Wrocław is the historical capital of the Lower Silesia district, a city of 12 islands and 112 bridges. Wrocław is nicknamed “the city of bridges and greenery”. The city’s strategic location between branches of the slow-running River Odra was utilized in the Middle Ages, when Wrocław was turned into a fortress. Following Poland’s conversion to Christianity, it also became the seat of the bishopric and ecclesiastic centre. Located at the cross-roads of main trade routes, Wrocław was an important place of commerce and trade. The city mediaeval centre has passed the test of time admirably and for centuries has remained as the area that still attracts visitors. There is the Old Town with its 13th century Market Square, which is one of the biggest in Europe, romantically lit in the evening with street lamps. In the Market there is also a charming Town Hall, regarded as one of the most beautiful Gothic buildings in the Central Europe, decorated with amazing sculptures and statues.  The mediaeval district of the city called Ostrów Tumski expresses its beauty by fabulous sacral architecture.

During World War II it was partially transformed into a bomb proof bunker for Hitler. Nowadays it is both a tourist attraction and a venue for various events. Today you will also visit one of the oldest health spas in Lower Silesia – Szczawno Zdrój. The exceptional healing properties of its waters make the pump rooms well worth a visit, and the Zdrojowy and Szwedzki parks, the pride of this attractively located town, are becoming a prime destination for many tourists and locals on health treks and walks. After a moment of peace and quiet in Szczawno Zdrój, we would like to show you Świdnica before returning to Wroclaw.
Luckily, it did not suffer much destruction during World War II and today we can admire the Baroque facades of its Market Square, the Parish Church of Saints Stanislaus and Wenceslas and the unique Church of Peace (UNESCO World Heritage Site) considered by many to be the greatest timber framed church ever built. It was erected in 1650. Modifications made in the 19th century include a vestibule, baptistery and a number of chapels and porches along the sides of the building. The church’s interior is sumptuously furnished and features both large and small organs.
