                        If You ask me - I love both Wroclaw and Krakow

                        You can compare the two cities looking at my photos from Krakow:


                        Anyway - together with Warsaw, these are my favorite Polish cities

                        Talking about Wroclaw - in my opinion it's the most under rated Polish city - not so known as Krakow or Gdansk, but very beautiful with huge potencial.

                        However Wroclaw it's becoming more and more popular and number of tourist is growing very quickly (not only from Germany, which is obvious, but also from UK, Italy, Spain etc.). One of the main reasons is local airport and of course cheap flightes.

                        And this year Wroclaw entered the world haritage UNESCO list thanx to 'Hala Ludowa' building

                                Well I don't think Wrocław is better than Kraków, but surely is one of the prettiest cities in Poland. The Stary Rynek is in my opinion the most beautiful one in Poland and the Cathedral island is really a wonderful place (I adored it at night with the oil lamps, very dark and fascinating). DocentX showed us the best of Wrocław, but unfortunately there are many ugly commie-buildings among the pretty old ones. Kraków has a better "architectural unity" in the old town and Kazimierz districts, something that Wrocław doesn't have.

                                Anyway thanks a lot to DocentX for this very nice tour in one of my favourite Polish cities! Pity that your A530 seems to have some problems (internal error with the flash, that's probably the cause of the bright light problems in all the pics with grey sky).
