Nazi Wrocław (Photos from 1945)

As many of you already know, Wrocław (also known by the German name 'Breslau') used to be under the control of the German Furher, Adolf Hitler (even though he was Austrian).

During the occupation, Poland wasn't even on the map! :(

This photo on the left shows Hitler in the main railway station "Dworzec Głowny".

As well as Dresden, Wrocław got severely bombed by the allies RAF (Royal Air Force - UK) and USAAF (U.S. Army Air Force), city centre was destroyed. Even the cathedral couldn't escape. Now the cathedral in "Ostrów Tumski" is rebuilt and reigning Wrocław's city centre view.

Nowadays Wrocław is known to be "Miasto spotkań" - which means: "The meeting place", a city for entertainment, lots of clubs, bars, shopping centres, boat ride, zoo, botanic garden, paintball and best of all: the sun shines most of the time.

Please don't take this as a sad post, but just as a cultural and historical overview of the best city in Poland.
