1. Wroclaw: Guided Walking Tour of Fortress Wroclaw
Embark on a historic journey through Wroclaw, a city that compared to other Polish cities, has a completely different history, and symbolizes the fascinating but at the same time the tragic history of the 21st century in Europe. Meet your history guide at the market square in Wroclaw before heading in the direction of the beautiful Salt Square, where you could once find powerful anti-aircraft shelters. After a short walk, reach the Libicha Hill and be in awe of the immense concrete shelter, where the headquarter of Fortress Wroclaw was once located. Learn about the history of the enormous shelter located under the hill during the war. Next, continue the tour to the main train station close by. Take a closer look at the beautiful historic station where the Germans once built a system of concrete shelters. Take a tram from the main station and head towards Nowy Targ and Ostrów Tumski. Both areas suffered the biggest damage from the war. At the end of the tour, visit the Grunwald Bridge which was formerly also known as the Emperor's Bridge. When Wroclaw was under a siege, the square around the bridge served as an airport. Many houses in the area were demolished in order to build the airport. The bridge was severely damaged in the spring of 1945 but was rebuilt after the war ended.
