University of Wrocław
plac Uniwersytecki 1, 50-137 Wrocław, Poland
Studying the Ceiling in Wroclaw UniversityAfter walking carefully around the room looking at all the portraits that frame the windows, I sat still for quite awhile studying the ceiling above. I kept thinking that if I were a student and had to sit through lectures in this hall, I would never learn a thing, as I would be too distracted staring at the intricately painted ceiling and walls. Founded in 1702, a number of history’s luminaries have walked its halls. The University of Wroclaw was a real treat on our itinerary, with this beautiful room, a museum, and the “mathematician’s tower” with excellent bird’s eye views of the city.
