The people of Lusatia are proud of their more than 100 years of history as an industrial and energy region. The enormous growth of the region in the past century led people from different regions of Germany to Lusatia. They transformed the large energy district of the former GDR into a modern industrial region. Nowhere in Germany can one observe the harmony of industry and quality of life as in Lusatia today. People relax at lakes or amusement parks overlooking large industrial plants. They consciously live with their region, they are hard-working and believe in success. They have always made the change in recent decades, including industrial upheavals and reorientations. They are very open to new things in the industrial sense. This mentality makes Lusatia especially strong.
