Kosciuszko Square in Wroclaw
Before World War II, cultural life was centered around the city's most magnificent cinemas - the Tauentzien Theater and the Ufa-Theater - among others, but it also flourished in numerous clubs or cafes. Postwar Breslau took on an avant-garde flavor, thanks to the Mona Lisa Gallery, organized by Jerzy Ludwinski in the hall of the iconic International Book and Press Club. It was also at that time that DESA and the Music and Literature Club, which can still be found in Kosciuszko Square, were established. They were later joined by a branch of Wrocław's BWA dedicated to glass and ceramics.
Other Walks is a series of walks around the center of Wroclaw, organized in cooperation with the Office of City Promotion and Tourism and the Office of Economic Development. The aim is to promote looking at the city center from a different perspective, as everyone has their center somewhere else. The heart of the city beats in local businesses, residents and unusual stories - get to know these stories! The "Other Center" project is growing under the wings of the House of Peace Foundation.
