About

A city with a coat of arms composed of 5 different ones, reflecting 5 different historical periods. Over its history, the Wrocław has changed hands countless times: its founder was Czech, then it was conquered by the Poles. Later, it was taken back by the Czechs, who were then annexed to Austria. Then, Prussia took it from Austria, and then Prussia became Germany. And this is when World War II started… Sounds like a mess, right?


Because of all those processes and their location in the heart of Europe, British historian Norman Davies once described Wrocław as Europe’s microcosm. He said that everything happened on the old continent at some point happened here.


Walk with us through this charming city full of buildings that are silent witnesses to its long and complicated history. Wrocław is the key to understanding the complexity of Europe’s history. So, let us puzzle it all out together during the Old Town Wrocław FREE Walkative! TOUR.


On this 2h 30 minutes’ FREE Walkative! TOUR you will see:



  • Main Square with its historical buildings, among them late gothic Town Hall

  • Solny Square – auxiliary market of old Wroclaw
