You can see the photos of destroyed Wrocław in the book - "Wrocław 1945. Destruction of a City"

The quote from the link above: "The photographic documentation shows results of war activities carried out from January to May 1945 when Wrocław, turned into a stronghold at that time, was attacked by the Red Army. Sixty eight percent of the city was destroyed. Photographs, taken just after the War's end, come from the collections of the Municipal Museum and Architectural Museum in Wrocław."

Medieval tenement houses "Jaś and Małgosia" is well known part of the Market Square. Between is the cartouche with sentence "Mors Ianua Vitae"...

wow, you're going to give Prague a run for its money some day. Looking better all the time. Wroclaw has such an architectural heritage which more cleaning and restoring will reveal.

How much of this city was actually destroyed in WWII? It looks like most buildings survived quite intact.
