Wroclaw is the capital of the Lower Silesia region in south west Poland, on the banks of the river Oder. As a city on the crossroads of the important historic Via Regia and Amber Road trading routes, it was under the sphere of influence of many Central European powers throughout history, including the Kingdom of Poland, Bohemia, Hungary, Prussia and the Austrian Empire. In the twentieth century it was a German city, called Breslau, till the end of World War II, when its German population was almost completely replaced by Poles transferred from the East. The city's architecture reflects this mixed heritage with old buildings influenced by many different architectural styles. The most notable buildings include the Main Market Square (Rynek Glowny), which dates from the 13th century, and St. Elizabeth Church with a 75m observational deck from which the panorama of the city can be enjoyed. Wroclaw has been selected as a 2016 European Capital of Culture.
