Dresden is the capital city and, after Leipzig, the second-largest city of the Free State of Saxony in Germany. It is situated in a valley on the River Elbe, near the border with the Czech Republic. 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 splendour, and was once by personal union the family seat of Polish monarchs. The city was known as the Jewel Box, because of its baroque and rococo city centre.

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. Since German reunification in 1990 Dresden is again a cultural, educational and political centre of Germany and Europe.

  1. I love that quote, and so agree with it. We live in such scary times right now with so many politicians talking about war. I can't believe 25,000 people died. That's terrible.

  2. Great quote.
    Amazing pic. Thanks a lot for the post. Thanks a lot for hosting :)

  3. A beautiful quote an such a beautiful place.

  4. Dresden is a wonderful city rebuilt after WW2 but I did not manage to go there yet.
    All the best

  5. I always think of Kurt Vonnegut. He'd been released from the PoW camp (Concentration camp?) and then a few hours later they were bombed...I think the bombing happened after the surrender but that may have just been Vonnegut thought the war was over because they'd been released. Anyway, I'd love to go there.

  6. Such a colourful and graceful city

  7. Thanks for hosting So beautiful, colorful and full of action .
