Millions of tourists from all over the world want to see it — the baroque jewel on the Elbe river. In Dresden, the Baroque era unfolds in all its splendor. Whether Semper Opera, Frauenkirche church or Residenzschloss palace, one attraction follows another. 
Saxony's state capital experienced its heyday under the reign of August the Strong, who was not only Elector of Saxony but also King of Poland. The people of Dresden owe many of their sights first and foremost to him.

DW reporter Elisabeth Yorck von Wartenburg set off with her 360° camera to capture the baroque splendor of Dresden in a panoramic view.
