It is worth seeing vol. 3

Wrocław is one of the most beautiful cities I have ever been to. I spent several weeks there and I can say that I know the city quite well. I will recommend you some places that I really enjoyed.

  1. City of Dwarfs is one of the names under which Wrocław can be found. One of the ideas for spending an interesting day in Wrocław can be a hike along the trail of Wrocław dwarves. To see them, you do not have to make much effort as there are almost 400 of them and they are located in different parts of the city. 
  1. The Market Square in Wrocław is one of the most beautiful old town squares in Poland, and one of the largest in Europe. Beautiful architecture, atmospheric tenement houses, many restaurants and places worth visiting make it the most popular attraction in Wrocław. The most valuable monument is the Old Town Hall, which is the largest and oldest town hall in Poland. If you’re curious to see the square from above, make sure to climb the tower of the Gothic Basilica of St Elizabeth, located behind the townhouses. 
  1. The Racławice Panorama is the largest existing painting in Poland. The monumental work, 15 metres high and 114 metres long, surprises with its size and the realism of the scenes depicted.  Jan Styka, Wojciech Kossak and other painters spent nine months in the years 1893-1894 creating a work that takes us back to 4 April 1794. We are transported to the battlefield of Racławice and watch the troops under the command of Tadeusz Kościuszko win over the Russians.
  1. The Centennial Hall (German: Jahrhunderthalle) is a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Poland. It is considered to be one of the most important works of 20th century world architecture. It is also one of the symbols of Wrocław, like the Eiffel Tower in Paris or the Colosseum in Rome. Next to it is a garden with fountains and a Japanese garden. 

Wrocław is a magical city and even just walking through the streets or by the river should give you plenty of entertainment.
