Dresden , the host town of EUSAR '06, will be celebrating its 800 th jubilee in 2006.
In 1206 the Margraves of Meissen ordered a castle to be built on a hill overlooking the Elbe to protect the busy river crossing near the Sorb village of Drezdany. Dresden is, at once, a dreamy baroque jewel, picturesquely set along the river Elbe, a foremost European city of the arts, as well as being the capital of the Free State of Saxony.
The ensemble of art, architecture and riverside gave Dresden the name " Florence of the North". Galleries und boutiques invite shopping, and street cafés relaxation. From Dresden you can easily reach all of Saxony's most beautiful tourist destinations, including the nearby vineyards. The inhabitants are known for their own special charm, and Saxon hospitality is proverbial.
Dresden has an old Technical University, specializing in the fields of biology, medicine and technology. Important industries are in the fields of computers (Infineon Technologies and AMD) and car manufacturing (Volkswagen). Also remember, the football World Cup is being held in Germany in 2006, starting on June 9 in Munich. One of the World Cup host cities is Leipzig, approximately 100 km from Dresden.
The International Congress Center Dresden is one of the most modern and most beautiful congress centers of Europe. It was opened in May 2004 and is situated directly on the bank of the river Elbe, in the heart of the historical city amongst all the popular sights and points of interest.
