Still relatively undiscovered in comparison with Krakow. Take the slow train from Warsaw and arrive several hours later having passed through gentle central polish landscapes.
The city itself has an exhilarating buzz and is great for simply walking around the Rynek (central square) or along the river Odra.
So many historic buildings remind you of the citys traumatic past, but one stand out attraction is the Panorama of the Battle of Raclawice depicting the victorious peoples militia overcoming Russian invaders, before the third partition of Poland.
