Wroclaw

wroclawThis great city combines Austrian Hapsburg charm, Prussian pride, Polish playfulness and Bohemian rhapsody. As such, it has a unique architectural and cultural make-up. Its location on the Odra River, with its 12 islands, 130 bridges and riverside parks, is idyllic. It easily competes with Vienna, Krakow and Prague in terms of its beautiful postcard panoramas and cultural offerings. There is a beautifully preserved ecclesiastical district on Ostrow Tumski Island in the centre. It a treat for lovers of Gothic architecture. Historically speaking, this is a religious centre of the city. The first castle of Wroclaw was erected here in the 9th century.

Over a thousand years of history have left the city with a colourful culture and a great atmosphere. Wroclaw’s calendar is full of festivals and events. The city has a large student population and a great night-life. The city is bursting with cosy cafes, excellent restaurants and charming hotels. There are also plenty of places to shop and enjoy yourself. There are many great places to visit including the Japanese gardens. This amazing botanical garden is one of the most unique natural attractions in Poland. The structures within the garden combine Japanese tradition with the precision of Polish artists. This garden is an ideal place for a romantic walk, date or to make a marriage proposal! Other sights in the city include the Panorama Raclawicka. This is a monumental cycloramic painting depicting the Battle of Racławice, during the Kościuszko Uprising. It is one of the few places in the world where you can admire the relic of the nineteenth-century mass culture.
