This city is Wroclaw, which is located in southwestern Poland and is called “city – gem, sacred flower of Europe”. It is the city that has been characterised as the European Capital of Culture for 2016, but also the UNESCO World Book Capital for the same year.
None of these characterisations are accidental, as it is a dreamy city.
The fourth largest city in Poland was once a part of Bohemia, Hungary, the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Prussia and Germany. It became Polish in 1945, after the end of the Second World War, and is now a wonderful city of a million people, 130 bridges and 12 islands – all of them on the River Ontra crossing it.
With the influences of Bohemia, Austria and Prussia, Wroclaw is the paradise of the architect – even Gothic architecture – but will not disappoint even those who are looking for a modern, interesting city with a lively night scene.
