The capital of Saxony is internationally known for its in large part reconstructed Old Town displaying architecture from different epochs, with the Frauenkirche at Neumarkt, the Semperoper and the Hofkirche as well as the Castle and the Zwinger. Dresden has been historically known as “Florence on the Elbe”, originally mainly because of its art collections, although its architecture exhibiting baroque and Mediterranean influences and its location in the Elbe valley have also contributed to this (Wikipedia).
