Photographer's Note

Wrocław - city in western Poland and the largest city in the historical region of Silesia. It lies on the banks of the River Odra in the Silesian Lowlands of Central Europe, roughly 350 kilometres (220 mi) from the Baltic Sea to the north and 40 kilometres (25 mi) from the Sudety Mountains to the south. Fourth-largest city in Poland.

The history of the city dates back over a thousand years, and its extensive heritage combines almost all religions and cultures of Europe.
At various times, it has been part of the Kingdom of Poland, Kingdom of Bohemia, Kingdom of Hungary, Habsburg Monarchy, Prussia and Germany. Wrocław became part of Poland again in 1945, as a result of the border changes after the Second World War, which included a nearly complete exchange of population.

Wrocław is a university city with a student population of over 130,000, making it one of the most youthful cities in the country.

Wrocław possesses numerous historical landmarks such as the Main Market Square, Cathedral Island and the Centennial Hall, which became a UNESCO World Heritage Site.


This long exposure photo was taken from 39th floor of Sky Tower, the tallest building in the City.
