The Panorama was impressive - make sure that you ask for the translation headsets when you first get there, so you're not lost, as it is all in Polish. The explanation was very comprehensive and well done.

Very beautiful piece of work. There was also narration while you are guided around the panorama. Different languages available on earphones. Probably not too suitable for young kids, if they don't appreciate history, and start disturbing others.

The painting is well done, but it is not the painter talent what is important here. It is a national treasure of our soles - painted at times of crisis. The splendid size and the great idear to make it roud makes you feel you where at the middle of battel field.

This is one of Wroclaw's most visited attractions and it is easy to see why. It centres around one painting, which is approx 3 metres high and 120 metres long and housed in a round viewing gallery. The visit lasts for half an hour, during which time the battle of Raclawice is explain in some detail. Well worth a visit.

A good value visit in Central Wroclaw for all the family (from about seven years and up). Incredible painting presented as if inside a cylinder. Commentary in Polish but English headset available. One of my best ever visits. Don't miss it.

I certainly wouldn't consider myself an arty person (but I do like a bit of history) so I was surprised by how much I enjoyed seeing this panoramic painting. It's a fairly short activity, taking just 30mins to explore. You listen to a commentary of the painting to help you understand what it is and the history behind it. Actually... More

I wasnt as blow away as I thought I would be. The panorama was nice, well done, and historically and artistically interesting, but after a while of standing and listening to the recorded explanation I felt a bit bored.

Watching the panorama of Raclawice was recommended to us by Polish. I guess if you're not Polish, it has less impact on you.... Though the Panorama itself is surprising in its magnitude, and the way the artifacts (like sand, tree branches, etc.) are perfectly aligned with the picture, it is difficult to follow up with the audio guidance on to...
