Old Town Wroclaw Free Walking Tour
Overview of the tour in Wroclaw
Walk with us through the city full of buildings that are silent witnesses to its long and complicated history. Fourteen Nobel Prize winners; a founder of the German Social Democratic Party; and the Red Baron, the most famous pilot of the Great War all called the city home. But their German stories were sentenced to be forgotten during the communist period since the communist line was that eastern Poland had been liberated by Soviet annexation and Eastern Germany had been liberated when it was given to Poland. Sounds a bit complicated, doesn’t it? We hope it sounds intriguing as well. Keep in mind that we are still far from seeing the whole picture of Wrocław, so let’s make it even more complicated! The city’s founder was actually Czech, and then it was conquered by the Poles. Later, it was taken back by the Czechs, who were then annexed to Austria; and so Wrocław then became part of the Austrian Empire. The emperor favored the city and founded its university. Then, Prussia took Wrocław from Austria, and then that country became Germany. And this is when the Second World War started…
