Wroclaw was established in the middle of the Silesian Lowland, where Odra River branches and forms 12 picturesque islands. For centuries, representatives of many different nations, cultures and religions have encountered at this important European crossroad. Wroclaw was a member of the Hanseatic League, flourished and became rich thanks to the rash development of trade: the medieval Amber Road and Via Regia (Royal Highway) crossed there.
