The streets of Wroclaw's old town are a colourful mosaic of architectural styles, with the magnificent market square as its crown jewel. A lively multicultural centre, the city is home to a thriving student community and acts as the cultural, gastronomical, and commercial hub of the region, hosting many musical and theatrical events, a wide array of restaurants and bars and eclectic shopping. Back in 2016, Wroclaw was named European Capital of Culture and World Book Capital.
