For many centuries the city of Dresden was the "Elb-Florenz", Florence on the Elbe River. Its name was synonymous with glory, beauty and opulent works of art. Much of Dresden's splendor was destroyed during the night-time bombing raids of World War II, and the city was sadly neglected during its time behind the Iron Curtain. But thanks to comprehensive reconstructions, especially after 1990, Dresden is undergoing a resurrection and is now one of the most popular places in Germany.
