The Path to Mutual Respect: A path through the Quarter of Mutual Respect
SELF-GUIDED TOUR OF WROCLAW Today it stands as an up-and-coming area of the city, owing its new-found popularity to cozy cafes and cultural niches along Wlodkowica St. as well as the booming night life in the passages off of Sw. Antoniego Street. However, until the year 2005, the Quarter was nothing more than a dilapidated neighborhood considered by most to be apart from, rather than a part of, the city of Wroclaw, as if the city walls (along Kazimierza Wielkiego Str.) that once separated this area from the main city still remained. In many areas, the damage from Nazi and Soviet occupations as well as the Polish-Communist rule still seemed fresh. Thanks to the efforts of both religious and non-religious leaders, city authorities and local non-governmental organizations throughout the city, this area has the potential to inspire cities throughout Europe.
