Dresden was widely considered Germany's most beautiful cities before suffering terrible devastation at the hands of Allied bombing on February 13 and 14, 1945.

Yet Dresden, founded in 1206 and brought to prominence by August der Starke (Augustus the Strong), a Saxon King, has yet again risen from the rubble. Its most famous attraction, the Frauenkirche, was re-opened in 2005 after restoration and sports a UK donated gold cupola. Other main attractions the Zwinger palace and the Semper Opera house were rebuilt in 1964 and 1985, respectively, and today the Neustadt (New City) is filled with restaurants and a great bar scene, while the Alstadt (Old City, which suffered the most) has the historic attractions of restored architecture contrasting with a few blackened buildings, some of the only traces of WWII still left in Europe. ... read more
