From the Venice of the North to the polish Chicago



Everybody loves Wrocław, in the west of Poland, and we know exactly why. This beautiful city’s Bohemian, Austrian and Prussian influences create their own character. Wrocław sits on the Odra River and has 130 bridges, 12 islands and numerous riverside parks, and for these reasons it’s known as ‘the Venice of the North’.



Further east, back towards Kraków, is Katowice, which at first glance seems to be quite an unattractive place. But let’s not fall into easy stereotyping here. This city, in the Upper Silesia region’s Industrial District, has a lot to show for itself, including some of the most interesting modern architecture in the country. Historically speaking, you can also find yourself closer to the post-communist transformation process, here in ‘the Polish Chicago’.




So come with us and try to catch one of Wrocław’s legendary Dwarfs, participate in a medieval battle, quaff some superb locally-brewed beer and explore the deepest history of Upper Silesia. It’s an unforgettable experience.
