(0 votes)


   DRESDEN is the capital city of the GERMAN state of SAXONY, and with around 550,000 inhabitants, it is the state's second most populous city after LEIPZIG.
    DRESDEN is the second largest city on the River ELBE after HAMBURG.
   The name of the city as well as the names of most of its boroughs and rivers are of Slavic origin.
    DRESDEN has a long history as the capital and royal residence for the Electors and Kings of Saxony, who for centuries furnished the city with cultural and artistic splendor, and was once by personal union the family seat of Polish monarchs.
    The controversial American and British bombing of DRESDEN in World War II towards the end of the war killed approximately 25,000 people, many of whom were civilians, and destroyed the entire city centre.
    After the war restoration work has helped to reconstruct parts of the historic inner city, including the KATHOLISCHE HOFKIRCHE, the ZWINGER and the famous SEMPER OPER (i.s.)
