The city of Dresden
This more than 800-year-old city, once the residence of prince electors and kings, rose to cultural prominence back in the 17th century, laying the foundation for a splendid legacy that continues to draw throngs of visitors today. Since German reunification, Dresden has been the site of intensive renovation, construction and restoration work. More than 40,000 students study at the nine institutions of higher learning in this university city, situated in a region recognized as East Germany's research and development hotbed. Companies in such industries as microelectronics, nano- and biotechnology and aerospace profit from the nearby university and various research institutes. The resulting symbiosis has earned the state the nickname, "Silicon Saxony".
I used to find learning German really difficult and I tried lots of different things. But on the language course at the Goethe-Institut, I suddenly started making rapid progress.
