Salt Square (Plac Solny), renowned for 24h traditional flower stalls. Swidnicka Street. For centuries this was the most important street in Wroclaw often used by merchants travelling along the Amber Road from southern Europe towards the Baltic Sea. This part of the Old Town boasts several distinguished public buildings, department stores, hotels, churches and statues.

Catedral Island: Ostrow Tumski or Cathedral Island is where the city of Wroclaw was born. To get there from the University walk across Sand Bridge to Sand Island and the Tumski Bridge.  This bridge has become the magnet for couples who leave padlocks chained to the ironwork in the hope that somehow it will keep them together forever. Whether it works or not we don’t know but the padlock sellers nearby seem to be happy with the arrangement.

The one-day tour includes visiting of the Church of Peace in Świdnica and Książ Castle with its unexceptionally rich history and intriguing architecture. The Church of Peace of the Holy Trinity is a structure included on the UNESCO List of World Heritage Sites as the largest wooden church in Europe. It was founded after the Thirty Years War under the privilege of the Austrian Emperor, after the intervention of the Swedish King.

Książ Castle, the third largest castle in Poland, is located on a majestic rock cliff by the side of the Pelcznica River. Beautifully surrounded by the forest within a nature reserve, at the height of 395m above sea level, the castle is often called ‘the Pearl of Lower Silesia’. The history of this castle is very interesting and connected with the colorful life of Daisy, Princess of Pless who was married to one of Imperial Germany’s wealthiest princes. That’s the journey through the life of a woman who was beautiful, intelligent, idealistic and creative in pursuing her humanitarian and political goals. She fought against many adversities for the betterment of life of the poor and the working class and for peace.
