Wroclaw, with over 630,000 inhabitants, is the fourth biggest city in Poland and the economic, administrative as well as cultural capital of Lower Silesia. It is undoubtedly one of the oldest and most beautiful cities in the country. Situated at the foot of the Sudety Moutains, upon the Odra River and cut through by its numerous tributaries and canals, it is an exceptional city of 12 islands and 117 bridges.
Wroclaw’s complex and dramatic history is embedded in the city walls. We are reminded of the early medieval times in Ostrow Tumski, where one of the most stunning sacral architecture buildings in Europe has been preserved. Wroclaw Town Hall, located in the very heart of the city – Market Square, is considered one of the most splendid Gothic buildings in central Europe. In Wroclaw one can also see the biggest baroque interior in Poland, which has remained until today - the Leopoldine Hall, located in the 17th century University building. One of the city’s biggest attractions include:
Panorama of the Battle of Raclawice which is the oldest and only extant example of panorama painting in Poland commemorating the 100th anniversary of the victorious Battle of Racławice, a famous episode of the Kościuszko Insurrection, a heroic but in the end fallen attempt to defend Polish independence. Worth visiting is also the Centennial Hall, an architecturally unique building constructed in the beginning of the 20th century by Max Berg and listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Wroclaw, multicultural and open to new ideas and challenges, fascinates and attracts. The city’s remarkable history and diversity combined with Polish hospitality guarantee that everyone visiting Wroclaw will certainly see and experience something interesting.
