From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Leipzig  is the largest city in the federal state of Saxony, Germany. It has a population of 544,479 inhabitants  (1,001,220 residents in the larger urban zone).  L is located about 150 kilometers (93 miles) south of Berlin at the confluence of the White Elster, Pleisse, and Parthe rivers at the southerly end of the North German Plain.

L has been a trade city since at least the time of the Holy Roman Empire.  The city sits at the intersection of the Via Regia and Via Imperii, two important Medieval trade routes. L was once one of the major European centers of learning and culture in fields such as music and publishing.  L became a major urban center within the German Democratic Republic (East Germany) after World War II, but its cultural and economic importance declined  despite East Germany being the richest economy in the Soviet Bloc.

L later played a significant role in instigating the fall of communism in Eastern Europe, through events which took place in and around St. Nicholas Church. Since the reunification of Germany, L has undergone significant change with the restoration of some historical buildings, the demolition of others, and the development of a modern transport infrastructure.  L today is an economic center and the most livable city in Germany, according to the GfK marketing research institution.  Oper Leipzig is a prominent opera house, and L Zoological Garden is one of the most modern zoos in Europe and ranks first in Germany.  Leipzig is currently listed as Gamma World City  and is well known as Hero City.
