We love the University Square, especially the 'Szermierz' fountain which is situated in the centre of it. The interesting fact about it is that the four faces placed in the fountain symbolises the proffesors of the University. The water coming from their mouths is a methaphor of the most teachers' logorrhea.

This whole area is a absolutely stunning with some incredible architecture to gawp at. We passed by on a lovely walk from Market Square, along the Odra River on the way to Tumski. Make sure you don't miss the interior of Wroclaw University, where you can explore some of the main rooms built in sumptuous baroque and renaissance styles (so I'm told!)

This picturesque little square is part of a nice area to explore as you make your way to the Cathedral island of Ostrow Tumski. The buildings around the square are all examples of the wonderful architecture you find in pockets of the city, a large proportion of which are used as university buildings. The centrepiece of the square is the Fontanna z Szermierzem, which translated means Fountain of the Swordsman.
