Overview

At the beginning of the eighteenth century, Augustus II (known as "Augustus the Strong") had Dresden rebuilt into a complete work of Baroque art. Often referred to as "Florence on the Elbe," much of the city was destroyed during the Second World War. Since the reunification of Germany, the Dresden of the past has been gradually restored to its former glory. This book shows twenty-five sites in Dresden from three different historical perspectives, making it possible to see the city in times of both peace and destruction. This German–English edition includes both a map and a guided tour.
