Specialized Economies and Beach Resorts in Dresden

As a cultural center of Germany and long-time seat of the royal family, Dresden was known as the "Jewel Box", and new arrivals will find multiple castles and stunning palaces to explore. The Saxon State Opera and Dresden State Theater stage a number of shows to keep culture lovers happy, and zoos in the city provide family days out.
