About Wrocław

In its thousand-year history, at various times it has been part of the Kingdom of Poland, Bohemia, Hungary, the Austrian Empire, Prussia, and Germany. In 1945 as a result of the border changes after the war, it became part of Poland.

It is also known as a "city of bridges" because hundreds of them connect islands with land Wrocław is settled on.

You can admire lots of monuments in the Old Town such as a Cathedral built on an island (Ostrów Tumski), Main Market Square with the City Hall and UNESCO's Centennial Hall surrounded by ZOO and Multimedia Fountains.

In 2016, the city will be the European Capital of Culture.
