Wroclaw vodič

Wroclaw gradski vodič

The capital of Lower Silesia does not leave any visitor unaffected and with its outstanding architectural highlights, historical monuments and buzzing nightlife it could become just as popular with foreign travellers as Krakow is nowadays. The city’s location on the Odra River, comprising 12 islands, 130 bridges and riverside parks, is extremely picturesque. Just 3 European cities have more bridges than Wroclaw and with so many islands and canals it is no wonder that Wroclaw is also called the Venice of Poland. Seen from a boat Wroclaw seems to float on the water. But Wroclaw resembles also very much a smaller version of Prague when you see the numerous Gothic spires dominating the skyline and the twisting cobbled streets which are a constant challenge to the elegant local girls wearing high heels. Everywhere you can feel the Bohemian, Austrian and Prussian influences that Wroclaw underwent throughout the centuries. Wrocław was seen as a magic city and often referred to as the holy flower of Europe. Claimed by many and ruled by the Polish, Czech, Austrians, Hungarians and German. Wallons, Jewish, Italians and Russians moved to Wroclaw and nations, religions and cultures mixed to one big melting pot.
Nakon što je u velikoj mjeri oštećen tijekom Drugog svjetskog rata i stagnira pod komunizmom, Wroclaw je odskočiti natrag na velika vrata, a sada je jedan od poljskih najuspješnijih i najbogatijih gradova. Njegov brzi razvoj je također stimulirana po svojoj lokaciji u blizini njemačke granice koji je napravio grad lako dostupni na njemački izletnicima i investitora. Zahvaljujući svom položaju Wroclaw oduvijek njemačke utjecaje. Wroclaw je osnovana prije nekoliko 1,000 godina Slaveni, ali kroz stoljeća njegova populacija je postala sve više germaniziran pa sve do kraja Drugog svjetskog rata Wroclaw je poznat kao njemački grad Breslau. S porazom nacističke Njemačke i pomicanja poljskih granica prema zapadu je grad pao natrag u poljskom teritoriju. Posljednje Nijemci su protjerani iz grada i Wroclaw je ponovno naseljena od strane Poljaka, među mnogima od njih iz Lwów, - sada Lviv u Ukrajini - i drugi istočni dijelovi zemlje nakon dolaska pod sovjetskom dominacijom. Unatoč njemačkih korijena, jedini njemački vjerojatno ćete čuti je danas iz izletnicima naručivanje svoju kavu. Ipak grad čuva nepogrešiv osjećaj njemačkog provincijskom gradu, osobito oko veličanstvenog središnjeg trga Rynek i ulicama Starog grada.
With brilliantly painted baroque and Renaissance houses that line the square on all sides and an eye-catching Gothic Town Hall the Rynek is Wroclaw’s biggest attraction. On warm summer evenings the square bursts out into life, when everyone sits down there for a glass of beer or a cup of coffee. Fans of Gothic architecture will start to drool when walking through the beautifully preserved ecclesiastical district.
Another attraction not to be missed is Cathedral Island (Ostrow Tumski), a magic and peaceful place full of religious monuments and picturesquely located near the river. Here one can have a good rest here sitting on a bench and overlooking the river and enjoying the view of the city. Cathedral Island is the oldest part of Wroclaw with traces of the earliest settlements of the Silesian tribe. Wroclaw is also famous for Panorama Raclawicka (The Raclawice Panorama), a colossal painting (120 metres x 15 metres) depicting the victory during the Kościuszko Uprising over the Russian Army at the battle of Raclawice on April 4th, 1794. Thanks to the paining techniques implemented, a viewer has an impression of being right in the middle of this historical event. Lovers of modernism should see the Hala Ludowa (The Centennial Hall). When this exhibition hall was opened in 1913 to host the World Exhibition of 1913, it was the largest concrete construction of the world and Hala Ludow is one of the thirteen historical monuments of Poland registered on the UNESCO World Heritage List. With its enormous central space and the dome (23 m high), the Centennial Hall is a landmark in the history of architecture.
Wroclaw je izvanredan zeleni grad i postoji nekoliko umjetnih zemljišta parkova vrijedi posjetiti. Ogrod Japonski (japanski vrt) osnovan je povodom Svjetske izložbe u 1913 i mirnom zelenom okruženju čine veliko mjesto za opuštanje i bijeg od napornog života u gradu. Ogrod Botaniczny (Botanički vrt Wroclaw), savršena rekreacija mjesto s tihim uličicama usred svoje bogate egzotičnom vegetacijom. U patuljaka u Wroclawu su kipovi podignute na Wroclaw ulicama kao počast Orange Alternativni pokret u 1982. U to vrijeme neki patuljci sa smiješnim šeširima i nasmijana lica su slikani kao grafita pokriva anti-komunističke parole.
