Welcome to Wrocław
Though in some ways it’s a more manageable version of Kraków, with all the cultural attributes and entertainment offerings found in that popular destination, the capital of Lower Silesia has an appealing character all its own. Having absorbed Bohemian, Austrian and Prussian influences, the city has a unique architectural and cultural make-up, symbolised by its magnificent market square (Rynek).
But Wrocław is not just a pretty face – it's Poland’s fourth-largest city and the major industrial, commercial and educational centre for the region. At the same time it’s a lively cultural hub, with several theatres, major festivals, rampant nightlife and a population of more than 130,000 students.
