One night in Wrocław

Old Town Square - Historic Centre of Wrocław

Wrocław - the city on the banks of the River Oder, is the historical capital of Lower Silesia. It is one of the oldest cities in Poland. At various times in history, it has been part of the Kingdom of Poland, Bohemia, Hungary, the Austrian Empire, Prussia and Germany. Today Wrocław is the fourth-largest city in Poland and it is the capital of Lower Silesian Voivodeship.

Old Town Square

Wroclaw looks like a city built on water. Located on the Oder River, the city is unique in that it has 12 islands and 112 bridges. Wroclaw's water node has complicated structure. It includes the 3 main riverbeds of Odra and a lot of channels which are located in the centre of town. It is the largest in Poland and one of Europe's largest system of waterways and hydraulic structures, located in the metropolitan area. That’s why Wrocław is also called the Venice of the North.

University Square

Wrocław is the city of dwarves. The streets, squares and backyards of Wrocław are inhabited by largely more than 300 dwarves. They are very friendly and they like being photographed (see: "There is no freedom without dwarves". The story of Wrocław’s dwarfs).

University Square

The very heart of the city attracts visitors with its Old Town Square, Odra river waterfront and Ostrów Tumski ("Cathedral Island" - the oldest part of the city of Wrocław). In Wroclaw, there are many interesting places to see (e.g. Old Town Square, Centennial Hall). Magnificent architecture, interesting museums, charming cafes are just a few reasons to visit this city.

Main Edifice of the University of Wrocław

Tourists and visitors can choose a lot of interesting events. They can immerse in culture and art for the whole day – from visiting galleries and museums, participating in concerts and spectacles to having fun during street-art events. In 2016, the city was the European Capital of Culture and the World Book Capital (read more: Wrocław - The Meeting Place).

University Square

Wrocław is in third place in the ranking of the most attractive cities to live in Poland. The city was also among the one hundred best places to live in the international ranking "Quality of Living", published by the consulting firm Mercer. 


University Square

Wrocław is one of the undisputed highlights of Poland and one of Eastern Europe’s top tourist destinations. Norman Davies, an outstanding researcher of European history, has hailed the city “a flower of Europe”.

  9. The reference to dwarves was enticing, then i saw the last photo with the dwarf. I wonder why they were installed in 300 sculptures. I saw an older post about it...am going there first.
