Wroclaw has an interesting history and has only been part of Poland since 1945. It is the largest city in western Poland and the European City of Culture in 2016. Indeed, culture lovers will not be disappointed with the Wroclaw opera house, and a huge selection of historic architecture to discover, including a 10th century cathedral and the 13th century market square. A huge list of museums, several shopping malls, sports, and a lively, famous nightclub scene ensure that your life in Wroclaw will never be dull. Wroclaw's economy is characterized by several large, international companies based in the city. In particular, Wroclaw is home to a number of hi-tech companies based in the Wroclaw technology park. In general, major industries include the manufacturing, chemicals, and electronics sectors. The pharmaceutical industry is also a major part of Wroclaw's economy, while the largest food service company in Poland also provides significant employment.
