Beautiful Saxony is my favorite east-German state. Only the language is very difficult IMO.

Wow. That is a thread! I mean, I always knew Saxony has its specific charm but this is outstanding!

And BTW. Why once they changed (or rather expanded maybe) the name of Cheimnitz into Cheimnitz-Karl-Marx-Stadt? I know it was the communist part, but I am curious about the circumstances.

Sorry but the people living in the federal state of Saxony have nothing to do with the old Germanic tribe of the Saxons. The old Saxons lived in Lower Saxony, Westphalia, some parts of the Netherlands and and in some parts of todays Saxony-Anhalt.

Your ancestors emerged as a melange from different Germanic tribes (mainly Thuringians) and west-slavonian tribes! The most toponyms of todays Saxony are of slavonic origin.

But I agree Saxony is one of the most beautiful federal states of the world!

Beautiful, thanks for showing Saxony, I've always heard of a Lower and an Upper Saxony, What's the difference? I admire those clean streets and the urban disposition. Most of German cities are well planned, thats quite unusual for those of us who live in caothic mega Cities. Congrats Dakir , great Job!

^ Saxony ain't a city but a state in the federal republic of Germany.
But it doesn't look like you'd even care.

I think I'm in love! Those photos of the Dresden skyline in the winter are amazing! If my German was better, I'd move there in a heartbeat!
