Eastern Saxony

The southeast corner of Germany, Eastern Saxony is a land of bucolic meadows and gentle hills that transform into low-lying mountains on the Czech border. Influenced by Slavic nations in the east and south, this is also the homeland of Germany's own Slavic minority, the Sorbs. Their cultural capital is Bautzen, home to the Sorbian museum and the venue of an annual Easter equestrian parade organised by the Sorbian community.
