Founded in 1206, the Saxon capital was divided in 1485. Embellished with Baroque splendour, Dresden was known as the 'German Florence' until it was flattened by Allied bombers at the end of World War II. Painstaking restorations of the city have again recreated this delightful capital of Saxony on the River Elbe. The Semper Opera House, rebuilt after the fire of 1869, saw the premieres of Wagner's 'Rienzi', 'The Flying Dutchman' and 'Tannhauser'. Eight operas by Richard Strauss were premiered here this century.
