Leipzig is a city at the confluence of several rivers. It is the capital and the largest city in Saxony, Germany .

History

The city was founded as a marketplace by Slavic settlers in 1015. It became the city in 1165. The city experienced the sad Cristal Night (Kristallnacht) under the rule of the Nazi - the synagogues were burned down and Jewish citizens were killed. Leipzig was damaged by allied bombing at the end of the Second World War. Leipzig was located in the Soviet zone so the post-war reconstruction was designed in the socialist style. Leipzig received great financial support from West Germany after the unification of Germany and it is greatly developing since then.

Modern City Combined with Historical Sights

Leipzig has changed into one of the most modern cities in the former East Germany . After the destruction of the city during the war, not many historic buildings survived. Among those that have remained without serious damage are the Church of St. Thomas, the New Town Hall and the Opera.
