I've been to Wroclaw a few times and the impression I got was that much more of pre-war Wroclaw survived or was rebuilt than Warsaw. Warsaw is magnificent but there are many gaps even in the older parts. Wroclaw old town and some outlying areas seem to have more integrity - so is it safe to safe that about 65% of pre-war Wroclaw exists or was rebuilt (slightly altered architecturally in some cases)?
