Wroclaw Maps and Orientation

(Wroclaw, Silesia, Poland)

Sited on the south-western side of Poland and within the historic Lower Silesia region, Wroclaw is the country's fourth-biggest city, with a population soon to reach 700,000 people. Wroclaw is the regional capital of Lower Silesia and is based around the Oder River.

Wroclaw comprises five main districts, which include the industrial and commercial borough of Fabryczna, along with Krzyki and also Psie Pole, the latter of which is an extremely green suburb of the city, with good transport links to Warsaw. Psie Pole is a particularly historic location in Wroclaw, where a battle between Germany and Poland took place at the beginning of the 12th century.

Maps and Orientation of the City

For tourists visiting Wroclaw, the districts of most interest are the city centre itself (Sródmiescie), and the oval-shaped Old Town area, known locally in Polish as the Stare Miasto and surrounded by a ring road. The majority of all the main sights in Wroclaw are within a stroll of these central boroughs.

For maps of the city, head to the Old Market Square (Rynek), where both the Wroclaw Tourist Office and the Cultural Information Centre (Osrodek Kultury i Sztuki) reside.
