The first mention of Darmstadt dates back to the end of the eleventh century. During the medieval period, it was a small settlement that belonged to the Hessian dynasty. Later, the Grand Dukes made Darmstadt their permanent residence. It was here that two young princesses were born, who later became the wives of the Russian emperors - Alexander II and Nicholas II.

The city grew and improved, its role in politics and economy became more and more important. In the thirties of the last century, the local population actively supported the Nazis, which negatively affected the reputation of Darmstadt. However, the careful restoration of architecture and the status of a major educational center changed the situation. Modern Darmstadt is a respectable German city where thousands of students study.
