Welcome to Wroclaw!
Wroclaw Poland, the capital of Lower Silesia, is rapidly catching the attention of tourists and businessmen alike. Its perch upon the Odra river and the veritable maze of islands and bridges that make up the city have gained it the title of the "Venice of Poland". But the similarities between these two cities aren't limited to geography. Over a thousand years of history have left this Silesian jewel with a colourful culture and an atmosphere to match. Wroclaw is bursting at the seams with cosy cafes, excellent restaurants, and charming hotels.

There's never a bad time to visit Wroclaw, even in the cold grey winter. Parks may be the reserve of the foolhardy, and the canal-side walks too have lost their appeal, but the Market Square is just as resplendent and a veil of snow and illuminated Christmas tree are sure to get visitors in the festive spirit. And if you're worried that people will be hibernating throughout January and February think again... It takes more than sub-zero temperatures to separate the average Wroclawian from their favourite bar!
Dubbed 'the Meeting Place' of Poland, Wroclaw can certainly claim to be one of the nation's most forward looking cities. A thriving business and cultural hub, this small town hosts more than its fair share of international events - the big one on the horizon being Euro 2012. But you don't need a special occasion to pay Wroclaw a visit. Quite apart from its spectacular Market Square, towering churches and leafy parks, Wroclaw is full of charming surprises. Where else could you hope to find one of the world's few panoramic paintings, a Japanese Garden, and an army of gnomes...?
