Dresden is a city-district of Germany, political capital and second most populous city of Saxony behind Leipzig. It lies in the Dresden Basin, between the upper and middle parts of the Elbe and the plain of northern Germany. In 2018, it has more than 560000 inhabitants. In the classification of the area of the big German cities, Dresden occupies with 328,31 km2, the fourth place behind Berlin, Hamburg and Cologne.

Archaeological remains suggest an urban presence since the Stone Age. Dresden is mentioned only from 1206, and then becomes a princely and royal residence. In February 1945, during the Second World War, it was almost completely destroyed by Allied bombing.

Dresden is the political center of a Freistaat, which concentrates its cultural infrastructures. It has the status of an independent city, is the seat of the Dresden Regional Directorate and has many universities. Dresden forms the core of the agglomeration of the same name. Its location places it accordingly in communication node and economic center of Central Europe. The region is economically positioned as one of the most dynamic in Germany. It composes the metropolitan triangle of Saxony with the agglomerations of Chemnitz-Zwickau and Leipzig-Halle. The Dresden Elbe Valley was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2005 but later lost its title in 2009 due to the construction project of the Waldschlösschen Bridge. The bridge was finally inaugurated in August 2013. © Pictures of Emmanuel Buchot
