What's on at the Wroclaw National Museum?
The grand National Museum in Wroclaw features three floors of art and artifacts with a variety of Silesian and Polish items on permanent display. The four main sections at the museum include Silesian art from the 12 to 16th century, Silesian art from the 16th to 19th century, Polish art from the 17th to 19th century, and a selection of contemporary Polish art. The museum was built at the end of the 19th century, while Wroclaw was still known as Breslau and in German territory. In 1947 the museum was established and is now also associated with the Ethnographic Museum and the Panorama of Raclawice.
The National Museum features temporary exhibitions throughout the year, from Poland and abroad. Scroll down for a regular update of what's on at the National Museum.

A variety of pendants, rings, clasps and coins, plus an impressive gold crown from the Sroda Treasure, will be on display at the National Museum in Wroclaw this winter. The most valuable item is a crown whose last likely owner was Blanche de Valois, the first wife of Charles IV, who died in 1348. The crown is skillfully decorated eagle symbols and precious stones such as garnet, aquamarine, emerald, and pearls. The collection was first discovered in 1988 in Sroda Slaska, a town 32km west of Wroclaw.

They that love beyond the world cannot be separated by it. Death cannot kill what never dies.- William PennBut I'm still overwhelmed by sadness at such a loss! Hector, I will always hear your laughter and your music in my heart. Most people are afraid to live, afraid to die. Hector was so very young but he lived his life a thousand times more than others who waste a hundred years to get to nothing and nowhere. He was one of the most beautiful, most noble souls I have had the immense good fortune to meet on this earth and I hope he's playing his violin and his baglama right now, in a better world Mia mera tha ksanavrethoume kalokagathe, gennaie Ektora cf83cf84cf89cebd ceb1ceb3ceb3ceadcebbcf89cebd cf84ceb1 cebccf80cebfcf85ceb6cebfcf8dcebaceb9ceb1 ce9aceaccf80cebfceb9cebfceb9 ceacceb3cebdcf89cf83cf84cebfceb9 cf84ceb9cf82 cebdcf8dcf87cf84ceb5cf82 cf87cf81cf8ccebdceb9ceb1 ceb9cf83cebfceb2ceafcf84ceb5cf82cf88ceadcebbcebdcebfcf85cebdceb5 cebaceaccf84ceb9 cf84cf81ceb1ceb3cebfcf8dceb4ceb9ceb1 ceb1ceb3ceb9ceb1cf83cebcceadcebdceb1 cf80ceb9ceb1cf83cf84cebfcf85 cf80ceb1cf81ceacceb4ceb5ceb9cf83cebfcf85 cf84ceb7cebd cf80cf8dcebbceb7 cf83ceb1cebd cf84cebfcf85cf82 ceb1cebbcf86ceb1cebcceafcf84ceb5cf82cf84ceb1 cf84cf81ceb1ceb3cebfcf8dceb4ceb9ceb1 cf84cebfcf85cf82 cebaceb1ceb9 cf84cebf cf87ceacceb4ceb9 cf84cebfcf85cf82cf84ceb1 cf84cf81ceb1ceb3cebfcf8dceb4ceb9ceb1 cf84cebfcf85cf82 cebcceb1cf82 cebbceb5cebd cebaceb1ceb9 cebacebbceb1ceb9cebd cf83ceb9ceb3ceaccea3cf84cf89cebd ceb1ceb3ceb3ceadcebbcf89cebd cf80ceaccebcceb5 cf80ceaccebcceb5 cf84ceb1 cebccf80cebfcf85ceb6cebfcf8dcebaceb9ceb1cf80cebfcf85 ceb5ceafcebdceb1ceb9 cf83ceb1cebd cf84ceb9cf82 cebcceadcf81ceb5cf82 cf84ceb9cf82 ceb2cf85ceb6ceb1cebdcf84ceb9cebdceadcf82cf80ceadcf84ceb1cebeceb5 cf84ceb1 cebcceb1cf8dcf81ceb1 cf84ceb1 ceb3cebdcf89cf83cf84ceac cf83cebfcf85 cebbcebfcf8dcf83ceb1cebaceb1ceb9 ceb2ceaccebbceb5 cf83cf84ceb7cebd cf88cf85cf87ceae cf83cebfcf85 ceb1cebdceb8cf81cf8ecf80ceb9cebdceb5cf82 cf86cf89cebdceadcf82
