4 Lower Silesia Lower Silesia a region situated in south-west Poland is ranked among the most beautiful and most attractive Polish and European regions. This is a consequence of the great diversity apparent in almost every aspect of the region from the lay of the land and variety of nature to culture and economy. Lower Silesia displays its uniqueness in this part of Europe due to the merging of cultures and traditions of numerous nations over the centuries. The region, comprising the Silesian Lowland (Nizina l ska), Silesian-Lusatian Lowland (Nizina l sko- u ycka), Sudeten Foothills (Przedgórze Sudeckie) and the Sudeten Mountains, has been a source of temptation for centuries with its beauty and mystery: vast mountain ranges and picturesque dells, crossed by rapid mountain streams whose currents murmur softly within the lowlands. It is a land with nooks of wild nature, abounding with numerous unique plants and animals, but also with beautiful cities and towns proudly displaying magnifi cent centuries-old monuments. The number and importance of the monuments is what distinguishes Lower Silesia from other parts of Poland. The routes of the Piast and Cistercian castles and vanishing professions, the network of underground tourist routes, border castles, monumental palaces, fi sh ponds near to Milicz and Przemków, national parks, nature reserves, rocky labyrinths, rock climbing crags, monuments of industrial architecture and sacral monuments registered on the UNESCO list, most Polish health resorts, ski runs, agrotourist farms for every budget, luxury hotels, opera houses, over a hundred bridges in Wroc aw, precious stone deposits, semiprecious stone deposits and even gold deposits. All of this can be found in Lower Silesia. Lower Silesia, as its name suggests, is a part of Silesia, an old and historic land situated (mostly) on a lowland. Lower Silesia constitutes the south-west part of Poland; in the west it borders on Germany, along the Lusatian Neisse line, and in the south on the Czech Republic; there is here mainly a mountain border running along the peaks of the Sudeten Mountains. The northern outskirts of Lower Silesia run along the vast lowland Lower Sile-

5 sian Forests (Bory Dolno l skie) and picturesque morainic hills, the Trzebnica Embankment (Wa Trzebnicki) and Barycz Valley. The Silesian Lowland stretches from east to west from Opole in the east to ary and aga in the west. The axis of the lowland is the Oder, the second longest river in Poland. The Oder is navigable from Upper Silesia right up to its estuary at the Szczecin Lagoon (Zalew Szczeci ski). But the domineering role in the Lower Silesian landscape is played by the Sudeten Mountains, the mountain chain in the southern part of the region that stretches from the southeast to north-west over a distance of nearly 300 km. Individual ranges of these mountains are characteristic of the diversity and variety of the landscape, and different geological structures. The highest mountain group of the Sudeten Mountains is the Karkonosze, with the nie ka peak at 1603 m above sea level. Together with the Sudeten foothills, the Sudeten Mountains are the most interesting part of Lower Silesia and those most visited by tourists. Forming part of the Sudeten Foothills south and south-west of Wroc aw are the granite Strzelin Hills (Wzgórza Strzeli skie), with the biggest granite quarry in Europe, and the l a Massif (Masyw l y), the mountain group mysteriously emerging among woodless plains of the lowland, with Mt. l a (góra l a) visible from dozens of kilometres away. The climate of the Silesian Lowland is mild, especially at the Oder; there is here the longest summer and the shortest winter in Poland. Winter starts in the Sudeten Mountains in October and may last sometimes into April. There are 12 natural landscape The area of Lower Silesia is km 2. Population The capital city of the province is Wroc aw, the fourth biggest city in Poland. parks, 2 national parks and numerous nature reserves in Lower Silesia. It is a health spot, with 11 health resorts. They are situated in a picturesque area and tempt with their specifi c microclimate and the charm of spa parks. Cities and towns full of historical buildings, magnifi cent churches, castles and magnate manors are testimony to the splendours of the past. There are also numerous industrial monuments here, old mines, adits, dams and strongholds. Over the years Lower Silesia has frequently changed its sovereignty. It has been ruled by Polish dukes from the Piast dynasty, Czech and Prussian kings, and Austrian and German emperors. Also the inhabitants of these lands have continuously changed over the centuries. Signs of human presence from the Palaeolithic period have been found here. Considerable areas of Silesia were inhabited from the beginning of our era by the Celts. The Vandals and Silings too were here, and in the 6th century Slavic tribes arrived. German colonisation began in the period of the rule of the Polish Piasts. As a result of World War 2, the German population had to leave Lower Silesia and was replaced with Poles from different parts of Poland, and in particular from the eastern frontiers lost by Poland. The present Lower Silesia province (województwo dolno l skie) roughly corresponds to its historical borders.

14 the so-called Bavarian Geographer. Wroc aw belonged to the Polish state from about 990 AD. The signifi cance of the city was consolidated in 1000 by establishing thanks to the efforts of Boles aw the Brave the bishopric, one of the fi rst in Poland along with Kraków and Ko obrzeg. The city, situated on the crossing of the trade route from south to north and from east to west, in the vicinity of a convenient passage across the Oder in the area of the present Sand Island (Wyspa Piaskowa) and Ostrów Tumski, later rapidly developed on the left river bank. In the 14th century Wroc aw was, along with Prague, one the biggest cities in central Europe. The Slavic l anie tribe used to have in this place a fortifi ed town. From the end of the 10th century Wroc aw, situated on the crossing of the trade routes, at a convenient passage across the Oder, belonged to the state of the fi rst Polish ruler, Mieszko I. In 1335 Wroc aw, together with Silesia, passed into the Czech reign, and in 1526 fell into the Austrian Habsburgs hands. After Austria lost the war with Prussia in 1741, Wroc aw was for over 200 years under Prussian and German reigns. At the end of WW2, 75% of the the city, announced as a fortress, was destroyed during the 2.5-month long siege by the Red Army. From 6 May 1945 Wroc aw was once again within Polish borders. 12
