Named after the Austrian Emperor Leopold who founded the university in 1702, the Aula Leopoldina is a beautiful Baroque Hall on the first floor of the main University building. The English information booklet remarks that "the visitor absorbs the beauty around him, sensing his individual existence as being a particle of the universe". Not sure we would go that far but for four and a half zloty it's worth a butcher's hook! You can also visit the 300 Years Exhibition and Mathemician's Tower in the same building.

This room is a must-see for anyone visiting Wroclaw. I have visited it many times. One of the tidbits of information about this room, as far as I can determine is this.
In "German times" this was Breslau University, which awarded Johannes Brahms an honorary degree. As his thank-you note, Brahms wrote the famous Academic Festival Overture.
So, for those who are musically inclined, when you stand in this magnificent room, you may stand where Brahms stood to receive his degree.
The room is overwhelming. You will never forget it.
