A unique place on the map of Wrocław’s Old Town, where, a few hundred meters from one another, you can find churches of four denominations, and multiculturalism and tolerance are not only postulates, but an everyday reality.
This small area, included in the list of monuments, is marked by the streets of Kazimierz Wielki, św. Antoni, Paweł Włodkowic and St. Mikołaja in the very center of Wrocław. A special cultural path within it connects the 18th-century late-baroque Evangelical church of Divine Providence, located in a row of tenement houses, and the 17th-century Roman Catholic church of st. Anthony of Padua, the Orthodox Church of the Nativity of the Most Holy Mother of God – the oldest of the churches, rebuilt from war damage at the turn of the 1950s and 1960s – and the White Stork synagogue erected in the first half of the 19th century, which returned to the Jewish community at the end of the previous century. The Four Denominations District is worth visiting not only for the monuments of sacred architecture – the unique atmosphere of the place is influenced by cafes and clubs scattered around the narrow streets, where cultural events are organized almost every day (concerts, meetings with authors, etc.), as well as the New Cinema Horyzonty – the only arthouse multiplex in Poland.

Historic center of Wrocław. It was in Ostrów Tumski, which was actually an island two hundred years ago, where there was a wooden castle from the 10th century, and later - a brick castle of the Piast dynasty. Until today, Ostrów is not only a tourist attraction, an exceptionally popular walking place, but also the seat of the Wrocław metropolitan curia.
With over 300 years of tradition, the University of Wrocław is the oldest university in Wrocław and one of the oldest in Central and Eastern Europe, and its main building, located right on the banks of the Oder, still delights with its richly decorated, baroque facade.
Located in the southern part of the historic Old Town, on one of the main streets in Wrocław, the Royal Palace is not only one of the most impressive buildings in the immediate vicinity of the Market Square, but also one of the most important monuments in the capital of Lower Silesia.
Located in a historic tenement house in the heart of Wrocław's Market Square - Pan Tadeusz Museum, operating within the framework of the National Institute of Ossoliński - can boast not only of having in its collections the most valuable Polish literary manuscript. Why is it worth visiting?
The world would be much sadder if there were no tasty dishes. Our ancestors who lived in the former Eastern Borderlands(Kresy) of the Republic of Poland knew about it, and maybe they even indulged each other in this respect. In any case, the cuisine of the Borderlands, and especially Lviv , was famous for its abundance of food and drinks. And how much of Lviv is there in today's Wrocław and Lower Silesia cuisine? How to use the borderland culinary heritage in Lower...
