  • Who is in Wroclaw, should visit the panorama. Although war scenes are shown all around, but you can discover many interesting details on the exact look.

  • This experience only takes half an hour but there's often a fair old wait to get in as places per tour are limited. The panorama is a huge painting, so big that it requires it's own building. It tells...  read more »

  • Quite pricey to get in for Poland but my God it was worth it. Amazingly detailed painting (the largest in the world I believe) at over 100m long and 8m wide in a 360 degree panoramic arrangement. Pretty breathtaking and the architecture of the place complimented the art superbly even if it looked a bit like a concrete crown from the outside. Entry numbers are limited as the viewing lasts 30 minutes so bear this in mind if you turn up on a high season weekend. Well worth a visit.
  • People around the world are coming to see this place. Absolutely fantastic breathtaking place. PANORAMA OF THE BATTLE OF RACŁAWICE in Wrocław, an impressive relic of 19th-century century mass culture, is one of only few examples of this genre preserved in Europe. The large painting (15x114m) 'transfers' the viewer into an altogether different time, a reality of its own, by artfully combining painterly devices (special kind of perspective) and technical effects (lighting, artificial terrain, dark and usually tortuous passage to the viewing platform). Panoram of the Battle of Racławice is the old The battle was fought on 4 April 1794 between the insurrectionist force of regulars and peasant volunteers (armed with scythes) under Kościuszko (1746–1817) himself and the Russian army commanded by General Alexander Tormasov. For the nation which had lost its independence, the memory of this glorious victory was particularly important. The National Exhibition, organized in Lwów in 1894, offered an excellent opportunity to realize Styka’s idea. Canvas, woven to order, was bought in Brussels, the specially built rotunda’s iron structure (designed by Ludwik Ramułt) in Vienna. The rotunda, located in Stryjski Park in Lwów, was ready in July 1893. The huge panorama painting was executed within 9 months, between August 1893 and May 1894. The official opening was on 5 June 1894. Since the very beginning, Panorama of the Battle of Racławice attracted enormous attention and brought crowds of tourists to Lwów. On average 75 000 viewers visited it every year. Have you seen bad seen Russians.?😁
  • Just a must-do in Wrocław. Don't think twice. Worth every PLN.
  • Definitely a must-see for anyone visiting Wroclaw, this is the first tourist thing we did and it was a fantastic introduction. The panoramic painting is extremely detailed and very well presented, it's a shame you get limited time to drink it up! Much care has been taken to immerse the visitor into the scene and convey some history. Don't worry, you get the option of non-Polish language audio tours when you enter the panorama itself. Entry is in timed slots (you may have to take a half-hour walk if you're as disorganised as me) and is totally 100% worth the price.
  • I was hesitant to go .. but I was wrong ... it is really worth it!
