This place will tell you the story of important battle in Polish history. It's all around you, and to have clear understanding, make sure you grap the headset in the start, and be quick to get to the beginning place of the battle, as the audio will guide you through the battle together with the painting. Shows nicely the military... More

Definitely worth seeing 19th century painting one of the most knowing Polish battle. Just one note – discussed part of painting should be exposed, i.e. by light.

One of the few, one of the first. The panorama is a 360 painting that survived over a century (including a war). It was very well shown with an audio description of particular fragments of the painting. Shows very well how armies looked back in the time, how people dressed and what did they believe (audio description is helpful). It... More

Highly recommendable for all. The painting is impressive and you can hear the comment in different languages about the history of it.

Spending 30 minutes for a single painting is a lot. But if you want to really appreciate this huge painting (15x114 meters) painting, this is not so much. Image history and the history hiding behind her is told by a fine lector, so you can visit this place without any preparation. But for me, 25 złoty for a one room... More

This is a "must see" if you want to experience some culture in Wroclaw. There is a great painting placed "around". It is 15m high and 114m long (yes, one hundred and fourteen metres long!). It is definitely a must see.

The Mesdag (also 360 degrees) painting in Den Haag is beautiful, but this 360 degrees painting is absolutely stunning. The paintwork is like watching a painting in 3D. Had to refocus my eyes several times at the part where the soldiers use there guns with gun smoke (absolutly stunning). The detail of paintwork is almost non-human. The history and reconstruction...

This is in my eyes a must see on your visit to Wroclaw. I have never seen anything quite like it both in terms of the scale of the image and the quality of the artwork. There is a false terrain created along the front of the artwork which works so well and really gives a sense of the painting... More

Well worth a visit. We went not really knowing what to expect. It was very well organised. The atmosphere was set as you walked down a dark corridor and were asked to keep silent. Walking in to the Panorama was quite a spectacle and atmospheric. The headset was great for the English commentary which was synchronised with the Polish commentary.

This is definitely a must see when in Wroclaw! Yes, you do have to pay for entrance but any description does not do it justice. Entrance is granted on the half hour. If you do not understand Polish it would be a good idea to grab a headset.
