Despite the nearly complete destruction of the inner city at the end of WWII, Dresden's skyline – a fantastic assemblage of baroque, neo-baroque, and late renaissance towers – remains one of the most charming sights of Europe. Sometimes referred to as "The Florence of the North," Dresden became one of Europe's cultural capitals in large part due to the ambitions of King August the Strong during the early 1700s.
