I think, one of the most interesting facts about Wroclaw is that the city lays on water. The river Odra has plenty of canals, which means a lot of bridges, waterfronts etc.
Something, which is unusual in Poland and reminds a little bit the Netherlands, of course in other scale.
So please, post more pictures connected with water.

AGC - agrees. But in fact Wrocław has this problem that it doesn't manage the whole potential of Odra. The most representative area connected to Odra is located between the Grunwaldzki bridge and Pomorski Bridge, so about 1 km or so. It isn't enough. But maybe in the next decades something will change and get better. I hope so.

31) Chameleon - the next great modernistic building which You can find in this city. It was recently renovated and in my opinion the shape of this building is simply outstanding.


32) Closer look on Chameleon once again but during the night. This building seems to look incredibly light and the architect who designed it, streamlined it properly and now it shocks everybody with it's beauty

35) As I've written in my first post Wrocław is a city of diffrences. Here You have a great example. Beauty and the beast.


36) Mirror, mirror, tell me who is the most beautiful building in the world ? / Two university buildings. Old and modern.

I am suprised, by Your comments. I was thinking that showing pictures of a small city in Mid-Europa won't be so popular but that makes me smile and keeps motivation

So, let's continue our journey through this city maze.

37) Wrocław hasn't only beautiful views. If he had it, there will be a larger amount of tourists visiting and knowing something about this place. Here is the symbol of the communistic government after the Second World War. The New Market, which had before the war tanement houses just like our most important City Market. And now, You can see the level of architecture there. It is a big discussion what to do with this kind of architecture - destroy it and reconstruct everything what was there before or save it as a monument. What do you think ? Of course it is view of only one side of the square.


38) Awry look on a just renovated tanement house on City Market.

39) Kazimierza Wielkiego street, which is dividing our Old Town in two pieces. The biggest negative legacy from the communism. There is a big discussion and propably after Euro 2012 our local government is going to do something with this "freeway"


40) Once again Kazimierza Wielkiego street. We can see the City Museum of Wrocław, recently renovated with reconstructed insides. It's a place, You must visit during a visit in this city. It's really modern and prepared for tourists. Before the war this place was called : Spatgen Palace and it has been one of headquaters of the german monarchs.
Next to the Museum there is an evangelical church.

41) It's one of the best iluminated buildings in Wrocław. The Polish National Bank on Ofiar Oświęcimskich street.


42) The neighbour of PNB building is another modernistic pearl. It was made on base of Hans Poelzig's idea. So as You can see, here in Wrocław we have a lot of this kind of structures. And still I haven't shown You the only member of Unesco's list from Wrocław - Hala Stulecia, The Onehundretyears Hall

45) The garden between Osolineum and saint Mathew church. It's an oasis, especially in summer time, when there is a lot of flowers blooming. Great view !


46) Entrance to the Archbishop Palace on Ostrów Tumski.

49) One of the buildings from polytechnic institute.


50) The ilumination accentuates the details of this building. I must say that sometimes a good light-game allows to discover what is imperceptible during the daylight.

51) Our new purchuase - the fragment of Skoda tram of course The temple of saint Mary Magdalene was one of the most important churches in the history of Wrocław. But as You can see, the church isn't in a good shape and it's waiting for the renovation and reconstruction of the crownings.


52) On the other hand, we have saint Elisabeth church. It is the highest temple in our city and in last decades it was known of being a garrison church. Before the war, it's role was smaller the Mary's Magdalene but as You can see the history is unpredictible.


Both of these temples are very close to the city market.

53) Your mother didn't tell You after all ?! YOU SHOULDN'T PLAY WITH FIRE !! Especially at the city market


54) Another view from the city market. It's a pearl and it's very precious for us, the citizens of Wrocław. There is a lot of pubs, restaurants, caffee's in the neighbourhood and this place stays alive for 24 hours.

55) Another pic from the city market.


56) One of the most much-loved places for people who are looking for something uncommon. It's a pub, where You can feel once again just like in a communism times. The newspaper, characteristic tv shows, design and clothes. And specialties greatly known from "PRL" as the Poles call those days

57) We still have in Wrocław a lot of places, which need fillings after war. In the area of Old Town, especially in the eastern part it is essential. It was more experienced during the war, than the western part. But as You can see on the picture, we have some new architecture, which fills up the empty places. It' an example.


58) Malarska or in English Painters street - recently renovated and I must say it's controversial. The colors reminds of disneyland but i've heard that they were based on the real one's. The effect is quite specific but acceptable for me.

59) Let's go and visit the University square. The Uni is one of our brightest monuments and especially with preserved insides it is amazing. If You ever visit this place, You have the duty to visit the Leopoldin's auditorium. I don't have photos but I can only encourage You to see it with Your own eyes. / Recently a few tenement houses were renovated and the colors remind of southern Europe


60) Another pic showing fragment of Uni

61) Another interesting object on Univeristy square. The statue of naked swordsmen who lost everything during gambling and enjoying student's life There is a legend that if a virgin comes nearby the sculpture, there is a movement of something which belongs to him... I am taking of course about a sword


62) So remember : don't gamble and don't drink too much or You will lost almost everything and You will be reminded as a statue

63) The sculpture of Xavery Dunikowski the Polish sculptor. And in the background the cathedral of saint John the Baptist


64) The sculpture of the victims which were murdered during the II World War in the wastelands of eastern Europe. In the background the church on the Piasek island.
