Dresden is the capital of Saxony, located 170 km south-east of Berlin. It has a long history as the capital and royal residence for the Electors and Kings of Saxony, who brought with them the cultural and artistic splendour that the city's silhouette is famous for. It was then called the "Florence of the North". The city was completely destroyed by the controversial Allied aerial bombing towards the end of World War II. The impact of the bombing and 40 years of urban development during the East German socialist era have considerably changed the face of the city. Today, Dresden's legendary sights have been carefully restored - the town belongs to Germany's most famous and beautiful destinations and is part of a growing economic area in the East of the country.
