A beautiful city with a recently fully restored gothic Old City boasting a wealth of architectural styles from Bohemian to Austrian. Wroclaw is situated on the River Oder in south western Poland and is the capital of Lower Silesia.
Records show that Wroclaw began its existence in the tenth century as a market town called Wratislaw. Once a Slavic town, Wroclaw spent a long period of its life (beginning from the Middle Ages) as a fully Germanic town. World War Two turned this on its head when all German citizens ‘left’ the city after the war.
The city saw many horrors during this war. A greater proportion of the city’s ten thousand Jewish population were murdered by the Nazis during their horrific genocide campaign.
When in Market Square, there are a couple of points of interest to take in beginning with the stunning, unmistakable City Hall. Sporting a magnificent exterior and the Wroclaw coat of arms on the pavement outside, the City Hall offers art exhibitions that attempt to match up to its promising facade. Look out for the Side of the Golden Cups stacked with ambient restaurants and plenty of opportunities to sample the local refreshments.
Impressive Salt (Solny) Square with its newt-adorned fountain and needle statue is an excellent place to stumble upon, particularly if you are into atmospheres, interesting old buildings and flowers. Once upon a time this square would hold busy market stalls selling all kinds of produce from leather to salt today it is chiefly, a flower market. In those days it was more commonly known as Polish Square.
The elegant fountain entitled ‘Fight and Victory’ twinkles away in the city sunlight while enjoying a moment or two in Jana Pawla II Square. There is no better place to embark a tour of the old city than the spot that marks the beginning of the Old Town Promenade.
Why not enjoy an art exhibition in style at the Municipal Museum at one time the Frederician Royal Palace. Oh and by the way, in case you’re wandering the streets of the old city and you stumble across an incredibly impressive Gothic style piece of stunning architecture, this is the church of St Stanislaus, Dorothy and Wenceslas. One of Wroclaw’s chief attractions, you mustn’t walk past without enjoying its interior fashioned in the 18th century.
Great religious architecture comes in no short supply in Wroclaw. The medieval St Elizabeth’s basilica is magnificently Gothic on the inside with a 91 metre tower that offers brilliant views across Wroclaw. If you are fortunate enough to have the stamina, it is only a mere 365 stepped climb for the best sights across town (the rest of us will have to make do with our imaginations!)
The Cathedral of St Mary Magdalene, today a popular music venue, was built in the sixteenth century and although having sustained some recent war injuries you have to admire its resilience as it continues to offer majestic magnificence through the 21st century and beyond.
Continuing on a tour of the great religious buildings of Wroclaw’s city centre, a trip down to Cathedral Street will not only reward you with the Romanesque delights of the 14th century Cathedral but also serve you a generous helping of the Renaissance architecture of the Archbishop’s home, the Suffragan’s Palace and the Bishop’s Palace all within close proximity. Here you’ll find respite upon the bank of the River Odra within the beautiful and tranquil Bishop’s Gardens.
Yet another great Polish achievement is that of the Centenniary Hall or Hala Ludowa. Built in memory of freedom from the Napoleonic fighting, this great domed structure is a magnificent sight. Crafted in between the years 1911 and 1913, this stunning piece of architecture by Max Berg is today an UNESCO World Heritage site.
If you haven’t done it already, a fine way to say goodbye to Wroclaw is to enjoy the views atop the Mathematical Tower. The panoramic views here are incredible...who needs to fly?!
