Wrocław is one of the prettiest and liveliest cities in Poland. Multicultural, it has an important university, a vast array of restaurants and bars, designer shops, theatre and musical events. The Odra River and dozens of little canals that meander through its tree-lined streets with their tall, multi-coloured buildings set the scene. In fact, Wrocław is made up of no less than 12 islands, joined by over 100 bridges, and simply begs to be explored.
