1. "Wroclaw Railway Stations"

Edited by: Maria Zwierz
Publisher: Museum of Architecture in Wroclaw, 2006

„Wrocławskie dworce
kolejowe”, redakcja Maria Zwierz

"Wrocław Railway Stations" is one of the most important publications of the Wrocław Museum of Architecture. Despite the fact that both print runs have long been exhausted, interest in the book among readers has not waned. No wonder - beautifully published, containing previously unpublished architectural designs and iconographic materials from the rich collections of the Building Archives of Wroclaw, it was the first complete monograph of Wroclaw railroad stations. The pretext for its publication was the one hundred and sixtieth anniversary of the opening of the railroad line between Wroclaw and Berlin, which fell in 2006.

Discussing in detail selected buildings of Wroclaw railroad stations, the catalog part of the book was based on preserved architectural designs, iconographic materials and source texts. The last part of the publication consists of original German-language source texts (among them also author's comments by the station designers themselves!) and biographies of architects and builders of Wroclaw and Silesian railroads.
