This city is located in the federal state of Saxony, Germany. It has around 520,000 inhabitants and is the heart of the Central German Metropolitan Region. The city is situated about 150 km (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.
It has been a trade city since at least the time of the Holy Roman Empire, sitting at the intersection of the Via Regia and Via Imperii, two important Medieval trade routes. At one time, Leipzig was one of the major European centers of learning and culture in fields such as music and publishing.

After World War II, the city became a major urban center within the German Democratic Republic (East Germany) but its cultural and economic importance declined, despite East Germany being the richest economy in the Soviet Bloc.
