Wrocław, the capital city of Lower Silesia, is one of the largest and oldest cities in Poland. A magnificent market square and boulevards along the Odra River encourage day- and night-time walks while marveling at the stunning illumination of bridges and numerous monuments located by the riverside.
When in Wrocław, tourists should visit: The medieval cathedral with its golden towers and a viewing balcony as well as the two-storey Saint Cross Church in Ostrów Tumski, the Main Market Square in Wrocław with a historical late gothic City Hall in the centre, along with the famous Piwnica Świdnicka (Świdnicka Basement) restaurants and a local brewery.
On the Market Square tourists may admire excellently renovated mannerist tenement houses with numerous cafés and restaurants, as well as the adjoining University of Wrocław buildings including the Leopoldine Hall, which is called "the pearl of the Silesian baroque" and the Mathematical Tower with a splendid view over the city.
Wrocław is also recognised as the city of dwarfs. These Tiny figurines are situated in various places throughout the city.
Wrocław's cultural attractions are comparable to those of other European metropolises - the city hosts more than 70 various festivals and has a rich repertoire of theatrical plays, opera performances and concerts. The city is also proud of its numerous art galleries and museums, including the unique Racławice Panorama (Panorama Racławicka). Wrocław earned the honor of becoming the European Capital of Culture 2016. One of the greatest tourist attractions is undoubtedly the CENTENNIAL Hall, which is placed on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
