The Tour of the Old Town
The Wroclaw Market Square covers almost 3.8 hectare and is one the largest market squares in Poland. The late Gothic City Hall with its 66-metre tower is the biggest building of this type in the country. In its cellar, there is Piwnica Świdnicka, one of the oldest restaurants in Europe.
The Market Square is surrounded by townhouses funded by Wroclaw patricians. In a style distinct from the other buildings on the Market Square, there is an original building – a modernistic tower block designed by Heinrich Rump and constructed in 1930.
The pillory, the fountain and Fredro’s monument are the most popular landmarks of the Market Suare and meeting points for Wroclaw inhabitants and their guests. People also like Jaśand Małgosia (like in Hansel and Gretel) – two salvaged houses of altarists (alter attendants at the nearby St. Elizabeth’s Church) in the northwestern corner of the Market Square.
The Old Town may be the heart of Wrocław, but its soul is in “Cathedral Island”(OstrówTumski). This ‘Cathedral Island’ overlooks the conference site and is within easy walking distance northeast of the market square. It was the first part of Wrocław to be settled by Slavic tribes in the 9th century. Since a bishopric was built there in 1000AD, it has remained an important place of royal and religious significance, and home to the city’s most important Cathedral.

The Tour of the Four Denominations District
The Four Temples District is a place of meetings, dialogue and mutual respect .The Four Temples District (DzielnicaCzterechŚwiątyń) is situated in the center of Wroclaw, in direct proximity to the Market Square. It occupies an area separated with four streets: KazimierzaWielkiego, Św. Mikołaja, Pawła Włodkowica and Św. Antoniego. Its unique character is determined by the magnificent monuments of sacral architecture.
Within a distance of only 300 metres, there are: Orthodox Cathedral of the Birth of the Most Holy Mother of God (sobórNarodzeniaPrzenajświętszejBogurodzicy), St Anthony of Padua Church (kościółśw. Antoniego z Padwy) – a Roman Catholic temple, the White Stork Synagogue (Synagoga pod BiałymBocianem) and the Protestant-Augsbourg Divine Providence Church (kościółOpatrznościBożej). In order to strengthen the cooperation between the places of worship, the Council of the Mutual Respect District (DzielnicaWzajemnegoSzacunku) was appointed and has been in operation since 1996.
