74. Dresden, Germany
Most of this city was flattened during World War II; so its pretty much had to be re-built. It’s pretty amazing to see it today. When you depart the airport, there are photographs of then and now of select images. It’s remarkable to see. This is also the city where a friend of mine and I took the wrong bus, got off in a neighborhood far away, tried to speak English to the locals who only spoke German, so we hailed a cab back to the city center.
Dresden is located eastern corner of Germany near the Czech Republic border and southeast of Leipzig.
