From Wikipedia:

Saxony (German: Sachsen, Upper Sorbian: Sakska) is a landlocked federal state of Germany, bordering the federal states of Brandenburg, Saxony Anhalt, Thuringia, and Bavaria, as well as the countries of Poland (Lower Silesian and Lubusz Voivodeships) and the Czech Republic (Karlovy Vary, Liberec, and Ústí nad Labem Regions). Its capital is Dresden, and its largest city is Leipzig.

Saxony is the tenth largest of Germany's sixteen states, with an area of 18,413 square kilometres (7,109 sq mi), and the sixth most populous, with 4 million people.

The history of the state of Saxony spans more than a millennium. It has been a medieval duchy, an electorate of the Holy Roman Empire, a kingdom, and twice a republic.

The area of the modern state of Saxony should not be confused with Old Saxony, the area inhabited by Saxons. Old Saxony corresponds roughly to the modern German states of Lower Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt, and the Westphalian part of North Rhine-Westphalia.



Saxony is divided into 10 districts:

  1. Bautzen (BZ)

  2. Erzgebirgskreis (ERZ)

Other: Germany, Hamburg, Berlin, Bavaria, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Saarland, Hesse, North Rhine-Westphalia, Rhineland-Palatinate, Brandenburg, Baden-Württemberg, Thuringia, Saxony, Bremen, Lower Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt, Schleswig-Holstein
