Wrocław, Poland

Wander through the winding brightly colored cobbled streets

These multicolored medieval facades aren’t all they seem. Every brightly colored brick tells a unique story – this is a place you don’t want to miss.

It may seem like they’ve been here for centuries, but the brilliantly bright buildings lining the city’s vast Market Square were only erected 60 years ago.

Painstakingly rebuilt one brick at a time from the smoldering ruins of World War II, you’ll see every inch of the restorers’ handiwork as you admire the impressive color-block facades through your Ray-Ban Chromance lenses.

Look out for the Gothic Town Hall’s astronomical clock and the quirky bronze-bear fountain in a corner of the square before delving deep into the vibrant, cobblestoned alleys of the historic Old Town.
