City break: Wroclaw - city of hundred bridges
1st day Wroclaw
Arrival in Wroclaw. Meeting at the airport with your guide, transfer to the city centre.
afternoon Guided city tour - Old Town.
You begin the tour with a short walk along the 13th century heart of the Old Town with one of the most beautiful 15th century Gothic Town Hall. The Market Square in Wroclaw is one of the largest squares of its kind in Europe. On the Market Square there are two 16th-century miniature tenement-houses called “Hansel and Gretel”, crouching in front of the 14th-century Church of St. Elisabeth. You can see Cathedral of St. John the Baptist there as well. It is an elegant double-spired Gothic building - standing like a sentinel at the end of ulica Katedralna. When its construction began in 1244, this was the first brick building in Poland.
Moreover, you will see is St. Mary Magdalene’s Church, close to the Wroclaw University with its viewing terrace, decorated with allegorical sculptures, and the splendid Baroque Aula Leopoldina. Right next door is the early 18th-century building now housing the Ossolineum Library.
