Wroclaw to be the European Capital of Culture in Poland in 2016
We are very proud to inform you that on June 21, 2011, the independent selection panel announced that WROCLAW will be The European Capital of Culture in 2016. We hope that this title will be a part of long-term cultural strategy for Wroclaw. The European Capitals of Culture stands out as one of the European Union's must recognised cultural initiatives. Its primary objective is to highlight the richness and diversity of European cultures and at the same time to celebrate the features they share, encouraging a sense of belonging for Europeans of all ages and lifestyles. Over the years this event has evolved and its social and economic benefits have also become increasingly apparent and recognised.

On September 2nd, 2011 the Wroclaw Contemporary Museum was opened with their first exhibition titled "It begins in Wroclaw". The Museum is located in the old German shelter that was built in 1942 according to the project of a renowned Wroclaw architect, Richard Konwiarz. It is one of a few air-raid shelters raised in Wroclaw during the World War II. Between 2010-2011 it underwent a general overhaul and was adapted to the needs of temporary premises of Wroclaw Contemporary Museum. The renovated building comprises in temporary exhibition space, archive, urban activities area, 'live museum' - temporary arrangements by young artists, and a storage room. The roof of the shelter houses a KLUB-MUZEUM - a cafe featuring a panoramic view of the area. After the opening of the Museum's permanent home on Purkyniego St, the shelter will serve as a space for alternative artistic actions as well as additional collection storage rooms.
