Situated a short drive east from the city centre, this UNESCO World Heritage Site was built as an exhibition hall in the 19th century to mark the 100th anniversary of Napoleon’s defeat.

The town of Żagań, just under a two-hour drive from Wrocław, is worth a day trip for its impressive historic architecture.

During the Second World War, Żagań had a number of Prisoner of War camps in its vicinity, with hundreds of thousands of people imprisoned here during that time. The Great Escape film was based on a true story from one of the camps here and guided tours are available.
An hour’s drive from Wrocław brings you to Jawar – a historic town most famous for its Churches of Peace. These three timber-framed churches, all designated UNESCO World Heritage Sites, were constructed by the Lutherans during the 17th century.
