2015 marks the thousandth anniversary of the city of Leipzig. This means that Leipzig was founded in 1015 A.D. In comparison to my hometown Athens, it is a very young city, but all the same has a rich history and thanks to its publishing houses, its University, its famous composers and other personalities like Leibniz for example, Leipzig occupies a central spot in Europe.
2015 will be a glorious year for modern day Leipzig, especially during the 31st of May till the 7th of June, when celebrations will reach their peak. I am happy that I will be able to take part in them, as a spectator and fresh inhabitant of Leipzig.
