Dresden, the capital of the Free State of Saxony is without doubt one of the great European centers of culture. The city developed into one of the most magnificent baroque centres of power under the court of Elector Augustus the Strong. In the 18th and 19th centuries, intellectuals made Dresden a center of German Romanticism. Dresden was devastated and the glorious Old Town destroyed by bombing raids during World War II. Thankfully many buildings have been restored to their former glory, and today one can admire  some of the cities landmark icons, the Frauenkirche, the Zwinger, the Semper Opera House and the Residenz.
