This beautiful city is one of the most attractive ones in Poland. It is due to its wide range of cultural events offered, but also to its unique appearance and numerous places worth to see. Wrocław was hosting several sport events, such as EuroBasket, UEFA Euro 2012, and it will host the 2014 FIVB Men’s Volleyball World Championship and the World Games in 2017. Furthermore, the city was chosen to be a European Capital of Culture 2016.
The “flower of Europe”, as Wrocław was called, introduces itself as “the meeting place”. It is a proper name for this city – it is famous for its large number of nightclubs and pubs. The places to meet in are situated on the marvellous Market Square, where the Salt Market, St. Elisabeth’s Church, late-Gothic Town Hall and splendid tenements are located together with pubs and cafés. Moreover,
Wrocław offers large number of other attractions, including strictly touristic monuments. The city is known as the biggest compression of historic places in Poland (and one of the biggest ones in Europe) – over eight thousand tenements, representing historical styles of 19th and 20th centuries alternate with gothic churches, baroque buildings of Wrocław University, and modernist buildings (for instance Wrocław Opera or Centennial Hall). Worth seeing are also Wrocław Zoo, Japanese Garden, numerous museums or Panorama Racławicka (presenting the painting Bitwa pod Racławicami).
One cannot forget about the cultural events, such as Wratislavia Cantans, Jazz nad Odrą or Good Beer Festival. All in all, Wrocław is a city that offers so much that it deserves its names – “the meeting place” and “the flower of Europe”.
