Leipzig is known as the city of grand fairs. For more than 800 years since the time of Emperor Maximilian I, it has been preserving unbreakable trade traditions. In the XVII-XVIII centuries, the city was the cultural and economic center of the region, a place where the progressive technology of printing flourished at that time.
Leipzig is famous for its famous natives. The truly greatest musicians lived here: J.S. Bach, F. Mendelssohn, R. Wagner. I.V. Goethe studied at the local university. Numerous monuments and museum houses of these famous people remind of the great past of the city and its invaluable contribution to world culture.
Martin Luther, the founder of the Reformation, liked to visit local restaurants. In the XX century, it was from Leipzig that the unrest began, as a result of which the Berlin Wall fell and Germany became united again.
