.
